Liverpool will be welcomed by Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon with both teams looking to get a positive result from the game. The Reds have made a brilliant start to their league campaign after winning all four of their league matches so far. Jurgen Klopp’s side have not been in top form, yet they have managed to grind out results over the past few weeks.
However, it could be challenging to earn a victory against a wounded Spurs team, who are in need to bounce back from their bitter defeat at Watford. The Merseyside outfit could deploy a 4-3-3 formation, but they would be without the services of Dejan Lovren for this encounter.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Tottenham Hotspur
Alisson Becker should keep his place in the Reds first-team even after his blunder against Leicester City in the previous gameweek. Simon Mignolet would have to settle for a spot on the bench and await his opportunity in Klopp’s team.
The Brazilian shot-stopper has conceded just one goal in four league matches so he should be reasonably confident about keeping it tidy at the back despite his error in the last outing.
The incredible understanding between Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez has been one of the main reasons why Liverpool have performed so well defensively, and we can expect the central-defensive duo to put up a strong display against Spurs at Wembley once again. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson will play as the full-backs on either side of the Reds backline. Dejan Lovren can be ruled out of this clash which means that Joel Matip would be part of Klopp’s bench on Saturday.
Klopp could look to bring in Naby Keita in place of Jordan Henderson for this encounter and might play the Guinean international alongside the hardworking midfield duo of Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner. All three players have enjoyed a rich vein of form of late which is why we can expect them to dominate proceedings from the get-go during the contest at Wembley.
Liverpool’s world-class front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah will be responsible for getting the goals against Mauricio Pochettino’s team. Both Firmino and Mane found the back of the net against the Foxes in the previous gameweek so they would be confident about taking their chances in front of the Tottenham goal.
Daniel Sturridge and Xherdan Shaqiri will be part of Klopp’s bench and might come on during the game if required.
