Liverpool vs. Tottenham Hotspur: Preview and TV schedule

Paul Gilham

Liverpool pick up their title push at home to stuttering Spurs on Sunday.

Liveprool continue to defy the odds to stay in the Premier League title race, with Brendan Rodgers' side having now notched up seven league wins on the bounce. Currently just a point adrift of provisional league leaders Chelsea -- albeit with third-placed Manchester City having a couple of games in hand -- the Reds are very much in the hunt.

Tottenham Hotspur will look to halt their charge at Anfield on Sunday, though Tim Sherwood's side have hardly been impressive recently. They head into this game sixth in the league, having dramatically squeezed past Southampton last weekend on the back of defeats to Chelsea and Arsenal. They are certainly underdogs here.

That is emphasised by Liverpool's lack of early injury concerns; only Sebastián Coates and José Enrique will miss this one. Sherwood, meanwhile, will be unable to select a host of first-teamers, though Emmanuel Adebayor could recover from a heel injury in time to be involved.
