Liverpool will lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Thursday night as they look to return to winning ways in the Premier League. The Reds have suffered back to back losses versus Burnley and Manchester United recently which has drained their confidence going into this midweek clash at the English capital.
Jurgen Klopp will stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few tweaks to his first-team for this away encounter versus Spurs. Both Joel Matip and Sadio Mane are expected to start while Divock Origi would once again have to settle for a spot on the bench.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Tottenham Hotspur
Alisson Becker will retain his spot in between the sticks for the Reds after two poor displays in his last two outings. The Brazilian keeper can expect a busy night and would have to be at his best if he wants to stop the Tottenham players from scoring in midweek.
Barring any late injuries, Joel Matip will return and operate alongside Fabinho at the heart of the Liverpool backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes. Trent Alexander-Arnold might keep his place at right-back despite his poor run of form of late. Andrew Robertson will continue to fill in on the other flank as the left-back. Klopp will ask both of them to regain their composure and be more decisive in the final third so that they can offer enough ammunition to the front players.
Klopp’s midfield will be comprised of Thiago Alcantara, Georginio Wijnaldum and Curtis Jones as they look to dominate the ball at the centre of the park and limit the Tottenham players from breaking fast on the counter.
Jordan Henderson is a major doubt and will be in a race against time to be fit for this game. However, James Milner will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to freshen things up in the second 45 minutes if required.
Sadio Mane will get the nod to play on the left flank after getting a well-deserved rest versus Man United in the FA Cup last weekend. Mohamed Salah will feature on the other side as the right-winger as he looks to produce another productive display in the final third. The Egyptian international scored a brace at Old Trafford last weekend, which will keep him in high spirits ahead of this game versus Jose Mourinho’s men.
Roberto Firmino will lead the line for the Reds down the middle. He is due a big performance after a barren run in front of the opposition goal in recent weeks.
