Liverpool not on revenge mission against Spurs, says Roberto Firmino ahead of Anfield battle
The Merseyside club were beaten 4-1 by a rampant Tottenham in October
“We deserved to lose that day,” Firmino told the club’s website. “The next game (on Sunday) is another game, there is no vengeance or additional rivalry because of that last game.
“We lost that game in October against them and we all played very badly, the whole team ... They are a big team and we will do our best to try and beat them.”
“I follow the games of Tottenham and they have a good team. I watched the last game against Manchester United and we know everything about their potential, but at home we are strong. It’ll be two very strong teams,” Firmino added.
“To us, this game is a classic. In Brazil we call this type of game a six-point game. We will try to be focused during the 90 minutes to try and achieve the win. That’s our aim.”
Liverpool have 50 points from 25 games with 14 wins, eight draws and three defeats and a victory on Sunday will open up a five-point lead over Tottenham. A win for the visitors, however, will take them above Liverpool.
