Our final home game of last term was a memorable occasion. Liverpool were still in the title chase, but a Gus Poyet goal and a superb performance by the team effectively ruled them out of the running.
Liverpool have endured a slight wobble by their own high standards this season, but we meet them just two weeks after they secured the first silverware of the campaign by beating Manchester United in the Worthington Cup final.
John, who watched the Reds in action against Bolton last weekend, feels this will have little bearing on the White Hart Lane outcome.
"It is always a great game - Liverpool at home," said our assistant boss. "Last season we played them and put on a great performance and got a good win.
"We will be looking for something along the same lines.
"I watched them play at the weekend and they got the three points on the back of winning the Worthington Cup, but I still feel there are things we can capitalise on.
"People say they have had a bad run, but they are up there and have won a cup final. It is Liverpool though and it is a game that we are looking forward to."
John knows that a natural threat to our success will come from the in-form Michael Owen - a player he knows and respects from his days with the England set-up.
"Michael Owen is a terrific player and he means a lot to Liverpool. I know what he has been like against us in the past, always a thorn in the side.
"He is player I respect very highly."
John Gorman says the management are seeking something 'along the same lines' as last season when Liverpool come to town on Sunday.
