Liverpool is top of the Premier League table with a high point, ready to face Tottenham Hotspurs in today’s game to slug it out. Having rested a number of stars against Everton in the FA Cup, Jurgen Klopp’s men will be fresh and an hungry to extend their unbeaten results so far in the ongoing Premier League.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho is desperate to end Liverpool’s unbeaten record, but Paul Higham says Tottenham will struggle in today’s game.
Mourinho versus Liverpool is almost as big an occasion as the team he is in charge of, with the Portuguese having faced the Reds 28 times throughout his career – more than he has faced any other club. Of those 28 games he has lost just seven, while in the Premier League he has lost only three of 17.
The three-time Premier League winner has never come up against a Liverpool team like this one, though, with Jurgen Klopp’s side having picked up 58 points from the 60 on offer to build a commanding 13-point lead at the top of the table.

- Liverpool have won nine of their last 14 Premier League meetings with Spurs, losing just once.
