Tottenham are back in form, after a dip in autumn and are unbeaten in the last five games. A victory against Liverpool will see level on points with the Reds, so Andre Villas-Boas will be desperate for full three points.
Luis Suarez has been given the captain’s armband in absence of Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard. For Spurs, Roberto Soldado starts while Capoue starts as well in the central-defence alongside Dawson.
