Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has predicted that Liverpool will easily see off a challenge from Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend.
Tottenham have struggled to find consistency this season, while Liverpool only dropped their first points in their ninth league game, against Manchester United last week. And Nicholas is of the opinion that the Merseysiders will have no problem in walking over the Lillywhites when they meet this Sunday.
“This is a cracking game. Tottenham bounced back in the Champions League, getting a lot of anger out of their system. The way he keeps talking it is as if Mauricio Pochettino has a back-up plan in the form of Manchester United or Real Madrid, who supposedly want him,” Nicholas wrote in his Sky Sports column.
*He knows he gets on with the owner. The players want to take him for dinner too, it could be a drive-through! Toby Alderweireld was rested, so where does that leave him? They now go on to Liverpool. Does he not play because he is running his current contract down?”
“Tottenham managed to salvage a point against Watford and could have some confidence going into Anfield after their win through the week. Although, I do not see past a Liverpool win and they will continue to roll along with Mohamed Salah back in the side, who scored in the week against Genk.”
