Liverpool – Tottenham – The last meeting of the 29 round of the English Premiership is a big derby in which meet two teams that are in great form, Liverpool and Tottenham.
However, the Spurs are currently slightly better positioned in the table standing because they occupy the high third place, while the Reds are just the seventh with even 12 points less than their next rival. Also, the team from Anfield has not won in the last six matches, while the Spurs in that period scored four victories. Begins: 10.03.2013 – 17:00 CET
Of course, that the latter information gives to the domestic football players only an extra motive to finally win the Spurs, which would not be a surprise as they are in a terrific form. In fact, the coach Rodgers players have in the last two Premiership duels made two convincing victories over Swansea and Wigan, scoring a total of nine goals and without received a single one. And while these results have enabled them to advance for one position in the Premiership table, the recent win of 3-1 over Russian Zenit in the rematch of the European League sixteenth finals was not enough to pass further, having in mind that the first match in St. Petersburg was lost with 2-0. Still, the coach Rodgers is very pleased with the attitude of his players, especially as they continue with a very offensive style of the game that the audience in the stadiums most definitely loves to watch. Precisely because of this and now against the Spurs we expect another great offensive edition of the Reds, primarily because of the returns of the recovered Sturridge in the first team. On the other hand, injured defender Kelly, stopper Skrtel and striker Borini are not ready to play.
Probable lineups Liverpool: Reina – Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Jose Enrique – Lucas, Gerrard – Suarez, Coutinho, Downing – Sturridge
We have already said that the Spurs this derby at Anfield waits in a great shape, so a spectacle is kind of granted. More precisely, the coach Villas-Boas players were not defeated in the championship since the beginning of December last year and after 28 league rounds well deserve the shiny third position. Several blunders made by the city rivals Chelsea certainly comes handy, which is now left behind at the table by two points while behind the second Citizens, Tottenham lags five points. Also, in the Europa League after eliminating French Lyon, they have made a great result in the first match of the round of sixteen against Inter Milan, which was won at home with a convincing 3-0. Of course, this improved mood of the coach Villas-Boas players even more and now rightly hope for one good result against great rival Liverpool. Let us add that because of earlier injuries out of the team are defender Kaboul and midfielder Sandro, while striker Adebayor and midfielders Dempsey and Huddlestone are not yet fully recovered.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Friedel – Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto – Parker, Dembele – Lennon, Bale, Sigurdsson – Defoe
