Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur

29th March 2019, 17:21 by Bobbie Jackson

Liverpool will look to extend their impressive home league record when Tottenham come to town on Sunday.

The Reds last tasted defeat in the Premier League at Anfield in April 2017 when Crystal Palace claimed a 2-1 victory.

Liverpool fans can also take comfort in their record against sides placed in the top six this term, having lost just one of eight encounters.

Victory will ensure they are top of the pile come the end of the weekend and they can’t afford any further slip-ups, with rivals Manchester City breathing down their neck.

Full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who withdrew from duty with England, with a back problem will be assessed. Xherdan Shaqiri is also a doubt after missing both of Switzerland’s games with a groin problem.

Long-term absentees Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are nearing returns although Sunday’s game comes too soon.

Tottenham have lost their way in 2019 and are without a win in their last four league outings, losing three and drawing once.

Their record against Liverpool doesn’t make for pleasant reading either, losing eight of the last 13 meetings across all competitions, while they have only won once in the last 24 visits to Anfield.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be without midfielder Eric Dier after he sustained a muscle injury in England’s win over the Czech Republic.

Harry Winks is also set for another week on the sidelines although Kieran Trippier could come back into the fold. Serge Aurier suffered a hamstring injury in Ivory Coast’s victory over Rwanda last weekend and will miss out.

Harry Kane, who boasts 11 goals in his last 12 appearances for Spurs, will be licking his lips at the prospect of heading to Merseyside, having scored in three of his four appearances at Anfield.
