The most exciting duel this weekend in the Premier League seems to be the clash between Tottenham and Liverpool. Both sides have huge expectations for this season and both have started their campaigns in the fifth gear. There’s no doubt we’re gonna see a lot of excitement on Saturday afternoon at the Wembley, but who is gonna be the happier side when the ref blows the final whistle? Maybe the answer to that question lies in this Tottenham vs Liverpool match preview!
The Spurs started the new Premier League season very well, winning three games in a row. But, then they lost to Watford in the previous round. It seemed that their players were very tired in that game. The good news is that nearly two weeks have passed, so they should be alright now. Or, should they?
The list of injured players in Tottenham squad is very long, plus those guys that are injury-free are probably very tired considering that they played their roles in the international matches last week. This particularly goes for Tottenham’s best player, Harry Kane, who seemed really exhausted while playing for England.
Of course, the game with Liverpool is a big stake, so these players will probably have enough motivation to keep themselves going despite the tiredness they’re feeling. Liverpool are currently on the top spot, but with a win, Tottenham could take their place.
Sure, the season has just started, but judging by the previous rounds, the title race is going to be very unpredictable and even a single point may mean a lot of difference next year. Therefore, you can be sure that the Spurs will give all they got in this match and with the support of their fans, their chances seem good. At home, this team has been sensational, winning 8 out of 10 Premier League matches in 2018.
The Reds are currently topping the table after winning each of the four Premier League games they played so far. To be frank, they had a pretty easy schedule and their biggest challenge comes this weekend.
But, Liverpool seem extremely powerful at the moment. In fact, many believe that the Reds haven’t been this strong in years. They have amazing players in all parts of the pitch, including defense, which was their Achilles’ heel last season. They’ve allowed only one goal so far and even that goal didn’t come as a result of poor defending. It came as a result of goalkeeper’s error. Of course, Alisson shouldn’t be ostracized for that mistake. After all, he’s been playing rally great since he’s joined the Reds.
The fact that they’ve been sensational at the back does not mean that Liverpool haven’t been doing well in the attack. On the contrary. They’ve already scored nine goals, four of which were scored by Sadio Mane, who’s in a sensational form right now. Their second-best scorer is Mo Salah, who is expected to start playing even better pretty soon.
