In his coaching career, Jose Mourinho met with Liverpool more often than with any other team. Of the 28 previous meetings, there were many memorable ones, such as the famous battles of Chelsea and Liverpool in the Champions League, cup finals or the same match in the Premier League, in which Stephen Gerrard slipped and Liverpool suffered a serious blow in the fight for the championship title.
Frankly, this season the “Reds” are unlikely to lose their goal, because their separation from the closest pursuer is 13 points, while they have a match in reserve. Nevertheless, Mourinho will try to become the first manager who will be able to beat Liverpool Jurgen Klopp in the current season of the Premier League. The Portuguese will probably be pleased to deprive the “red” the opportunity to spend the season without defeat.
Tottenham’s task is complicated by staffing problems – over the past few days, midfielder Moussa Sissoko and striker Harry Kane have replenished the “spurs”. In addition, another midfielder Tonga Ndombele has some health problems, and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, although close to recovering from a broken arm, is still not ready to return to the field.
Liverpool will approach the match in a good mood – the team of Jürgen Klopp back-up defeated the “backbone” of Everton in the League Cup home game. However, in the case of the “Reds” also will not do without personnel problems – the midfield has weakened due to injuries to Nabi Keita, James Milner and Fabinho.
In the first round match, Liverpool won in their field – 2: 1.
According to bookmakers, Liverpool is the favorite of the meeting. The victory of the “Reds” is estimated at 1.74, the draw – 4.30, and the victory of the “Spurs” – 4.40.
