The stats don’t bode well for Spurs ahead of trip to Anfield

Tottenham will travel to Anfield on Sunday to take on Liverpool in what is the most anticipated Premier League fixture of the round.

The result will have huge ramifications on the title race as well as on the race for Champions League qualification for next season.

Tottenham come into the game in terrible form, winless in their last four games.

However, the players have had an elongated break since the defeat to Southampton.

Additionally, there is now a good feeling around the club after the fans caught their first glimpses of the spectacular new stadium which hosted its first test event last week.

While Pochettino’s men will be traveling to Anfield in a positive frame of mind, history certainly doesn’t bode well for the Lillywhites ahead of the fixture.

Under Pochettino, Tottenham have only won three of the 23 league games that they have played away to their top six rivals – at Manchester City in 2015-16, Chelsea last season and United back in August.

Additionally, the Argentine has only won one of his 13 meetings against Liverpool as a manager, and one in 10 as a Spurs boss.

As Spurs fans will be well aware, the Lillywhites also have a terrible record at Anfield having won only four times in 72 league visits to the stadium.

So, if history is anything to go by, Spurs will certainly be up against the odds on Sunday afternoon, but perhaps Pochettino’s men will go to Anfield and relish the task of ruining the Red’s title bid.
