The game of the weekend in the Premier League comes on Sunday when 3rd place Liverpool host 5th place Tottenham at Anfield. Both teams have been playing very well recently, and both have aspirations of finishing in the top four. Those two ingredients should make for a cracking game that both fans of the clubs and neutrals will really enjoy watching.
In 3rd place, Liverpool currently hold a two point lead over Tottenham so a win here for Liverpool extends their lead to five points. However, they know that should Tottenham go to Anfield and win, there is the potential for Liverpool to be outside of the top four after the weekend. That shows how much is at stake, and with just 13 games remaining in the season, every single point matters at the top of the table. With Manchester City looking like they are running away from the rest of the teams below them on their way to a Premier League title, the top four battle is where all the action is going to be, and this game is the first of many big ones this month.
Not only does this game put two great teams against each other, but there are two long streaks that are going head to head. Liverpool have been in great form overall, but it is their home form that has been exceptional. They are currently undefeated in their last 12 home games and that is something they will not want to lose, especially not to a top four rival like Tottenham.
