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 Mauricio Pochettino time to iron out the problems in the side.
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.
Harry Kane 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.
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
Tottenham vs Liverpool Predictions and Odds: 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.
“It is not easy but I’m trying” – Liverpool star opens up about huge price tag and how he wants to improve
The former AS Roma star has had a brilliant start to his Premier League campaign and has conceded just five goals from 12 games.
Speaking ahead of Brazil’s friendly against Uruguay, the Independent quoted Alisson saying:
“I came here for a high price and some people expect to me to be perfect – it is not easy but I’m trying.”
Alisson added he is working to be perfect in between the sticks and wants to get better with each game.
“I am really, really happy with my move to the Premier League. I’m working really hard to help Liverpool to achieve their goals and also for the Brazil national team.”
Alisson praised our defence for giving him an easy time at the back and claimed that he has to concentrate a lot in games.
“One thing that is important here is the concentration and focus. They are asking me to be really mentally strong.
“My team have a really great defence so it is not often the ball comes near my net.”
The Brazilian has been an excellent signing for the Reds this season, but there have been a few instances where he could have done better.
The goal against Leicester City and one against Arsenal could have been avoided, and hopefully, he will get better in the coming months.

Liverpool summer signing Fabinho is still getting into the groove of things at Anfield. The former Monaco midfielder was slowly integrated into the team by Jurgen Klopp, and the Brazilian has a couple of quality outings under his belt.
Fabinho is a proper defensive midfielder but the Brazilian knows how to pick a pass too. Despite not starting regularly for the Reds, the 25-year-old is a constant in the national side and recently shared a picture of him training with the team during the international break.
The 25-year-old was seen alongside Everton midfielder Richarlison and a few others as they went through the paces.

Fabinho’s introduction has seen Klopp devise a 4-2-3-1 formation where the 25-year-old plays as one of our two midfielders.
The Brazilian has looked comfortable in that position but has to work on his reactions in the Premier League.
The former Monaco man was excellent in our 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade a few weeks ago but wasn’t great in the 1-1 draw against Arsenal.
He was much better in the 2-0 win over Fulham but we are yet to see the best of the midfielder. With just a third of the campaign done, Fabinho has time on his side to get even better this season.
It will be interesting to see how we deal with the packed festive schedule, but there is no doubt Fabinho will play a crucial role for Liverpool in the rest of the season.
Liverpool star charged by FA over possible betting misconduct
The alleged issue came up in January and the striker has claimed he has never gambled on the sport.
The report claims that the charges are related to the Englishman’s move from Liverpool to West Bromwich Albion in January. Footballers are prohibited from gambling on games or any other matters related to the sport.
The Guardian adds that this issue is to revolve around the disclosure of information as the charge relates to “information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of his or her position within the game and which is not publicly available at that time”.
Sturridge has claimed his innocence and a statement released by the football club read (h/t Guardian):
“Daniel has given his full and unequivocal cooperation throughout this process and has assured the club he will continue to do so. Daniel has also stated categorically that he has never gambled on football.
“As with any issue of this nature, we will allow the process to be concluded in its entirety before making any further comment.”
The English striker faces charges under rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b), as per the report, and has until 20 November to enter a plea.
The former Chelsea striker had a horrible time at the Hawthorns on loan and saw West Brom getting relegated.
The 29-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season but has scored some vital goals for Liverpool in the current campaign.
Sturridge bagged a goal against Paris Saint-Germain in our Champions League opener and levelled the scores when Chelsea played the Reds in the Premier League with a superb strike.
