It has been a mixed start to the New Year for Liverpool, and now they face another tough challenge as Tottenham visit Anfield on Sunday.
The Reds bounced back from two consecutive defeats to win 3-0 at Huddersfield Town on Tuesday. The result came after defeats to Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion in the league and FA Cup respectively.
Following the win during the midweek, the Reds moved back into the third spot as Chelsea lost at home to Bournemouth. The Reds are currently placed third with 50 points, but Tottenham are not far behind in the fifth spot with 48 points.
Spurs claimed a morale-boosting 2-0 home win over Manchester United on Wednesday, and they are unbeaten in their last seven games. The North London side can climb above the Reds into the top four with a win on Sunday.
However, the Reds have been quite impressive against the top sides under Jurgen Klopp, and we don’t see them losing against Spurs at Anfield. Klopp’s Reds are unbeaten in their last 12 Premier League meetings against other top-six sides. They are also the only side to have defeated Manchester City this season.
Earlier this season, Spurs registered an emphatic 4-1 win over the Reds at Wembley Stadium.
