Fantasy Football: Liverpool v Tottenham Preview


One of the key matches in the Game week 13 of the English Premier League is scheduled on 16th December evening at Anfield. In the table-toppers’ clash, the hosts and defending champions Liverpool will welcome Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur side.

Both teams have played 12 matches and scored 25 points, more than any other team. Tottenham are currently at the top of the EPL table, thanks to a better goal difference than Liverpool.

Liverpool Preview

Jurgen Klopp’s side is playing quite good quality of football. But they are not as dominant as last year when by this time they took a huge lead and almost guaranteed the title. This time they are coming from a 1-1 draw against 17th position Fulham, a match they were expected to win comfortably. Their last 5 matches included 2 wins and 3 Draws.

They are impacted by injury as some of the key players like Diogo Jota and Virgil van Dijk are out for at least next two months. However, Trent Alexander-Arnold is back from injury and should get his first start after recovery. A lot will depend on Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Both are a must for the fantasy team along with Andrew Robertson and Alexander-Arnold.

Tottenham Preview

Tottenham are also in a great run and remained at the top of the table for the last four weeks. They play in the classic Mourinho mould with more focus on defense and conceded only 10 goals, lowest among all the teams, in this campaign till now. Their goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and defensive options like Sergio Regulion and Eric Dier should be popular in the fantasy market.

Their biggest stars are Harry Kane with 9 goals and 10 assists and Heung Min Son with 10 goals and 4 assists. Both Kane and Son are in the top of the fantasy table for forwards and midfielders in the official Fantasy Premier League table. Also, they do not have any major injury concerns going into this huge clash.
