EPL: What Jose Mourinho Must Do To Stop Liverpool’s Front Three From Scoring


Jose Mourinho and his Tottenham Hotspur defenders will most certainly have their hands full when they welcome league leaders Liverpool to their new home ground for their latest Premier League meeting.

Spurs have been very poor this season on the defensive front especially and the front trio of Liverpool namely Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino will certainly test them.

The notion amongst Tottenham Hotspur fans is that the defence will get better with the appointment of Jose Mourinho but that has not been the case since the Portuguese tactician came on board in November.

Mourinho is renowned for the way he organizes his defence but the Portuguese manager has not been able to achieve this at Spurs who have kept just one clean sheet in the 12 games under him.

That clean sheet came during the 5-0 home win over Burnley last month.

Jose Mourinho has to look for a way to deal with the fierce and lethal Liverpool front line of Mane, Salah and Firmino and this might mean that he needs to reintroduce Davinson Sanchez into his starting XI.

Davinson Sanchez is the fastest amongst the players that make up a slow backline and he could be the one to deal with the pace of the likes of Salah and Mane.
