Tottenham vs Liverpool line ups: Teams confirmed for Wembley showdown

0

LIVERPOOL start with their dynamic front trio of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and in-form Sadio Mane at Wembley against Tottenham.

“Adam Lallana is out”

Spurs are without captain and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli following the international break.

As a result, the pressure will be on star striker Harry Kane to deliver for the north London side.

Mauricio Pochettino need to bounce back from their defeat at Watford before the break, while Liverpool still have their 100 per cent record.

Jurgen Klopp has no major new injury issues to contend with, although Adam Lallana is out.

TEAMS:

Tottenham XI: Vorm, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose, Dier, Dembele, Winks, Eriksen, Lucas, Kane

Subs: Gazzaniga, Aurier, Davies, Sanchez, Wanyama, Lamela, Son

Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Keita, Mane, Salah, Firmino

Subs: Mignolet, Fabinho, Henderson, Sturridge, Moreno, Shaqiri, Matip

On the game, Klopp said: “It must be a proper fight for both teams. The Tottenham manager knows that as well.

“Last year we made it a bit too easy for them, because we lost the ball and they only had to play one pass behind our lines.

“We should be much better organised this time, we were much better organised than that in the other games (since then), so we should use that and we can get something.”

Tottenham know a win by two goals will see them leapfrog Liverpool into top spot at least temporarily.

Liverpool, though, have the chance to increase their lead in first and extend the gap back to Spurs to six points.
