Tottenham fans react on Twitter to Caulker's Liverpool deal, ahead of clash with North London rivals

Tottenham fans are hoping old boy Steven Caulker can get one over on Arsenal if he makes his debut for Liverpool while on loan from QPR.

Steven Caulker is in line for an instant debut for Liverpool, 24 hours after clinching a surprise loan move.

The Reds have a defensive crisis due to injuries, which has prompted their decision to bring Caulker in from QPR until the end of the season.

Speaking on the club's website, Klopp described Caulker's arrival on loan as 'important' for the club, who have shown mixed form ever since his arrival as manager.

Caulker was once thought of as one of Tottenham's future stars, a potential replacement for Ledley King at the back. After impressing on loan at Swansea, he performed well enough for Spurs to earn an England call-up.

Then manager Andre Villas-Boas sanctioned his sale to Cardiff City, and the defender has struggled since, suffering consecutive relegations with the Bluebirds and later QPR.

Caulker hopes to make his debut against Arsenal on Wednesday evening, the option preferable than starting Jose Enrique at centre-back as they did against Exeter City in the FA Cup.

As a Tottenham old boy, Caulker would dearly love to get one over on Arsenal in the process of establishing himself as a Liverpool player.

Here is a look at what Spurs fans had to say about the 24-year-old clinching a move to Anfield...
