Finally beating Liverpool would be a massive step forward for Tottenham

The Merseyside outfit were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw with title favourites Manchester United at Anfield last weekend.

The Lilywhites are the best performing team over the past two-and-a-half seasons, they boast their most talented squad in decades and they are finally performing to par in the Champions League.

"It's always like that against (Manchester) City and against Tottenham it is like this".

It's a strange fixture, as Spurs won seven out of 10 meetings before that.

Already one thing is clear though, spoiler alert, Arsenal WILL beat Everton, according to stats from bwin. "Let's play and let's see what happens". Manager Jürgen Klopp has stood by his man, however, and it's easy to see why.

Yes, it is a side that open up and look to score, but Kane can't score at Wembley, right? "We're taking control of games and I think the whole of Europe are starting to think English teams are powerful again".

Tottenham are themselves learning to love Wembley after a difficult start to their season-long tenancy there. At £52 million, Lacazette was bought in to help his side improve on a dreadful showing in the league last season.

"We are aware about that, like when you play Real Madrid or this type of team", he told the Spurs website. He has a very good first touch and is neat and tidy on the ball.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have struggled in league play to begin the season. It appeared that they had left any sense of strategy in the dressing room and taken a haphazard, attacking approach to the game, for which they were duly punished.

Klopp, whose reign began with a 0-0 draw against Tottenham, could do with a repeat of the ruthlessness Liverpool showed in Slovenia, rather the same scoreline they had last Saturday at Anfield.

With Harry Kane having gone two games without a goal for the first time since August, Liverpool will be wary of a backlash from a player who Klopp describes as "one of the best strikers in the world".

Pochettino's is not, and that tactical flexibility has the potential to prove a trump card.

The hosts will have Dele Alli back after European suspension, while Danny Rose comes into contention after coming off the bench at the Bernabeu.

Winger Sadio Mane, midfielder Adam Lallana and full-back Nathaniel Clyne remain sidelined.
