Liverpool v Tottenham 20:00 Mon
A fantastic Monday Night Football fixture takes place in the Premier League this week as in-form Liverpool host title chasing Tottenham at Anfield with Paddy Power making the Reds evens for victory.
Both teams are capable of some excellent attacking football on their day and they also have plenty to play for in the remainder of the season. Overall, it is all the makings of a Premier League classic.
Looking at Liverpool to begin with, it is fair to say that they have had a very productive couple of weeks on several different fronts.
Since the disappointment of losing to Bolton, they have made it to the Carling Cup final at the expense of Manchester City and knocked Manchester United out of the FA Cup.
Then, in their most recent Premier League match, they ran out 3-0 winners at Wolves to move to within four points of the Champions League places.
As for Tottenham, they still have one thing on their mind above all else – even their involvement in the FA Cup – and that is a genuine challenge for the title.
At the moment they are five points from league leaders Manchester City, but they have stayed in touch with the top two for most of the season and will not want to stop now.
They do have a tough run of fixtures to come, starting with Monday night’s trip to Anfield, but they will be confident of coming through this spell in the style of potential Champions.
With regards to the team news for this Monday Night fixture, Liverpool have Luis Suarez available again after his extended ban, while Tottenham have no fresh injury concerns and could name the same side that defeated Wigan last time out.
When these two teams met at White Hart Lane earlier this season, Tottenham dished out a 4-0 hammering and there is no doubt that revenge will be on the minds of the Liverpool players.
Overall, it should be a cracking match between two of English football’s leading teams. The action gets underway from 8pm on Monday evening.
