Liverpool will be looking to bounce back from last weeks defeat at Burnley when they take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Saturday lunchtime. Here is the side we think Jurgen Klopp will select:

Goalkeeper: Loris Karius remains out with a hand injury so Simon Mignolet will keep his place between the sticks.

Defence: Mamadou Sakho is back in training but isn’t expected to feature tomorrow amid reports the Frenchman could be heading out on loan. Joel Matip made his full debut during the midweek EFL Cup win over Burton Albion but I think we might see Ragnar Klavan come back in this weekend.

Dejan Lovren is sure to keep his place in defence along with Nathaniel Clyne while James Milner could once again play at left-back ahead of Alberto Moreno.

Midfield: Emre Can is a major doubt for the game after being forced off in midweek with an ankle injury. The German international will be assessed at Melwood today but Jordan Henderson may play in the defensive midfield role with Gini Wijnaldum coming back in to the side. Adam Lallana is expected to play in a deeper midfield role alongside Henderson and Wijnaldum.

Attack: Sadio Mane returned with a bang in midweek after missing the Burnley game with a shoulder injury. The Senegal international was outstanding in the League Cup tie and is certain to keep his place in attack tomorrow.

However, Philippe Coutinho is a major doubt after missing the Burton game with a hamstring problem. The Brazilian was able to undergo light training at Melwood on Thursday so Klopp will be hoping he’s passed fit after today’s session.

Divock Origi is also a doubt after suffering cramp in midweek so Roberto Firmino is expected to lead the line up front with Daniel Sturridge among the substitutes.

Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:

With mounting injury worries for Liverpool, it’s easy to see why Tottenham are the 27/20 favourites to win the match but if you want even better odds, then my recommended bet would be Spurs to win 2-1 at odds of 33/4. 138.com are offering a 100% free bet up to £25 so if you took full advantage of that offer, then you would stand to win £231.25 if Spurs beat Liverpool 2-1 on Saturday!
