Liverpool vs Tottenham

Liverpool's meeting with Tottenham is of course a huge one for the Merseysiders, with any sort of slip up likely to cost them a shot at the Premier League title.

The Reds head into the weekend’s action sitting 2nd in the Premier League, one point adrift of Manchester City with four games left to play.

As for Tottenham, they put an end to their mini rut by downing Leicester City 3-1 last time out.

Elsewhere, Manchester City are due to take on Newcastle United on Sunday the 8th of May, with the Magpies, as was the case against Liverpool, expected to prove a tough nut to crack.
