Tottenham handed James Maddison boost ahead of Liverpool clash
Both teams are riding high on excellent form, with both yet to face defeat in the Premier League this season. Liverpool’s journey began with a draw against Chelsea in their season opener, but since then, Jurgen Klopp’s men have showcased their resilience by clinching victory in five consecutive games.
Tottenham, on the other hand, opened their season with a draw against Brentford and then embarked on an impressive four-game winning streak, only to share the spoils in a scintillating North London derby against Arsenal, which ended 2-2.

The North London derby was a rollercoaster of emotions for Tottenham supporters. It was a game that saw the team come back from behind on two occasions, with none other than their skipper, Heung-min Son, leading the charge and netting both goals.
However, during the heat of battle, Maddison suffered a knock to his knee, sparking concerns among fans about his availability for the upcoming Liverpool clash. The initial moments after the injury were nerve-wracking.
According to Football. London, Tottenham’s medical staff diligently monitored Maddison’s physical condition. Subsequent scans have provided reassuring feedback, indicating that James Maddison is likely to be fit and ready to take on Liverpool this weekend.
As Tottenham gears up for this crucial encounter, they have the added advantage of a full week’s rest. Unlike Liverpool, who were in action midweek, Spurs were not involved in the League Cup fixtures after an early exit from the competition at the hands of Fulham.
