A very tough test expected tonight


Liverpool vs Tottenham
England – League Cup
Date: Tuesday, 25th October 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Anfield Stadium, Liverpool

Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur usually means goals and with this being the League Cup and Tottenham playing a young side you would expect that trend to continue.

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.
