Tottenham welcome high-flying Liverpool to North London for matchday 18 of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign.
TOTTENHAM RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Despite having to deal with loads of Covid19 cases, Tottenham will prepare to host Jurgen Klopp’s men. Tottenham has had three successive matches called off due to the pandemic so fitness levels will be tested as they take the field for the first time since the 5th of this month. New manager Antonio Conte has made an instant impact, going undefeated in his first four Premier League matches (W3 D1) securing three clean sheets. Their last Premier League outing was a comfortable 3-0 victory over struggling Norwich. Lucas Moura opened the scoring with a long-range effort before Davinson Sanchez and Son Heung-Min rounded up the scoring. Tottenham now sits seventh in the Premier League table – four points adrift Champions League places. Sergio Regulion and Emerson Royal are ruled out with injuries. Bryan Gil, Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min, and Oliver Skipp are unavailable due to Covid19.
LIVERPOOL RESULTS, STATS, SQUAD
Liverpool overcame an early scare to beat Newcastle United 3-1 at Anfield on Thursday night – their 2,000th Premier League win, an eighth consecutive win across all competitions, and a sixth in a row in the Premier League. Goals from Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah, and Trent Alexander-Arnold sealed another crucial three points which saw Liverpool keep pace with Manchester City, whom they trail by just one point at the top of the Premier League table. The Reds have now scored in an all-time club record of 32 consecutive games and are also on a club record of scoring in 26 successive away games across all competitions, while their tally of 48 goals from just 17 outings this season is eight clear of the next highest scorers. Liverpool lost only once this term – a league-low tally. Jurgen Klopp’s men has come out victorious in their last seven meetings against Tottenham. Divock Origi, Nat Phillips, Harvey Elliott, and Adrian all remain sidelined through injury. Fabinho, Van Dijk, and Curtis Jones are out with Covid 19.
