With the Premier League title and top-four hopes gone for Liverpool and Tottenham respectively, two slumping teams facing a hugely important summer transfer window will meet for the first time at Anfield on Sunday.

WATCH LIVERPOOL vs TOTTENHAM LIVE

Rewind less than a month to April 5. The Reds were at the top of the table as Jurgen Klopp chased the treble in his final season at Liverpool and it felt like all the stars were aligning for a dream farewell. It was the 2-2 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford that started the downward spiral that was to follow: just one win in their last five in the PL (1W-2D-2L) and a 3-0 home defeat that saw them drop out of the Europa League. Sunday is Klopp’s penultimate match at Anfield, with Liverpool hosting Wolves on the final day of the season.

The end-of-season slump has hit Spurs even more sharply, with Ange Postecoglou’s side suffering a third straight defeat on Thursday, now facing a quick turnaround in a bid to bounce back this weekend against Liverpool. Tottenham have struggled defensively for most of the season, with just two clean sheets in their last 25 games in the PL, dating back to the end of October. There will be goals.
