Tottenham Vs Liverpool: Reds Face Tough Task In London
The attacking pair of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have started the season brightly for Liverpool; helping the Reds to a perfect run so far in the Premier League with four wins in as many games.
The duo as well as Firmino will however face a sterner test in London where they will be up against Spurs who are three points behind them.
Since the start of last season, Manchester City are the only team to have scored more goals, attempted more shots and averaged more possession in the Premier League than Spurs or Liverpool.
With this, fireworks are expected in London and those into bets will expect as much as three goals.
That said, it should be noted that since losing 4-1 at Spurs last October, Liverpool have the Premier League's best defensive record (conceded 23 goals in 33 games) and have kept the most clean sheets in that period.
Liverpool are expected to be genuine title challengers to Manchester City this season and people said the same about Tottenham after a landmark win at Manchester United.
But Spurs followed that 3-0 victory at Old Trafford with a 2-1 defeat to Watford, where Pochettino accused his players of operating as if it was a testimonial match.
Tottenham will be without Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli.
Goalkeeper Lloris, who was sentenced this week for drink-driving, has been ruled out for several weeks with a thigh injury while England midfielder Alli has a hamstring problem sustained during the international break.
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is likely to miss out with the groin strain that saw him leave the England squad during the international break. Meanwhile, Simon Mignolet is fit after a hand injury
The kick-off time for the match is 12:30pm.
Tottenham’s possible starting XI: Vorm; Vetonghen, Sanchez, Alderweireld; Davies, Dier, Tripper, Dembele, Eriksen; Kane, Moura
Liverpool’s possible starting XI: Alisson; Robertson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold; Keita, Wijnaldum, Milner; Mane, Firmino, Salah
