Tottenham confirm double injury boost before Liverpool as Pochettino explains rotation plans

Tottenham confirm double injury boost before Liverpool as Pochettino explains rotation plans”

"Top four, for sure, is a success", declared Klopp, who won the Bundlesliga title twice as Borussia Dortmund coach.

Liverpool have only lost one of their last 23 home Premier League games against Spurs (W15, D7).

Both sides have an impressive set of attacking players, and also have managers who like to press the opposition.

According to WhoScored.com, Nathaniel Clyne is out of Sunday's match, while Adam Lallana remains a doubt.

Despite making Virgil van Dijk the most expensive defender in football history through a £75m move from Southampton, Liverpool still closed the window with a huge profit following the sale of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for £142m.

Loris Karius should continue in goal. Let's take a look at who makes the cut! They had a good start, a good middle, and a good finish to the game, and that's why they won, but it has absolutely nothing to do with the next game. In his stead, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain should get the nod. There's a world of difference between being fit and comfortable in training and taking on Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in a full-blooded contest in front of a crowd of 45,000.

Tottenham are ready to welcome Serge Aurier back in to the squad after he overcame a calf injury while Harry Winks is also in contention after recovering from an ankle problem. There are other reasons for optimism as well, namely Lucas Moura's signing from PSG.

It's possible we see Alberto Moreno at left-back, as well as either Gini Wijnaldum or James Milner starting in the midfield.

Son Heung-min has seven goals in his last 14 games in all competitions.

"The Tottenham game at Wembley [which Liverpool lost 4-1] was just not a good game for us". Instead, they have one of each - they have the balance between possession and penetration, between assists and goals. The Englishman leads the Premier League goalscoring charts with 21 goals this season.

The player has come under scrutiny very early on in his Liverpool career. Alli is a curious player, a No.10 in terms of positioning, but best when charging into the box to make late runs, nearly as a support striker.

If one side can organise their defence then that could be enough to secure the win, but both teams will be unsafe up top and the goals could flow.

England global Lallana sustained a serious thigh injury in pre-season and has struggled for fitness, featuring only seven times for the club in all competitions this season. [Virgil] Van Dijk, [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang.

"It might be hard to win the Premier League but we are still improving". The only defeat he has suffered against these teams is a 1-0 loss to Manchester United in January 2016.

Klopp told The Liverpool Echo ahead of the Premier League game against Tottenham on Sunday: "Dele Alli, not the same season as last season, but still the highest quality".
