Tottenham vs Liverpool

Tottenham can make up ground on Man Utd, who lost at Huddersfield on Saturday. They will have to smash a long-running winless record against Liverpool though, who they have not beaten in nine matches.
Midfielders Victor Wanyama and Mousa Dembele miss out, and there's no place for Erik Lamela too as he continues to build up his fitness.

Liverpool are without Sadio Mane of course, the speed demon affected by a hamstring injury. Adam Lallana is closing in on full fitness but this Wembley showdown is still too early for him.
Harry Kane has not scored in either of his EPL home matches against Liverpool, and not to mention he has never scored a league goal at Wembley too!

Harry Kane scored twice as Tottenham Hotspur triumphed 4-1 against Liverpool, on a day when they set a Premier League attendance record at Wembley Stadium.

A total of 80,827 people filled the ground as they moved level on points with second-placed Manchester United, whom they visit next Saturday.

Kane opened the scoring after four minutes, when Kieran Trippier played him in after a Dejan Lovren error, before the striker set up Son Heung-min to slot in the second on the counter-attack.

Mohamed Salah pulled a goal back for Liverpool but Dele Alli volleyed in Spurs' third just before half-time.

Kane fired in from close range after the break, making him the top PL scorer this season with eight goals.
