Tottenham vs Liverpool: Battle for 4th Place

This weekend Tottenham Hotpsur entertain Liverpool at White Hart Lane. Both sides will be in the hunt for the coveted fourth place finish in the Premier League and the promise of Champions League football next season.

Whatever the result of this game, it will definitely set the tone between the two for the rest of the season.

Liverpool come into this fixture with a mixed start to the league after taking only seven points from a possible 12. Whilst wins against a depleted Arsenal and somewhat non-existent Bolton Wanderers have given them an early and well-needed 6 points, an opening-day draw at home to Sunderland as well as an away loss to an extremely solid and direct Stoke City has showed some weaknesses within the side, weaknesses which maybe have been made worse due to the departure of Portuguese deep-lying play-maker Raul Meireles.

Tottenham started their league season a week later than the Scouse outfit after their opener against Everton was cancelled due to the mid-August London riots.

Whatever effect this false start had on them they lost in both of their following matches away to Man Utd and then at home to Man City, being beaten 3-0 and 5-1 respectively. However after the closure of the transfer window and securing Scott Parker, Emmanuel Adebayor and of course keeping talismanic play-maker Luka Modric, Spurs managed to group together and comfortably beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at Molinuex with the Togolese hit-man Adebayor scoring a debut goal in the process.

Please enjoy this slideshow as I go through the two opposing sides and offer my prediction as to how the match will pan out.
