Liverpool looking for eighth straight league win as they host Spurs

Liverpool will be looking to extend their winning streak to eight Premier League games when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

The Reds moved to within a point of league leaders Chelsea with victory over Sunderland on Wednesday evening, and will return to the top of the league if they better the Blues’ result at Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

Brendan Rodgers once again has no fresh injury worries, with Jose Enrique the only absentee so he could well name the same side that started midweek.

Liverpool ran out 5-0 winners when the sides met at White Hart Lane back in December – a result that marked Andre Villas-Boas’ last game in charge of the North London outfit.

Top scorer Luis Suarez bagged a brace that day, and a goal here would see him surpass Robbie Fowler’s record of 28 goals in a Premier League season, which he equalled last weekend.

The Uruguay international also got on the score-sheet with the opener when these two sides last met at Anfield.

A Stewart Downing strike and a penalty from Steven Gerrard saw then Reds come from behind to secure victory for the hosts after a brace from Jan Vertonghen had given Spurs the lead.
