White Hart Lane was one of the toughest grounds to visit during the 2016/17 Premier League season. In fact, Tottenham Hotspur actually amassed a better home record than champions Chelsea.
From 19 home matches, Tottenham managed to go undefeated, winning 17 and drawing only two. Spurs were also able to score 47 goals for a home average of 2.76, while conceding only nine.
After just four home games, Tottenham have already dropped more points than during all of last season. Spurs’ temporary move to Wembley has yielded one win, two draw, and one defeat from four league games. Meanwhile, they have conceded three and scored only three for an average return of 0.75.
Lesser teams have a habit of defending deep, but to struggle against Burnley, Swansea City, and Bournemouth indicates that Spurs are enduring real difficulties at Wembley. Some teams have said they like playing there because it feels like a cup final, which is hardly the feeling Spurs want their opponents to experience.
Chelsea haven’t started the season smoothly, but even they were able to snatch a 2-1 victory from their third Wembley visit in a few months. Tottenham should be wary of Liverpool also arriving and playing without fear against an attack that falters at home.

After last Saturday, Liverpool have received widespread praise and acclaim for taking the game to a Man Utd side that defended sternly in the face of a midfield injury crisis. Setting aside a world-class save from David de Gea, Liverpool failed to convert three excellent chances.
Despite missing Sadio Mané, the Reds created a number of good opportunities from a front three of Philippe Coutinho, Mo Salah, and Roberto Firmino. However, their recent issue of failing to convert emerged once again.
Jamie Carragher said Klopp should have switched from 4-3-3 to 4-2-3-1 if he wanted to win the game. But that would have played into José Mourinho’s hands, with the Portuguese manager hoping for Liverpool to remove a central midfielder and give Man Utd more control in the centre of the park.
Recently, it has become clear that Liverpool are lacking a talismanic striker. Klopp’s men will continue to squander chances, but they are still capable of converting a number of attempts in some games.
A return of seven goals in four away games is slightly better than the six Liverpool have scored in four home games. However, Klopp must ensure his defence performs strongly against Spurs, having conceded 11 in four away matches.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has consistently praised the qualities of central midfielder Mousa Dembélé, who has missed the past month with an ankle injury. This forced Pochettino to field youngster Harry Winks and Eric Dier in central midfield, with the latter seeming to restrict Spurs’ creativity at a time when they need it most.
Liverpool have been criticised for their defensive displays, but five goals did come in a single disastrous display versus Man City. The Reds will be more than happy to visit Wembley and take advantage of a Spurs team struggling at home. The result could be tight, but Liverpool have the stronger options in central midfield.
