Hi to Edd Irwin: "Hi David,Edd Irwin here from Durban,South Africa. Pool must win this game to send a message to the top four we are going to be in the running at the end of the season Saurez is playing well and Stirling is a good feeder I think he'll get a couple of goals. I'm going for a 3-2 win for Pool."

Hello to Dale Harris: "Massive LFC fan, really hope the boys can do it today, will be a tough game for us and a stern test of our top 4 credentials. Spurs played in mid week but have a bigger squad to choose from, Liverpool have rested but have 3 key injuries and I guess over the next couple of weeks will tell us if LFC will be there or there a bouts, I'm going for an away win, it really could go either way...YNWA."
Wesley Price says: "Think this game will be close but very open in the wider areas, I think spurs pack better quality within the central midfield area but will have to link the play between themselves and either defo or soldaldo. Predicting a high tempo game spurs to win 3-1 defo Lennon and dembele goals for spurs and Suarez for Liverpool COYS."
