Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne believes that his side have the ability to beat Tottenham in their upcoming Premier League match.
The Reds host Spurs on Saturday in the Premier League and will be looking to end their recent poor run of form.
The Merseyside club have just once victory in 10 matches across all competitions in 2017 and are now fifth in the league table.
Jurgen Klopp’s side appear to have been blown out of the title race and will be more focused on obtaining a top four spot.
Meanwhile, Spurs are currently second-placed in the tale and will go six points behind Chelsea with a victory.
Clyne feels that Liverpool can get back to winning ways on Saturday and draw encouragement from the 1-1 draw in the previous league meeting this season.
“It won’t be easy because Tottenham are a very good side,” Clyne told the Echo. “But we’ve got the ability to beat them.
“Spurs picked up where they left off last season. They are a top side with quality all over the pitch. “But we’ll take confidence from the draw at White Hart Lane earlier this season. We were the better team and cruising before they equalised.”
Liverpool suffered a shock 2-0 defeat away to relegation threatened Hull in their last game and their home form has not been much better.
The Reds are without a win at Anfield in their last five games across all competitions and will be hoping to make home advantage count against Spurs.
Clyne is likely to retain his position at right-back, but will be wary of emerging youngster Trent Alexander-Arnold in the squad.
