Spurs under 23’s versus Liverpool: (match preview)

After putting in a very good first half performance against Chelsea on Monday evening, before eventually losing by three goals to two, Spurs’ under 23 side can take confidence from that game going into Saturday’s Premier League 2 game against Liverpool (the game starts at 15:00pm) at the Liverpool Academy. Last season in our two Premier League two games against Liverpool, we managed to score eight goals against them (we won both games four-nil). Tomorrow’s hosts have made a decent start to the league season, and as both clubs prepare for their final competitive game of 2020, Liverpool occupy fifth spot in the league, while Spurs sit in tenth place on 14 points, two points behind Liverpool. Spurs have only won once away to Liverpool since the Premier League 2 was formed for the 2016/17 season, but they have been unlucky in a number of those games, all of which were very competitive and close games. Liverpool play good attacking football, which is played at a high intensity, and they have a team of very good players as well. This will be another demanding game of football for Wayne Burnett’s side, but I’m sure that it will be a very entertaining one (it is sadly not being shown on Liverpool TV), and I shall be tweeting score updates on my Twitter account. Finally, I would like to wish the team all the very best of luck for their final match of 2020.

My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Whiteman, Okedina (c), Lyons-Foster, Omole, Lavinier, Marsh, White, Scarlett, Thorpe, Clarke, Etete.

Subs from: Kurylowicz, Skinner, Pochettino, Pedder, Mukendi.

Injured/unavailable: Alfie Devine (suspended).

Doubtful: Malachi Fagan-Walcott, Dilan Markanday.

Previous meeting: Spurs four-nil Liverpool. 

My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.

My one to watch: Liverpool’s 18 year old forward Layton Stewart, who has already scored 13 goals from just nine appearances for their under 18 side this season (he is the leagues top scorer), but he is yet to find the net for Liverpool’s under 23 side in the Premier League 2.
