STAR FOOTBALL PREVIEW Sun: Liverpool v Tottenham

Two sides who find themselves on a difficult run of form meet on Sunday afternoon as Tottenham Hotspur travel to Anfield to face-off with Liverpool in the Premier League, writes JOE CITRONE.

Liverpool’s title dreams are hanging by the thinnest of threads after a disappointing run of just two wins in their last six Premier League matches, which defeats to Crystal Palace and Merseyside rivals Everton.

If Jurgen Klopp is to have a dream ending to his reign as Liverpool boss, things need to improve quickly. This is a must-win game against Spurs – no ifs or buts – as the Reds need to desperately cut the gap on Arsenal which currently stands at eight points.

They may have to do it without captain Virgil Van Dijk who is a doubt for this match after missing training with a knock.

Thankfully, the touchline spat between Klopp and Mohamed Salah seems to be resolved and the Egyptian is in with a chance of returning to the starting XI here.

Much like Liverpool, Spurs’ hopes and dreams for the season have faded fast in the last couple of weeks as a run of three consecutive defeats has put a huge dent in their top-four ambitions.

Ange Postecoglou was visibly angry and frustrated with his Spurs side in their most recent outing; a 2-0 defeat to London rivals Chelsea with goals coming from Trevor Chalobah and Nicolas Jackson.

There is still reason to be optimistic as a Spurs supporter with Postecoglou instilling a clear, entertaining identity this season, but it’s becoming increasingly clear that further surgery on this squad is required if the Australian is going to get them competing for the top prizes.

As for this Sunday clash at Anfield, I can unfortunately see more pain for Spurs with Liverpool getting their season back on track.

I think Klopp’s side will claim victory at Anfield on Sunday but, with the Reds still vulnerable at the back – which will only be exacerbated if Van Dijk misses out – I can see Spurs getting on the scoresheet.
