Table toppers Liverpool football club is set to take on fifth place Tottenham Hotspurs in what is set to be a thrilling encounter on Saturday. Harry Kane-led Tottenham will look to come back to winning ways after a 2-1 slender loss to Watford, who looks like the real dark horses this season.
Ahead of the match, the big news coming from Tottenham’s camp is that Dele Alli and World -cup winning Goalkeeper and captain Hugo Loris will not be able to make it to the final squad against Liverpool due to injuries; Alli is out with a hamstring Injury whereas Loris is carrying a thigh injury sustained against Manchester United. This news comes as a major blow for Spurs as both the players are among the biggest star-performers in their team.
Liverpool finished runners-up in the UEFA Champions League (Europe’s most prized club trophy) after losing out to Real Madrid, but after reinforcements in the summer, Liverpool looks all set to finally challenge for the title for the first time in over two decades. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur put the pressure on last time to secure a third-place finish in the league.
Tottenham have not won a single title in the last decade and every year they put the pressure but that comes short of the desired finish. Moving into a new stadium this season will reignite hopes for Tottenham fans and players in their pursuit for a trophy as the world-class stadium will give them a big-club feel and experience, which will also attract star players across the globe and at the same time instil a higher sense of achieving glory.
Both Liverpool and Tottenham are loaded with star-studded world class attack. Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Liverpool’s Mohammed Salah are among the best forwards in the game. Mo Salah won the golden boot last season and was followed by Harry Kane in the second position. Kane has also won the golden boot two times in the last four seasons.
Following are the players to watch out for in the Tottenham vs Liverpool fixture this Saturday:
Players to watch out for:
Liverpool: Mohammed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Xherdan Shaqiri
Tottenham: Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Trippier
Liverpool will be given a major lift in the absence of Tottenham’s Alli and Loris but Tottenham still comprises a good squad to go out and get something out of this, Liverpool however, will go in as favourites
