Tottenham face Liverpool in the Premier League as Jurgen Klopp’s in-form Reds face their toughest test of the season at Ange Postecoglou’s resurgent Spurs.
Both sides are unbeaten so far in the Premier League, with Liverpool winning five of their opening six fixtures to lead the challenge to Manchester City in the early standings. But Tottenham are only two points behind after battling back to a thrilling draw at rivals Arsenal last weekend, as James Maddison and Son Heung-min starred in the comeback.
Now Postecoglou’s side face a Liverpool team who are also reborn from last campaign with a new-look midfield. Dominik Szoboszlai’s stunning strike helped the Reds to their seventh win in a row in all competitions in midweek, and there will be talk of Klopp’s side fighting for the title should they beat Spurs for the first time this season.

33’ – Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool
Spurs continue cutting through the Liverpool defence, with a well-worked move ending in Richarlison blazing over the bar.
60 minutes looks like a long time for Liverpool to hold out, but it’s worth remembering that they won both previous games where they received a red card.
And there’s almost a timely reminder as Luis Diaz breaks through and finishes well across Vicario. There’s a VAR check, but he was just offside.

VAR Correction – RED CARD!
Simon Hooper overturns his decision, and Curtis Jones is sent off!
Bissouma is still receiving treatment, but there was no malice in the challenge. It’s dubious, but Jones was over the ball and impacted Bissouma’s anke.
That is Liverpool’s third red card this season.
