Entertainment before the game (Especially for Tottenham fans, given the first half result)
It’s a big night at Anfield: Liverpool-Tottenham, Jürgen Klopp-Jose Mourinho, the champions against the leaders. But the best way to frame it, if you’re into the whole rivalry, is Liverpool vs. Jose Mourinho. The mutual hostility between them goes back a long time. In 2004, Mourinho almost became coach of Liverpool. In 2005, he is ssshhhed Liverpool fans during the Carling Cup Final Then they compared their soccer style negatively – and you’ll love this – Bolton player Sam Allardyce (8m58s in this video).
Rafael Benitez’s players stopped Mourinho’s long ball from reaching the Champions League final twice 2005 And the 2007. he is She denied them the title in 2014, When his sinister streak worked so well that Chelsea scored twice in overtime after wasting time. Liverpool’s last laughs were when they laughed Mourinho was sacked as coach of Manchester United two years ago. Many thought this was the last thing we’d see on the top table. Instead, he returned to Anfield with Tottenham at the top of the table, and with him Confidence enough to flutter his gums before the match on the Liverpool injury list.
For all Liverpool callers, the idea of Mourinho ending a series of 65 matches unbeaten at Anfield is unbearable. But this risk comes with the potential reward of putting Mourinho in his shoes. A sure win for Liverpool – who despite all his troubles has not lost a point at Anfield this season – would put him ahead and remind everyone he is the team to conquer. But if Spurs won, they were undermined Liverpool In their stronghold, all bets are off.
