Liverpool are in London to play Spurs in the Premier League tonight. Let’s take a look at the possible starting lineup Jürgen Klopp may go with.
The Reds arrive at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium without a win in five league games. They have also failed to score in the last four of those matches. Mohamed Salah did manage to score twice as Liverpool lost at Manchester United in the FA Cup last Sunday. Hopefully, that’s a sign that the goals are on their way back in the league as well.
Klopp knows he is still without Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota, Naby Keïta and Kostas Tsimikas. However, some good news this week was the return of Jordan Henderson and the confirmation that Joël Matip is *still* fit and was just rested for our last game at Old Trafford.
Alisson Becker will start in goal for Liverpool with our best available back four in front of him – Trent Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, and Andy Robertson.
In midfield, many Reds fans are hoping that Henderson starts in the ‘6’ role which would free Thiago up to push further forward. Henderson’s influence cannot be overstated and Klopp will be delighted to have his captain back in the squad. If Henderson does start, then I expect Thiago and Gini Wijnaldum to make up the rest of the midfield trio.
Sadio Mané should come back into the starting eleven after being rotated out for the FA Cup game last weekend. That will make a full-strength front three of Salah, Bobby Firmino and Mané.
Predicted Liverpool lineup (4-3-3) vs Spurs: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson; Henderson, Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mané
