What we learned from the Tottenham-Liverpool match

Liverpool feasts at an open buffet: We will deal with this more in terms of tactics, but Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah will say thank you for inviting Tottenham to attack the failed scheme. Salah is playing so well these days and will only grow as he enjoys Darwin Nunez’s continued understanding of the Premier League. Conte screwed up, and Liverpool weren’t going to complain about it (although, it must be said, sometimes Jurgen Klopp doesn’t like teams that “don’t play football”).

Health will be wealth for Tottenham: Talk in Spurs circles has often centered on what they will do in the transfer market to get “help” for Harry Kane, but Spurs are currently missing Son Heung-Min and Richarlison. They are simply brought back Dejan Kulusevski and he immediately helped Kane make it 2-1, so while the Spurs would like to have more attacking options, they would probably be a heck of a lot better just to keep their current group of scorers healthy. Kulusevski’s four assists this season have been surpassed by only five other Premier League players.

Rub green for red: Trent Alexander-Arnold avoided a penalty when he pushed Ryan Sessegnon in the first half. It wasn’t a crazy contact, but a mirror image of Joao Cancelo’s foul that put Fulham on the spot and left Man City at a 60-minute disadvantage on Sunday. It would be interesting to see what a chance on the spot for Spurs at that moment would have meant for the rest of this game.

tactical focus

Tottenham again invited an opponent – and in this case, remember, we are talking about Liverpool — to do what they like against a sort of 5-3-2 and it’s no surprise that the Spurs were down 2-0 before they decided to make their mark in the game. It’s also not surprising that Antonio Conte’s men did better when they tried to play the Liverpool game, but it was too late. Conte is a brilliant boss, but in the last month or so he has let his side down.

Key storylines

Spurs have struggled and defeats to Manchester United and Newcastle have set them back in recent weeks. However, they showed real fighting spirit and comeback victories against Bournemouth and Marseille put them in their rightful place with two league games before the World Cup break. Conte’s men have been losing very hard in games and this will likely be their plan again, especially with Richarlison and Heung Min Son out of action and Dejan Kulusevski close to returning. Liverpool are still plagued by defensive problems and have been plagued by malaise all season. The usual level of energy just isn’t there and Klopp is trying to change his team as often as possible, but the Reds also have a backlog of injuries.

Uniform players to keep an eye on

Harry Kane is having a sensational season for the Spurs and will be their main player as three other forwards in the Spurs rotation are injured. Pierre-Emile Hoybjerg and Rodrigo Bentancourt are also playing well and have scored the winning goals in the last two games. Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has scored in each of his last three games and Darwin Nunes has scored five in his last seven as they do their best to give Liverpool something to hold on to.

Tottenham team news, injuries, squad options

The Spurs have confirmed that Son Heung Min will be undergoing surgery for a fractured eye socket and the South Korean superstar will have to look forward to see if he can play in the World Cup. Kulusevski could come back off the bench, while Richarlison is out and Christian Romero is also recovering from injury and will not be available. All this means that Lucas Moura and Brian Gil could (ultimately) support Harry Kane in attack.

Liverpool team news, injuries, squad options

Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Naby Keita, Arthur Melo and James Milner were eliminated, as was Joel Matip. Klopp is launching Andy Robertson, Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott, who were on the bench ahead of the midweek win over Napoli.
