Spurs v Liverpool: (match preview)
Date: Tuesday 25th October 19:45pm
Live: Sky Sports 1
Referee: Jonathan Moss
Head2Heads: 1-1, 1-1, 0-0, 3-2 Liverpool, 3-0 Liverpool.
Liverpool were with out a doubt the toughest team that the lads have come up against this season, we faced Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side back in August and the reds attacking style of play and intensity caused us problems throughout the match, we were quite fortunate to end up drawing that game 1-1. Liverpool have been in red hot form this season, Klopp’s men have won eight of their eleven games that they have played in all competitions, and the reds have been playing superb pressing football, quite similar to ours in style. Anfield is a fortress and tonight’s game is going to be an incredibly tough one, regardless of the team Mauricio Pochettino fields I have full faith in his team selection and I know that we can defeat Klopp’s albeit with a youthful side. Klopp may also field a weakened side but Liverpools danger men Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane could all start. Liverpools defence is not their fortieth and our attack could cause many problems for the home side tonight. It’s going a fantastic occasion for the fans, with so many traveling up to Liverpool, the atmosphere at the world famous ground is going to be special and hopefully we can progress to the quarter finals of the EFL cup.
