Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool live stream, Sunday 19 December, 4.30pm GMT
Liverpool will be looking to extend their winning run to nine games in all competitions when they visit Tottenham on Sunday.
The latest Covid-19 outbreak is beginning to wreak havoc on the fixture list once more. At the time of writing half of this weekend’s scheduled games have been postponed. This match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is set to go ahead as things stand, but plenty could change in the run-up to kick-off.
Liverpool (opens in new tab) will certainly hope the match takes place. Jurgen Klopp’s side are in fantastic form right now, and it is beginning to look as though they and Manchester City (opens in new tab) could pull clear of Chelsea (opens in new tab) and make this a two-horse title race.
The Reds fell behind to an early Jonjo Shelvey goal in their meeting with Newcastle (opens in new tab) on Thursday night, but even then it never seemed likely that they would drop points. Goals from Diogo Jota, Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold duly brought Liverpool a 3-1 victory, keeping Klopp’s men just a point behind Manchester City in top spot.
Tottenham (opens in new tab) have had significantly less action of late. Having already had a game postponed last month due to snow, Spurs have seen no fewer than three of their fixtures in December called off due to Covid-19. They have not played a Premier League game since beating Norwich (opens in new tab) a fortnight ago, and a lack of match sharpness could be an issue against Klopp’s relentless Reds.
Emerson Royal, Son Heung-min, Bryan Gil, Oliver Skipp, Lucas Moura and Dane Scarlett have all returned positive tests in the last couple of weeks, and it is not known which of them are available for Spurs this weekend. Sergio Reguilon has been injured and will need to be assessed, while Cristian Romero is definitely out.
Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones have all contracted Covid-19 and will play no part for Liverpool. Divock Origi is struggling with a knee problem, while Nathaniel Phillips and Harvey Elliott are also on the treatment table.
Kick-off is at 4.30pm GMT on Sunday 19 December, and UK viewers can watch live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
