Liverpool appear to be riding the crest of a wave in terms of our impressive start to the season and we all believe that will continue against Tottenham but one pundit has sounded the Reds a warning before the match.
Speaking with Sky Sports, Paul Merson said: “If Liverpool come away from Tottenham with a win next week then it’s a massive result. I’m not saying they will lose the game, but to go to Tottenham now, you’re up against a very good team with good players
“Liverpool are doing well right now because you just have to stick in there. You have to take it a game at a time and you don’t want to be giving them a head start.
“The biggest advantage Liverpool have is they can draw to Tottenham and Brighton over the next two weeks because they still have to play Man City twice – and they can beat Man City twice”.
It wouldn’t be the best tactic to go out for a draw against both Tottenham and Brighton in our next two league games and if we have such confidence that we can do the double over Manchester City – then we should be looking for wins in every game.
It’s been such a great start to the season that it does feel like we really can beat any team that we come up against, with cup competitions providing a great excuse to hand minutes to squad players and rotate the squad for freshness.
Diogo Jota and Cody Gakpo have had a good start to the season but to be able to hand them both a start and see them both score against Leicester City will be great for Jurgen Klopp.
Fringe players being able to jump into action will be a massive plus and if we keep winning, that mentality will follow through into the bigger matches like our next two in the Premier League.
Let’s go and get a ‘massive result’, do it again in the following fixture and make a real impact by showing everyone that we’re gunning for bigger prizes than just Champions League qualification this season.
