Predicted Lineups: Preview and Team News for Liverpool vs Tottenham in the 2022-23 Premier League Season

Arlo Gibbons


The Premier League is heating up as we head towards the end of the season, and one of the most important matches taking place this Sunday is between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. As things stand, Liverpool are fighting a difficult battle to break into the top four, with only six games remaining in the league. However, if they manage to beat Tottenham on Sunday, they will leapfrog the Lilywhites and possibly even make it into fifth place, depending on the outcome of the Aston Villa vs. Manchester United match.

Despite being in a good position to secure a place in the top four, the Reds have lacked consistency throughout the season. Winning two games in a row has been a luxury for them, and it has taken them a lot of hard work to create their current three-game streak. However, winning four games in a row will seemingly be even harder.

On the other hand, Tottenham has been stagnated as they have only managed to pick up five points in their last five games, including their humiliating 6-1 loss against Newcastle United. Additionally, their goalkeeper, Hugo Lloris, missed their midweek match, and may not be ready to play on Sunday. With or without him, they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven league games.

Both teams know what is at stake during this game, and it is sure to be a thrilling encounter at Anfield. Although Liverpool are in the middle of a great run, Spurs are also determined to make a comeback and inflict a defeat on their opponents. Ryan Mason, Spurs’ new interim manager, will be looking to further his luck at Anfield, while Liverpool’s new formation has left their recent opponents befuddled.

Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool‘s manager, commented that this season has faced difficulties for a lot of teams, and while it has not been cool for the Reds, it has opened doors for other teams. He expects Tottenham to be in good form despite their recent struggles. Meanwhile, Mason acknowledged Liverpool as an exceptional football team, but plans to focus on his team’s collective effort in stopping them rather than singling out individual players.

As kick-off approaches, Liverpool will be hoping to rise to the occasion and secure a victory at Anfield. Klopp will have to deal with a few injury concerns, including Jota, who may find himself on the bench preventatively. Stefan Bajcetic and Calvin Ramsay remain Liverpool’s long-term injuries, while Roberto Firmino and Naby Keïta are sidelined with muscle issues. In contrast, Spurs have several injuries, including Yves Bissouma, Rodrigo Bentancur, Ryan Sessegnon, and Emerson Royal.

In any event, this will be an exciting match that nobody should miss. Stay up to date with team news and match buildup, live updates, and post-match reactions with The Liverpool Offside team.
