Tottenham Hotspur will have to do a lot right on Saturday evening to beat Liverpool and keep pressure on Arsenal in the race for fourth; here are three keys to a Spurs win.
Liverpool is on a heck of a run. The Reds are on fire with one trophy already secured and a realistic shot at three more. This past week, Liverpool topped Villareal, reaching the Champions League finals to face Real Madrid. The Reds will also face Chelsea in a rematch from the Carabao Cup final in the FA Cup final. While Liverpool’s success in those competitions is now down to just one game, their success – like Tottenham’s in the top four race – is based on a one game at a time mentality.
Liverpool sits one point behind Manchester City in the current Premier League table, whereas Tottenham sits two points behind Arsenal. With only four games remaining for both clubs, this is a do-or-die moment in their respective season pursuits. Liverpool’s success makes this seem an impossible task for Tottenham on the road at Anfield. However, Spurs’ success against Liverpool in the first match gives players and fans reason to be optimistic about heading to Merseyside.
If Tottenham is to pull off the upset and beat Liverpool, Spurs have three keys to take the day.
