Spurs head coach Tim Sherwood is well aware of Liverpool's attacking threat so will be looking to expose a defensive frailty he believes could end the title hopefuls' seven-match winning streak on Sunday.

The Reds' goalscoring statistics this season are remarkable, with Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge having netted 51 goals between them.

Liverpool have not failed to net in any of their last 24 matches in all competitions and host Tottenham on Sunday looking to maintain their charge at a first league title since 1990.

Sherwood knows it will be a big ask to keep them at bay but believes they can upset the apple cart at Anfield thanks to the hosts' shaky defence, which has conceded 16 more goals than leaders Chelsea.

"We're aware of their attack but they do concede goals, that is one positive we can look at," the Spurs boss said.

"I am not sure how many clean sheets they've kept, but they can leak goals because they throw everything forwards.

"They can be caught on the counter-attack and we will be very respectful of the threats they have coming forwards, but we need to try and impose ourselves on them at some stage of the game."
