How Liverpool can break Tottenham’s recent winning streak

Ange Postecoglou’s transformation at Tottenham Hotspur has been the feel-good story of the Premier League season thus far. The 58-year-old is the first Greek and first Australian to manage in the division, coming off the heels of successful stints with Yokohama F. Marinos and Celtic – the kind of managerial CV many English fans would turn their nose up at.

This Saturday, Liverpool travel to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium hoping to extend a streak of 19 games without a loss that has somewhat slipped under the public’s notice.


How can Jurgen Klopp’s Reds defeat Spurs?


Starting out well would be to score your own opportunities.

What a creative idea, wow. I’m surprised no one else has considered that.


But honestly, Liverpool must score when they get the chance, to paraphrase the legendary (great) Frank Lampard adage.


Tottenham’s two toughest games thus far have seen a small amount of luck. While Arsenal could have gone ahead by two goals in last week’s north London derby, they failed to do so, allowing Postecoglou’s team to twice attempt a comeback. As a result, Manchester United lost to Spurs 2-0.


Liverpool’s depth of freakish forwards ought to be helpful. Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, and Mohamed Salah are all capable of scoring goals off the bench. Tottenham’s high line is anticipated to leave a space that will only help the.

In five of their first eight games this season, Liverpool has given up the first goal. Not the best, but hey, that winning run is still going strong.


A squad as strong as Postecoglou’s Tottenham, meanwhile, might not be so understanding. Spurs will penalize Liverpool if they are made to engage in their self-destructive high-line shenanigans. Those who score early may simply take off with it.
