Both sides have improved dramatically since that day and the Reds are currently seventh, looking to jump into sixth place with a win over Tottenham. Redknapp’s side have been the most entertaining this season and currently sit third, so victory for Liverpool would be a good scalp. The Reds are unbeaten at home since May and the last home defeat they suffered was against Spurs at the end of last season.
Carragher believes the encounter will be more even than the last two and with the return of Luis Suarez from suspension and Steven Gerrard from injury, Liverpool will have a strong squad to face Spurs. The 33 year old said: ‘I know they aren’t top but they’re great to watch. They play great football, very fast paced and they certainly showed that against us at White Hart Lane. That was our biggest defeat of the season and something we want to rectify. The game changed a bit towards the end when we were down to nine men and the scoreline flattered them to a certain extent but they played really well that day.’
The Reds defender continued: ‘We didn’t start well enough and they caught us out. They also won at Anfield towards the end of last season. That’s probably in the mind as much as anything. We realise we’re playing against one of the best teams in the league and it’s going to be very difficult.’
