Tottenham v Liverpool: match preview

Tottenham’s new found defensive stability under Antonio Conte receives its first real test. They have conceded one goal – against Leeds – in four Premier League games since Conte took control, collecting 10 points in the process. It will take some doing to continue that parsimonious run against a Liverpool side that has scored at least once in their past 32 games – a club record – with Real Madrid the last to prevent Mohamad Salah and company finding the net in April. Liverpool have also won their past eight but with Covid potentially ruling out key players on both sides the outcome could be anyone’s guess. Stephen Hollis
