Tottenham Hotspur travel to Anfield on Sunday to take on Liverpool who are looking to maintain their push for the Premier League title.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side also have pressure on their shoulders in the race for a top four finish with Arsenal just a single point off them and fifth-placed Manchester United three points behind.
Anfield has always historically been a tough place for Spurs to come away from with a positive result and were harshly robbed of a penalty decision in last season’s 2-2 draw.
Former Spurs midfielder Darren Anderton believes that despite Liverpool’s impressive season, he does not view Jurgen Klopp’s men as a better side than Spurs.
Anderton watched an impressive Liverpool side beat Spurs at Wembley earlier this season but feels that standard of football with the Reds have displayed in recent weeks has dropped and notably Mo Salah’s performances, also.
Hopefully, Liverpool’s indifferent form continues and Spurs can have the pleasure of causing a ripple in their quest for a long-awaited league title.
Anderton, speaking exclusively to 888sport said: “At times Liverpool’s forwards are unstoppable but unfortunately for them they’ve had a little wobble, drawing games they were expected to win and Salah is not quite at the level he was before. Mane though has been on fire these past few weeks and he’s the one who has kept them going. Firmino meanwhile is under-rated and so unselfish in his play. When I look at Liverpool I don’t see them being a better team than Spurs to be honest but they’ve done the business and got the points. They’re the one who is still up there.”
“It’s a tough one to call. I went to watch the game at Wembley earlier this season and Liverpool were by far the better team, no doubt about it they were different class and Spurs struggled to keep with them. But are they still at that level? Now, this weekend it could go either way with so much talent on display. There’s a great work ethic across both teams and it will be some battle. I’m looking forward to watching it, that’s for sure.”
