Liverpool will have a chance to move provisionally into first place in the Premier League when they host Tottenham on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s team, fresh off advancing to the UEFA Champions League final, enter this match as the favorite and trail leaders Manchester City by a point. A victory will put all the pressure on City for Sunday’s game against Newcastle, with Pep Guardiola’s team reeling from the shock UCL elimination at the hands of Real Madrid.
Meanwhile, Spurs are two points behind Arsenal for fourth and would be well served to steal something from a match that they aren’t expected to keep all that close.
