Mauricio Pochettino’s men face a tough clash at Wembley against the Reds and their incredible attacking options
Tottenham are looking to bounce back immediately from their Premier League defeat to Watford but now face an in-form Liverpool side at Wembley.
The Reds have carried on where they left off last season and have impressed with four wins in their opening four games so far this season.
Spurs know they will have a battle on their hands in north west London in a fixture which was originally set to opening their new stadium.
But they will be handed a big boost with South Korea star Heung-Min Son returning home victorious from the Asian Games, where he earned exemption from military service.
But how will Tottenham line up for the clash? Check out talkSPORT.com’s predicted XI below.
It’s likely Premier League Player of the Month Lucas Moura will retain his place in Tottenham’s starting side given his pressing high up the pitch has given the team an added dimension, particular against Fulham and Manchester United.
Although recent social media posting involving the player’s political views do seem to have stopped the love-in surrounding his early campaign performances.
Son will, in this case, start from the bench, giving Spurs’ squad a much deeper look than it has had since Erik Lamela’s injury ahead of the match with Man United.
Danny Rose, England’s Man of the Match against Switzerland, could get a nod ahead of Ben Davies, who hasn’t been at the races so far this season.
But Mauricio Pochettino’s most intriguing decision will be his formation and whether he adopts a back-three once more.
If he does, you’re likely to Mousa Dembele start ahead of Eric Dier again. The Englishman may seem the sensible option against an attacking team but given Liverpool’s style, Pochettino may err on the side of starting Dembele, who is far more resistant to pressing.
