Liverpool predicted lineup vs Tottenham

Liverpool have a chance to move into fifth place in the Premier League this weekend as they take on current occupiers Tottenham Hotspur.

The Reds face an uphill battle to reach next season’s Champions League, though would definitely prefer Europa League qualification over the Europa Conference League.

That’s enough usage of ‘league’ for one day.

Here’s who Jurgen Klopp could call upon to take on Spurs at Anfield.


Trent Alexander-Arnold

GK: Alisson – Should probably have done better with the opening goal in Wednesday’s 2-1 win at West Ham.

RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold – Enjoying life in his new inverted role, not least because Jordan Henderson has to pick up more of the defensive slack.

CB: Joel Matip – Grabbed the winner at London Stadium and should keep his place in Liverpool’s despite Ibrahima Konate’s return to fitness.

CB: Virgil van Dijk – Put in a solid performance at West Ham but will have his work cut out trying to keep Harry Kane and Son Heung-min quiet.

LB: Andy Robertson – Only Kevin De Bruyne, Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard have recorded more Premier League assists than the Scot this season.

DM: Fabinho – Has looked less of a liability in recent weeks after playing like a man on the verge of retirement for much of the season.

CM: Jordan Henderson – Tires quickly nowadays because of the extra work covering Alexander-Arnold, but a willing runner nonetheless.

CM: Curtis Jones – Has started five successive Premier League games for the first time in his career.

RW: Mohamed Salah – Quietly racked up 16 Premier League goals this season, and somehow none from the penalty spot.

CF: Cody Gakpo – Finally found his feet as Klopp’s starting centre forward with six Premier League goals to his name since signing in January.

LW: Diogo Jota – Should be fit to start again after picking up a knock on Wednesday.
