Liverpool will host Spurs at Anfield for the 36th Premier League match week 2021/22, Sunday (08/05/2022) at 12:15 midnight Indian time.

Liverpool is currently in second place in the standings with 82 points. The Reds are just 1 point behind Manchester City in the title race this season.

Liverpool themselves are euphoric following their success in advancing to the Champions League final this season. Jurgen Klopp's men qualified 5-2 on aggregate after beating Villarreal in the second leg of the Champions League semifinal with a score of 3-2 last Wednesday through goals from Fabinho, Luis Diaz, and Sadio Mane. With that result, Liverpool is now listed as unbeaten in 13 consecutive matches in all competitions (W11 D2 L0).

On the other hand, the Spurs are currently in the fifth position in the standings with a collection of 58 points. The Lillywhites are just 2 points behind Arsenal in the race for the Champions League zone.

Spurs themselves are looking at this match with high confidence. The reason is, that Antonio Conte's troops just won in their last game over Leicester City with a score of 3-1 through a Harry Kane goal and  Son Heung-Min's brace in the Premier League last week. The victory made the Spurs only swallow 1 defeat in their last 7 matches in all competitions (W5 D1 L1).

At the first meeting in the 18th match week of the English Premier League this season, Liverpool and Spurs played as strong as 2-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Spurs had taken the lead through Kane's goal in the 13th minute. Furthermore, Liverpool managed to reverse the position through goals from Diogo Jota in the 35th minute and Andrew Robertson in the 69th minute. However, Spurs were able to force a draw after Son scored in the 74th minute.
