Spurs’ Under 23 side face Liverpool at their Academy on Saturday (the game starts at 12:00pm), in their latest Premier League 2 fixture. Spurs won 2-1 against Liverpool in the reverse fixture, earlier in the season, in a game in which they conceded early on in. However, a good second half performance during that game against a good Liverpool side which included Kaide Gordon, was enough to win the game. Liverpool are currently in eighth place in Premier League 2 Division One, four points behind sixth placed Spurs. Liverpool are a good team, and with players such as Northern Ireland international and full-back Conor Bradley, highly skilful winger Kaide Gordon and top scorer Max Woltman all players who could possibly start against Spurs on Saturday, this will be another difficult game for Wayne Burnett’s side. Still in search of their first competitive win of 2022, this would be a great game for Spurs to win. However, with Malachi Fagan-Walcott and Matthew Craig both suspended for this game, and with Harvey White very possibly making the first team squad once again, Spurs could really miss these players for the game on Saturday. I have already arrived in Liverpool, as the match starts early on the Saturday. I would like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the game.
My predicted lineup: Lo-Tutala, Cesay, Muir, Omole, Lusala, Lavinier (c), Robson, Bennett, Devine, Mundle, Santiago.
Subs from: Oluwayemi, Sayers, Kyerematen, Williams.
Injured/unavailable: Malachi Fagan-Walcott (suspended), Matthew Craig (suspended).
Previous meeting: Spurs 2-1.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Max Woltman. The Liverpool player has scored five league goals and provided one assist, from 19 Premier League 2 appearances this season. He is Liverpool’s top scorer in the Premier League 2 this season.
