Titanic title race clash
Ahead of Wednesday night’s kick off, Liverpool and Spurs are tied for points at the top of the Premier League table.
Jose Mourinho’s side are ahead on goal difference, in large part down to the Reds’ disastrous showing at Aston Villa.
The winner of Wednesday’s tie will pull clear at the top of the table.
Heading into a hectic December schedule that lead could prove vital, particularly in a psychological sense.
Jürgen Klopp praises Jose Mourinho
The Reds’ North London rivals are enjoying great success under their Portuguese coach.
The manager’s appointment was somewhat of a shock at the time, coming soon after Mauricio Pochettino had reached the Champions League final.
Jürgen Klopp believes Jose Mourinho is doing a terrific job at Spurs. The German told his pre-match press conference:
“[Jose Mourinho] showed obviously he can comeback, if it was that.
“Very impressive what he has done at Spurs. The way they play this year is really good.
“He turned them into a results-machine. Performances, if not at best, they still win, defend collectively. Impressive.”
What RTK has to say
Jürgen Klopp is right to praise Jose Mourinho.
The Spurs boss has worked wonders in North London, they were right to be patient with him.
Now that the gaffer has established the core of his team, a core we are used to seeing from Mourinho, they are looking a real force.
Hopefully the experience of this Liverpool side will pay off in the long run.
Spurs, however, could well pose a problem in the coming years.
