League leaders Tottenham welcome title hopefuls Liverpool to White Hart Lane for Sunday lunchtime kick-off.

Spurs have made a blistering start to the campaign after winning both their games and are yet to concede a goal. The north Londoners will be hoping to avenge last season's 5-0 home loss to the Reds.

Mauricio Pochettino has made an impact straight away and will hope to continue the good run of form at the Lane.

The Argentine has a fully fit squad to choose from, but is likely to stick to the same 11 that started the previous Premier League games.

Meanwhile, Liverpool come into this game on the back of a 3-1 mauling at the hands of one of the title favourites Manchester City. Despite the Reds starting the game well and showing improvement, the Citizens were just too strong and clinical for Liverpool to handle.

Brendan Rodgers will be keen to get back to winning ways as soon as possible and lot of attention will be on the debut of Mario Balotelli, who is set to begin his second stint in the English Premier League. The Northern Irishman has also confirmed the availability of former Saints captain Adam Lallana, who has recovered from injury and will make an appearance during the game.

Even though it is early in the season, these games will have a big impact, if not on the points table, definitely on the morale and confidence of the players.

Stat of the Match: Liverpool have not lost back to back games in the Premier League since December 2013.

What Managers Say

Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham): "The past is the past [on last year's defeat]. I don't want to remember the past. It is a new season, I think a different style, different philosophy. Liverpool invested a lot of money this summer and we went another way. We believe in our squad and add some players for the balance. Two different ways [of approaching things]."

Brendan Rodgers (Liverpool): "This is not the Mario Balotelli show. He is a good player, a talented player. But he has got a lot of work to do here. We have a number of top-class players and the star of this team will always be the team. Mario has settled in very well and has looked fantastic in training. He is a good lad. The focus is very much on his football and he has done very well."
