Barclays Premier League-Carragher wants Spurs revenge


Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher admits the Reds will be out to avenge last September's 4-0 loss to Tottenham when both sides meet again at Anfield on Monday.

After a poor start to the season, Spurs gradually found form and their thumping of Liverpool at White Hart Lane marked the start of a run which has seen them rise to third in the Barclays Premier League, just five points behind joint-leaders Manchester City and Manchester United.
Tottenham were also victorious in their last trip to Anfield near the end of last season, and Carragher reveals the Reds are eager to make amends for their recent defeats, although he reserves praise for Spurs' performances this term.
"Spurs have probably been the most impressive team in the league for me this season," Carragher said on Liverpool's official website.
"I know they aren't top but they're great to watch. They play great football, very fast paced and they certainly showed that against us at White Hart Lane.
"That was our biggest defeat of the season and something we want to rectify."
Carragher feels last September's result flattered Tottenham, especially after Liverpool had Charlie Adam and Martin Skrtel sent off, but has no doubts Spurs are one of the best teams in the Premier League at the moment.
"The game [in September] changed a bit towards the end and when we were down to nine men and the scoreline flattered them to a certain extent but they played really well that day. We didn't start well enough and they caught us out.
"They also won at Anfield towards the end of last season. That's probably in the mind as much as anything. We realise we're playing against one of the best teams in the league and it's going to be very difficult."
Nonetheless, Carragher insists Liverpool will head into Monday's game full of confidence, especially after two successive cup victories over City and United.
"We proved in the last two home games, against the two teams above Tottenham, that we're a match for anyone in the country."
Liverpool are currently 6th in the Barclays Premier League, eleven points behind Tottenham.
