PREDICTION
The term ‘six-pointer’ is usually one that is saved for when two teams at the bottom of the table square off, however this phrase can be used to label Sunday’s clash between Liverpool and Tottenham. Just two points separate them going into this meeting as the race to the return to Champions League next season intensifies. As good as Mauricio Pochettino’s men have been at home, they still tend to struggle on the road, especially when it really matters in situations such as this. With that mind, you get the feeling that Liverpool will come out on top and solidify their current top four place.

MEMORABLE MEETING
A week short of exactly three years ago, the two sides met at Anfield and played out a thrilling five-goal encounter, one that Liverpool edged thanks to Mario Balotelli’s late strike. Liverpool found themselves going ahead twice in the game only to be edged back by Tottenham each time, but with the game looking like it would finish up with honours even there was however still time for one final twist in the tale.
