The final midweek Premier League comes to a conclusion with BT Sport showing live coverage of a match that was arguably billed seen as a title swinger at the start of the season.

Both now see themselves outside the top four following indifferent form in the league, although Spurs have a few games in hand of the teams above them and could leapfrog Liverpool and West Ham up to fourth spot with a victory.

The wheels well and truly came off for Liverpool following their 7-0 obliteration of Crystal Palace and have been winless in the last five fixtures.  Their shock defeat at home to Burnley last week ruined an unblemished record at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp will be expecting a bounce-back against Spurs.

Spurs have also lost the winning touch, drawing far too many in recent weeks and unfortunately living up to their all too often name of falling under the pressure when chasing silverware.

Tottenham v Liverpool - Our prediction

Both sides are desperate for a win so this should be a tasty encounter and should encourage free-flowing, attacking football.  Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min will be looking to click upfront for Spurs but are also looking for Gareth Bale to finally show what he is made of since his return.

Liverpool aren't short of creating chances, but their lack of simply putting the ball in the back of the net has been their biggest problem of late.  However, their trip to Man Utd (despite losing) saw Mohammad Salah break his goal drought which he will be hoping to carry on into this game.

There might be a temptation for Mourinho to "park the bus" if Liverpool go all out attack, but they need more than a point at this stage and will look to counter attack whenever possible.
