Five key battles that will decide Liverpool vs. Spurs
We’re now just a few hours away from the gigantic EFL Cup clash between Liverpool and Tottenham at Anfield.
The truth remains that neither club will have this competition at the summit of their priority list, but this fixture traditionally grabs the footballing world and will do so once again as the two heavyweights battle for a place in the next round. Many people are expecting the Reds to run out winners, but despite their relatively impressive league form, Liverpool certainly have question marks surrounding their defensive capabilities.
Unlike Liverpool, Tottenham boast a solid and reliable defence under the tutelage of Mauricio Pochettino with the north Londoners laying claim to the strongest defensive unit in the Premier League – second behind Real Madrid in the continent’s big five divisions.
Today’s clash between the two footballing giants will likely attract a major global audience keen to witness a goal-fest at Anfield, as this fixture has historically thrown up big results in the past.
