Liverpool and Tottenham make up two of those clubs vying for European football as they prepare to lock horns on Merseyside on Sunday and the epic encounter provides the flawless backdrop for the race to finish as the league's top scorer, where the two pacesetters will also go head to head as Harry Kane and Mohamed Salah look to continue strutting their stuff.

There was good news on the injury front, with defenders Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld back in training.

"To us, this game is a classic".

But the balance regarding Son is actually most crucial with another player, Eriksen.

"The rubbing of hands isn't to keep warm!" "If nobody is injured or whatever, it's better for Adam that he can train for the next 10 days until the Southampton game and then he should be ready for sure".

Liverpool head into the game looking to get back to back victories after back to back defeats. "When you play one of the best teams in the world you have to put in your best performance".

Think you can do better than Lawro? We are backing Salah as our prediction in this game.

In 51 Premier League meetings, Liverpool have won 23, Spurs have won 14 and 14 have been drawn.

Tottenham haven't done the league double over Liverpool since 2010-11. For Liverpool to beat their close rivals, Salah will have to be on the top of his game. 19 leagues goals is a start, while a further six assists proves the Egypt worldwide has already justified his £34.3m summer fee from Roma a number of times over.

Harry Kane, who is a strike away from his 100th Premier League goal, has scored four goals while adding two assists in six contests with Liverpool.

Although Tottenham are not great travellers, they have won seven points in the last three games, after gaining only one point in the five games before that.

"Spurs showed against Manchester United that they are in good shape at the moment, and they have not lost since their defeat by Manchester City in December".

Sterling, himself hit by a bad tackle from Tottenham's Harry Kane in December, said: "I find it a bit unfair at times".
