Bale, who played for North London outfit Spurs from 2007 to 2013 before joining Spanish giants Madrid, is expecting a competitive Premier League game at White Hart Lane.
"It’s never an easy game at the Lane for any (opposition) team," the Wales international told BT Sport. "It’s going to be a difficult game for both teams.
"I know that Tottenham always put up a fight against Liverpool, and a team with a new manager is never easy to predict."
Liverpool have a new manager in charge, Jurgen Klopp, and it is hard to see how the team will play this afternoon.
Playing at White Hart Lane will give Tottenham an advantage, but the Liverpool players will be keen on impressing Klopp in the Premier League encounter.
The opening 15 minutes of the game will be important. If the Merseyside outfit get the first goal, then they will have a much better chance of winning all three points.
However, if Tottenham make the breakthrough first and do so early in the match, then the Reds will probably have to return to Merseyside with nothing.
