Tottenham vs. Liverpool: Key Battles to Watch for in Premier League Clash

Nacer Chadli is set to start for Tottenham against Liverpool after his great performance in last Sunday's 4-0 win over QPR.

Two London derbies successfully negotiated, Premier League table-toppers Tottenham Hotspur now turn their attentions to Liverpool.

The Reds lost 3-1 to champions Manchester City last Monday night but remain a fearsome prospect for a Tottenham team they comfortably beat twice last season.

The playing staffs at both clubs have changed somewhat since then, while, of course, Spurs have a new head coach, Mauricio Pochettino in place too. But as both teams look to progress at this early stage of the season, they are still characterised by their previous exploits.

Liverpool are reinvigorated under Brendan Rodgers and at the very least looking to sustain their return to prominence in English football. Their north London opponents are desperate to prove the gap between them and the top four has not irretrievably widened after last year's humblings.

Against this backdrop, Sunday's match has the potential to be a hugely entertaining affair. Ahead of the game, we look at where the key battles could take place between these two ambitious teams.
