Opinion: Its beat Liverpool or forget the title for Tottenham
By Bruce Grove -

Tottenham has to treat their match against Liverpool as a must-win game because that is exactly what it is.

The Lilywhites will face the defending champions in their worst possible shape. If they cannot get a win, then Jose Mourinho’s men can forget about the title.

Spurs’ start to this season hasn’t been the most consistent, but the good news is that almost every team has had a mixed or poor campaign.

This has made it possible for Tottenham to remain in the title race.

Nevertheless, if we fail to beat this struggling Liverpool team, then I strongly believe that we should forget about the title.

This is not because we would mathematically be out of the equation, rather it is because it will show that we don’t have the mental strength to get the title this season.

Liverpool, have over the years, showed that it would take something extra to win the league or even get close to winning it.

Now that they are at their lowest point, we simply have to compound their woes with a win.

What that would do for our confidence ahead of the remaining games is unimaginable, but we will send a good message to ourselves and not-so-good message to our title rivals that we mean business.

Sadly the news is that Requilion is out for three weeks so we will have one brain fart in Davies if fit and another in Dier probably in the back four. Our only chance is attacking.. Kane, Son, and Bale with Ndombele in midfield and Hoijberg and Sissoko covering the backline..

Well, Liverpool walked it last time of course scoring 85 goals and VAR assisted. This time they are the most negatively effected by VAR decisions and can’t seem to hit a barn door all sudden? Couldn’t see off West Brom at home yet Leeds, Arsenal and now City went to West Brom and got 5, Fulham and Newcastle too were suddenly a match for them, and they couldn’t break down Saints when even Arsenal went there and got 3. In a year where entertainment is paramount importance for distraction Liverpool are doing a good job of being a shadow of last seasons team so a 10 horse race can ensue for top 4. So, Everyone on full pay furlough, eating crisps and watching Netflix and the strangely exciting Premier League, advocating full lockdown and the destruction of economy and lives, well, the holidays about to end, and that percentile of this generation when compared to their grandparents who fought and died for the protection of freedom, or so they were told, are held up to a revealing light. A light exposing a cowardice and consent to an evil that will leave us all with nothing and more importantly, generations to come. Who WILL win the title though?? Jeff Bezos will get even richer as we find out.

I read that Henderson will be back in midfield on Thursday after filling in at centre back before his injury.
Liverpool have only lost 2 PL games since Oct 2017 when Henderson was played in midfield, both to Man City.
I think this will be a very tough match for us to win.Sanchez and Sissoko must not play if we are to contemplate a clean sheet. PEH and Tanguy will need to play out of their skins. No room for slackers or mistakes.

I feel we should have beaten them at Anfield this season, so if they go out there with the right mentality I’m sure they have a good chance. I bet their defence has spent the last period of time wondering how to stop kane and Sonny, so they will be as worried about as as we should be about them

Klopp is starting to look a little bit like the tired, angry, out of ideas Dortmund 2014-15 version of himself. Somethin’s cookin and there’s a scent of Spurs victory in the air

The way you’re talking about Liverpool Bruce you’d think they were in a relegation fight. Compared to the heights of the last two seasons they are off the pace and injuries have hurt but it still won’t be a cake walk.

As a Spurs fan with a long memory I’m still haunted by that stat that used to be wheeled out every time we had an away game against them, namely that the last time Spurs beat them away was the year after the Titanic sank.
