Liverpool vs Tottenham: Team News, Likely Line-ups & Predicted Score

By on February 6, 2012

Anfield Kop

Liverpool welcome Tottenham to Anfield tonight with both sides desperate to pick up all three points. The Reds currently sit seventh in the table after victories for Arsenal and Newcastle this weekend, so Kenny Dalglish will be keen secure a win that will see them move within two points of fourth-placed Chelsea.

A win for Tottenham will put them just three points behind Man Utd and five behind league leaders Man City, so three points are needed to maintain the Londoners title push.

Team News

The big news for Liverpool is of course the return of Luis Suarez after serving his eight game ban. Kenny Dalglish has to decide whether to bring the Uruguayan straight back in and sacrifice Carroll, who got on the scoresheet last week against Wolves.

Steven Gerrard should also return after being rested for the mid week win at Molineux.

Tottenham have several injury worries ahead of the game. Rafa Van der Vaart, Emmanuel Adebayor, Kyle Walker and Ledley King are rated as doubtful. Walker and King are likely to be fit, while Van der Vaart and Adebayor are less certain.

Louis Saha is on standby to make his debut should Adebayor be ruled out.  Jermain Defoe and Aaron Lennon are likely to miss out, and will join William Gallas and Tom Huddlestone on the sidelines.

Sandro is in line to return after a long injury lay off and Harry Redknapp may opt to play two defensive midfielders at Anfield.

Predicted Score

The outcome of the match could hinge on what team Harry Redknapp is able to field. Should the visitors line-up as above, they will have a great chance of taking at least a point away from Anfield. However, should the likes of King, Adebayor and Van der Vaart not make it, i can see Liverpool winning this one.

Liverpool are undefeated at Anfield this season, but have drawn on seven occasions. The most likely result tonight is Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham.

    Not at all surprised as Mr. Howard Webb has to always intervene to help out his beloved Utd.
    Why cannot the FA not be so obvious!!

    if we (lfc)loose today game then the fault will be from kenny because today is a game that will give lfc hope of being in top 4 and if kenny made a mistake of starting andy carroll then i dont think that lfc will win,but if kenny start with suarez,bellamy,kuyt,gerrad,adam,and others then our three point is sure and this is a game that our players should play the best out of theirs to give us the three ponit that will keep us (lfc) in top 4.

    Liverpool all the way and it will just be that bit easier with Suarez on the pitch. Spurs have a had a much better season so far but Liverpool have the home advantage, Suarez back who will be chomping at the bit to get goals and of course the wonderful Mr Gerrard :O) As for Spurs being better .. Not over the last 5 games ? Man city & Man United out of both cups with a few goals from the rest of the team in the last couple of games !!! O and its my 40th today so I,m owed it lol
