Micky van de Ven fires blunt Tottenham warning to Liverpool as Virgil van Dijk claim made

Micky van de Ven has been speaking ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash against Liverpool

Micky van de Ven, a defender for Tottenham Hotspur, has told Liverpool that his team is not to be feared and has set his eyes on imitating Virgil van Dijk.

On Saturday night at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Spurs will play host to Jurgen Klopp’s team in a tantalizing Premier League match. Two of the division’s most interesting teams square off in this contest.

Following dismal seasons in the previous year, both teams have had strong starts to the current one. Tottenham is now ranked fourth in the league after winning four of their first six league games.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has won five of its six Premier League games this season and is closely pursuing league leaders Manchester City. The Reds have now won seven straight games overall after defeating Leicester City 3-1 on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup.

Nevertheless, despite Liverpool’s strong start to the season, Van de Ven has cautioned Jurgen Klopp’s club that his teammates do not fear them. Van de Ven joined Spurs in the summer from VfL Wolfsburg in a deal that may increase to £43 million.

“I am really looking forward to seeing the fans again in the stadium, and they will make it a good game from us,” he told the Press Association.

“We’re going to play how we want to play and in our own way. We are not afraid of Liverpool. I firmly believe that Virgil was one of the top defenders in the Premier League both in the previous two seasons and this one as well.

“He was outstanding and shown how crucial he is to Liverpool the year they won the title. He has demonstrated recently how significant he is.

Yes, I want to be among the top center backs in the Premier League, and I’ll work hard to achieve that goal. However, I’m just getting started, so hopefully I’ll get there in a few years.


‘At the moment’: Les Ferdinand says striker Spurs sold for £8m was better than Heung-Min Son

On the No Tippy Tappy Football Podcast, Les Ferdinand, Tim Sherwood, and Sam Allardyce have been attempting to assemble the ideal Tottenham Premier League XI.

The three analysts were given the unpleasant task of selecting the top XI Spurs players from the last 30 years and assembling them into a single team.

Some players, like Harry Kane, chose their own positions, but other choices were considerably trickier.

It was difficult to choose a second striker for this team, but Heung-Min Son didn’t even come up for discussion.

The South Korean was mentioned, but Les Ferdinand quickly shot it down, arguing that Teddy Sheringham, Robbie Keane, and Jermain Defoe were three stronger contenders. Defoe ultimately received the job.

Defoe over Son

Ferdinand decided who would be Kane’s teammate in this lineup.

We must mention Son, Sherwood insisted.

“That would be insignificant in comparison to them right now. Although I believe he is a good player, I do not currently rank him higher than Defoe, Keane, or Sheringham. He scores impressive goals, but I don’t classify him in that category, stated Ferdinand.


Heung-Min Son is being incredibly undervalued in this discussion, in our opinion.

Yes, we love Defoe as a player just as much as the next person, but Son has achieved both whereas Defoe has yet to win the Premier League Golden Boot or have a season with 20 goals.

Son, who is presently the club captain, has also scored significant goals for Tottenham in the Champions League.

Defoe was a legendary player for Spurs who had two amazing stints with the club before leaving for Toronto FC for £8 million, but Son, in our opinion, has to win this one.
