Fans have already started pouring into the Football Transfer Tavern ahead of this afternoon’s clash between Liverpool and Tottenham, which now takes on added significance following yesterday’s results.
Liverpool in particular know this afternoon will perhaps signal the biggest game of many Reds players careers so far, with the opportunity to go take over from Chelsea at the top of the table with a win.
The Blues defeat to Crystal Palace yesterday sent shock waves through the Premier League, and Liverpool will know that a win over Tim Sherwood’s men today will see them in with a real chance of claiming a first league title since 1990.
It has been a season that has surpassed even the most optimistic of Liverpool fans expectations, and with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge having netted 48 Premier League goals between them already this season – you would not bet against them.
Tottenham meanwhile will be looking to cause an upset in the hope of closing the gap on bitter rivals Arsenal in the race for fourth spot.
A win would close the gap on the fourth placed Gunners to five points, and keep Tim Sherwood’s men in with an outside chance of playing in Europe’s elite competition next season.
It has been a season of transition at White Hart Lane, and whilst a lot of the new signings have failed to impress, there have still been some moments of quality.
So ahead of this afternoon’s huge clash, we have come up with the combined Liverpool and Tottenham XI.
Let us know who you would have picked!
