Build up to the match
The name Super Sunday will definitely be living up to its name as it has prepared a mouth-watering tie in the Premier League, with last season’s runners-up Tottenham Hotspur set to face against Merseyside giants Liverpool. The two sides are perennial seekers of Champions League qualification and three points is a must for the both of them. Of course, only one can claim the win.
Kickoff: Sunday, 22nd October 2017, 04:00PM England time
Venue: Wembley Stadium, London, England
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino won’t be able to call on his two sturdy midfielders Victor Wanyama and Moussa Dembele, as both players are nursing injuries. Likewise, speedy winger Erik Lamela is also out with a hip injury.
Liverpool also have quite a considerable number of sidelined players with Senegal striker Sadio Mane out with a hamstring injury. Midfielder Adam Lallana is also unavailable for selection, while the same could be said for English full-back Nathaniel Clyne. Hungarian shotstopper Adam Bogdan is also sidelined for a long-term injury.
Spurs have finally got their form going in recent weeks, with fantastic wins against Everton and Huddersfield. Super striker Harry Kane appears to finally have found his shooting boots and is now firing on all cylinders. They are definitely favourites to win against Liverpool come Sunday.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has found it hard to steer the Reds to consistent form in their recent outings. Draws against Burnley and Newcastle United will certainly not help boost confidence. The away side must get their head in the game full time if they are to clinch a win against Spurs.
Spurs are certainly the favourites coming into this match. Harry Kane appears back in form and the Lilywhites have apparently gotten rid of their Wembley Stadium hoodoo. Liverpool, meanwhile, are in shambles at the moment, unable to get themselves into a consistent run of form. This match appears set for a win for the London giants.
Spurs 1-0 Liverpool
