Liverpool need a win
Boy oh boy do Liverpool need a win.
Jürgen Klopp hasn’t won a Premier League game in over a month.
We haven’t seen a run of form this bad in a while.
We can’t really blame the Reds given the problems they’ve faced this season.

When the injury crisis began in October and November we all expected the wheels to come off, they just didn’t for a while.
Now the ripple effects of losing the spine of our side are beginning to come to the fore.
A win for the Reds could turn their season around and back on track, they could still be in the title race. Anything less would make top four a priority.
Signs of life
Last weekend we saw the first signs of life from this Liverpool side in a while.
At Old Trafford the Reds were fluid for periods.
The Reds managed to score twice with two well worked and well finished goals.
Liverpool left Manchester empty handed because they started with an inexperienced teenager at the back. A stronger back line and we win that game.
Liverpool beating Spurs relies on Mourinho
The key to Liverpool beating Spurs lies in how brave Jose Mourinho is.
Should the Portuguese coach come out and attack then we can rely on the Reds to exploit any gaps left in behind on the counter.
If the North London side decided to defend then we may well struggle.
The absence of our starting centre back partnership and our first choice midfield has seen us fail to break down stubborn defences in recent weeks.
Man United came out to play at Old Trafford and we punished them.
If Jose Mourinho is brave enough to come out and play then we may well get the result we need.
