Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur – Premier League football Latest Update


In the Premier League, Liverpool takes on Tottenham Hotspur, both teams hoping to end the 2023–24 campaign with a bang.
At Anfield, kickoff is at 15:30 GMT.
With three games remaining, Liverpool, in third place, has almost abandoned the title battle and is now eight points behind leaders Arsenal.

The Reds will want to deliver a victory at home for their supporters and departing boss Jurgen Klopp.
Spurs trail fourth-place Aston Villa by seven points, who hold the fourth and final UEFA Champions League qualifying slot.

Liverpool reportedly expects Salah to stay.
Salah is reportedly expected by Liverpool to at least finish the last year of his contract at Anfield.

Despite his outburst against Klopp, Salah, 31, has not indicated that he wants to go, according to Sky Sports and The Athletic, and Liverpool does not want to sell.

Liverpool reportedly turned down a $188 million deal from Al Ittihad at the start of the season, among other approaches from the Saudi Pro League.

Salah has scored 24 goals so far this season, but since suffering an injury during the Africa Cup of Nations in January, his play has declined.

His three-year contract, signed in 2022, is worth an estimated 18 million pounds ($22.6 million) annually. He has approximately a year left on it.

Ange Postecoglou, the manager of Tottenham Hotspurs, acknowledges that his side still has a lot of work ahead of them if they hope to contend seriously for the championship, but he also thinks the group can grow from their current suffering.

The Spurs, who started the league this season as early leaders, haven’t won a major trophy since winning the League Cup in 2008, and it has been over 60 years since they were named English champions.

Postecoglou stated on Friday, “We’re a long way off, but it doesn’t mean we can’t challenge next year.”

“Every year I’m here, I’m not discounting the fact that we have to be competitive and strive for success.”

Postecoglou expressed his hope that his team would channel their pain from losing to rivals Arsenal and Chelsea in the derby in London.

He remarked, “The big games will always be big games and you need to feel the pain, but understand that when you’re representing this football club, that kind of intensity will always be there.”

Nobody has, in my opinion, shied away from it, and I don’t believe this is due to a lack of motivation or effort.

“However, it’s confronting and challenging if you’ve never been in that situation before, and it’s how you navigate that.”

The incident between Liverpool manager Klopp and forward Mohamed Salah has been “completely resolved,” he said.

Klopp argued that their relationship would not suffer long-term consequences because of their lengthy history together.
Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa will compete for the final Champions League slot, while Liverpool, having fallen behind the top two, will try to hold onto third place.
