Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool – Live Blog – 28 November 2010
Tottenham host Liverpool in the final EPL match of the weekend. Below is a live blog featuring coverage as well as a match preview.
They have struggled in away matches and will have a tough test to get a result at White Hart Lane. An injury to Steven Gerrard will force other players to step up. Liverpool will need to start getting points away from Anfield if they want to finish in the top 4 this season.
Coming off an impressive Champions League win (also clinching a knockout stage spot), Spurs are in good form and looking to remain close to the top of the table. Gareth Bale has been as good as any player this season and manager Harry Redknapp has his club playing with confidence.
Players To Watch
Gareth Bale (Tottenham) – He’s been the best player for Spurs and his electric pace stretches defenses and creates space in the box. When Bale is getting forward and creating chances, Tottenham are a tough team to beat.
Fernando Torres (Liverpool) – The Spanish striker has been inconsistent this season but Liverpool are unbeaten when he’s scored.
Recent EPL Form (last six matches)

Tottenham – DLLDWW
Tottenham are unbeaten in their last five league matches while Liverpool have only won one of their last six league matches. This combined with the injury to Gerrard gives Spurs the clear advantage. Liverpool could surprise and keep it close but a win for Tottenham is likely.
