The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Jose Mourinho, will want to end Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the Premier League on Saturday.
The clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool will be the first match between Jurgen Klopp and Mourinho since Manchester United sacked the Portuguese.
Mourinho is expected to play defensive tactics against the Reds when they clash on Saturday.
Former Liverpool striker, John Aldridge, in a column for the city’s Echo newspaper wrote, “The way Spurs used to play under Mauricio Pochettino, you would have expected them to come out and have a go at us but I can’t see that happening under Jose Mourinho”.
“I am sure they will try to soak up pressure and hit us on the break with Lucas Moura, Son (Heung-Min) and Dele Alli.”
“They will allow us to have possession and try to break them down, no doubt that is how Mourinho will play because I think he is very intimidated by Liverpool.”
Tottenham could be out to revenge due to their defeat to Liverpool in the Champions League final last year.
Mourinho has won twice against Klopp in their ten previous games against each other. Tottenham will be seeking for a win without injured captain Harry Kane.
Former Tottenham manager, Harry Redknapp, believes the match will be a tight one between the English Premier League sides.
“I can’t see any other result but Liverpool winning the title, but Tottenham away will be a tough game, make no mistake about that,” he told Sky Sports.
“They’ll want to break that Liverpool unbeaten run and it will be a tight game for sure you wouldn’t write Tottenham off, they’ve got outstanding players in the team.”
