    Premier League LIVE! Tottenham v Liverpool

    Probable Lineups…

    Tottenham Hotspur (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Dier, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose, Capoue, Bentaleb, Lamela, Eriksen, Chadli, Adebayor

    Tottenham Hotspur almost have a complete squad except for Roberto Soldado and Kyle Walker, with the later being sideline for quite a while. Although Mauricio Pochettino will have Kyle Naughton back after serving his suspension, he may only have a place on the bench given the form of new signing Eric Dier. Nacer Chadli who didn’t feature in his team’s first game of the new campaign could start against Liverpool after he netted two goals in the 4-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers.

    Liverpool (4-5-1): Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Gerrard, Allen, Sterling, Sturridge, Balotelli

    Liverpool, unlike their opponents Spurs, have a rather long list of injury worries with Daniel Agger, Adam Lallana, Fabio Borini, and Jon Flanagan out, while Glen Johnson is still a doubt after picking up a knock in his previous match. The big news for Brendan Rodgers is that latest addition Mario Balotelli is set to make his Reds debut after join the club from AC Milan. Javier Manquillo returns to the starting line-up after missing out against Manchester City while Alberto Moreno looks to put his unconvincing debut behind him as he starts at left-back.

    What the fans are saying…

    Remember this?

    Last season when Tottenham Hotspur hosted Liverpool, it was a night to remember as Luis Suarez and co thrashed them at home 5-0. However, without the Uruguayan this season, can the Reds do it again, or will a revitalized Spurs exact a long anticipated revenge.

    Stats to get your head around…

    The Reds' 5-0 win at White Hart Lane in December last season ended a run of five consecutive Premier League home wins for Spurs against Liverpool.

    Liverpool won six points against Tottenham in the Barclays Premier League last season with an aggregate score of 9-0.

    Liverpool's defeat at Manchester City last Monday was their first away from home in the Premier League in 2014 (W7 D2 L1).

    Tottenham have won five of their last six Premier League games (L1).

    Eric Dier is the first defender in Premier League history to score in his first two appearances.

    Etienne Capoue has made more passes (196) than any other Premier League player this season.

    Liverpool have scored 60 Premier League goals in 2014, seven more than any other side.

    After assisting only one goal in his first 10 PL appearances for Tottenham, Erik Lamela assisted two goals in the space of seven first half minutes vs QPR last weekend.

    Daniel Sturridge has only scored in two of his last eight Premier League games.

    Liverpool have not lost back to back games in the Premier League since December 2013.
