Arguably the most entertaining encounter of the embryonic English Premier League season is on the cards this Wednesday as Jose Mourinho takes his side to Anfield.

There is nothing separating these two sides at the top of the table other than a five-goal difference keeping Spurs at the top.

They both have 25 points coming into the encounter after both playing a total of 12 games- winning 7, 4 draws and 1 loss thus far.

What time is Liverpool vs Tottenham?

The game will kick off at 11pm Kenyan time at Anfield.

Liverpool vs Tottenham team news

The home side are continuing to add names to their injury list with Diogo Jota being the latest to be ruled out of the upcoming fixture, joining the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Xherdan Shaqiri, Naby Keita and Joel Matip.

Mohamed Salah, who’s penalty earned them a point over the weekend against Fulham, is expected to lead the attacking line alongside a familiar front three with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.

For the visitors, Serge Aurier and Erik Lamela are doubts ahead of the clash but Mourinho seems to have a rather fully fit squad to choose from.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min continue to be proving their doubters wrong with their formidable partnership already producing a remarkable 19 goals already.

Liverpool vs Tottenham head to head

The reds still boast a healthy advantage over Spurs in the past, winning 23 times out of 47 matches played between them.

Spurs have won 12 times with a similar number of matches ending in a draw.

Liverpool vs Tottenham current form

Both sides are unbeaten in their last five matches, the only difference being Spurs have won thrice and Liverpool have won one less than the visitors in that time frame.

Liverpool vs Tottenham prediction

Liverpool are the highest scoring side in the league this season and it gets dicey as they welcome a side that has the best defensive record this far.

There is no doubt that neither side lacks the quality required to edge their opponents but with all that is at stake, it should not come as a surprise if it ends in a stalemate.
