Liverpool v Tottenham match preview
Top of the table Liverpool host a struggling Tottenham side in the Premier League match of the weekend. Liverpool dropped their first points of the season last weekend when they drew 1-1 to Manchester United which ended their winning streak at 17, one off the record set by Manchester City two seasons ago.
Klopp will not care much about the record, but he was annoyed at the fact that United’s goal stood in the first place and he believed there was a foul in the buildup. However, overall, he should be happy that they did not lose the match and got a late goal in order to still keep a six-point cushion over Manchester City.
Tottenham also needed a late goal to draw 1-1 with Watford which was the latest of their poor results especially considering that Watford are bottom of the table without a win this season. Spurs have had very bad results in the last few game weeks losing to Brighton 3-0 prior to the international break while losing 7-2 to Bayern in the Champions League before that.
So far this season in the Premier League Spurs have only won three out of nine games and are 13 points behind Liverpool. They will be encouraged that they beat Red Star Belgrade 5-0 last night in the Champions League.
Liverpool play tonight against Genk in Belgium with Salah returning to the squad after missing out in the weekend's match, but Alexander Arnold and Matip miss out with through illness. Klopp will be hoping the two defenders will be back in time for the weekend's match.
Liverpool have not looked at their best the last few game weeks, but Spurs have been worse, and the squad seems more uneasy which is why Liverpool will probably come out victorious.
Predicted result- Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham
