Premier League

Liverpool host Spurs in a must win Premier League game as Jurgen Klopp’s team continue to chase the quadruple.

With just four games remaining in the league season, Liverpool are running out of time to find a way past City.

On Saturday, Liverpool will face the tricky task of tackling fifth-placed Spurs – with Tottenham just two points adrift of Arsenal as they search for a top-four finish.


There is no doubt plenty of attention will focus on the Liverpool-Spurs battle before Manchester City then face Newcastle on Sunday, when they could quite possibly need to once again leapfrog the Reds.


If history is anything to go by, the clash between the Reds and Tottenham should be an enthralling thriller, with eight of the last nine matches between the two teams producing over 2 goals.

Importantly, Klopp should have a full squad to select from after coming through the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-final in midweek against Villarreal, with no fresh injury worries. Roberto Firmino travelled to Spain in midweek but wasn’t in the squad. Although he is nearing a return, it’s unlikely that he would be pushed into the starting lineup.

Unlike Liverpool, Spurs have a number of key players out at the moment. Japhet Tanganga and Matt Doherty both have knee injuries, Sergio Reguilon is battling with a groin strain, while Oliver Skipp continues to recover from surgery.

Liverpool have notably won their last 12 home matches in the league, while also scoring at least two goals in eight of their last nine home matches. Furthermore, the Reds have scored at least two goals in their last six home matches against Tottenham in all competitions, and Sadio Mané could well find himself back on the scoresheet.

The reverse fixture ended 2-2 with Andy Robertson being sent off for Liverpool, and although games between these clubs are generally extremely tight, this one should go the way of Liverpool.
