Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.
The midweek English Premier League action reaches its climax on Thursday night as reigning champions Liverpool try their hand at turning around their fortunes as they go to Tottenham.
A rotten run of form, since winning 7-0 at Crystal Palace no less, has seen the Reds go five without victory, while also being bundled out of the FA Cup by arch-rivals Manchester United.
Jurgen Klopp has tried to keep his pecker up but will have been green around the gills as unfancied Burnley burgled a win at Anfield last time out.
It’s left the title holders six points adrift of top spot and bobbing around the choppy waters of European qualification going into the second half of the season.
Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez remain headline absentees for the Reds, with Jordan Henderson also needing to be assessed.
Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also won’t feature against the Londoners.
Tottenham are ticking along nicely, a point and a place below their esteemed visitors in fifth going into the midweek round of fixtures.
They picked off rock-bottom Sheffield United 3-1 at Bramall Lane in their last game to make it four unbeaten as Jose Mourinho warms to his task in north London.
Giovani Lo Celso continues his lengthy period troubling the Spurs medical team, while Matt Doherty is doubtful.
Dele Alli is also uncertain to play, partly through injury concern and partly because Mourinho might rather he didn’t.
