Kevin Wimmer hopeful Tottenham can end wait for Anfield win this weekend against Liverpool

Anfield Pitch

Spurs have not won at the ground for several years.

Tottenham defender Kevin Wimmer has told the club's official website that he is hopeful that Mauricio Pochettino's men will be able to end their wait for a win at Anfield when they travel to face Liverpool on Saturday.

The Premier League title-chasers have not won at the Reds' home since Rafael van der Vaart and Luka Modric helped them to a 2-0 win in 2011. Since then, the Merseyside club have won three of the four meetings between the pair at the ground, including a 4-0 win in 2014.

However, with Spurs proving to be Leicester City's closest rivals for the title this term, while Liverpool find themselves down in ninth, Wimmer insisted that it is time to secure the coveted victory at the stadium.

"We know it's going to be very hard, it's never easy away at Liverpool, but we are a very good team this year and on a good day we can beat anybody so, for sure, we will try our best to get those three points," he told the club's official website.

"In the last few years, Tottenham haven't got too many points at Anfield so it's time to change that - it's certainly a good moment to go and get the three points there this weekend."

With Pochettino's side knowing that while they are definitely still in the title race, they cannot afford to slip up and lose further ground to Leicester, the biggest incentive going into the game is unlikely to be ending a poor run at a certain ground, but rather ensuring that they keep the pressure on the Foxes.

Nevertheless, putting such runs to bed could be quite important going forward, as the longer they have to wait for a victory at Anfield, the more the streak will become a psychological factor in any future game between the two clubs.
