Premier League 2022-23: Liverpool vs Tottenham: Predicted lineup, injury news, head-to-head, telecast
Spurs look to remain in the race for a top four finish with a crucial visit to Anfield
Tottenham fans may not be feeling too optimistic ahead of their upcoming game, especially given their poor record of conceding goals while playing away this season. In fact, they’ve already conceded 31 goals on the road in the Premier League in 2022-23, their highest number since 2008-09.
That being said, this Liverpool side is not the toughest they’ve faced in recent years, and even if they win all of their remaining six games this season, they will still finish with 21 points fewer than last season’s total of 92. While Liverpool is difficult to beat at Anfield, having lost only one of their 15 league games at home this season, it’s worth noting that 16 of their 39 home goals this season were scored in just two games against Bournemouth and Manchester United.
Despite Liverpool having a game in hand, Tottenham is currently higher in the table than them, as they were in the reverse fixture back in November.

Tottenham form in all competitions: D-L-L-W-D
Players to watch
Liverpool: Mohammed Salah
The Egyptian talisman has found the back of the net on 16 occasions for the Reds this season and will be looking to end the season on a high with the last few remaining fixtures. Securing a place in the top 4 is going to be a tough job for Jurgen Klopp’s men, and this seems like the right time for Mo Salah to put his foot to the gas.
Tottenham: Son Heung-min
The Spurs star looked in great touch in the last outing against Manchester United and will be brimming with confidence following his equalizer against Manchester United that helped the team avoid another loss. If the South Korean superstar managed to retain his form in the game against the Reds, Spurs could fancy their chances.
- Liverpool have lost only one of their last 20 Premier League games versus Spurs and are unbeaten in 10 successive head-to-head meetings. rephrase this
- In their Premier League history, Spurs have only managed to win 14 games against Liverpool while losing more than twice that amount, with a total of 30 losses.
- Liverpool’s recent performance at home in the Premier League has been a bit shaky, with the team conceding a total of four goals in their last two games. This is the same number of goals they had conceded in their previous nine home matches.
Injury and team news
Liverpool’s long-term absentees Stefan Bajcetic and Calvin Ramsay remain out, while Ibrahima Konate missed the previous game against West Ham due to workload concerns but is expected to return. Roberto Firmino is still recovering from a muscular problem, while Naby Keita has a chance of returning. Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones have been playing well, but Jota took a knock to the back, and Klopp may consider bringing in Darwin Nunez.
Tottenham will be without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who is still out due to a hip injury, for their game against Liverpool. The team will also be missing four other players – Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon, and Emerson Royal. Lucas Moura is available after serving a three-game ban, but Richarlison may be replaced by Dejan Kulusevski for any attacking changes. Despite Eric Dier’s poor performance in the last game, he is expected to retain his position in the three-man defence.

Prediction for Liverpool vs Tottenham
Although Klopp was happy with his team’s defensive performance against West Ham, Liverpool still allowed many chances on Wednesday and are unlikely to keep a clean sheet against a Spurs team with a strong attacking record.
With both teams competing for a top-four spot, there may be several goals scored in a thrilling encounter at Anfield. Despite Spurs’ impressive comeback against Manchester United, it seems unlikely they will end their winless run at Anfield, where they have not won in over a decade. Spurs’ poor away form looks set to continue.
Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur
