Spurs can't compete with 'big six' rivals off the pitch - Pochettino

Spurs can't compete with 'big six' rivals off the pitch - Pochettino

That relative lack of financial muscle, in particular compared to the two Manchester clubs, explains why Klopp and Pochettino have been widely lauded for the jobs they have done despite so far failing to win any silverware in England. Mauricio Pochettino's side travel to Liverpool with the league's fifth best away record, the standing of which improves with every game.

They took four points from trips to Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

Liverpool have a score to settle with Tottenham following the 4-1 thrashing they endured at Wembley back in October.

Now only two points behind Liverpool and Chelsea, and five adrift of United, Tottenham can jump above their opponents on Sunday with a victory. If not, and Eriksen creates himself a foothold from which to dictate the game, Spurs may well leapfrog them into third.

Liverpool: Karius; Gomez, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

Klopp told The Liverpool Echo ahead of the Premier League game against Tottenham on Sunday: "Dele Alli, not the same season as last season, but still the highest quality".

Midfielder Adam Lallana is not expected to be involved for Liverpool with a muscle injury despite returning to full team training on Friday.

Jamie Carragher has said Van Dijk needs to lose weight and it will be interesting to see if Klopp brings him back in this weekend.

Grammy Awards kick off with Lorde nominated for Album of the Year
The singers paid homage to the "Me Too" and "Time's Up" movement, as they sang in unison before a chorus of women all dressed in white.

Tottenham are ready to welcome Serge Aurier back in to the squad after he overcame a calf injury while Harry Winks is also in contention after recovering from an ankle problem.

While neither manager is likely to care which of their players ends up the match-winner on Sunday, the build-up is likely to focus on two individuals who have been in sparkling goal-scoring form all season.

Lucas Moura, Tottenham's Deadline Day signing from Paris Saint-Germain, watched on from the stands as Spurs beat ManchesterUnited. And the Argentine reminded the media, not for the first time, that it is unfair to compare Spurs to any of their rivals, saying they are not in a position to compete financially with the rest of the "big six".

Nathan Dyer of Swansea City tackles Andy Robertson of Liverpool during the Premier League match between Swansea City and Liverpool at Liberty Stadium.

Jurgen Klopp is unbeaten in his last 12 home Premier League meetings against the "big six" (W6 D6) since a 1-0 defeat to Man Utd in January 2016.

Harry Kane has had a hand in six goals in six Premier League appearances against Liverpool (four goals, two assists), including three in the reverse fixture this season (two goals, one assist).

Tottenham have earned seven points from their last three away games, having collected just one point from the previous available 15.

The England worldwide also has 18 goals in his last 13 top-flight away games. 19 leagues goals is a start, while a further six assists proves the Egypt global has already justified his £34.3m summer fee from Roma a number of times over.
