Game of round 22 from the English Premier League takes place in London as Tottenham welcome Liverpool to their impressive home for this top of the bill tussle. This match will be shown live on Sky Sports from 5.30pm on Saturday 11 January. We expect a capacity audience in attendance with millions more following the live TV coverage.
A Closer Look
Live football involving two sides who contested last season’s Champions League final, this promises to be a thriller from the first whistle to the final kick of the ball. Will Spurs gain revenge for that European cup final loss and put a dent in their opponent’s title dreams or will the Liverpool express train continue to charge on? It’ll be great fun finding out.
Tottenham have improved since Jose Mourinho replaced Mauricio Pochettino late last year. The Special One has vast experience of this division and knows exactly what it takes to win important matches. He will be given money to spend by the board during the January transfer window and we could even see a new face or two line up for this match. The gaffer certainly can’t afford to wait around if he wants to get his team back into the top four and Champions League places.
Can Liverpool be Beaten?
Liverpool hasn’t put a foot wrong in the league so far this season and is now odds-on favourites to win the title. No team has lost the crown from such a comfortable position and we don’t expect the reds to be the first. There’s still work to be done, of course, and the team will want to go through the campaign unbeaten. A big ask, but they ooze confidence and class in every game.
