Tottenham vs Liverpool, live! How to watch, live stream, TV, lineups, odds, prediction


Tottenham vs Liverpool: Tottenham hope to play their first game in 14 days when the Premier League title-chasing Reds visit the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday (Watch live at 11:30 am ET, on Peacock Premium).


Antonio Conte’s side was set to return from an 11-day shutdown on Thursday, but their clash with Leicester was eventually postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks currently depleting both squads. Tottenham (25 points, now with as many as three fewer games played) are not believed to have received anymore positive test results since having a third straight game postponed (two in Premier League, one in Europa League).

As for Liverpool (40 points), Jurgen Klopp’s men are in scintillating form with six straight victories and just the one point between themselves and Premier League leaders Manchester City. Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota are in unplayable form at the moment, with the Egyptian superstar tallying 15 goals and nine assists through 17 games and the Portuguese understudy chipping with nine and one of his own, including six in his last nine Premier League appearances.

Tottenham vs Liverpool live analysis! – By Joe Prince-Wright

FULL TIME: What. A. Game. Incredible 90 minutes. Goals. Red card. Controversy. Momentum swings. Great saves. This game had it all. Tottenham 2-2 Liverpool.

CHANCE! Ben Davies is through but chooses to pass rather than shoot. He was offside, but a corner is given. Nothing comes of it.

10 minutes to go. Chaos.

RED CARD! After a hefty challenge from Robertson on Emerson Royal, the Scotsman is booked. However, VAR is used and referee Paul Tierney goes to the monitor. He upgrades the card to a red. Robertson is off. Liverpool down to 10 men with 10 minutes plus lengthy stoppage time to go. What. A. Game.

GOALLLL! Son equalizes right away. 2-2. What a ball from Harry Winks. Alisson gets it wrong and Son finishes into an empty net.

WILDDDD + GOALLL! Dele Alli goes down in the box at one end, but no penalty is given. Then at the other end Liverpool take the lead. Salah’s header is pushed out by Lloris. The ball looked to have hit Salah’s hand. Alexander-Arnold whips in a ball and Robertson heads home at the back post. VAR is used. Goal stands. Liverpool lead 2-1.

25 minutes to go. Liverpool starting to dominate possession. Can Tottenham hold on for what would be a very good point?

Roberto Firmino is on for Liverpool, as he replaces Tyler Morton. The youngster has done okay and held his own in midfield. Not an easy game to come in to.

SAVE! Tottenham should be 2-1 up! One ball over the top takes out the entire Liverpool defense. Dele Alli tees up Kane, but the ball is just behind him and Alisson saves. The ball is then cleared for a corner and Kane flicks a header over. Tottenham have to take these chances.

Second half is underway! Spurs have started brightly with Son and Kane linking up well. Tottenham so sharp.

Moments later Diogo Jota goes down in the box under pressure from Emerson Royal. That looked like a foul. VAR checks it but no penalty is given.

GOALLL! It is level. Diogo Jota heads home a cross from Andy Robertson. Lovely finish from Jota. After all of those chances for Spurs, Liverpool pounce to equalize. 1-1. What a game!

SAVE! Dele Alli misses a glorious chance, but Alisson got a fingertip on that. Son races free and finds Dele Alli but his shot is probably just going wide, but Alisson tipped it wide. What a chance for Dele Alli, who looks absolutely gutted that didn’t go in.

Harry Kane is booked and that is a nasty foul on Andy Robertson. Kane goes over the top as he slides in and catches Robertson on the top of his foot. Kane maybe lucky to not get a red card… Moments later Liverpool youngster Tyler Morton is booked for a foul. Spicy.

CLOSE! Tottenham should be 2-0 up. Kane breaks free and sets up Son, but his shot bounces wide and a huge chances is missed by Spurs. Kane is flying around and Tottenham are so direct. Son is played in soon after but Alisson denies him. Son was offside anyway.

GOALLLLL! Tottenham take the lead. Lovely pass from Ndombele and Kane slots home across goal. Just his second PL goal of the season (23rd in all competitions for club and country) and Tottenham’s fans go wild. Tottenham 1-0 Liverpool.

CHANCE! Harry Kane has a shot blocked by Konate. Spurs are flying forward. What a great start to the game. End-to-end!

SAVE! After some good play by Spurs, Trent Alexander-Arnold smashes a shot with his left foot that Hugo Lloris pushes wide. Liverpool look sharp.

Tottenham have settled down a little after that fast start by Liverpool. Ryan Sessegnon is getting a bit of joy down Spurs’ left. Dele Alli is floating around to try and link midfield and attack.

CHANCE! We are off and right away Liverpool almost take the lead. Alexander-Arnold clips in a delightful ball towards Robertson and he heads just wide. Huge chance for Liverpool inside the first 90 seconds of the game.

The fog is thick in north London and this is a massive challenge for Antonio Conte’s Tottenham, as they face Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp is without several key players due to COVID-19, while Spurs are almost back to full-strength after not playing a single game over the last two weeks due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

Erling Haaland injury: Manchester City assess star


Manchester City star Erling Haaland left the Norway squad during the international break after suffering a groin injury.

[ MORE: How to watch Premier League in USA ]

Haaland, 22, joined up with Norway for their EURO 2024 qualifiers but has been sent back to Manchester City for treatment.

The Norwegian striker has been in stunning form in recent weeks, scoring nine goals in his last three games in all competitions for City (including five against RB Leipzig in the Champions League and a hat trick against Burnley in the FA Cup) before the break.

He has scored 42 (yes, forty two) goals in all competitions for Man City this season.

However, Pep Guardiola and Man City now face an anxious wait as an injury to Erling Haaland is the last thing they wanted before a pivotal final few months of the season as they chase the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League treble.

What is the latest update?

Norway’s team doctor, Ola Sand, gave an update on Haaland’s injury.

“We hoped that this was just a familiarity that would carry over to Saturday, but after doing tests and examinations yesterday it became clear that he will not make it to the games against Spain and Georgia,” Sand said. “It is better that he receives medical follow-up at the club.”

Norway face Spain on Saturday and Georgia next Tuesday, so it seems like Haaland is in a race to be fit for Man City’s games after the international break.

Which games could he miss?

After the international break Man City are playing in the first game of the weekend as they host Liverpool on Saturday, Apr. 1 at the Etihad Stadium.

It seems like Haaland could be struggling to be fully fit for that game, and maybe even the trip to Southampton on Apr. 8, so Pep Guardiola may choose to rest him for their massive UEFA Champions League quarterfinal first leg against Bayern Munich on Apr. 11.

Given the form Haaland is in right now, it will be a blow for City if he does miss the next few games but the last thing they want is any long-term damage. Plus, it’s helpful to have the likes of World Cup winner Julian Alvarez in reserve to step in for Haaland.

Club legends and captains

After captaining them to FA Cup glory and being the main man in recent years, goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel left Leicester in 2022 and is now starring for Nice in France.

Right back Danny Simpson, center backs Robert Huth and Wes Morgan and left back Christian Fuchs have all retired with the latter playing for Charlotte FC in MLS in 2022.

Morgan lifting the Premier League trophy alongside beloved manager Claudio Ranieri, who is still coaching in Italy in Serie B with Cagliari, is an image that is in sporting folklore.

Superstars move on to even more glory

In midfield, N’Golo Kante has gone on to win the Premier League again and Champions League, among other trophies, with Chelsea. Internationally – he started every game for France as they won the World Cup in 2018.

His midfield partner at Leicester – Danny Drinkwater – also joined Chelsea, but is currently without a club after loan moves across the Premier League, Turkey and the Championship.

Winger Riyad Mahrez is a star at Manchester City, winning three more Premier League titles, while on the other wing, Marc Albrighton left Leicester on loan in January 2023 for West Bromwich Albion in the Championship but is still contracted to the club.

Veterans still plugging away and one continues to party…

Striker Shinji Okazaki is playing in Belgium for Sint-Truiden, while fellow forward Leonardo Ulloa retired after spells in Mexico and Spain.

Meanwhile – veteran striker Jamie Vardy is of course still at Leicester, and will forever go down as a club legend.

He played a key part in their FA Cup triumph and recent European exploits, and won the Premier League Golden Boot award three years ago. He never misses a party.

As for the other key contributors off the bench, Demarai Gray is at Everton, Jeffrey Schlupp is at Crystal Palace, Ben Chilwell is at Chelsea and is England’s second-choice left back, Richie de Laet is still playing at Royal Antwerp, Andy King is at Bristol City and Nathan Dyer has retired.

Wherever they are now, this group of players will always be known as the team who pulled off one of the greatest upsets the sporting world has ever seen.

Manchester City vs Liverpool: How to watch live, stream link, team news


Manchester City host Liverpool in a huge game for both teams as they battle for the title and a top four finish respectively.


Pep Guardiola’s Man City can momentarily cut the gap to leaders Arsenal to five points but there are question marks swirling around the fitness of goalscoring machine Erling Haaland heading into this game. City are looking for a three-peat of Premier League titles and five in the last six seasons, but Arsenal don’t look like they’re going to slip up anytime soon. So City can’t afford to either. They’ve won six in a row in all competitions, scoring 23 and conceding once in that run. We all know they love to kick on at this point of the campaign, so let’s see if they can do it again.

As for Liverpool, well, it has been one step forward and one step back pretty much all season long for Jurgen Klopp’s side. After their 7-0 shellacking of Manchester United, they then lost at Bournemouth to infuriate Klopp and their fans further. The front three of Salah, Nunez and Gakpo are all clicking through the gears nicely but Liverpool have to become more consistent and dominant games in midfield if they’re going to close the gap to the current top four. They’ve had success against City in recent years as their contrasting style of play match up well but this seems like a different, more fragile, Liverpool this season.

Key storylines & in-form players to watch

The fitness of Haaland is obviously a huge concern for City as he suffered a groin issue and did not play for Norway over the international break and returned to Manchester for treatment. If he isn’t fit to start then expect Julian Alvarez to come in. Elsewhere, City are flying with Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez and Ilkay Gunodgan having a big role to play with Phil Foden out following his Appendectomy. As always, Kevin de Bruyne is the main man and will relish this chance to cut Arsenal’s lead atop the table.

Liverpool just can’t find consistency right now. They have improved defensively but they are a real Jekyll and Hyde team. Jurgen Klopp isn’t a fan of that and showed his frustration after their defeat at Bournemouth, which was their last Premier League game and was way back on March 11. He’s had a few weeks to stew over that loss and it will be intriguing to see what plan he has come up with. For this game as earlier this season Liverpool beat Man City 1-0 at Anfield by playing a front four which pinned City in.

Chelsea vs Aston Villa: How to watch live, stream link, team news


Chelsea and Aston Villa clash at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and a win for the visitors will move them above Chelsea in the table.


Graham Potter’s Chelsea were pinned back before the international break as they drew 2-2 at home against Everton after leading twice. However, they are unbeaten in their last five games in all competitions and have reached the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. Things are looking a bit better for the Blues in their 3-4-3 formation and the pressure has eased on Potter slightly as players continue to return from injury. A win against Villa this weekend will keep their slim hopes of a top four finish alive but a top six finish is probably as good as it will get for them this season.

Unai Emery has done a phenomenal job at Villa with the Spanish coach leading them from a relegation scrap to a quest for European qualification within just a few months. Villa are resolute defensively and have a clear playing style as they love to catch opponents out on the counter and they did that brilliantly in their 3-0 win against Bournemouth last time out. With three wins in their last four, can Villa continue their surge and push for a top six finish?

Key storylines & in-form players to watch

Chelsea have so many players stepping up in recent weeks but Joao Felix and Kai Havertz have really got going in attack. The duo are scoring goals, creating chances and Chelsea look much more confident when they get into the final third. Enzo Fernandez and Benoit Badiashile have both slotted in seamlessly following their January moves. Yes, Chelsea are still a long way back when it comes to the top four but they are they kind of team who can go on a long unbeaten run and they certainly have so many options with a massive squad of players all pushing to start in this new fluid 3-4-3 system.

Villa’s recent success has been built on solid defense and Emiliano Martinez in goal and Tyrone Mings at center back have been back to their best. Ollie Watkins leading the line always causes problems and midfield creators and wingers always seem to be ready to counter and cause a surprise. Emery has done a remarkable job at Villa and it will be a lot of fun to see how close they can get to a top six finish this season.
