However while the Reds are the form team in the league, they have played two more games than Manchester City and lack the experience of both their rivals.

Liverpool do however boast the best strike force in the league in Daniel Sturridge and Luis Suarez, with the pair becoming only the third striker partnership in the EPL history to break the 20 goal mark each in a season.

The pair will be out to add to tally against a Spurs side that saw first-hand how potent the Reds are as an attacking unit in the 5-0 loss in December.

Tim Sherwood landed the Spurs job after the thrashing led to the sacking of Andre Villas-Boas and the former Blackburn midfielder stoked the fires ahead of his first trip to Anfield as manager by questioning whether Liverpool have what it takes to win the title.

“They’re very, very close – one point off the lead and absolutely flying,” he said. “They’ve got a strike partnership in Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge that’s the best the Premier League has seen for a very long time, and they’ve given themselves a real chance.

“Now they have to believe they’ve got something that might fall through their grasp and slip away and – believe me – that’s a real bad feeling to have because perhaps you don’t play with freedom you’d played with earlier in the season. I know what it’s like myself.

“It all depends on how they can hold their nerve. City and Chelsea have to be favourites because of the players they have who’ve crossed that line and done it previously.

“But Liverpool have gone from seventh last year and must be believing they can actually win this Premier League title.”

Sherwood will hope his side can make life even more difficult for the Reds on Sunday as he looks to avoid a third successive away league defeat following earlier losses to Norwich and Chelsea.

But he will have to do so without Kyle Walker (pelvis) and Erik Lamela (back) while Emmanuel Adebayor is struggling with a heel injury.

Liverpool meanwhile will head into the with a virtually full squad to choose from with Jose Enrique the only absentee while Rodgers will be mindful of the fact that Steven Gerrard is one yellow card away from a two match ban.
