Today could be the day that Spurs’ title challenge ends. Again. For like the third time already this year. Or it could be just your average day where everyone laughs at Seventhpool for being generally terrible. I’m hoping for the latter, but it could just as easily go the other way with Liverpool on a good run of form, having knocked both Manchester clubs out of cup competitions in recent weeks.
Luis Suarez returns for Liverpool, though he starts the game on the bench. Spurs are hit with a mini injury crisis at the moment with Kaboul, Sandro, Lennon, and Defoe all unavailable. Harry Redknapp also misses the match because his flight to Liverpool got canceled. Probably because some scouser stole the hubcaps off the plane.
