Liverpool welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield this weekend as the race to finish in the European places hots up.
It’s unlikely that either the Reds or Spurs will have enough left in the tank to chase down Manchester United and Newcastle United in order to reach the top four, but both will be keen to play on the continent next season in either the Europa League or Europa Conference League.
Jurgen Klopp’s men return to Merseyside having narrowly beaten West Ham on Wednesday, while Ryan Mason’s side restored some pride with a well-earned comeback draw against Man Utd a day later.

Jurgen Klopp was able to provide some promising injury updates at his press conference on Friday.
Ibrahima Konate should be fit in time to face Spurs, as should Diogo Jota after picking up a knock in the West Ham win.
Naby Keita returned to training this week but is unlikely to be risked. Roberto Firmino and Stefan Bajcetic remain out.

Mason revealed on Friday that Hugo Lloris is still out with a hip problem, so Fraser Forster will continue in goal for Spurs.
Yves Bissouma, Ryan Sessegnon, Emerson Royal and Rodrigo Bentancur remain on the treatment table for now.

Tottenham showed against Man Utd that there is still life in them yet – Klopp went on to call them the best counter-attacking team in Europe. Calm down, Jurgen lad.
But there’s a difference between getting at the Red Devils on home turf and getting something from a trip to Anfield, a notoriously unhappy hunting ground for Spurs.
Liverpool should win, but it is unlikely to be as wide a margin of victory as Newcastle enjoyed last Sunday.
Prediction: Liverpool 3-1 Tottenham
