Tottenham hotspur – Liverpool -Played on 11/06/ 2022
Liverpool travel to north London this afternoon to face fourth place Tottenham Hotspurs. Here are the confirmed line ups, team news and where to watch
Two teams on different trajectories will meet today at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham come in on the back of a win against Bournemouth and Liverpool on the back of embarrassing losses
to both Nottingham Forest and Leeds United.
Watch the two goals of Liverpool vs Tottenham!
Details of the lineups for Liverpool’s match with Leeds United at Anfield have now been confirmed.
Mohamed Salah struck twice in the first half as Liverpool secured their first away win in the Premier League this season with victory at Tottenham.
Liverpool had lost their two previous league games to struggling Nottingham Forest and Leeds United,
so manager Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with this win at Spurs,
who are shaping up as rivals for a place in the top four.
Salah was the inspiration,
sweeping home a sharp left-foot finish from Darwin Nunez’s pass after 11 minutes,
then cashing in on Eric Dier’s misplaced headed back-pass to double Liverpool’s advantage with great composure five minutes before the break.
Spurs, without the injured Son Heung-min,
were never out of the game as Ivan Perisic hit the woodwork either side of half-time before Harry Kane pulled one back with 20 minutes remaining.
But they failed to complete one of the comebacks that have become their trademark this season.
Liverpool dig deep for victory
Liverpool got their stuttering season back in some sort of shape with the Champions League win against Napoli in midweek to reach the last 16 once again,
although in reality that match was little more than a dead rubber.
This victory carries greater significance because of the opposition and also the need to get their Premier League show back on the road after two damaging losses.
Southgate has no such luxury. From Eric Dier’s hazardous header,
to the failed foot-races that explain why he has never been fully convinced by Trent Alexander-Arnold,
Spurs’ 2-1 loss to Liverpool on Sunday won’t have filled England fans with confidence. They can find consolation, as ever, in Harry Kane;
his neat finish was a reminder of his quality when things are starting to feel desperate.
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR STADIUM — If Antonio Conte has reasons to be fearful about what the coming weeks have in store,
Gareth Southgate has just as many. At least the Tottenham manager will soon be able to forget about this result.
