    Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Monday 6th February 2012 in the 24th round of the 2011-12 Premier League season.

    Liverpool come into the match in 5th place on 38 points, while Spurs are in 3rd place on 49 points.

    This will be the 161st time the two teams have met.

    The first meeting came on Boxing Day in 1894 when Liverpool, who had been established just two years earlier after a dispute with Everton, played a friendly at Tottenham Marshes in a game won 3-0 by Spurs. A further visit from Liverpool was even less successful in Easter 1895 with Spurs winning 6-0.

    The first Football League meeting between the two clubs took place at White Hart Lane in November 1909 with Spurs winning 1-0 thanks to a Bert Middlemiss goal. He became the first Spurs player to score against both Merseyside clubs.

    The reverse fixture that season was won by Liverpool at Anfield 2-0. Anfield had previously been the home of Everton before their move to Goodison Park.

    All 134 League meetings played to date between Spurs & Liverpool have taken place in the Top Flight of English football.

    Tottenham's 2-1 First Division win at Anfield in March 1912 would be their last at the ground for 73 years with the jinx finally being broken by a Garth Crooks goal in 1-0 win in March 1985.

    The first FA Cup meeting came in the 5th Round in March 1968 and resulted in a 1-1 draw at the Lane. Liverpool won the replay 2-1.

    To date, the clubs have met 7 times in the competition with Tottenham's only win coming at Anfield in the 6th Round in March 1995 when goals from Teddy Sheringham and Jurgen Klinsmann earned a 2-1 victory.

    The teams first met in the Football League Cup in 1972 and have played 7 times in the competition with Spurs winning four games with two draws.

    Liverpool's only win came in the 1982 Final at Wembley which was won 3-1 after extra time. Steve Archibald put Spurs ahead but Ronnie Whelan's brace and a goal from Ian Rush ensured that the Reds lifted the silverware.

    The teams contested the Charity Shield in August that year with League Champions Liverpool beating FA Cup Winners Spurs 1-0.

    Liverpool are one of three English clubs Spurs have played in European Competitions to date - the other being Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

    Spurs beat Liverpool in the 1973 UEFA Cup Semi-Final 2-1 with a brace of goals from Martin Peters but a 1-0 win to Liverpool in the second leg at Anfield meant that the Reds progressed to the Final on the away goals rule.

    Two matches were played in Swaziland in June 1984 reulting in a 5-2 win for Liverpool and a 1-1 draw.

    In December 1985 and January 1986 the clubs met in the Screen Sport Super Cup - a competition played due to English club's being barred from European competition - with Liverpool winning both matches 2-0.

    Both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur were founder-members of the Premier League in season 1992-93 and are two of the seven clubs who have been ever-present in the competition for the past 20 seasons (Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Everton and Manchester United are the other five).

    The home fixture at White Hart Lane last season in November resulted in a 2-1 win for Spurs. Liverpool went ahead just before halftime with a goal from Martin Skrtel but Spurs came back in the second half with an own goal from Skrtel after 65 minutes and an injury-time winner from Aaron Lennon.

    The reverse fixture at Anfield in May proved to be the UEFA Europa League decider with Spurs winning 2-0 with goals from Rafael van der Vaart and a Luka Modric penalty.

    During the summer, Spurs added former Liverpool goalkeeper (1997-2000) Brad Friedel to their playing staff.

    The game at White Hart Lane in September 2011 was won 4-0 by Spurs with goals from Luka Modric, Jermain Defoe and a brace from new loan signing Emmanuel Adebayor. Liverpool had both Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel sent-off.

    Liverpool have won 17 of the 39 Premier League matches played so far with Spurs on 12 wins and 10 draws.

    Overall, Liverpool have the upper hand over Spurs with 73 wins to 48 with 39 of the 160 matches played so far drawn.

    Was too wee to see it on anything but old replays, but a certain game from 1978 always sticks in my memory, when I think of Liverpool V Spurs, Tottenham had Ardiles,Villa ( world cup winners ) and Hoddle in midfield. With Terry McDermott scoring the last, the best team goal Ive ever seen scored for Liverpool, EVER

    What was the score again, I will have to remind myself

    Oh yes, that was it!!

    Kenny wasnt too shabby that day...............

    I've watched that game, incredible team performance.

    Credit to Ardiles and Villa as they actually applauded our team after the game.

    The thing I love about that goal is two great cross field balls, the cross from Heighway FIRST TOUCH,is the best cross Ive ever seen,bar none.
    And the odds of all that coming off where about 100000/1 yet Terry Mc sprinted full tilt, not 3/4 speed,as fast as he could, must of done one end of the pitch to the other in about 12 seconds, in the last 5 minutes of the game, when were 6-0 up.

    The crowd after the goal, doesnt really cheer straight away, it almost a awwww, they are almost dumbstruck to the quality of the goal

    Like I say for me, Liverpools best ever goal

    I really hope we smash them horrible ****s. The majority of their fan's are chavvy idiot's, they have won 1 carling cup since 1991 and they think they are some sort of massive club. I hope harry is proved innocent so he can leave them for England, then Modric and Bale will be off and the spuds will be back in mid table where they belong and where they have spent most of their existence as a football cub.

    Yeah <laugh>

    But he more than made up for it with some superb goals for us.


    He scored a 'true' hat-trick(left foot,right foot and a header)for us in his first full game for us against Charlton away.
