Spurs v Liverpool

Paul Merson reckons it will be an entertaining an draw at the Lane...

This is a big, big football match. Tottenham have had a mixed start under Mauricio Pochettino as they were lucky against West Ham but slaughtered QPR. If they win this then they will start believing. 

As for Liverpool, they looked comfortable against Man City for 30 minutes but were a bit toothless and didn't look like scoring for all their nice football from box to box. That's not the Liverpool I remember from last season when they looked like scoring every time they went forward. 

Mario Ballotelli is a top-drawer player and offers another body and hopefully the penny will drop with him at some point. If he plays to his best on the field then £16million won't look too bad - but the good games haven't outweighed the bad when I've watched him. 

They need some cutting edge because they can't afford to play another big team and lose again so early in the season.
