Liverpool eye new club record against Tottenham, goals expected

Liverpool is aiming to extend their historic unbeaten streak against Tottenham when they face off tonight. The Reds are unbeaten in their last 10 league meetings with Spurs, winning seven and drawing three. If they avoid defeat, they will set a new club record of 11 games without defeat against the Londoners in the Premier League. Since their 0-0 draw at Tottenham in October 2015, Liverpool has scored in 14 successive league clashes with Spurs, finding the net in 20 of the last 21 league fixtures against them. However, seven of their last nine league wins against Spurs have been in tight contests, all decided by a one-goal margin.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah is looking to equal another all-time record. He could play his 300th game for Liverpool in all competitions and is three goals short of recording 30 in all competitions for the fourth season in seven with the Reds. Salah is also looking to become the club’s equal fifth all-time league goalscorer by joining Harry Chambers on 135 goals with his next league goal. He currently holds the Reds’ record for leading scorer against Spurs with eight goals in 12 appearances, including two earlier this season. The No. 11 has scored in each of his last six Anfield appearances in all competitions, and he needs three goals to reach 100 for Liverpool at Anfield in all games.

Liverpool forward Diogo Jota has yet to lose a match in which he has scored for the Reds in his 30 appearances. Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge of Liverpool was against Spurs in October 2015, where they drew 0-0 at White Hart Lane. Klopp has won 10 of his 17 games against Spurs in all competitions, with six draws and a single defeat.
