Spurs registered a late-minute 3-2 victory over Bournemouth in their last Premier League game on October 29. Liverpool, on the other hand, were defeated by Leeds United 2-1 in their last league game on October 29.

However, both teams are among the Premier League’s big six teams and this would make the encounter an interesting one to watch.

Darwin Nunez (Liverpool)

The Uruguayan joined Liverpool on a deal that could rise up to £85 million in total in the coming years and his recent resurgence in attack has been significant.

Lloris has kept four clean sheets in 13 Premier League appearances so far. Furthermore, he’s the goalkeeper with the third joint highest number of clean sheets in the league this season.

The 35-year-old was named the Player of the Match in Tottenham Hotspur’s 2-1 win over Marseille on November 1. His mastery in goal will be needed to curtail the attacking threat of Liverpool in this encounter.

Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)

The Egyptian is arguably the best performing Liverpool player despite their inconsistency in the league this campaign.

Salah has netted four goals and has registered three assists in 12 Premier League appearances for the Reds this season.

The 31-year old goal in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Napoli on November 1 remains a big boost for him going into this game and he is a key player in attack for Jurgen Klopp in this encounter.

Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur)

The Englishman is arguably one of the most in-form strikers in the league this season and his vision in attack has been exceptional.

Kane has netted 10 goals and has registered one assist in 13 league appearances for Tottenham Hotspur this season.
