Is this the big Spurs weakness Liverpool should exploit at Anfield?

Tuesday night's Premier League clash promises big things...

Watching Tottenham Hotspur's wins over Chelsea and Arsenal this season, it would be difficult to single out a weakness.

The first plus for Liverpool ahead of their Premier League clash with the north London side on Tuesday night is that it comes at Anfield, meaning Spurs won't be egged on by a passionate, vociferous home crowd.

But Tottenham's immense fitness levels and seemingly endless high pressing will remain on Merseyside.

So how do Liverpool get round them?

The answer lies in the first goals Chelsea and Arsenal scored against Spurs during their respective defeats.

Both goals came at the expense of Danny Rose but Tottenham's biggest weakness isn't specific to him. It is, however, specific to their full-backs out wide.

Both Kyle Walker and Rose - the latter in particular - have been fantastic going forward of late. Both deserve praise for their forward surges and no one entered the final third more for Tottenham against Arsenal than their 24-year-old left-back.

And that's exactly why they are easily exposed at the back, left wanting on a regular basis. Ben Davies, too, can get caught out, while Walker's north London derby display came up against a rather non-threatening Mesut Ozil (aside from his goal).

Since Liverpool moved to a system revolving around three central defenders, meanwhile, their wing-backs have been given license to roam.

Alberto Moreno is a huge threat down the left - he showed as much with a Gareth Bale-esque goal at White Hart Lane earlier this season - while either Jordon Ibe or Lazar Markovic can cause Rose huge problems down the right.

It will be they who hold Liverpool's key to taming Mauricio Pochettino's red-hot Spurs.
