First-place Liverpool are away to Tottenham Hotspur in the star fixture in the Premier League for the weekend.
Aside from extending their lead at the top of the EPL log, Liverpool could be setting a new record tonight if they win.
This will be best-ever start in the 131-year history of English top-flight football.
However, Jurgen Klopp knows he has a tough task ahead as he goes up against a familiar foe in Jose Mourinho, who has spoiled the Liverpool party on more than one occasion in the past.
