North Londoners looking to maintain good recent run against the Reds.
Tottenham Hotspur midfield player Scott Parker says that the North Londoners are now entering the most crucial part of their season as the club prepare to take on in-form Liverpool at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday, says the Sunday Telegraph.
The veteran England international is currently enjoying an injury free run in the side, having only returned to first team action last December following a long running Achilles tendon problem that the 32-year-old picked up playing for England against Italy in last summer’s European Championship finals in Poland and the Ukraine.
However, Parker’s return to the Tottenham starting XI has coincided with a great run of form for Andre Villas-Boas’s men of late, culminating in Thursday night’s 3-0 win over Serie A giants Inter Milan at White Hart Lane in the first leg of their Europa League last 16 tie.
And a win on Merseyside would extend Spurs’ seven-point lead in the table over arch-rivals Arsenal.
“Arsenal, Inter, Anfield then the San Siro, you can’t get four bigger games than that,” Parker said.
“Liverpool is massive. We’re flying but I think they are looking the part now has well. It will be difficult, but we can hopefully come out on to.
“Our main objective is to get fourth and we still have difficult games coming up. The race for fourth certainly isn’t over. We’ve put ourselves a little bit clear of Arsenal, but we have some tough games coming up.”
