Spurs battling for a top-four finish
Jose Mourinho’s side started the week sitting fifth in the table and involved in what is shaping up to be a bitter battle for a top-four finish this season. The Londoners have won nine and drawn six of their opening 18 games. The 33 points against their name means they are just one behind Liverpool in fourth and eight off the pace set by current leaders Man Utd.
Unbeaten in their last four league games, Tottenham have won two and drawn two during that spell. They banked all three points last time out thanks to a hard-fought 3-1 win over Sheffield United on the road. Goals from Aurier, Kane and Ndombele won the day.
Reds drop off the pace
Liverpool won the Premier League title at a canter last season and were the pick of many pundits to repeat the feat and bag two-in-row. They started the campaign well enough and were in the driving seat for a long time but have dropped down the pecking order on the back of a poor run of form. Liverpool are now fourth and off the pace.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have won nine, drawn seven and lost three games so far. They have 34 points on the board which is closer to Southampton down in 10th than Man Utd in pole position. The Reds are on a winless run, collecting only three of the last 15 points available. They were beaten 1-0 by Burnley when last in league action and then lost 3-2 to Man Utd in the FA Cup.
