Liverpool League Form: W-W-W-W-W
There is not much to talk about the form of this team, yet there is so much to talk about. Liverpool has been the one team who have been proving themselves and getting better with every match they play. Even though they are placed first in the league, they play like nothing is for granted.
Gaffer, Jurgen Klopp has been outstanding in managing and understand every strength and weakness of his players. With many great players in the team and each playing to their potential, Liverpool is difficult to compete with. The form of this team can be seen with the results at the end of every game.
In the last 5 games they have played, they are undefeated at home and away. They are also placed second in the Champions League table and are doing wonders there as well. Liverpool has had some massive wins which has resulted in their outstanding goal difference.
By beating Leicester City by 4 goals and Everton by 5, the team has been ruthless in their recent matches. There isn’t just one forward, one midfielder or one defender playing his best, each and everyone is contributing to the wins. Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino are just some of those names.
Among the players we just mentioned, Liverpool is home for many other superstars. Fabinho has performed well in midfield. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has had his moments of glory in the midfield as well.
Takumi Minamino is a promising young Japanese forward signed recently by Liverpool. We can only imagine what his contribution would be with regard to pace and skill in the book of plays by Jurgen Klopp.
Tottenham Hotspurs League Form: L-D-W-L-W
Tottenham has been facing the same issue which most Premier League teams have been bogged down with, consistency. In the past 5 matches they have played in the league, they have only won twice.
After defeating Burnley F.C. by 5 goals, Tottenham were won against the Wolverhampton Wolves. Soon after, they lost to Chelsea by 2 goals. Their only wins were against the Wolves and Brighton. Southampton, who are placed 12th in the league defeated them by a goal and then the team drew against Norwich City. Norwich city are placed last in the league.
Jose Mourinho had gotten a grip on the team and his players when he first came on as manager. However, it is safe to say that whatever he wins he had on his plate, it has been overshadowed by the inconsistency of the team.
The team has also been riddled with managerial problems which concerns their transfer targets. The Hotspurs have reportedly been looking at short-term loans to rescue them from the crisis surrounding injuries of midfielders. The club recently lost the bid for Lyon’s fabled forward, Dembele to Chelsea.
Tottenham has an array of wonderful players who are a delight to watch. However, with a recent bout of injuries hitting their midfielders, the team’s performance has become mediocre.
Even though there were able to secure a few wins, the team’s future seems bleak if they do not get their transfer targets. Superstar forward, Harry Kane has been injured along with Mousa Sissoko. Hugo Lloris, the team captain also sustained an elbow injury against Brighton.
