Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, England
Key Stat: Tottenham have won just one of their last 18 matches against Liverpool in all competitions, losing the last six in a row.
Expert Verdict: Liverpool's poor 2021 continued last time out with their FA Cup defeat to Manchester United, following up their rare home loss to Burnley. Spurs are unbeaten this month by contrast and, while they have a dreadful record in this fixture, this is a chance to claim a rare win against the Reds.
With both teams having dropped out of the top four, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool meet in the Premier League at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs are looking to maintain their unbeaten January, while Liverpool’s lone victory in 2021 came against an illness-depleted Aston Villa second string in the FA Cup. The two teams meet on January 28 and the live action gets underway at 20:00 local time.
