Spurs have improved somewhat under Jose Mourinho. But even with the coveted manager at the helm, it is hard to see the Lilywhites putting an end to Liverpool’s unbeaten run this weekend.
The Merseyside powerhouse have notched a staggering 58 points already this season from 20 Premier League outings, winning 19 and drawing just once.
As for Spurs, they began the weekend sat 6th in the PL, six points adrift of a Champions League spot.
The North London outfit have also kept just two clean sheets in the league this term.
And with Liverpool boasting the second-best attack in the English top-flight, Spurs’ defensive woes will likely continue for another week.

Klopp on Keita & Milner
Ahead of the Tottenham clash, Jurgen Klopp held his pre-match press conference on Friday.
During the presser, the German gave a rather negative update on James Milner and Naby Keita.
Klopp ruled both of the aforementioned midfielders out of the Tottenham tie and confirmed they are both suffering from muscle injuries:
“James and Naby are not available. Both are muscle injuries, different and for different people, so we see how quick they will be.
“We really don’t have to put a timeframe on it because we don’t know it exactly. We will see, we are open and whenever they want to join us again, they can – or when the medical department gives the green light.
“For sure, not for this weekend, not for next week, but then we will see.” As quoted by Liverpool’s official website.
On a more positive note, Klopp would state on Friday that Liverpool expect Dejan Lovren and Fabinho to be back in full training next week:
“Shaq trained completely normal since he’s in. Dejan and Fabinho we expect to be back next week in full training.
“That’s obviously good. If that’s then early enough for the United game, I don’t know but we will see. They work really hard in the moment and they go really through the paces, so that’s good. As quoted by Liverpool’s official website.
