It’s all on the line at Anfield, as Liverpool and Tottenham meet for the first time since Madrid
Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur, Sunday 27 October, 4pm, Sky Sports Premier League/HD (CH 512/502)
In football, a lot can change in five months. At the start of June, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur squared off in Madrid in the UEFA Champions League Final, with the Reds coming out on top to win their sixth European crown. Now, these clubs are about to meet again for the first time since that night in Spain.
Spurs head to Anfield this Sunday in a huge Premier League clash that’s live and exclusive on Sky Sports, but how are the teams looking following their last encounter? (Hint: their fortunes provide quite the contrast.)
With plenty at stake in the title race and the scrap to reach the top four, this weekend’s clash should be heavy on entertainment. And don’t forget, if you’re out and about when the action is on, you can still follow every screamer, full-blooded tackle and VAR controversy wherever you are thanks to the Sky Sports app.
Here, we assess how Liverpool and Tottenham have fared over the past few months, plus scroll down to vote for who you think will win this weekend’s big match on Merseyside.
Could Liverpool be any hotter right now? Jürgen Klopp’s Reds are flying at the top of the table and look destined to end the season with more silverware. What’s most impressive about the team this season is their ability to eke out vital results when they look less than sparkling. All in all, it’s not too bad for a club that hardly opened its wallet for new players in the summer. However, May is still seven months away. Bigger leads in the Premier League have evaporated. Just saying.

Do say: The title is finally heading to Anfield.
Don’t say: Remember when Liverpool blew a big lead last season?
Since their first ever UEFA Champions League Final appearance in June, Spurs have done the Spursiest thing possible and fallen apart. They’ve suffered embarrassing defeats to Colchester and Bayern Munich, Lloris is crocked, Kane’s blowing hot and cold, and there’s talk of discord within the changing room. Plus, is manager Mauricio Pochettino close to quitting? Talk about a soap opera. Their season is by no means a write-off just yet, but they’ll need to pull their socks up sharpish if they want to finish in the top four.
