Alderweireld insists Liverpool clash Spurs 'opportunity'

Toby Alderweireld insists Liverpool on Sunday is an opportunity for out-of-sorts Tottenham.

The defender sees the Anfield showdown as an opportunity rather than an assignment to be scared of.

“You can see it two ways," said Alderweireld after their 1-1 draw with Watford. “It's a big opportunity for us on Tuesday. We must use that.

“Then Sunday is a big opportunity. Look, we're a team, let's go again. Let's go, like that second half. Our best, it's all we can do."

That second half he referred to was the 45 minutes against Watford on Saturday which saw Spurs lay siege to the visitors' goal until they finally cancelled out Abdoulaye Doucoure's opener with four minutes left.
