The Reds, who have not won an English league title since picking up their 18th crown in 1990, will go top of the table if they avoid defeat to Spurs this afternoon.
Sherwood understands the pressures of a title challenge, having won the Premier League as Blackburn Rovers captain in 1995.
"I know what a title run-in is like, it can be edgy," he told Tottenham's official club website. "Everyone is mentioning them now. Hopefully we'll catch a more nervous Liverpool side on Sunday."
Liverpool have won their last seven league matches, scoring 26 goals in the process.
