Liverpool take on Spurs today for the first time since the UEFA Champions League final in Madrid.
The reds broke Spurs fans hearts in the heat of Spain when LFC landed their sixth European Cup.
That game arrived during a backdrop of pretty indifferent Premier League form from Tottenham, and Pocchetino's men have begun this season in a similar vein. Their 9 games so far have featured 3 wins, 3 defeats and 3 draws.
The reds winning run ended last week at Old Trafford, however they remain unbeaten this season and a win today would see the reds re-establish a six point lead at the top of the table.
Spurs did put in a good performance in mid-week in the Champions League - they beat Red Star Belgrade 5-0 at home. But the reds also were amongst the goals - with a 4-1 win over Racing Genk.
As it happened...
Three changes for the reds.
Trent back after illness. Gini and Henderson back in starting XI.
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
Subs: Adrian, Milner, Keita, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana, Origi.
The reds have played Spurs ten times since October 2015.
Liverpool have won 5, drawn 4 and lost 1.
Two of those 10 games were cup games with the reds winning out in a League Cup clash at Anfield and, obviously, the Champions League final in June this year.
1' Harry Kane with the opening goal.
Son shot rebounds off post and Kane puts it away.
Chances galore now for the reds.
Awaiting a breakthrough.
Spurs lead 1-0 after that first minute goal.
Plenty of chances for Liverpool since but Spurs' stand in keeper has kept the reds out.
Big second half required to avoid dropping points.
Kicking towards the Kop.
Need at least one goal. Preferably two.
No half time subs.
52' It's scrappy but a ball bounced back in by Fabinho and Henderson shins it in!
75' Mo Salah slots in the penalty after Sadio Mane is fouled in the area.
The reds deserve this lead.
Liverpool 2-1 Spurs
The reds maintain their six point lead after a well deserved win.
Henderson shin and Salah pen.
Up the reds.
