Next six Spurs fixtures gives Liverpool genuine chance to leapfrog them before Christmas

Liverpool could leapfrog Tottenham Hotspur before Christmas if the North London outfit's next six games are anything to go by.

Jurgen Klopp's side has won its last two Premier League games in a row as they look to build up momentum after defeat to Spurs and a draw with Brighton.

Spurs surprisingly lead the division with Arsenal and Manchester City in second and third respectively. Liverpool remain in fourth.

Liverpool be will be happy with their position in the table but will soon have an opportunity to take their Premier League season to the next level.

Spurs' next six Premier League games give Liverpool opportunity

Ange Postecoglou has done a great job with Spurs since being given the job over the summer. The opening 10 games of the season have seen his side score 22 goals, conceding just nine.

The North London outfit is set to have their Premier League title credentials seriously tested over the next six games. Failure to pass this text will see them overtaken by the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Their next six Premier League fixtures are:

With 18 points on grabs, Spurs could reach 44 points if they were able to take maximum points.

This is unlikely even though they are at home four times in this run of fixtures. Another advantage that Ange has over his rival managers is the lack of fixture congestion.

After losing to Fulham 5-3 on penalties in late August, Spurs no longer have Carabao Cup fixtures in their calendar. This will allow them extra rest compared to the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal. Man City are also out after losing 1-0 to Newcastle in the Third Round.

For example, Spurs next six Premier League matches will be uninterrupted by other tournaments. Their final game in this run comes on December 10th.

Liverpool and Arsenal, however, will play nine games in three tournaments while Man City have eight in two.

Despite fixture congestion, Liverpool can overtake Spurs before Christmas

Liverpool showcased their quality with a dominant display over Nottingham Forest on Sunday, scoring three with no reply at Anfield.

The front three of Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah all got on the scoresheet as Liverpool's ruthless attacking form continues.

Last week, the Reds beat Toulouse 5-1 in their third Europa League group stage game of the season.

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his side continues to fire on all cylinders in the next run of games to ensure they can overtake Arsenal, Spurs and Man City before Christmas.

Given that Liverpool finished fourth in the Premier League "Big Six" head-to-head table last season, the Reds need to ensure they pick up more points in these decisive games.

Liverpool face Man City next month and a win would set them up for an amazing end to 2023.

With Liverpool 2.0 going as well as many of us might have hoped, it will be interesting to see if this is side is really ready to challenge for the title.

A game at the Etihad in the Premier League is pretty much as tough as it gets in world football at the moment and the 2023 treble winners will be desperate to knock Klopp and Liverpool down a peg or two.
