Suarez Returns For Spurs Fixture

Be great if he scored!...
Liverpool welcome Tottenham to Anfield Monday night as they look to continue their good run of form and pick up some more points in the League. With Luis Suarez completing his ban, the Anfield faithful can't wait to see him back on the pitch, an extra threat for Spurs to be aware of.

Liverpool don't have any new injury worries, as mentioned Suarez is back and also Gerrard will be made available after missing out on the Wolves game in the week.

For Spurs, they have worries up front with Defoe, Van Der Vaart and Adebayor all having doubts hanging over their fitness. Also unavailable are Huddlestone and Gallas but new signing Louis Saha could be an option for Harry Redknapp.

Liverpool are currently 7th in the table and 11 points behind Tottenham who are in third. Harry Redknapp it must be said is doing a great job with the Spurs side but there's still always a label that sticks to them, that they'll fall at the last hurdle.

Liverpool are still fighting for 4th place and a chance to play in the Champions League and although it may be too late to catch Spurs, it would certainly help our causes by taking 3 points from them on Monday night.

The last time the two sides met was in September last year and it was a pretty embarrassing affair for Liverpool. The Reds didn't manage to score in the Spurs 4-0 rout and also had to deal with Skrtel and Adam getting sent off.

Stat Sandwich

  • Liverpool are unbeaten in the League at Anfield so far this season.
  • Adebayor has scored three goals in his last three League games against Liverpool.
  • If Daniel Agger starts it will be his 100th Premier League appearance.

I think after our recent run of results this is the perfect time to play Spurs. Redknapp's boys are going strong and they're more than capable of scoring goals but the Liverpool defence is something to be proud of at the moment. The partnership being built between Skrtel and Agger is brilliant.

With Luis Suarez back in the action he's always bound to set alight a game. You never quite know what he's going to do and hopefully the Spurs defence don't either.

Being unbeaten at home is fantastic but not when you have such a high collection of draws, even though a draw with Tottenham would probably be a good result i want to see Liverpool get that win Monday night because they are fully capable and are brimming with confidence.
