Liverpool vs Tottenham
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 25th October 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Anfield Stadium, Liverpool
In the League Cup since 2002 we have met twice winning one round each. In 2004 Liverpool beat us in the quarter-final after the two legs both ended in 0-0 draws.
In 2008 we won 3-0 and lost 2-1 to go through 4-2 on aggregate in the fourth round.
With Liverpool not having qualified for Europe this season they can afford to play a strong side, while we will be looking to play the youngsters who played against Gillingham in the last round. It is a chance for a player like Harry Winks to show once again what he can do. Cameron Carter-Vickers and Kevin Wimmer can renew their partnership, but they will have a far more demanding game than the one-sided rout of the Kent-based side.
Georges-Kevin N'Koudou came on in that game as did young Marcus Edwards. Josh Onomah scored his debut goal and Vincent Janssen tucked away a penalty.
The Spurs XI who started were: Vorm; Trippier, Carter-Vickers, Wimmer, Davies; Carroll, Winks; Lamela, Onomah, Eriksen (C); Janssen.
Subs: Whiteman, Vertonghen, Walkes, Wanyama, N'koudou, Edwards, Son.
