Tottenham vs Liverpool LIVE: Premier League team news, line-ups and more today

Jürgen Klopp gives update on Liverpool‘s Covid situation

Liverpool head to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday with the Reds in fantastic form and Spurs effectively coming in from the cold, after their last three matches have been postponed. Games against Rennes, Brighton and Leicester couldn’t be fulfilled by Antonio Conte’s team due to a Covid outbreak, so it remains to be seen how fit and battle-ready his squad is.

The Reds have had some Covid absences of their own to cope with, including Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho, but came through their last match against Newcastle with a routine victory all the same.

They remain in the Premier League title hunt after six straight victories, but this will be a bigger test than some of those recent encounters. Spurs are down in seventh and do have three league wins on the spin to their name, but the most recent of those was in the first week of December. Winning all their games in hand would put the north London side into the top four, so there’s plenty to play for.

Follow all the live updates and team news as Tottenham face Liverpool below, after the conclusion of Wolves vs Chelsea:

What do those 2pm kick off results do to the Premier League table? Not a whole lot if truth be told.

Manchester City have opened up a four point lead over Liverpool, six over Chelsea, and remain top of the table. Chelsea are comfortable in third with a six point lead over fourth placed Arsenal whilst Wolves have moved level on points with Tottenham but remain eighth in the table.

Newcastle slump to yet another heavy defeat and remain 19th in the table having played more games than all of their closest relegation rivals.

Full-time: Wolves 0 – 0 Chelsea

90+3 mins: Wolves will be happy with that! They’ve taken a point off Chelsea with a very good performance at home. Bruno Lage’s men were the better team in the first half-time but couldn’t get going in the second. Chelsea threw a lot at them but they held strong and kept the Blues out.

Thomas Tuchel won’t be happy. It’s another two points dropped by the Blues and they’re now six points behind the league leaders Manchester City. Is their title race over already?

Raheem Sterling has added a fourth for Manchester City against Newcastle. The hard work was done by Gabriel Jesus who brought the ball in from the left wing, shifted away from a defender and put it on a plate for Sterling to tap in from inside the six-yard box.
