After 12 games of the 2020/21 Premier League season, just goal difference separates Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the league table.
Jose Mourinho’s Spurs currently lead the top flight of English football, owing to their superior goal difference over the Reds, and they’ll be looking to underline their status as title challengers with a win at Anfield tonight.
Tottenham will have to overcome a run of five consecutive defeats to Liverpool (all competitions) if they are to remain at the top of the Premier League though.
The north London side have just one win in their last 26 Premier League trips to Anfield too, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool losing just one of their last 15 games against Spurs home or away.
Liverpool have also been formidable at Anfield this season, winning each of their six home league games, scoring at least two goals in each match.
Spurs are unbeaten away from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this season though, with only Manchester United and Leicester City winning more points on the road in the Premier League.
Mourinho has never won an away match against any of Jurgen Klopp’s sides though, with two draws and three defeats against the German manager.
Joel Matip is Liverpool’s only new injury concern, with Gareth Bale and Erik Lamela missing out for Spurs.
