Liverpool vs Tottenham LIVE: Premier League team news, line-ups and more ahead of the Premier League match

Liverpool’s title dream may be over, but the Reds return to Anfield to restore some pride in Jurgen Klopp’s penultimate home game as they take on the top four chasing Tottenham in the Premier League.

Klopp’s side have won just one of their five Premier League games and a 2-2 draw against West Ham last weekend saw Liverpool abandon their title challenge for good, while Arsenal and Manchester City continued to pull away. A row between Klopp and Mohamed Salah threatened to make the German’s farewell sour, but the manager insists the dispute is over before he returns to Anfield.

Ange Postecoglou was left reeling after a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Thursday evening, Tottenham’s third defeat in a row, as Spurs look to close the gap on Aston Villa in the race for the final Champions League qualifying spot. The Tottenham manager was furious with his players at Stamford Bridge and is now under some pressure for the first time after admitting his team lacked “conviction and belief” in his plans.

“I like the challenge,” says the challenging Ange Postecoglou

Ange Postecoglou is relishing the challenge at Tottenham and remains unwavering in his belief that he can bring success to the club.

Spurs travel to Anfield on Sunday and want to avoid four defeats in a row after a difficult period under the Australian.

Postecoglou was extremely animated during Thursday’s defeat to Chelsea but reflected on the task ahead of him before the trip to Liverpool with a sense of calm and confidence.

“When everything goes smoothly, you almost think: what on earth am I doing here?’ You want the challenge. We are all tested there,” Postecoglou said.

“I love that aspect of it and I’ve had it in every job I’ve had. When I say I love it, it usually means I love it when I come out the other side. Not if I go through it.

“At the same time, what a great challenge. It was always going to come and it still will come. I’m talking about success. Imagine the criticism and pressure we will face when we are on the threshold of success at this club?

“Can you imagine the questions that will then arise about the history of this club and how it falls at the last hurdle? You have to embrace that. That will always be there. Nothing will go smoothly.

“Yes, I love this challenge because this is why I do what I do. It’s up to me. As I said after the Chelsea match: the responsibility lies with me.”

“The pressure is off” for Liverpool, Klopp admits

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp accepts the pressure is now off after withdrawing from the title race and wants his players to enjoy their last three games with him.

Klopp, who will leave at the end of the season, believes his side will not overtake rivals Arsenal or Manchester City in the Premier League.

“The pressure is off now,” he said. “That’s done. It would be very cool if we could play really good football again, because obviously we have been very tense in recent weeks.

“For a while it clearly looked like we could go all the way. Or at least stay in the race longer, which was certainly possible (but) it didn’t work out for various reasons.

“Probably third place in the league behind two teams that are doing very well and going all the way, that’s what it looks like now.

“I know mathematically there is still a chance; It’s not over yet, I know, but it sure seems like it.”

Liverpool vs Tottenham prediction: Reds return to winning ways

10:05 , Jamie Braidwood

Two out-of-form sides meet at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday when Liverpool host Tottenham (4.30pm, Sky Sport Main Event).

The Reds’ title dreams have been shattered in the past month, having won just one of their last five in the Premier League. Unless both Arsenal and Manchester City fall apart in their final few games, Jurgen Klopp will retire with only the EFL Cup to show for his efforts in his final season.

Tottenham’s hopes of reaching the Champions League have suffered a major blow with three defeats to their name. The wheels have come off at the worst time for Ange Postecoglou’s men and they could be ten points behind fourth-placed Villa by kick-off on Sunday.

Anything other than a win at Anfield would likely end their hopes of playing in Europe’s elite competition next season.

Football betting sites have Liverpool winning on Sunday and you can get a price of 5/1 for Spurs to take the three points.

Liverpool and Tottenham are both looking to bounce back from their Premier League setbacks in the Anfield encounter.

Jurgen Klopp’s side’s title challenge has been derailed by a defeat to Everton and a draw against West Ham, with a win here a must to maintain even slim hopes of seeing off their outgoing manager in style.

Spurs, meanwhile, have been in serious trouble, with a defeat to Chelsea on Thursday their third successive defeat.

A first campaign under Ange Postecoglou that started well is in danger of ending badly, with fourth place now certainly out of reach.
