The result of Liverpool vs Tottenham could have HUGE effects on the remaining season, as Liverpool will drop to 6th if they lost(likely anyway, given the easy-ish match of MUFC). They have also dropped out of both cups in rather embarrassing way during recent weeks.
Meaning they need to start winning matches to have any chance of top4 finish(UCL qualification), even UEL qualification at this point looks like it’s not in the bag yet. Spurs on the other hand need to win to keep at the pace of Chelsea, who’s likely going to win vs Burnley.
There are actually only few teams that are on MORE barren run of form that Liverpool, Pool’s form of last 5 matches is: 3 draws and 2 losses. Only Middlesbrough, Bournemouth and Leicester have worse 5match form at this point. Middlesbrough has identical stats, Bournemouth has 3 losses and 2 draws, Leicester(the current premier league champions…) are on a run of 4 losses and 1 draw. Leicester has 1 point out of maximum 15! Liverpool has 3 points out of maximum of 15, which looks pretty awful when you think about it. And throw in he fact that within two weeks they dropped out of FA Cup and League Cup as well.
