4-3-3: Klopp Makes 2 Changes | Expected Liverpool XI vs Tottenham

By on February 2, 2018


Liverpool will be looking to cement their position in the top four when they take on Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

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

Goalkeeper: Loris Karius is now Klopp’s first choice goalkeeper so the German youngster is expected to keep his place between the sticks this weekend with Simon Mignolet once again among the substitutes.

Defence: Virgil van Dijk was named on the bench for the win at Huddersfield in midweek due to illness but the Dutch international is expected to be recalled to the starting eleven on Sunday.

Dejan Lovren didn’t put a foot wrong in midweek but I still think he’s the man most likely to make way with Joel Matip keeping his place in the middle of the back four.

Klopp has regularly rotated his full-backs throughout the campaign but I think he might stick with Joe Gomez and Andrew Robertson this weekend meaning the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Alberto Moreno will have to make-do with places on the bench.

Midfield: Jordan Henderson made an excellent return to the starting eleven against Huddersfield so the skipper should keep his place in midfield against Tottenham.

Emre Can also put in another fine goal-scoring display so the German should retain his place but James Milner could drop out with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain getting a recall.

Attack: Adam Lallana is back in training after making a swift recovery from a thigh injury but Klopp has suggested the Spurs game could come too soon so the England international may have to sit this one out.

Therefore, I think Klopp will stick with his settled front three as he doesn’t really have too many viable options for what is a must-win game this weekend.

Therefore, I think we’ll once again see Roberto Firmino leading the line up front with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in support and the likes of Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings on the bench.

Here is how we think Liverpool will line up:
