ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Tottenham at Liverpool

ESPN2, 11:55 a.m.

Spurs have been the clear No. 3 in England, behind the Manchester powers, and American goalkeeper Brad Friedel has had plenty to do with that. Liverpool is just outside the European zone and hope that Luis Suarez's return from an eight-game ban can lead the way into the top five.
