Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen is hoping his side can avenge their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool earlier this season, and has targeted victory at Anfield this afternoon as the perfect revenge. 

The Reds stormed to a five-goal win at White Hart Lane when the sides met in December, in what proved to be Andre Villas-Boas' last game in charge at Tottenham. 

But now under the stewardship of Tim Sherwood, Spurs have the opportunity to banish a few demons, in a game that carries massive importance for both sides, and Eriksen is targeting nothing less than the three points as they look to catch Arsenal in the race for the Champions League spots. 

"Everybody here wants to prove we're not that bad," the Danish star told the Independent on Sunday. 

"We have some big losses against the bigger clubs. We know if we want to go any further or any closer to the top, we have to win. It's still a big gap [to the top four].

"Of course, we will be realistic. At this point, just look one game at a time. The whole League is so close right now.

"If you lose one game you're feeling down, if you win you're up, so I think we just take one game at a time and then see where we are after Sunday.

"Everybody wants a nice cold revenge. That's certainly a distinctive response."

Eriksen has been one of Tottenham's star performers this season, since his arrival from Ajax in the summer, and struck twice last weekend as Spurs recovered from two goals down to beat Southampton 3-2.

However they face arguably the league's most inform team today, with Liverpool looking to cement their title challenge with victory that will take them top of the Premier League table. 

After their 2-1 victory over Sunderland in midweek their hopes were boosted further yesterday when Chelsea slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace, before title favourites Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw with Arsenal.
