Three consecutive victories in all competitions has things looking rosier around White Hart Lane. The team has found some consistency offensively, tallying multiple goals in five consecutive matches. Roberto Soldado and Lewis Holtby have began to show glimpses of a rare vein of form in recent matches. However, Jan Vertonghen's injury has certainly weakened the Spurs defense.
Today sees Spurs host Liverpool. The Reds sit in 5th place, just three points out of second place. Liverpool have been paced by their dynamic strike duo of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, who have combined for 24 league goals. The team is boosted by its dynamic midfielders like Gerrard, Coutinho, and Lucas. Its weakness may come in the back though, as defense has shown worrying signs throughout the season.
