Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is back in action this weekend as they welcome title challengers Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield in a high-intensity encounter. Both clubs love to play in their particular style and it will be interesting to see who comes out better on the night.
Klopp, before the game revealed that Phillipe Coutinho, Alberto Moreno, and Divock Origi are all fit after all the three were cleared of their respective injuries from the international break. Belgium striker Christian Benteke is, however, out with a muscle problem while Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino is a doubt for this game. With the game against Dortmund looming over the mid-week, it will be interesting to see if the manager will rest any key players for this tie at Anfield.
Here is the strongest XI Liverpool are likely to field against Tottenham on Saturday:
The club’s first-choice goalkeeper will keep his place in the starting XI irrespective of the fuzz going on around his place in the team.
In recent games, the local lad has done no harm to his reputation and being not eligible to play in the Europe league, Flanagan should start this weekend.
Though was unsettled against Southampton’s front line, Lovren has been solid recently and will once again assume a role in the centre of the defense.
The French international had a superb game away on national duty and will be full of confidence going into this game against the Spurs.
Another strong performance from Clyne in the international break makes him an undisputed name on the team sheet for every Liverpool game.
After getting a rare cap for Germany, Can will be hoping to prove his worth for his nation and will be pumped up against Tottenham on Saturday.
The skipper had a forgettable night against Southampton and will have to bounce back against the Lilly Whites this weekend.
The stand-in England skipper, James Milner will have to be at his best coming back from a small injury if Liverpool are to have any chance of beating the Spurs.
Enjoyed two great games in the international break and looks a more confident player from the start of the season. He will have to work the strings in front of goal and create chances to give Tottenham a hard time at Anfield.
The talisman in the squad, Coutinho was a doubt for this game but now that he is declared fit, he will assume an important position just behind the striker for Liverpool.
The England international had a decent game for his country in the break and will be itching to have a go this weekend after failing to find the back of the net in the last 3 games.
