          Kick off time: 16:30

          Location: Anfield

          The title race is on with three games to go, but Liverpool don’t just need wins themselves but they also need their rivals to drop points for any shot at the title. Tottenham, however, are in the thick of the battle for Champions League football, needing a win to chase down Villa.

          Liverpool currently sit third in the Premier League after 35 games. The Reds have 22 wins, nine draws and four losses, leaving them on 75 points, five points behind top of the league Arsenal.

          The Reds have been amongst the goals this season, scoring 75 goals in 35 games, an average of 2.21 goals a game. Liverpool have been a little more inconsistent defensively, conceding 36 goals this season and have kept nine clean sheets.

          Tottenham sit just below Liverpool in fifth in the Premier League. In 34 games, Spurs have 18 wins, six draws and 10 losses which leaves them on 60 points, seven points behind Aston Villa in the last Champions League spot.

          Spurs have also been in form in front of goal this season. In 34 games, Tottenham have scored 65 goals which is an average of 1.91 goals a game. Tottenham have also been inconsistent at the other end of the pitch, conceding 54 goals and keeping six clean sheets.

          Liverpool and Tottenham have met 182 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1909. Liverpool have the far better record in the fixture with 89 wins in comparison to Tottenham’s 49 wins. The other 44 games have ended in a share of the points.

          The last five games in this fixture have seen two Liverpool wins, two draws and one win for Tottenham - the controversial 2 - 1 win earlier this season. The last seven games in this fixture have seen both sides on the scoresheet, in fact, the last time only one side scored was back in 2020.
