Preview: Liverpool vs Tottenham – prediction, team news, line-ups

Liverpool face Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Sunday, and the result would determine the European fate of both clubs next season.

The Reds have turned a corner ahead of the business end of the campaign and will fancy their chances against the struggling Spurs.

Liverpool are without defeat in their last five Premier League games for the first time this season.

By contract, Tottenham have lost two of their last five games and won once.

They have parted ways with Antonio Conte and Cristian Stellini this term, and interim manager Ryan Mason will be keen to impress against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Match Preview

Mason kicked off his second stint as Spurs’ temporary boss with a 2-2 draw against Manchester United on Thursday night.

The north London club came from two goals down to secure a draw, which will have boosted their morale ahead of the Liverpool game.

Having won their last three matches, the Merseyside club have improved their chances of finishing in the top four.

They are seven points off fourth in the Premier League table, and winning their remaining six games could see them secure Champions League football if Manchester United keep stumbling in the league.

Liverpool will be aiming for another victory, but it will not come easy against a Spurs side looking to finish the season on a high.

The Reds won 2-1 in their last game against West Ham United, having previously secured a narrow 3-2 victory over Nottingham Forest.

They must beat Tottenham to keep their top-four hopes alive.
