Liverpool vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Just a couple of points separate Liverpool and Tottenham as the race for a Champions League spot intensifies.

Liverpool recovered from a shock FA Cup exit by easing to a comfortable win away at Huddersfield Town.

Emre Can’s deflected opener was added to by goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohammed Salah.

Tottenham put in a superb display to beat Manchester United at Wembley with Christian Eriksen opening the scoring after 11 seconds!

A ridiculous Phil Jones own goal sealed the win as Spurs moved to within two points of fourth placed Chelsea.

Liverpool & BTTS – 11/4 with Betfair

Team news
Virgil van Dijk is expected to overcome an illness to start here having only been fit enough for the substitutes bench against Huddersfield.

Captain Jordan Henderson returned on Tuesday, however could miss out here for Georgino Wijnaldum.

Spurs signed Lucas Moura on deadline day, but is likely to make his debut from the substitutes bench.

There is a good chance Mauricio Pochettino will name the same team that beat United on Wednesday.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Karius; Gomez, Matip, van Dijk, Robertson; Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Can; Salah, Firmino, Mane
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Trippier, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Davies; Dier, Dembele; Heung-Min Son, Dele, Eriksen; Kane
