Two form teams and two form players for this week’s Match of the Week Review as Liverpool welcomed Tottenham into Anfield on Sunday. Liverpool came into the match having won their past 3 competitive matches by a 12-1 total scoreline, though one of those matches did see them exit the Europa League on aggregate to Zenit. Star striker Luis Suarez entered the match as the leading scorer in the Premier League this season with 22 goals in 28 matches and an incredible 6 in his last 3 in all competitions. Meanwhile, Tottenham had been on their own impressive run coming into the match with 4 wins in their last 5, including an impressive 3-0 defeat of Inter at White Hart Lane on Thursday. In addition, Tottenham have their own star man, Gareth Bale, who has 16 Premier League goals this season and is white-hot in his own right, having scored 10 goals in his last 8 in all competitions coming into Sunday’s showdown.
