Barclays Premier League fans can watch live online as a full mid-week slate of matches comes their way, highlighted by Liverpool vs. Tottenham Hotspur in what looks like a thrilling and crucial match that could make or break either side’s Champions League qualifying dreams this season.
The Liverpool vs. Spurs live webcast from at Anfield goes online Tuesday, February 10, at 7 p.m. local time — that’s 2 p.m. United States Eastern Time, 11 a.m. Pacific — and will surely be the most important of the 10 Premier League matches on the schedule for Tuesday and Wednesday, before the Premier League takes a 10-day break as FA Cup Fifth Round matches take center stage next weekend.
All of the mid-week matches will be shown in streaming video, live online in the United States via NBC Sports Live Extra (link here). The featured Liverpool vs. Tottenham Hotspur clash will also be shown on live TV, by the NBC Sports Network.
Spurs may be the most in-form squad in the Premier League at the moment, winning seven of their last nine league matches, with only a shock defeat at Crystal Palace and 0-0 draw against Manchester United blemishing their record since Spurs suffered a frustrating 3-0 defeat to league-leading Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on December 3.
Tottenham Hotspur avenged that defeat, blowing past Chelsea on New Year’s Day at White Hart Lane, 5-3, and come into the Liverpool match of a dramatic North London Derby defeat of Arsenal at home on Saturday, 2-1.
Liverpool also played a hard-fought derby match over the weekend, coming away with a 0-0 draw against Merseyside rival Everton, but have won just two of their previous five matches as they look to make a push for a second consecutive Champions League berth.
Right now, Spurs have the upper hand, as the London club looks to return to a Top Four spot, and Champions League qualification, for the first time since 2010. After its win over Arsenal, Tottenham sits at fifth place in the Barclays Premier League table, on 43 points — just one point behind Manchester United, who barely scraped out a 1-1 draw at West Ham Sunday.
Liverpool occupies seventh place, four points behind Spurs, meaning that to keep their Champions League hopes realistic, the Reds need to take all three points from Tottenham on Tuesday.
Among the nine other Barclays Premier League matches available to watch live online via NBC Sports Live Extra, Arsenal takes on last-place Leicester City in a match that, unless Tottenham defeats Liverpool, will almost certainly see the Gunners take the full three points to vault their hated North London rivals once again. That match kicks off at 2:45 p.m. Eastern Time Tuesday, with table-topping Chelsea facing Everton to highlight Wednesday’s action at 2 p.m. Eastern.
