Liverpool will be hoping to bounce back in this fixture following their 1-3 loss to Premier League champions Manchester City in their last fixture.

Though the Reds, who are still in a transitional phase following the departure of their talisman Luis Suarez, were the better side in the first half, they failed to make their chances count.

After an error by debutant Alberto Moreno allowed City to take the lead just before the break, they were never really able to find their way.

In the end, Liverpool were only able to get a late consolation as the Citizens emerged victorious with a 3-1 score line.

However, the Reds will be hoping to better in this game, having registered some truly convincing wins, 5-0 (White Hart Lane) and 4-0 (Anfield) against the Spurs last season.

Although the Reds have no Suarez to help them with comprehensive victories this season, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is confident Balotelli will be equally lethal.

"Everyone knows his quality and we have seen it this week in training. We have seen the sheer power and pace and the touch that he has. He wants to score goals and I think he wants to do it consistently now. That is why we are working really hard on his football," Rodgers told the Guardian.

Tottenham, on the other hand, will certainly be no push-overs this season as they have already shown their lethal touch by registering wins in their first two Premier League fixtures against West Ham and QPR.

Their 4-0 victory over the Hoops was particularly impressive as the Spurs showed that they are capable of getting some big margin wins this season.

Last season, the Spurs suffered some heavy defeats at the hands of Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea and this led to the inevitable sacking of Andre Villas-Boas, who spent a fortune on the transfer market following the sale of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid for a record fee of €100 million.

Although interim boss Tim Sherwood managed to eventually lead the Spurs to a fifth place finish in the Premier League, it wasn't good enough for the club and he was soon replaced by Mauricio Pochettino, who was very successful with Southampton last season.

And now the Argentine boss has already showed what he can do by leading the Spurs to victories in the Premier League and the Europa League (qualifying).

Despite the Spurs suffering some humiliating defeats against Liverpool last season, Pochettino claims that that will not be on the back of their minds when they host the Reds on Sunday.

"The past is the past," the Argentinean told the Guardian. "I don't want to remember the past. It is a new season, I think a different style, different philosophy.

"Liverpool invested a lot of money this summer and we went another way. We believe in our squad and added some players for the balance."

Team News:

Tottenham Hotspur: Spurs will be without their striker Roberto Soldado as he is still recovering from a back injury. Kyle Walker is also a doubt for this game due to a pelvis injury. Apart from that Mauricio Pochettino has a full squad to choose from.

The former Southampton boss may be handed out a debut to centre-back Fazio, who recently completed his switch from Sevilla.

Liverpool: DanielAgger, Oussama Assaidi and Jon Flanagan are unavailable for this game as all three are recovering from a knee injury. Alberto Moreno, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson, who picked up knocks during Liverpool's 1-3 loss to City last week, will be going through a late fitness test ahead of this game. Jose Enrique is also a doubt as he has not completely recovered from a knee problem.

The good news for Liverpool is that Adam Lallana has returned to fitness and may be making his debut along with Mario Balotelli, who recently completed a £16 million switch from AC Milan.

Expected Lineups

Tottenham Hotspur: Lloris, Dier, Fazio, Vertonghen, Rose, Capoue, Bentaleb, Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela, Adebayor

Liverpool: Mignolet, Manquillo, Lovren, Skrtel, Moreno, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Balotelli, Sturridge.
