Liverpool entertain title-chasing Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield on Saturday evening. Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will pick.
Goalkeeper: Number one goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is once again expected to keep his place in goal.
Defence: Klopp has got plenty of options to choose form at the back now so he’s got some decisions to make. Jon Flanagan seems to be playing his way in to the German coaches plans and put in another solid display against Southampton before the international break so I think we’ll see him keep his place despite Alberto Moreno’s return to fitness.
Nathaniel Clyne should also retain his place at the back while Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho seem to be the preferred central defensive partnership right now so Martin Skrtel may have to make do with a place on the bench.
Midfield: Lucas Leiva remains out with a thigh injury that he suffered while taking a spot kick during the League Cup shoot-out loss to Man City last month but James Milner returns from a one-game ban so should replace Joe Allen in midfield. Jordan Henderson is also back from illness so he’ll join Emre Can in the middle of the park.
Attack: Roberto Firmino didn’t train on Thursday as he continues to nurse a hamstring injury which has kept him out for the last two weeks so the Brazilian is once again set to miss out this weekend.
Philippe Coutinho is expected to be passed fit despite his late arrival from international duty with Brazil while Adam Lallana should also support Daniel Sturridge in attack.
Divock Origi is available despite picking up a minor knock while away with Belgium but Christian Benteke is set to miss out after suffering a knee injury last week.
Here is how I think we’ll see Liverpool line-up:
