Upset At The Lane?

Liverpool heads to White Hart Lane Sunday, to take on Spurs.

Yes, the same Spurs team that came back and beat their mortal enemies, Arsenal.

Yes, the same Spurs team that just advanced to the last 16 of Champions League play.

Yes, the same Spurs team that took Liverpool’s t0p four spot. The spot that should be, and will again be owned by the Reds.

…At least that’s what the hope is in the Merseyside.

Can Liverpool stop the most in-form player in the world, Sunday?

This may prove to be one of the most pivotal matches of the season. Tottenham is proving every week that the North London club deserves to be one of the elites. Not just in the Premiership, but in the world. Harry Redknapp is already talking Premier League title, and Spurs fans have the lilywhite-colored sunglasses in believing that they can and will win Champions League. One step at a time boys. You can’t outdo Liverpool THAT quickly.

Liverpool will be welcoming Lucas back into the fold, and also (possibly) Joe Cole. The Reds NEED points from this match, in order to prove to the haters that they are still on the way up. Tottenham needs this win because they are in the thick of the title hunt. Someone remind them that it is not Boxing Day quite yet.

For Tottenham, it looks like Gareth Bale will be healthy, but Rafael van der Vaart will not. Mixed blessings for Liverpool, as having both of them on the pitch is killer for any opposing side; while having one of them on the pitch is a migraine headache for any back four.

Will Cole return for Liverpool? Can he make an impact?

For the Reds, this would be the lineup that I expect: Reina, Carragher, Skrtel, Kyrgiakos, Konchesky, Cole (if he is out, then Maxi), Meireles, Lucas, Kuyt, Ngog, Torres.

A 4-4-1-1, with Ngog as a low-lying striker should cause the still-questionable Spurs back line some issues.

If Roy wants to quiet a lot of his critics, he would do well to win this match. The win would catapult Liverpool above Spurs on goal differential. One would wonder what ‘Arry would have to say about Liverpool after something like that.

Spurs have won the past two Premier League matches against Liverpool, but that may change Sunday at The Lane.

I can say this: I had a dream last night that Liverpool put 10 by Spurs. That would be a bit of overconfidence from myself to predict that, though.

Park The Bus’ pick: Liverpool 2-1. Goals from Torres and Kuyt for the Reds. Goal from Bale for Spurs.
