The upcoming clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool is expected to be a thrilling contest, with both teams in excellent form and undefeated in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool, after drawing their season opener against Chelsea, have won five consecutive games.
Tottenham, on the other hand, drew their season opener against Brentford but then won four in a row before a thrilling 2-2 draw with Arsenal in the North London derby.
ESPN pundit Ale Moreno believes that the outcome of the match against Liverpool will be determined in midfield.
He singled out Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr, who have both been in excellent form under manager Ange Postecoglou, as crucial to Tottenham’s chances against Liverpool.
Speaking on ESPN, Moreno claimed that Yves Bissouma and Pape Sarr will need to be at their very best if Spurs are to get a result against Liverpool.
“There’s an element of they’re open not only when they attack, they’re open defensively and open to transition, that can be an asset for Liverpool.
If I’m looking at Spurs, while it’s easy to pick out Maddison, Son or Kulusevski, for them to be successful in this match, the work of Bissouma and Sarr has to be on point.
They have to be organised enough to realise they have to be the ones to stop the transition, to protect the backline and know there are moments when they join in the attack.”
Liverpool rebuilt their midfield in the summer bringing in Alexis Mac Allister, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Ryan Gravenberch – all of whom have made an instant impact to the team.
With both teams possessing quality players and playing attacking football, the match is expected to be highly entertaining.
