The top two in the Premier League will go head to head as Liverpool play hosts to Tottenham Hotspur tonight (Wednesday).
The Lilywhites have responded well to their tough run of fixtures this month, securing wins over Manchester City and Arsenal while drawing against Chelsea.
So the game with the Reds should mark the end of this difficult phase, and one can imagine how rewarding it will be for the visitors to secure all three points at Anfield.
However, the Premier League champions, despite their inconsistencies this season, are still virtually unbeatable at home.
They also have a stellar record against Spurs, having lost just one of the last 15 meetings between these two sides and winning all of the last four matches – making them the undisputed favourites.
It needs to be pointed out that historical records do bear very little significance when it comes to matches like these and if any English team can break down Liverpool’s hegemony at Anfield, it is Mourinho’s well-drilled, counter-attacking Tottenham side.
Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Williams, Fabinho, Robertson, Jones, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mané
Tottenham XI (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies, Sissoko, Højbjerg, Bergwijn, Lo Celso, Son, Kane
Kick off is at 21:00 (GMT +1).
