Three battles that will decide Liverpool vs. Spurs
Liverpool and Spurs have had quite contrasting seasons to date. While the Reds started very strongly, the Lilywhites were not at their best until the latter weeks of 2016, and at that time Liverpool tailed off, notching just the one victory in the calendar year of 2017 so far.
Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino will be all too aware of the importance of this fixture, then. With Arsenal doing their ‘Annual Arsenal’ and both Manchester clubs looking strong again, dropped points will increase the questions about a potential top four finish. Whether Chelsea can be caught or not, Spurs currently look the team most likely to push them deep into the season, but even they are only four points away from fifth.
