Jurgen Klopp’s side will be hard-pressed to maintain their 100% record when they travel to Wembley on Saturday
Premier League football returns this weekend and it’s back with a bang: Tottenham vs Liverpool at 12.30 on Saturday.
The Reds have made a perfect start to the new campaign with four wins out of four, while Spurs saw their 100% record ended with a 2-1 defeat to Watford before the international break.
Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to bounce back from that shock loss with a statement of intent against the league leaders.
This fixture certainly delivered last season, with nine goals across the two league meetings between Spurs and Liverpool.
The Whites thrashed their opponents 4-1 last time they met at Wembley, before salvaging a 2-2 draw at Anfield later in the season.
Spurs will be boosted by the return of Heung-Min Son, who avoided military service by winning the Asian Games with South Korea. He scored in this fixture last year but will have to earn his spot ahead of Premier League Player of the Month Lucas Moura.
Dele Alli was ruled out of England’s game against Switzerland due to a minor muscle strain, but is expected to be fit enough to feature.
Hugo Lloris, who pleaded guilty to drink-driving on Wednesday, is expected to retain his spot in goal.
Liverpool’s £40m summer-signing Fabinho is yet to feature in the Premier League, as Klopp insists he is adapting to their style of play.
Dejan Lovren remains sidelined with injury and Simon Mignolet is a doubt.
Tottenham: Lloris; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Trippier, Eriksen, Dembele, Alli, Rose; Moura, Kane.
Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Milner, Wijnaldum, Keita; Salah, Firmino, Mane.
