Tottenham Hotspur face Liverpool on Sunday in the first time the two teams have played each other since the Champions League final in June.
After the drama and excitement of making it to the last two of European football’s most prestigious club competition, the actual showpiece proved to be an anti-climax in one of the dullest finals in history.
Michael Owen has had his say on who he thinks will come out on top at Anfield this weekend and believes that it will be his former side who will pile further misery on Spurs.
Liverpool are unbeaten in the top flight this season and are already thirteen points ahead of Mauricio Pochettino’s side in the table.
The former England international has suggested that Pochettino remains uncertain over what his best starting eleven is after making seven changes at the weekend.
Spurs did restore some confidence following the midweek win against Red Star, but in Owen’s opinion they will come away from Merseyside pointless.
He told BetVictor: “A repeat of the Champions League Final and I believe it will be a similar result with Liverpool holding most of the aces especially as they are likely to have Mo Salah back in the starting XI having missed Sunday’s draw at Old Trafford.
“Spurs have won just three of their last dozen league games and they made seven changes to their starting XI against Watford last weekend which suggests Mauricio Pochettino is not sure what his best team is at present.
“Spurs have conceded early goals against both Brighton and Watford in recent games and the Reds were 1-0 up in the Champions League Final inside five minutes in Madrid at the beginning of June. I expect it to be another difficult afternoon for Spurs.”
