Tottenham had a good entrance into the season with first three victories, however, the things didn’t look that bright in their most recent clash when the side visited Watford a weekend before the international break. They were huge favorites and the game came after their victory on the road to Manchester United, however, proved many of their fans to be wrong.
They were better at the start, too much of the ball possession but not really threatening situations created. Still, they took the lead first via an own goal at the start of the second halftime. However, hosts were the ones who moved the ball better later and were much more dangerous in attack. Goals from Deeney and Cathcart in 69th and 76th minute. The side now stands with three points less than leading trio of Liverpool, Chelsea, and Watford.
Kane and Moure should lead their attack in 3-5-2 formation. Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is out injured, as well as midfielder Dele Alli. Juan Foyth and Vincent Janssen are long-term absentees.
Liverpool, on the other side, couldn’t start the season better as the team comes from all four victories in Premier League so far. After victories over West Ham, Crystal Palace and Brighton without a single goal conceded, the Reds had stronger test away to Leicester two weeks ago.
However, they appeared really strong in the first part and decisive to take the victory scoring goals via Mane in 10th and Firmino just before the halftime. Ghezzal reduced to 1:2 in the 63rd minute in the second part that belonged completely to the home side and the final result could have been different on some other day.
Salah, Firmino, and Mane should lead their attack in the 4-3-3 version of the formation. Offensive Adam Lallana is injured, as well as defender Dejan Lovren and midfielder Alex Oxlade Chamberlain. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has a hand problem, but anyway isn’t expected to start.
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in Tottenham’s last 5 games (Premier League).
This match comes as a real test for both teams ahead of their Champions League duties next midweek. Tottenham will be looking to improve and impress after their defeat last time out, however, the Reds are stronger each season and it seems like a completely unpredictable game in an aspect of the final winner. However, we should see an entertaining and with both teams approaching in an offensive manner. Goals look like granted here.
