Predicted Liverpool Lineup To Face Tottenham In The Premier League

Liverpool will entertain Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday with what is expected to be a blockbuster game at Anfield. The Reds left behind a miserable week by bouncing back against Huddersfield Town. Goals from Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah completed an utterly dominant 3-0 victory at the John Smith’s stadium.

Spurs, on the other hand, come to this game on the back of a fantastic, morale-boosting win against Manchester United on Wednesday.

The last time these two sides met, the game went in Spurs’ favour as Mauricio Pochettino’s men ran riot at Wembley, winning 4-1.

Team News

Other than Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Bogdan, Liverpool have a fully-fit squad. Skipper Jordan Henderson started at Huddersfield and is expected to lead his team out against Spurs. Meanwhile, Dejan Lovren remains at the risk of getting a one-game suspension.

Probable Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Loris Karius (GK)

Karius is now Liverpool’s No.1 goalkeeper and the German kept a clean-sheet on Tuesday. Expect him to build on from that.

Joe Gomez (RB)

Gomez has done really well at right-back. He would be tasked with keeping the in-form Heung-Min Son at bay.

Dejan Lovren (CB)

Lovren has come a long way since the howler at Wembley against Spurs. The Croatian has looked solid lately, that has seen him earn back Klopp’s faith.

Joel Matip (CB)

He was bad at Swansea and shocking against West Brom in the FA Cup defeat. However, he came good in his last outing and is raring to go once again.

Andrew Robertson (LB)

Moreno’s injury concerns have seen Robertson grab the chances given by Klopp. The Scotsman is lively, energetic and full of running, along with defensive solidity.

Jordan Henderson (CDM)

Henderson is the proper player to sit deep and dictate the tempo at Liverpool. It is good to see our skipper come back from injury.

Emre Can (CM)

He opened the scoring against Huddersfield. He worked his socks off and his industrious nature makes him a player worthy of receiving regular game time. If the German can sort out his contract, he could become a brilliant midfielder at Anfield.

James Milner (CM)

Milner has looked subpar recently but did improve at Huddersfield. The English midfielder would be keen to start on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

Salah has been in imperious form since joining Liverpool at the start of the season. There is no stopping the Egyptian at the moment. He keeps on scoring and netted one against Huddersfield.

Sadio Mane (LW)

The departure of Philippe Coutinho has helped Mane in every way. The Senegalese has looked livelier and hungrier in recent times and would be a constant menace to the Spurs defenders.

Roberto Firmino (ST)

There is no stopping this Brazilian, who netted in the mid-week game. Firmino has become one of the first players on the teamsheet. A sure starter against Spurs.

Liverpool equal two more records after their impressive 2-0 win over Fulham

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Liverpool don’t seem to be the same team from last season, despite boasting an unbeaten record in the Premier League.

The Reds beat Fulham 2-0 to make it 30 points from 12 games, and are just two behind Manchester City who lead the table.

Our attack hasn’t blitzed the opposition like last season, but the numbers suggest this has been an amazing start to the Premier League campaign.

Ian Doyle wrote for the Liverpool Echo about the latest game and claimed that we have matched our best points tally after 12 games.

Doyle further claimed that our goal difference of +18 was the best in terms of Premier League seasons.

Our attack might not be firing on all cylinders but our defence has been exceptional so far. Alisson kept yet another clean sheet on Sunday, and we also equalled the record for clean sheets from 1977-78 and 1978-79.

James Milner scores for Liverpool against Arsenal

In fact, our defence has been the reason why we have done so well this season. We barely seem to concede and Virgil van Dijk has been an exceptional purchase, alongside Alisson.

The pair combined well to start an attack against the Cottagers on Sunday. Van Dijk signalled Alisson to take a free-kick early, and that resulted in Mohamed Salah opening the scoring for the Reds.

The Reds haven’t been that great in the Champions League, and we need to ensure our qualification into the next round.

“I can’t believe it”, “Shocked” – Some Liverpool fans unsure about Mohamed Salah’s choice of T-shirt

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah is one of the biggest stars in football. The Egyptian has grown in stature since his move to Liverpool from AS Roma last season, and helped Liverpool to a Champions League final too.

The former Roma star is also one of the most recognisable faces in the world, and there have been murals, statues and paintings celebrating the success of the Liverpool attacker.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the player wants a bit of privacy and Salah tweeted an image of him travelling “incognito”.

The player wearing a Balaclava would not have been much of a problem, but many fans didn’t like his choice of shirt.

The Egyptian wore a “Project-Playboy” shirt and while we cannot say what his intentions were by sporting the shirt, some of the fans questioned his taste, while others some supported him.

“I want to help the team” – Liverpool star wants to continue helping team after impressive performance against Fulham

Xherdan Shaqiri of Liverpool

Xherdan Shaqiri isn’t concerned about how many goals he scores and wants to help Liverpool do well. The Swiss star started in our 2-0 win over Fulham and scored a wonderful volley after Mohamed Salah opened the scoring.

The 26-year-old was pleased with his finish and told Liverpool’s website:

“The [kind of] impact is not so important for me. I want to help the team.

“When it’s with a goal or assist, it’s always good for the team. I came in the summer to help this team go forward and make the process better.

“I’m very happy with my performances, I just have to keep going like this and train hard every day. I hope we keep going until the end like this.”

Although the former Stoke City star hasn’t started many games for Liverpool, the stats are pretty decent for the 26-year-old.

The attacker already has two goals and three assists from four starts, and his performances should put forward his case of starting more games.

The Swiss attacker was the cheapest transfer we made in the summer, but he looks a quality purchase now.

Jurgen Klopp changed his formation to fit Shaqiri into the starting XI against Fulham. However, the Swiss star was the X Factor in our win over the Cottagers, and hopefully, he keeps getting the starts after the international break too.
