‘It would be strange’ – Micky van de Ven dismisses Liverpool claim ahead of Tottenham clash

Micky van de Ven sees no reason to fear high-flying Liverpool when they travel to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday

Prior to their Premier League matchup on Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur player Micky van de Ven insisted that his team is unafraid of Liverpool.

Both teams have had successful starts to the season, with Spurs now holding the final spot among the top four teams and the Reds trailing Manchester City in second.

Liverpool’s performance levels and results have significantly improved as a result of overcoming their midfield weaknesses, and Ange Postecoglou, the new manager of Tottenham, has experienced a similar improvement since reintroducing offensive football at his new team.

The Reds’ upcoming opponents recently defeated rivals Arsenal of North London after coming from behind twice. Despite the fact that they now trail Jurgen Klopp’s team in the standings, van de Ven believes that on Sunday, the playing field will be even.

“I don’t believe we are afraid of the opposition. If you were afraid of another squad, that would be bizarre, he told the Mirror. “If you go into a game and feel thinking ‘what a team they have’ then I don’t think it is beneficial.

“We are constructing something together that we hope to achieve this season. We support one another, and I believe things are going extremely well. We need to continue fighting for one another. I anticipate that it might be a pleasant year.

“It was a challenging game. Arsenal certainly had opportunities. We had chances as well. You constantly yearn for more and the three points. However, we do have one point at the end, and we must build from there to Liverpool.

If rumored interest from the Anfield management had materialized into a formal offer, the Dutchman might have been in the opposing dugout. The fact that the two men shared a former club, Wolfsburg, which Jorg Schmadtke helped run as sporting director, led to rumors of a prospective transfer for the 22-year-old.

Instead, Liverpool concentrated on adding to their midfield, which gave Tottenham the opportunity to pounce and secure a £43 million agreement.
