Tottenham Hotspur boss Ange Postecoglou expects Liverpool to give a stern test to his side when they face off in the Premier League on Saturday, October 30.
Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur stand out as two of the four teams that have yet to taste defeat. Under the guidance of Juergen Klopp, Liverpool has been particularly impressive, boasting the longest unbeaten streak across all major European leagues. Their last loss dates back to April during the 2022-23 season.
During that season, Liverpool had a rocky start, finding themselves in the eighth position. However, they managed to turn their fortunes around and climbed up to finish fifth. Despite this commendable effort, they fell short of securing a spot in the Champions League.
However, according to Spurs boss Ange Postecoglou, Liverpool’s failure to qualify for the Champions League does not diminish their prowess. He believes that the team from Anfield is on an upward trajectory.
“They’ve been a very good football team for a while now. Obviously they fell off the pace last year a little, but the elements of who they are as a football team have always been there. It’s a great test for us,” Postecoglou told reporters.
“They probably bring something different from any other team in the league in the way they play and the manner they go about things.
“It’ll be a really good test for us to try to impose our football on a team that’s fairly unique in the way they play the game.”
Postecoglou heaped praise on Klopp and feels that he is a manager who has had an impact on the Premier League as a whole.
“Juergen is an outstanding manager, he’s one of the managers I think it’s fair to say who has made an impact on the competition, not just his club,” Postecoglou said.
“When he came in, with the way Liverpool went about things, he challenged quite a few of the conventions about the Premier League and introduced a new style of play that others have followed.
“It’s a great test for where we are at the moment in terms of our development.”
