Spurs’ Under 23 side return to Premier League 2 action on Saturday afternoon (the game starts at 15:00pm) as they take on Liverpool at The Lamex Stadium. Wayne Burnett’s side last played a competitive match on the 31st August, and they impressively won that match 4-3 against League Two side Stevenage FC. Spurs haven’t lost to Liverpool in a competitive game at this level since September 2017, and on that day Liverpool fielded a very strong and experienced side. Liverpool are unbeaten at this level so far this season, but sit only one place and one point above Spurs in the league table, in sixth place. Last season Spurs did the double over Liverpool, winning 4-3 at their training ground, before then winning 4-1 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium towards the end of the 2020/21 season. Some Liverpool players to look out for tomorrow include forwards Kaide Gordon and Max Woltman, and also talented defender Billy Koumetio. This will be a difficult game for Spurs on Saturday, but hopefully Wayne Burnett’s side can record a good result. I would like to wish the team all the very best of luck for the match, and I will be going to Stevenage soon after the Under 18’s match against Reading finishes to report on the game. My match reports of both games will be out at some point on Sunday.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Oluwayemi, Fagan-Walcott, Lyons-Foster (c), Omole, Cesay, Matthew Craig, White, John, Devine, Clarke, Markanday.

Previous meeting: Spurs 4-1.
My score prediction: 2-2.
My one to watch: Talented forward and England Under 18 international Kaide Gordon.
