Tottenham predicted lineup vs Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur head into Sunday’s Premier League match at Liverpool with a little bit of restored confidence.

Ryan Mason’s first game as interim manager saw Spurs battle back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw against Manchester United on Thursday.

It’d take some effort to match such a feat at Anfield – a ground where Tottenham have not won since 2011 when Luka Modric and Rafael van der Vaart were on the scoresheet.

Here’s who could be tasked with earning a win on Merseyside this time around.

GK: Fraser Forster – Though Hugo Lloris remains out with a hip injury, Forster has been a reliable deputy and there’s a strong case that he should end the season between the sticks regardless.

CB: Cristian Romero – Looked far more like his World Cup-winning self in the second half of Thursday’s draw.

CB: Eric Dier – If there’s a weakness for Liverpool to exploit, it’s right here.

CB: Clement Lenglet – Fighting for his Spurs future with his dry loan from Barcelona up at the end of the season.

RM: Pedro Porro – The Spaniard taking on Trent Alexander-Arnold will be very ‘Spider-Man pointing at Spider-Man’ meme.

CM: Oliver Skipp – Enjoying an extended run in the side, though Spurs do miss playing at least one more technical midfielder.

CM: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg – Looking to find some form again following a woeful second half to the season.

LM: Ivan Perisic – Played under opposition manager Jurgen Klopp during their respective time at Borussia Dortmund.

RF: Dejan Kulusevski – Richarlison was useful from the off on Thursday but Spurs are just better with a creator like Kulusevski on the pitch.

LF: Son Heung-min – Just one goal away from reaching double figures for this Premier League season despite a noticeable decline.

CF: Harry Kane – Mason relied on Kane’s ability to drop in and link play against Man Utd, and he’s sure to ask the same here to combat Liverpool’s high line.
