Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham Hotspur will be ready for Liverpool challenge

Kieran Trippier of Tottenham Hotspur runs with the ball under pressure from Alexis Sanchez of Manchester United during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester

With just 13 top-flight matches remaining after this weekend, a five-point advantage - were Liverpool to triumph over the Lilywhites - could prove potentially key, particularly with Spurs' schedule congested by being involved in three competitions. They have lost 11 times on the road against the league's biggest teams under Pochettino, including three defeats this season. It would seem unthinkable for Alderweireld not to be an automatic choice: for most of last season and this one before he got injured against Real Madrid, he has been the pick of the defenders.

Liverpool are third in the league with 50 points from 25 games, 18 points behind runaway league leaders Manchester City.

Mauricio Pochettino's side arrive on Merseyside in high spirits having seen off Manchester United at Wembley in their previous outing, and a win against Liverpool will see them enter the top four and overtake the Reds in the table. They defeated Huddersfield 3-0 on Tuesday and will look to carry on in the same vein against Spurs. There's a world of difference between being fit and comfortable in training and taking on Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in a full-blooded contest in front of a crowd of 45,000.

Larry Nassar Attacked: Internet Embraces Furious Dad Randall Margraves
Following the recess in Friday's proceedings, the judge declined to cite Margraves for contempt of court. Mr Margraves, speaking at a press conference afterwards, apologised, saying he was "very embarrassed".

"He needs to adapt, know the players, the Premier League, the philosophy of the new team". "They sign the players they want. We have to be ready for achieving the biggest thing". Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur meet in a Premier League fixture on February 4, 2018 at Anfield in Liverpool. Playing at Anfield offers an altogether different challenge, though, as history is not on Tottenham's side. They had a good start, a good middle, and a good finish to the game, and that's why they won, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the next game. For Liverpool to beat their close rivals, Salah will have to be on the top of his game.

Last but not least, the talisman leading the line goes to none other than Harry Kane. But he is the one who brings a tremendous creative spark to this Spurs side.

Harry Kane has had a hand in six goals in six Premier League appearances against Liverpool, with four goals and two assists.

One of the punishments has a player literally handcuffed to the game board (handcuff included). And if you successfully pull off the cheat without getting caught, you get a reward.

However the German is not keen to rush him into action just as yet. This means that Eriksen's build-up play could have contributed nearly 11 goals for Spurs this season.

The Reds haven't lost at Anfield in 12 matches this season, their home unbeaten run totalling 14 games.

So, under the Anfield lights, everything is in place for another classic between the two sides.

Israel condemns Poland for rushing through Holocaust law
Nazi Germany occupied Poland from September 1939 until 1945 when Soviet forces liberated the country. The phrase "Polish death camps" is a controversial one, and rightly so.

It is seven years since Tottenham last won away at Liverpool, who have emerged victorious from five of the last seven meetings on their home turf.
