Prediction, team news, and lineups for the Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool matchup

The key matchup on Saturday night in North London will feature Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, who will both be looking to extend their winning runs in the Premier League.


The Reds most recently defeated Leicester City 3-1 in the EFL Cup, but the Lilywhites most recently drew 2-2 with fierce rivals Arsenal last weekende


Ange Postecoglou left enemy territory having led Tottenham to a hard-earned point against Arsenal, who twice took the lead through a Cristian Romero own goal and a Bukayo Saka penalty. This is a feat that none of Antonio Conte, Jose Mourinho, or Nuno Espirito Santo managed during their disastrous tenures as Tottenham’s manager.


Romero’s second-half foul also gave Arsenal the early second-half penalties, which Saka converted. However, Son Heung-min saved Romero’s face on both occasions by scoring a brace with two assists from James Maddison to put an end to Spurs’ three-game losing record at the Emirates.


Although Son’s second goal was undoubtedly the result of luck, as Jorginho was robbed of the ball by Maddison while daydreaming, few would disagree that Postecoglou’s team deserved at least a share of the spoils in a typically chaotic derby. They also continued their recent trend of scoring at least twice in every Premier League game while Postecoglou was in charge.


As a result of last weekend’s victories by Liverpool and Brighton & Hove Albion, Spurs have dropped from second to fourth in the standings, joining Carlo Ancelotti, Pep Guardiola, and Craig Shakespeare as the only Premier League managers to have their team score twice in their first six games in charge.


Tottenham did not have to worry about EFL Cup matters over the past few days due to their penalty shootout defeat at Fulham, but while the extended recovery period might be extremely beneficial against an in-form Liverpool, giving up five goals in their last three games will not.

The Reds gave their supporters an early sense of doom and gloom before turning the tide in their favor and winning 3-1 for the fourth game in a row when Leicester came to Anfield for the third round of the EFL Cup on Wednesday. This was classic 2023-24 Liverpool style.


Kostas Tsimikas was left in a heap with three minutes left, but the Foxes were permitted to charge forward and got on the board first through Kasey McAteer, and they miraculously made it into halftime with a one-goal advantage.
