Pre-match: Liverpool

Posted on 16 January 2004  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Gary Doherty has no particular preference when it comes to which of Liverpool's likely duel strikeforce he would rather mark on Saturday.

Michael Owen and Emile Heskey are the probable pairing and, it would be easy to imagine with the way he successfully shackled the burly Mark Viduka at Leeds last weekend, that picking up Heskey would be Doc's preferred option.

The in-form centre-half - so impressive in the 2004 wins over Crystal Palace, Birmingham and Leeds - doesn't really see it that way, but says both players bring great qualities to the Liverpool attack.

"I don't know, to be honest," he pondered on which striker he would choose to mark. "They are both top class players who have really shone in the Premiership and at international level. I am a big fan of the two of them.

"Obviously Owen is world class and admired everywhere and I feel Heskey does a great job for them. He is good in the air, has a great shot on him and fights for everything."
