It will be an emotional Anfield that hosts this table-topping clash, following the passing of ex-Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier on 14 December. The champions and their likeliest challengers enter this midweek clash tied on points and record (W7, D4, L1).
Recent H2H history clearly favours Liverpool, who are on a five-match winning streak against ‘Spurs’ in all competitions. In fact, Liverpool have now played 51 matches against the consistent ‘Top Six’ sides of 2017, 2018 and 2019 under Jürgen Klopp, coming out the other end with 24 wins (D19, L8).
Though favourites yet again, the ‘Reds’ have drawn half of their last six competitive matches - five of which featured under 2.5 total goals. At home, however, Liverpool have a 100% record in the Premier League (PL) so far - scoring in all six first halves and leading at half-time in four. All six also featured over 2.5 total goals, and Liverpool scored their last goal after the 75th minute in five.NB: Team no longer available
