Tottenham had their last three games against Rennes, Brighton and Leicester City cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
They will return to action for the first time in weeks and their opponents on Sunday will be the unstoppable Liverpool side.
Before the outbreak, Antonio Conte had led the North Londoners to three consecutive wins in the Premier League.
However, it remains to be seen whether the Italian manager can maintain his unbeaten record against Jurgen Klopp’s side.
The odds are completely stacked against Tottenham in the form of the COVID-19 crisis when they welcome the Merseyside club on Sunday.
Son Heung-min, Lucas, Emerson, Oliver Skipp, Bryan Gill and Dane Scarlett are expected to miss the clash after contracting the virus.
Possible Tottenham Hotspur line-up
Hugo Lloris; Davinson Sanchez, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Japhet Tanganga, Pierre Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Sergio Reguilon; Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn; Harry Kane
Injured: Cristian Romero
Unavailable (COVID-19): Son Heung-min, Lucas, Emerson, Oliver Skipp, Bryan Gill and Dane Scarlett
It appears like there is no stopping Liverpool at the momentum after winning each of their last eight games across all competitions.
The Reds are coming on the back of an emphatic 3-1 win over Newcastle United in which Trent Alexander-Arnold scored a stunning goal. Mohamed Salah also extended his tally to 15 goals in the Premier League this season and he is currently leading the scoring charts.
Ibrahima Konate continues to earn the trust of Klopp after producing impressive performances in the defence.
Currently trailing leaders Manchester City by 1 point, the Reds could look to reach the top on Sunday.
Like many Premier League clubs, Liverpool’s camp has also been hit by COViD-19, with Virgil van Dijk, Curtis Jones and Fabinho turning out to be the contingent.
Nonetheless, Jurgen Klopp has a strong squad at his disposal and the German manager would take the game to the North Londoners on Sunday.
Possible Liverpool line-up: Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Andrew Robertson; Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Thiago; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane
Injured: Divock Origi, Harvey Elliott, Nat Phillips, Adrian
Unavailable (COVID-19): Virgil van Dijk, Curtis Jones, Fabinho
