Tottenham vs Liverpool LIVE: Latest score as Roberto Firmino doubles the lead as Spurs suffer at Wembley

Tottenham will look to bounce back from their defeat against Watford when they take on an in-form Liverpool side at Wembley Stadium.

The meeting of two of the most attacking sides in the league promises to be an eye-catching affair and kicks off a busy day of Premier League football, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City also due to play later this afternoon. But revenge will be on the cards for Liverpool in the early kick-off, with memories of their harrowing defeat at Wembley last season still fresh in their mind.

The Reds are at least still boasting a 100 per cent record, whereas Spurs are looking to get back to winning ways, yet the home side will have to do so without captain Hugo Lloris and midfielder Dele Alli due to injury. Liverpool meanwhile are able to boast a near-full strength squad, although Adam Lallana misses out due to a groin strain.

Despite encouraging signs from their comprehensive victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford in August, Spurs slumped to a 2-1 loss to Watford at Vicarage Road, raising questions over their title-winning credentials.

In contrast, their opponents Liverpool have had a perfect start to the season winning their opening first four games for the first time ever in the Premier League era scoring nine goals in the process and conceding just once.

It’s a big game for…

Alisson: After his howler against Leicester in Liverpool’s last Premier League fixture, Alisson will look to put in a strong showing against a tough Spurs side to prove that he is capable to cut in the Premier League.

Best stat

7: Harry Kane has had a hand in seven goals in seven Premier League appearances against Liverpool (five goals, two assists).  

Remember when…

Victor Wanyama scored a screamer for Tottenham to equalise in their last fixture at Anfield. The game ended 2-2 with two goals in added-time, including a last minute penalty from Harry Kane.

Player to watch

Sadio Mane: Hitting four in his first four Premier League games this season, Mane is a man out to prove a point. Despite an unsurprising focus on the form of Mohamed Salah going into the new campaign, the Senegalese international has been the man Liverpool have looked to this season thus far, having been the most potent of the Reds’ deadly front three.
