Klopp's Liverpool and Pochettino's Tottenham united by Champions League ambition

Klopp's Liverpool and Pochettino's Tottenham united by Champions League ambition

They are also the only side to have defeated Manchester City this season. We play well, OK? And Sunday could be van Dijk's moment. Since Pochettino joined Tottenham in 2014, their record away against the rest of the Big Six is played 18, won 1, drawn 6, lost 11.

The prospect of missing out on Champions League football would be even more untimely with Spurs set to move into a new 61,500 capacity stadium next season and only further fuel rumours that Pochettino and Harry Kane and Dele Alli, all reportedly courted by Real Madrid, could be tempted away.

Having enjoyed a comprehensive victory over Manchester United on Wednesday, Mauricio Pochettino's men are back in the hunt for a top four Premier League finish. Yes, Tottenham are riding high on their 2-0 win over Manchester United. When he is not able to score from open play, he demands spot kicks and converts them. "But if you combine home and away [form], I think the last two seasons-and-a-half, I think we are second [against the top six]". "Why we don't win the Premier League".

Liverpool, you imagine, will be desperate to avenge that 4-1 defeat earlier in the season and have a fine home record against Tottenham: the last 23 meetings at Anfield have yielded 15 wins and just one defeat. "There are many reasons why we can not win most of the games that we play away from home".

"He needs to adapt, know the players, the Premier League, the philosophy of the new team".

With just 13 top-flight matches remaining after this weekend, a five-point advantage - were Liverpool to triumph over the Lilywhites - could prove potentially key, particularly with Spurs' schedule congested by being involved in three competitions.

Last season's trip to Anfield was one of their most disappointing games of the season.

Mohamed Salah is surely already a shoo-in for Liverpool's Player of the Season award but arguably their most-improved performer has been Emre Can, who over the past six weeks especially, has been in excellent form. Without possession. In counter-attack or not in counter-attack. Five at the back. Tottenham pride themselves on keeping it watertight at the back, particularly on the road against top opponents. Now you have to say: "Tottenham have Plan A, B, C and D, no?" Only a little bit more than we had since I came in but more. Perhaps the same small-town, tight-knit, David against Goliath atmosphere that Pochettino has helped to generate at Tottenham is as much of a hindrance as a help in these matches.

Pochettino said: "The most important thing now is to keep going and to be consistent, but it will not be easy to keep up this type of performance because we will be playing every three or four days and of course, we will need the whole squad to play".

"But it is not only about us scoring goals, you have to play and stop them when they have the ball".
