To be played on Tuesday 10th February 2015 at 20:00. Venue: Anfield, Liverpool

Odds: Liverpool 10/11, Draw 11/4, Tottenham 3/1

Liverpool welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield on Tuesday for what is a vital Premier League match for both sides.

Spurs will want to prove their 2-1 North London derby win was a sign of things to come rather than a flash-in-the-pan, and what better way to do that than by taking three points from the Reds in their own backyard?

As for Liverpool, they dropped two points against Everton on Saturday and will not want to fall further behind in the race for a European place.

Liverpool are unbeaten in eight league games while Spurs have lost just one of their last 12, meaning a draw could be the most likely result here.

But managers Brendan Rodgers and Mauricio Pochettino will know what a victory could do for their team’s confidence going into the final few months of the season, so expect an entertaining encounter.
