Liverpool vs. Tottenham: Date, Time, Live Stream, TV Info and Preview
Alastair Grant
Tottenham were given a footballing lesson at White Hart Lane earlier in the season.

Liverpool welcome Tottenham Hotspur to fortress Anfield for the Sunday afternoon Premier League fixture aiming to cement their place in the top echelon of the table.

Brendan Rodgers' side are displaying all of the confidence of a side enjoying their football and ready for a final push for glory.

The visitors seemed to have stagnated a little under Tim Sherwood after a confident start to his managerial reign.

Sherwood's predecessor, Andre Villas-Boas, was sacked after a 5-0 reverse to Liverpool at White Hart Lane, per Neil Ashton of the Daily Mail.

With Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge still in wonderful goalscoring form, Sherwood will need a backs-against-the-wall performance to avoid another hammering.

Paulinho Confirms Status

Paulinho announced on Twitter that he would not be able to play in today's clash:

101GreatGoals.com's Staff provided English translation, “Good morning guys! Moving on to say that today I will not be playing, I have conjunctivitis – a big hug to everyone! Have a great game guys ….  Go with God.”

Brendan Rodgers has made Anfield a fortress for Liverpool this season.

Liverpool are absolutely flying at the moment, winning their last seven games in a row, per Ian Herbert of the Belfast Telegraph.

Chief destroyers Suarez and Sturridge are still taking all before them and with over 20 goals each, and they are the first Liverpool pairing in over 50 years to achieve the feat. 

Per Joel Nathan Goldman of The Independent, they are also only the third pairing in Premier League history to do so along with Peter Beardsley and Andy Cole for Newcastle in 1993/94 and Didier Drogba/Frank Lampard in 2009/10 for Chelsea.

However, it's not just the Reds front two who are likely to cause Tim Sherwood headaches.

Rodgers' side is playing an expansive, continental style not seen at Anfield in many a year, and it suits the players he has in situ perfectly.

Steven Gerrard has been amongst the goals recently.

Steven Gerrard's regista role is more prominent again, with the Liverpool legend's long- and short-range passing out of the top drawer. Often providing the bullets for the front men to fire, Gerrard has also got in amongst the goals himself recently.

Jordan Henderson too has worked himself into the ground during this season, and alongside Gerrard provides the core from which the Reds can build. 

With pace out wide via Raheem Sterling, Justin Rose could well be kept on his toes all afternoon.

 

Spurs Due a Victory

Spurs' best hope of success is likely to come down the right flank with Aaron Lennon.

Spurs have some pace up front of their own in Aaron Lennon, and his trickery could well give Jon Flanagana right-back playing on the left sidesome problems.

The youngster has done remarkably well in the position since Rodgers has asked him to fill in, but he has never had to face someone as quick and incisive as Lennon.

Tim Sherwood needs to mastermind a win with Louis van Gaal waiting in the wings.

Expect much of Tottenham's raiding to therefore come down that side.

If Lennon or Christian Eriksen on the opposite flank are able to hit the byline, then a decent cross could well see Emmanuel Adebayor reprise his goalscoring streak from the start of February when he scored five in four games, per WhoScored.

Tottenham are by no means lambs to the slaughter, and although their record at Anfield is poor, per Joel Nathan Goldman of The Independent, they have not lost three away games in a row since 2008/09.

Sherwood will certainly be looking for a reaction after the 4-0 drubbing away at Chelsea, and Spurs will need to cut out those silly mistakes to avoid a trip back to London with nothing to show for their efforts.
