Liverpool resume their quest to land the Premier League title on Sunday, when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield.

The Reds head into the gameweek two points ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table, but Pep Guardiola's side can regain top spot with victory over Fulham on Saturday.

Spurs will be hoping to shake off the run of poor results they suffered before the international break.

The north Londoners have gone four games without a Premier League win and lost to Southampton last time out.

Preview

Liverpool's title credentials should be given a stiff examination by Spurs, although the Reds can take confidence from Tottenham's recent winless run.

The hosts will have star man Mohamed Salah fresh for the game, as he was not called up for international duty by Egypt.

Manager Jurgen Klopp says the break has done his star man good:

Spurs must also watch out for the in-form Sadio Mane, who has been Liverpool's most dangerous player in recent weeks:

Liverpool have also been boosted by Trent Alexander-Arnold and Xherdan Shaqiri's returns from injury. Klopp said at a pre-match press conference that the duo "should be OK" for the match.

Tottenham come into the game without having played since March 9, and Klopp has described the visitors as a "world-class team":

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will have decisions to make in midfield with a couple of players ruled out through injury:

The Spurs boss is likely to go with either Moussa Sissoko and Victor Wanyama in central midfield alongside Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.

Wanyama may relish taking on Liverpool at Anfield again:

Pochettino will be looking for a big improvement from his side as they bid to turn around a poor run.

Their shaky form has seen them come under pressure for a place in the top four from Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea.

Liverpool can ill afford to drop points, either, if they are to claim their first league title since 1990.

Anfield has been a fortress this season, with the Reds yet to taste defeat at home. That should give them the edge over Tottenham on Sunday.
