Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur meet for the first time since last season’s Champions League final with both teams in contrasting form.
Jurgen Klopp’s men currently top the Premier League with a six-point lead over defending champions and title rivals Manchester City, but their perfect start came to an end at Old Trafford last weekend as Manchester United held them to a 1-1 draw.
Spurs, meanwhile, can’t buy a league win. Mauricio Pochettino’s side have picked up one Premier League victory from the last four matches they’ve played which included a 3-0 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion.
Pochettino, though, can be encouraged by their midweek performance in the Champions League; their 5-0 triumph over Serbian gants Red Star Belgrade was what the doctor ordered, but understandably the European champions are a different kettle of fish especially know they are at full strength.
Elsewhere, City welcome newly-promoted Aston Villa, knowing a win reduces Liverpool’s lead to three points albeit for 24 hours. Everton are looking to build on their much-needed win last time out when they visit Brighton.
Chelsea, who are now on a roll under Frank Lampard, face a different test to Ajax when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor. Arsenal will be hoping to enact revenge on Crystal Palace, the last away side to leave the Emirates with all three points, whilst Manchester United face a tricky challenge at Norwich City.
