Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will face each other in the Premier League today.

Micky Hazard has taken to social networking site Twitter to urge the Tottenham Hotspur players not to feel the pressure against Liverpool today.

The North London outfit are second in the league table at the moment with 61 points from 31 matches.

Spurs are five points behind leaders Leicester City and need to pick up all three points against Liverpool this evening in order to maintain the pressure on the Foxes.

Former Tottenham midfielder Hazard has urged Mauricio Pochettino’s side not to feel the pressure today.

Well-known sports presenter Richard Keys has backed Tottenham to win 2-1 against Liverpool.

Keys has also compared Spurs midfielder Dele Alli to Chelsea legend Frank Lampard, who plays for New York City FC at the moment.

“He’s been fantastic… Lampardesque,” the former Sky Sports presenter told Sport360.com about Alli. “I hope he’s got a mature head on his shoulders and he’ll need it now as he starts to get more and more attention.”

Keys added: “Spurs are better in every department, have got the bit between the teeth and Liverpool will be thinking about the Europa League. 1-2.”

Alli has scored seven goals and created 42 chances in 29 Premier League appearances for Tottenham so far this season.

The England international midfielder has a pass accuracy of 75% and a shot accuracy of 62%, and has won 35 headers, 26 dribbles and 46 tackles.
