Spurs can't compete with 'big six' rivals off the pitch - Pochettino

Manchester City's Aymeric Laporte during the FA Premier League match between Manchester City FC and West Bromwich Albion FC at the City of Manchester Stadium Betting: Expect goals at Anfield as top four race hots up

The Merseysiders have slipped six points adrift of second-placed Man Utd following their win today but a win tomorrow would not only cut the gap on them but also move Jurgen Klopp's side five points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham.

They took four points from trips to Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

A similar result in Sunday's clash at Anfield would see Spurs overtake Liverpool in the table, and they will be confident after winning the reverse fixture 4-1 in October.

Liverpool head into the game looking to get back to back victories after back to back defeats.

"Liverpool are a very good side and Mohamed Salah is on fire at the moment".

They are the jewels in each team's glistening crowns but are far from the only capable match winners, with Spurs boasting the trio of Christian Eriksen, Heung-min Son and Dele Alli and Liverpool's Salah supported by the star-studded cast of Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino.

Liverpool and Tottenham make up two of those clubs vying for European football as they prepare to lock horns on Merseyside on Sunday and the epic encounter provides the ideal backdrop for the race to finish as the league's top scorer, where the two pacesetters will also go head to head as Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah look to continue strutting their stuff.

Toby Alderweireld has returned to first-team training following a three-month absence through injury.

In defence, Ragnar Klavan remains unavailable due to a minor thigh strain but January signing Virgil van Dijk could return to the starting line-up after being benched for the win at Huddersfield.

Spurs have a fully-fit squad ahead of the game.

Serge Aurier (calf) and Harry Winks (ankle) seem to have recovered from their respective injuries and are in contention to feature on Sunday. The Dane continues to make Spurs tick in attack, putting in a man-of-the-match performance in the 2-0 win over Manchester United on Wednesday.

Lucas joined the Lilywhites from French outfit Paris Saint-Germain on the final day of the transfer window, with a fee of £23m being agreed between the two clubs. After beating Manchester City in the most recent of those matches, the hosts will be hopeful of avenging the heavy defeat suffered at Wembley earlier this term - the only time Klopp has lost to Spurs in six outings. Indeed, this season Liverpool are one of only two sides to be unbeaten at home in the league.

Hopes of silverware rest on their Champions League mission following a dismal FA Cup exit last weekend. This is a six-point game.

Harry Kane has had a hand in six goals in six Premier League appearances against Liverpool, with four goals and two assists. In the last five encounters between the two teams, Liverpool have won 2 and drawn 2.
