Premier League Match Preview: Tottenham vs Liverpool

Tottenham have been poor of late, winning just one of their last five matches in all competitions. They had to come from behind to rescue their FA Cup tie at Middlesbrough and their recent record against Liverpool is thoroughly underwhelming.

The Reds, meanwhile, are unbeaten in 37 league matches and have won 11 of their last 12 in all competitions, with the sole blip on the record coming in their Carabao Cup defeat at Aston Villa. Having kept a clean sheet in their last five league matches, Liverpool have the means to shut out a Tottenham side without star striker Harry Kane.

Spurs may have lost only two home league matches this season, but a rampant Liverpool side are backed to come away with all three points.
