Spurs can climb to third in the Premier League table should they manage a win at Anfield on Tuesday evening.
Harry Kane was the man-of-the-moment at the weekend in the North London derby with Arsenal, scoring for Spurs to bring the scores level following an early Mesut Ozil goal for the Gunners and then adding to that with a second-half strike to clinch the points for Spurs.
He will be eager to add to his season tally by adding his name to the goal sheet at Anfield in the BT Sport televised match on Tuesday evening.
The Gunners will be hopeful of bouncing back from that defeat with a win at home to bottom-of-the-table Leicester City. With speculation surrounding the future of the Foxes manager Nigel Pearson, Arsenal will be confident of a win against the Premier League strugglers.
We share their optimism. Leicester have won just four of their 24 league games so far this term and they will struggle against a Gunners side which will have ambitions of climbing back into the top four.
Our prediction: Arsenal 2 Leicester City 0
Hull City came close to causing the shock of the weekend, a David Meyler strike in the first half against Manchester City looking like the winning goal for the Tigers before James Milner levelled the scores at the Etihad in injury time.
If they can force Manchester City to share the points at the Etihad, then surely the Tigers can claim the points against a Villa side who have managed just twelve league goals this season so far, can’t they?
We’re not so sure. Hull haven’t been the most prolific scorers in the Premier League either and this match has goal-less draw written all over it. We certainly don’t expect a goal-fest.
Our prediction: Hull City 0 Aston Villa 0
Sunderland managed a point from their away trip to Swansea City at the weekend and they should find little difficulty in overcoming a QPR side struggling near the foot of the table. The Black Cats are now undefeated in their last four outings and look backable for a win-to-nil against a Rangers side which has managed just four goals in all competitions since Christmas.
Our prediction: Sunderland 1 QPR 0
Liverpool were forced to settle for a share of the spoils in the Merseyside derby last weekend and could be undone at home by a Kane-inspired Spurs side who will have ambitions of climbing into the top three tomorrow evening.
Pochettino’s side dominated against Arsenal on Saturday afternoon, clinching their third successive Premier League win following victories over West Brom and Sunderland. They will be in high spirits coming into this match and look set to end Liverpool’s eight match unbeaten run in the top flight tomorrow evening.
Our predictions: Liverpool 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2
Hull City vs Aston Villa
Sunderland vs QPR
