Accurate knowledge of the foreground emission (both in spatial and frequency domain) is essential to recover the faint EoR signal. In this poster using simulated data of the smooth Galactic Synchrotron foregrounds, we show some initial results of a maximum likelihood (ML) analysis. This method can be applied to LOFAR-EoR data sets before and after foreground removal to know the corresponding maximum likelihood sky.
