Tottenham face Liverpool this weekend, buoyed by picking up their first Barclays Premier League win of the season at Wolves last weekend.
It’s been a tough start 2011/12 for Harry Redknapp’s men, with the ‘will he, won’t he?’Luka Modric saga taking up most of his time until the transfer window slammed shut on August 31.

But now that the squad is settled, Spurs can concentrate on picking up those crucial league points. After all, the White Hart Lane club will still have designs on a top four finish this season, despite a turbulent summer and beyond.
For me, the addition of former Arsenal hero Emmanuel Adebayor is an important one if Tottenham are to challenge those coveted Champions League spots.
While the now-departed Peter Crouch is a solid performer, Adebayor is on another level for me and if Spurs chief Redknapp can keep the Togo star happy, he could score a hatful this season.
The main obstacle the North Londoners could face is that they are involved in the Europa League. That particular competition involves a lot of games and, more importantly, a lot of travelling and Redknapp will have to manage his squad carefully.
Their weekend opponents have had a solid, if unspectacular, start to the season with two wins, a draw and a defeat on the board. In truth, however, they really should have got more from their only defeat of the campaign at Stoke last Saturday.
Because of Spurs’ Thursday night trip to Greece to play PAOK Salonika, this one is a 13:30 kick-off this Sunday and for the gambling man, your dollar should be going on a high-scoring draw at White Hart Lane.
Further down the line, both clubs should be pushing Arsenal hard for that fourth spot in the Premier League as well.
