Kasey Keller says the team must not get lulled into a false sense of security by Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
Liverpool have a reputation for allowing the opposition to play a bit and are seemingly content to surrender periods of possession and draw teams onto them.
Kasey points out that, while teams can draw confidence from having a healthy share of the attacking impetus, it is of no consequence if it is not reflected in the scoreline.
"It helps you a little bit but, the bottom line is, it doesn't matter if you keep the ball the whole game and they beat you 2-0 with two counters," pondered Kasey.
"We need to go there and keep it solid from our side. If we keep the ball, great, but we mustn't get drawn into a false sense of security. Playing well, passing the ball around and then, bam, they're behind you and you're 1-0 down having been right in the game. That's what we have to be careful of."
Kasey is looking forward to starting his first game at Anfield as a Spurs player and, from previous visits with Leicester, always enjoys the rousing reception the Kop affords the opposition goalkeeper - a species he feels the Liverpool supporters respect.
"They do, very much so. I don't know why it is. Over the last few years when I've been there I think they've given their own goalkeepers a lot more stick than the opposition!
"That's obviously changing, Dudek had a very good season for them last year and looks back to his best after a disappointing World Cup. He looks fantastic right now.
"They do like goalkeepers and we'll see if they like me again after the weekend."
