Liverpool have lost just one of their last 13 Premier League meetings with Tottenham (W8 D4), going down 1-4 at Wembley in October 2017.

Tottenham are winless in their last eight away league games against Liverpool (D3 L5), last winning at Anfield in May 2011 (2-0), thanks to goals from Rafael van der Vaart and Luka Modric.

Liverpool won both league meetings with Spurs last season, and also beat them 2-0 in the Champions League final. They last won four in a row against them between 2013-2015 (a run of five).

This will be Tottenham’s 25th Premier League game away from home against a side starting the day top of the table – they won their first such match (2-0 at Blackburn in November 1992), but are winless in their subsequent 23 games (D3 L20).

Liverpool have lost just one of their last 48 games in the Premier League (W39 D8 L1), losing 1-2 vs Man City in January 2019. At Anfield, the Reds are unbeaten in 44 Premier League contests (W34 D10), last losing against Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace in April 2017 (1-2).

Liverpool have won each of their last 11 Premier League games at Anfield – they last embarked upon a longer winning run at home in the top-flight during a 13-game streak between April and November 1985.

Tottenham are without a win in their last 10 Premier League away games (D2 L8), including a 1-2 defeat to Liverpool in March. The Lilywhites last endured a longer such run between May 2000-January 2001 under George Graham (14 games).
