Tottenham facing Liverpool is the clash to keep an eye on once the teams return after the international break.

Two of the best sides in England face each other and even at this early stage of the season, the clash could provide a clue as to which team is better placed for a title challenge.

While Liverpool have won all their games in the Premier League, Tottenham were surprised by a sprightly Watford side losing the match 2-1.

Spurs had a 100% record coming into the clash against the Hornets and the international break will provide time to iron out the problems in the side.

Team news

Tottenham have a couple of injury concerns with Hugo Lloris and Moussa Sissoko missing the clash against Watford. The captain will not play with the French side during the international break but could make a return to the side in time for the clash.

Liverpool do not have any injury concerns at all as they look to continue their incredible run of victories.

Last season’s result

The corresponding fixture from last season saw Spurs hammer the daylights out of the Reds as we won the game 4-1.

scored a brace while Son Heung-min and Dele Alli finished the rout at Wembley. Tottenham would be playing at Wembley once again and it will be an interesting clash at the stadium.

Predicted Line-ups

Tottenham XI: Michel Vorm, Ben Davies, Davinson Sanchez, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Vertonghen, Kieran Trippier, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen, Harry Kane, Lucas Moura

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane

Playing at home, even if it is Wembley will give Spurs a bit of a boost and the international break can be a great leveller as teams all start from zero again.

Tottenham will count on Kane to do the business but Liverpool have a fit and firing Mane to count on also.

Liverpool are slight favourites at 21/20 while Spurs are 5/2. A draw is 13/5.

 The two behemoths will go at each other for sure and in an entertaining clash we should see a 2-2 draw at Wembley.

“I’ll donate my ribs”, “He has 18 ribs” – Some Liverpool fans relieved star player doesn’t have major injury

Published

Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Southampton was marred by an injury to Virgil van Dijk. The Dutch defender had to be replaced in the second half with Joe Gomez coming on.

Van Dijk looked exceptional at the back once again as he had a number of interceptions and clearances. The former Southampton man looked comfortable with Joel Matip but Gomez had to take over from the Dutchman.

Liverpool’s next clash is against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and we shouldn’t risk playing the defender.

The 27-year-old had a bruised rib, as per a release, from the club and Jurgen Klopp claimed the defender got hit there again.

“He already had a bruise in the ribs before the PSG game, which is very uncomfortable and today he got another hit there.

“It should be absolutely OK, hopefully. I didn’t hear anything different.”

This would come as great news for the Liverpool fans and their relief was plastered all over Twitter.

Liverpool granted permission to host music concerts at Anfield

Liverpool’s plans to host major music concerts for close to 50,000 people have been accepted at Liverpool Town Hall, according to Liverpool Echo.

The Reds were dealt a blow when their plans to host other events at Anfield were shot down by the Planning Committee. Although Liverpool have received approval, certain changes need to be made, as per the report.

The report adds that a number of residents raised issues regarding noise, lack of parking and anti-social behaviour. In response, Liverpool decided to reduce music events from 10 to 6 and accepted a two-year temporary license.

Chief Operating Officer Andy Hughes further shared plans to create a community fund, which would be raised via parking fares, to help the residents around Anfield.

Another measure includes the appointment of a “dedicated local resident liaison officer”, who will deal with any issues residents might face during the events.

The report adds that there were objections to the proposals, with some wanting the plans to be put on hold until we made life easier for the neighbours.

However, the Reds were granted permission on a temporary basis and will be able to host combat sports at the stadium from next summer.

This should come as great news for the club as we must maximize our revenue from Anfield. The stadium isn’t used much after the season is done but if we host some big fights and music events, it will only help the club’s finances.
