Venue: White Hart Lane

Date: 28/11/12

Kick-Off: 7:45pm

Liverpool face a tough trip away to as they look to extend their run of eight games unbeaten in the league.

A win at White Hart Lane could see the Reds move into the top half of the table, while Spurs will hope to pick up three another three points after their victory against West Ham at the weekend saw them end a run of three successive defeats.

Andre Wisdom has recovered from the knee injury that caused him to miss Liverpool’s 0-0 draw with Swansea, while William Gallas will hope to earn a recall for Tottenham after missing the West Ham game. Emmanuel Adebayor remains suspended after being sent-off during Tottenham’s 5-3 defeat at the hands of Arsenal, so will expect to lead the line for Spurs once more.

Defoe scored twice in the 3-1 victory over West Ham and the England international is Tottenham’s top scorer, having scored seven league goals so far. Liverpool will also have to be wary of , who remains unpopular with Reds fans after accusing of being a coward in July, following Liverpool’s goalless draw with Spurs in Baltimore. Bale suffered an injury scare after being fouled by Adam and the Welshman accused Adam of setting out to deliberately hurt him.


Adam, who signed for Stoke City on transfer deadline day, was sent-off when Liverpool visited White Hart Lane last season. Martin Skrtel was also dismissed as the Reds were beaten 4-0 and Tottenham have won three of their last four league meetings with Liverpool.

Liverpool’s last win at White Hart Lane came in May 2008, when goals from Andriy Voronin and Fernando Torres secured a 2-0 victory on the final day of the season. This time around, all eyes will be on as the Uruguayan looks to add to his 10 league goals. Such is Liverpool’s reliance on Suarez, their next top scorer after him is own goals.

Four points separate the Reds and Tottenham going into Wednesday’s game and with the benefit of home advantage, Spurs go into the match as favourites. However having gone more than two months since they last tasted defeat in the league, Liverpool will be cautiously optimistic of earning at least a point at the Lane.

    How awful was Allen tonight . Allen and Henderson the 2 most backwards players in the PL – no wonder we are so rubbish .

    Another excellent lesson in how NOT to manage a Football club by bulls@it brenda

    To all the Rodgers supporters out there , lets hear your excuses !
    Come on ,dont be shy , its all we usually hear on this site

    Rodgers has already given us his – 2 imaginary penalies and other hard luck stories , but of course it was ” another outstanding performance from the lads ” . I agree with above – he has a deserved nickname , it has to be – bullsh#t brendan

    Anyway ,excuses ? whats it going to be this week ? bad luck ? bad ref ? floodlights too bright ? brendan didnt have his lucky underpants ? has to be something , so lets hear it

      I’m a yank and have supported the Reds for years (and not the glory years) and up until the last 2 weeks, I supported BR because well…. I’m a fan… Threw thick and thin but enough is enough. This man is in way over his head. He continues to NOT stick with a starting 11 and he continues to play people who do not deserve a run (example, hendo, Allen). Why on earth he continues to sit shelvey until 20 minutes left angers me.

      I don’t think we should sack him unless we know who is coming in. If he were to resign…. I wouldn’t be upset. He clearly told FSG what they wanted to hear during the interview process. It is clear that he is a small team manager.

      As for FSG, I am from New Jersey so I know them & the red socks and for the last 8 years – they have pumped soo much money into the organization. Why they don’t do that with the Reds is mind boggling. I agree that they are doing a horrible job on the pitch but at the very least they are getting rid of debt so when they do sell – it will be attractive to potential buyers.

      Enrique should go back to the back line. Allen, hendo benched, shelvey starts, hopefully Lucas comes back soon and but huntelarr & ba.

      That is what I want for Christmas.

      As for the ” I hate yanks” …. Grow up. There are greedy people every where guy. You ignorant clown…

          Wow …. you have issues guy. This is a sports forum not a world issue forum so I suggest you go on BBC website or CNN.

          You are a joke but I wish you well.

          YNWA !!!! but in your case – you’ve been walking alone for quite some time

          Two points one for gary london,When i use the term
          evil i dont mean in a devil/god use of the word as
          i am a pagan,and my user name is a nod to another
          pagan and great humanitarian neil young,i along with most other decent members of the human race
          detest killing of innocent men women and children
          by any nation,or individuals and believe i have the right to freedom of speech,the second point is
          for “you heard” the name says it all really,sometimes political issues and sport do cross the divide mate,so when you say “wow” i find that very offensive, to mention people being
          murdered on a sports forum is not so wrong because
          if you are a true liverpool fc fan you should know
          better as 96 of our fans were murdered in 1989 in
          sheffield by police and have yet to face justice,so do you think thats a joke mate? and as for the BBC who have helped cover up what went on at sheffield or CNN that lies to the american public on a daily basis then my friend you truly
          deluded and have my sympathy,
