Liverpool v Tottenham: The three key battles

However, Liverpool face a stern test this Sunday when they welcome surging Tottenham to Merseyside, but Klopp told reporters on Friday that qualifying for the Champions League would make the current campaign a triumph in his estimation. The Tottenham captain has kept 10 clean sheets in the Premier League so far, with a save percentage of 69%, a considerable improvement on Liverpool duo Simon Mignolet (59%) and Loris Karius (45%). But perhaps, in order to win away at the bigger sides, you need to stop thinking of them as bigger sides. But in the end I think to fulfil our dreams at some point we have to overtake all of them.

Tottenham Hotspur will be ready to handle whatever Liverpool throw at them at Anfield this weekend according to Mauricio Pochettino.

With Manchester City seemingly set to canter to the top-flight crown this season, the rest of the pack are left scrapping for seconds, and technically thirds and fourths as well, as the final three Champions League qualifying positions remain the only prizes left up for grabs. This Sunday, two of these five teams - Liverpool and Tottenham - go head to head at Anfield.

After the wobble of losing back-to-back to Swansea and West Brom, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp would have been relieved that his side coasted to a routine 3-0 victory at Huddersfield on Tuesday.

Spurs' problems at Anfield are not a one-off.

In Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Liverpool possess a duo who will give full-backs sleepless nights in the build-up to matches, and most likely nightmares after.

Liverpool have lost one of their last 23 home Premier League games against Spurs (W15 D7).

Jurgen Klopp will also name his strongest side for this huge battle against a side just two points behind the Reds in the league table.

"You can talk about trophies and winning the Premier League, but Liverpool have got to get back to being a Champions League club". It's exceedingly rare that a new signing plays right away for a Mauricio Pochettino side, and Lucas only has 72 minutes of football under his belt this season. However, Spurs are now on a streak of four consecutive defeats in away games to Top Six rivals.

Due to longstanding injury issues not to mention his energy sapping style of play that requires a great deal of physical exertion, Dembele doesn't usually play three games in a week but following his excellent performance against United it would be a surprise not to see him start the game.
