Tottenham could be exposed at right-back by Liverpool danger Sadio Mane

Tottenham travel to Liverpool on Sunday in the Premier League and know they are in for a difficult encounter.

Spurs are looking to establish themselves in the top four of the league table, but their upcoming opponents are leading the way at the top and competing for the title against Manchester City.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have had a real weakness at right-back recently, which could play right into Liverpool’s hands.

Kieran Trippier, Serge Aurier and youngster Kyle Walker-Peters are the three full-back options to slot into the team.

 

All three have been fairly inconsistent with their form this campaign and it will be intriguing to see who Pochettino favours in the big contest, with Trippier perhaps the marginal favourite.

Liverpool’s in-form player right now is definitely left-winger Mane, who is even outperforming teammate Mohamed Salah at Anfield.

The speed machine has scored 20 goals across all competitions already and has been tormenting right-backs all season with his blend of pace and power.

Mane has scored five goals in his last four league games and Spurs boss Pochettino needs to try devise a plan to try limit his influence at Anfield.

One approach could be to implement three centre-backs alongside wing-backs to provide more defensive cover, but Spurs should be going out there to try get the three points themselves too.
