3. Tottenham Pulling off a Shock vs Liverpool

Liverpool are ******* incredible. An absolutely astonishing football team with an exceptional manager and world class players in every position. What they have achieved under Jurgen Klopp gets all the acclaim going and it still isn’t enough to justify their magnificence.

They will play every possible game available to them this season. Why? Because they’ve made it to every single final going.

Still on course for an unprecedented quadruple, most will back them for the Champions League and FA Cup, too. What may be the toughest task left is keeping their consistency in the league and hoping that Manchester City slip up somewhere. It almost entirely rests on City dropping points, since the Reds are nailed on favourites to win every game going.

Except for Saturday.

We’ve been here before. Tottenham, heavily unfavoured, going away to a title challenger and pulling off a shock. When all of an Arsenal affiliation had their trip to Manchester City nailed down as a home banker, they pulled off a crazy 3-2 away win. It hurt.

Granted, they followed it up with a 1-0 defeat at Burnley, but it would feel different this time, especially with that momentum heading into the North London Derby and Arsenal having to play the day after any potential Anfield triumph.

Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, right?
