Tottenham vs Liverpool Prediction & Match Preview

Tottenham vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Thursday, 28 January 2021
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).


All eyes will be on Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when Spurs and Liverpool go head to head in the Premier League derby. 


Tottenham aim to build on a 3-1 win over Sheffield United, and a triumph over Liverpool will see them climb to the Champions League berth. 

Lo Celso remains in the recovery room, while Dele Alli should be fit to face the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp’s troops have been totally out of form in 2021, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures, while losing to Man Utd in the FA Cup last 32. 

The Reds are desperate to return to winning ways in the Premier League, and given Spurs’ attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. 

Van Dijk, Gomez, Jota, and Keita are all sidelined with injuries, while Henderson should recover in time to face Tottenham.

Team News:

Tottenham are already having to make do without the injured Giovani Lo Celso, and Mourinho reported a few more concerns before Monday's showdown with Wycombe.

Serge Aurier fought off a bout of illness in time to make the bench, but Matt Doherty remains doubtful with an unspecified problem, while Alli was not involved whatsoever due to a reported tendon injury.

The FA Cup win would surely have provided Alli with the chance to earn some valuable minutes, as even if he was fully fit, there is very little chance of Ndombele being displaced in Mourinho's midfield.

A quartet of changes in defence from the FA Cup could see Aurier, Hugo Lloris, Eric Dier and Joe Rodon all return to the fold, but Sergio Reguilon has been ruled out with a muscular injury, while Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Ndombele will occupy spots in the engine room.

Mourinho has a big call to make on the right-hand side, with Bale starting to look sharper after being told he must fight for his minutes, but Steven Bergwijn is expected to get the nod regardless.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are sweating over the fitness of captain Jordan Henderson, who played no part against Man United or Burnley and remains a doubt for this one, although he has trained since.

Should Henderson not make the cut, Thiago and Georginio Wijnaldum look set to be joined by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in the middle of the park, although the ever-reliable James Milner is another option for Klopp.

Fabinho and Joel Matip should pair up in defence once again with Gomez and Van Dijk injured, while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota will also be sidelined for a little while longer.

Salah and Firmino were surprisingly benched against Burnley, while Mane appeared as a substitute against Man United, but the trio will certainly feature from the off as the visitors hope to avoid a fifth league game without a goal.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Aurier, Dier, Rodon, Davies; Sissoko, Hojbjerg; Bergwijn, Ndombele, Son; Kane

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Thiago, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mane
