Liverpool will be looking to close-in on the top four in the Premier League when they take on Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.

Here is the side I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game:

Goalkeeper: Number two goalkeeper Loris Karius once again played in the Champions League in midweek but Simon Mignolet is set for a recall this weekend.

Defence: Trent Alexander-Arnold got himself on the scoresheet against Maribor but I still think Klopp will stick to his policy of rotating his right-backs so Joe Gomez should come in against Spurs.

Otherwise, I think it will be a familiar defence with Joel Matip once again starting alongside Dejan Lovren while Alberto Moreno looks to have played his way back in to Klopp’s first team plans at left-back.

Midfield: Jordan Henderson was rested against Maribor in midweek and Klopp has hinted the skipper will be recalled on Sunday despite James Milner putting in a superb performance in the middle of the park.

The former England international would have been hoping to keep his place after struggling for regular game time this season but it seems Milner will drop out with Emre Can and Gini Wijnaldum lining-up alongside Henderson in midfield.

Adam Lallana has stepped up his recovery from a thigh injury but this game comes too soon for the England international so he remains unavailable for selection.

Attack: Klopp is unlikely to make any changes to his front three as they ran riot to put seven past Maribor on Tuesday night.  Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah were among the goals in Slovenia so there is no way they’ll be left out against Spurs.

It means Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will once again have to make do with a place among the substitutes despite coming off the bench to score in midweek while Sadio Mane remains out through injury.

Daniel Sturridge is likely to join The Ox on the sidelines as Roberto Firmino should lead the line up front at Wembley having scored a brace last time out.

Here is how we think Liverpool will line up:
