Spurs’ Under 21 side face Liverpool on Friday evening, at Stevenage’s Lamex Stadium (the game starts at 19:00pm). Spurs recorded a good 0-0 draw with the current Premier League 2 Division One champions Manchester City last Sunday, and they’ll surely go in to the fixture with Liverpool in good confidence, after playing so well against Manchester City. Liverpool have lost one match, drawn one and also won one, from their first three Premier League 2 fixtures of the 2022/23 season. In their most recent Premier League 2 fixture they won 1-0 against Blackburn Rovers. This will be another difficult game for Spurs, but they’ll be looking to get a good result against Liverpool, after losing to them in their last meeting in this competition, last season. This will be another good game of football, and I’d like to wish Spurs all the very best of luck for the match.
My predicted lineup: (4-2-3-1) Maguire, Cesay, Muir, Sayers, Ashcroft, Craig, John (c), Mundle, Donley, Mathurin, Santiago.
Subs from: Hayton, Dorrington, Abbott, Robson, Williams.
Doubtful: Jamie Bowden, Alfie Devine.
Previous meeting: Spurs 1-7.
My score prediction: Spurs 2-1.
My one to watch: Oakley Cannonier (18). The Liverpool forward scored a remarkable total of 28 goals from 26 Under 18 Premier League South appearances for Liverpool’s Under 18 side last season, as well as providing four assists. Oakley started the Liverpool Under 21’s last Premier League 2 fixture.
