David Thompson has urged Liverpool to be more aggressive at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

The Reds are bidding to bounce back from a disappointing 3-1 loss to Premier League champions Manchester City at The Etihad on Monday night.

Mario Balotelli could make his debut for his new club in north London following his £16m move from AC Milan last week.

Liverpool secured back-to-back wins against the north London side last season, winning 5-0 at White Hart Lane before a 4-0 victory at Anfield last March.

And Thompson feels that Brendan Rodgers’ side must take the game to Spurs at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham have won four successive games under new Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who was named as Tim Sherwood’s successor at the end of the season.

Thompson scored five goals in 48 appearances for Liverpool before sealing a move to Coventry City in 2000.
