Ryan Sessegnon insists he and his teammates fully believe they can beat Liverpool on Saturday.

The game at Anfield has a lot riding on it, with both Tottenham and Liverpool desperately needing three points.

While Jurgen Klopp’s men are looking to keep pace with Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title, the Lilywhites have their eyes on Champions League qualification.

Spurs sit two points below Arsenal in fourth place and they will have an opportunity to temporarily go above their North London rivals, who play Leeds on Sunday, with a win against the Reds.

However, that will certainly not be an easy task, with Tottenham having not won at Anfield since 2011.

Sessegnon stated Spurs have already shown against Manchester City that they can win at difficult away grounds, and insisted there was no reason why they cannot get a similar result on Saturday.

When asked how they will approach the game, the 21-year-old told Football.London: “Just the way we approach every game.

“It’s going to be a very difficult game away at Anfield, but you’ve seen we can take points from the top teams as we’ve done it against Man City this season, we took two wins there. There’s no reason why we can’t go there and win the game.”

Spurs and Liverpool played out an entertaining 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Sessegnon putting in a solid display at left wing-back against Mohamed Salah.

When asked if he and his teammates can take confidence from that performance, the former Fulham man said: “100 per cent. We’ll look at the game and see the positives and take those positives into the next game at Anfield

“We know it’s a different stage of the season and we have to manage it. But again when we have the chances to score, we should take those chances.

“I think every game I play in this team gives me confidence to go and do what I want to do on the pitch, especially against the big teams as I played well in the last game when they came here. It’ll be no different going into that game.”

Spurs Web Opinion

It certainly will not be a walk in the park for Liverpool on Saturday as we have the firepower to hurt them if they commit a lot of bodies forward, which they tend to do.

However, Liverpool are capable of blowing teams away over a good 10 to 15-minute spell. So, we go into the game as clear underdogs. Conte will likely take a point if you offered it to him now.
