HARRY KANE was the scourge of the world champions last week – today he’s aiming his shooting boots at just one man from Germany.
The Spurs star kickstarted England’s fightback to win from 2-0 down last week and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will have taken note.
Kane wasn’t the only White Hart Lane ace to shine in Berlin and the likes of Danny Rose, Dele Alli and matchwinner Eric Dier will be out to keep impressing Roy Hodgson.
Spurs head to Anfield five points behind leaders Leicester who are at home to Southampton tomorrow.
It’s not a must-win match but victory would give Claudio Ranieri something more than pizza to think about.
The stats are against the Londoners who have notched just six Anfield victories in 71 attempts but this season boast the second best away record in the Premier League and face a side whose top-four hopes are fading fast.
Man City haven’t given up hope of catching the Foxes but it will be all over today if they lose at Bournemouth.
I read an interesting stat that revealed Eddie Howe’s promoted side have collected just two points fewer than City if you wipe out the first five games – at that point Manuel Pellegrini’s side had a 100 per cent record.
How times have changed. City haven’t scored in their last three matches and will be minus key men such as Joe Hart, Vincent Kompany, Raheem Sterling and Kevin de Bruyne. Sergio Aguero could be fatigued after playing for Argentina in World Cup qualifiers and City could have one eye on PSG in the Champions League in midweek.
Biggest game of the day could be Norwich v Newcastle which is a proverbial six-pointer. Newcastle have lost their last eight on the road but have tightened up under Rafa Benitez.
Norwich have kept successive clean sheets against West Brom and Man City and I don’t see them losing but a draw at 9-4 with Coral seems the most likely outcome.
Chelsea should beat Aston Villa in the early kick-off and in the Championship there should be more misery for Bolton when Reading visit.
