Tottenham (the head coach Mauricio Pochettino)
After an eleven-day pause the club season in top national leagues of the continent has renewed. And already in the first Saturday match of the 5th round of the English Premier League we have received the superfight of two participants of the forthcoming group stage of the Champions League.
The new fight between Tottenham and Liverpool will take place on the largest football arena of Great Britain Wembley Stadium and will be broadcasted on two hundred countries of the world. But, except the participation in the club championship of Europe, Mauricio Pochettino and Jürgen Klopp’s teams are taking, respectively, the 5th and the 1st places in the current champion race of the English season.
We will remind you that until recently, after three victories in a row over Newcastle (2:1), Fulham (3:1) and MU (3:0), the Spurs were included into the quartet of the leaders. However fiasco in the last guest match with Watford (2:1) has brought Mauricio Pochettino’s team on the 5th place. And now, prior to the 5th match day the lag of Tottenham from the first place that is taken by the grandee from Manchester is 3 points (9 against 12).
Liverpool (the head coach Jürgen Кlopp)
But the closest guests of Wembley are going without defeats so far. The Reds have won in four last rounds over West Ham, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester with the total score – 9:1. But, the main thing is that the main challenger of Liverpool in fight for a champion title – Manchester City- has absolutely unexpectedly lost two points to Wolverhampton (1:1). And this fact brings to fans of the grandee from Manchester additional, and at the same time, fantastic positive emotions.
In historical opposition of two top English clubs the guests of Wembley have considerable overweight. In 168 matches the Reds have won seventy seven victories and have suffered forty eight defeats. But in three last home matches, at the old stadium White Hart Lane, Tottenham has scored five points from nine possible (0:0, 1:1 and 4:1).
