English Premier League giants Tottenham and Liverpool will be putting their unbeaten streaks on the line when they square it out in what will be a competitive football match on Saturday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Tottenham took a point away from their draw against Arsenal in the past weekend's North London derby while Liverpool are just from overcoming Leicester 3-1 to advance to the next round of the EFL Carabao Cup. Ange Postecoglou achieved a feat that none of Antonio Conte, Jose Mourinho, or Nuno Espirito Santo managed during their ill-fated spells at the North London club by navigating Tottenham to a hard-earned point against Arsenal. The Gunners had twice taken the lead in the game with goals from Cristian Romero and Bukayo Saka but Tottenham was swift to reply through a brace by Son Heung Min who was twice assisted by Maddison. Spurs have now scored at least twice in every Premier League game under the management of Ange Postecoglou.
