Tottenham return to Premier League action after their Covid-enforced break - and they could hardly have asked for a tougher task as they take on in-form Liverpool.
Antonio Conte has publically stated that he would like to see his Spurs players vaccinated after their recent Covid outbreak, though did stress that the matter was a personal one. Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, has made his views on vaccination clear.
Still, as much as Covid is dominating the news cycle at the moment, there is (currently) a massive Premier League game to play. Spurs, unbeaten under Conte in the competition thus far, could make up some ground on bitter rivals Arsenal in fourth spot.
Standing in their way, however, is a dominant Liverpool. Klopp’s side have not failed to win since losing away at West Ham United in November and look ready to push Manchester City all the way in an enthralling Premier League title race.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The Premier League game is scheduled for a 4.30pm GMT kick-off today, Sunday, December 19, 2021.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London will host it.

Tottenham vs Liverpool team news
After their recent break, Spurs are expected to have a relatively strong squad from which to choose. Still, Conte has urged patience when it comes to players making their returns.
Tottenham vs Liverpool prediction
Under Conte, Spurs have been functional rather than fantastic. In most other games, it’d be tempting to suggest they could withstand pressure before stealing a goal on the counter, but Liverpool surely have too much.
Liverpool to win 2-1.
