Tottenham are sixth and they are fighting for a Champions League spot. The poor start of the season is the main reason why the Spurs are outside Top 4 . Jose Mourinho, who replaced Pochetino, has a difficult job to improve the results. To be worse, key striker Harry Kane has suffered a torn hamstring and limped off during the match with Southampton. Liverpool, meanwhile, have a fantastic season. The Reds are leaders in the Premier League with huge 13-point advantage. Even more, Liverpool have a match in hand. Jurgen Klopp s men have already won three trophies in 2019 - the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup. However, winning the Premier League is what the fans want. Usually, the second part of the season was problematic for Liverpool. They are the only club that finished top at Christmas and not lifted the trophy in May. This could be a big psychological issue for the players. But there is more - Mourinho. The Portuguese manager have faced Liverpool 28 times throughout his career - more than he has faced any other club. Of those 28 games he has lost just seven, while in the Premier League he has lost only three of 17. I think he is able to upset the leaders.
