The whole world is waiting for the opener of English Premier League this weekend as it brings the first game of Jurgen Klopp in charge of Liverpool. “Klopp for Kop” has happened and the football world went crazy and the German charismatic manager will want to start his new challenge on a high as the Reds travel to White Hart Lane against Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham are standing 8th in the table after eight games with 13 points, only one more than 10th placed Liverpool. But after a change of manager, Liverpool will hope to change their fortunes. It is now time for Klopp to return the favour to the fans who voiced for Klopp after Rodgers got sacked.

In a game where Jurgen Klopp is the centre of attention, let us check what statistics are saying. Here are some stats and facts ahead of the game:

1> A win today will see Liverpool win six consecutive games against Spurs for the first time in their history. The last time Spurs lost 6 consecutive games against the same Premier League opponent was against Newcastle between 2006 and 2008.

2> In their last five games against Spurs, Liverpool have scored 18 goals and conceded only four.

3> They have also scored eight unanswered goals on their last two trips to White Hart Lane, winning 5-0 in 2013 and 3-0 last season.

4> Spurs hold the joint best defensive record this season with only seven goals concede in eight games. 

5> Spurs are the only unbeaten side in the league since their loss on opening day. They won 3 and drew four.

6> Christian Eriksen has scored six direct free-kicks in the Premier League since his debut in September 2013 – more than any other player.

7> Liverpool’s away record is dismal. They won only one of their last nine away trips.

8> All of Liverpool’s last eight goals in all competitions are scored by English players.

9> Liverpool have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight matches in all competitions.

10> Gerard Houllier is the only Liverpool manager to have won his first Premier League match in charge of the club, doing so in 1998 when in joint control with Roy Evans.
