Liverpool will be looking to maintain their perfect start to the new season when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday lunchtime. Here is the team we think Jurgen Klopp will select:
Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker conceded his first goal of the season after his error gifted Leicester a goal during Liverpool’s 2-1 win at the King Power before the international break but the Brazilian international is still certain to keep his place on Saturday.
Defence: Klopp has selected a settled back four in each of their four games so far this season and I see no reason why the Liverpool manager will change things this weekend.
Joe Gomez was excellent during the win at Leicester so he should keep his place alongside Virgil van Dijk in the heart of defence meaning Joel Matip will have to make-do with a place on the bench once again.
Trent Alexander-Arnold continues to develop in to a top class right-back so I expect the England international will start ahead of Nathaniel Clyne while Andrew Robertson will no doubt retain his place at left-back.
Midfield: However, we could see a change in midfield as Naby Keita is expected to be recalled after being given a breather against Leicester before the international break.
Jordan Henderson is the man most likely to make way as James Milner has started every game so far this campaign and Georginio Wijnaldum has been excellent in the holding role so they should both keep their places against Tottenham.
Fabinho hasn’t made the matchday squad for the last three matches as Klopp’s opted to ease the South American in to life in the Premier League so a place on the bench is the best he can hope for on Saturday.
Attack: Liverpool have a huge seven game run ahead of them so Klopp will need to rotate his players at some point over the coming weeks but I don’t see him leaving any of his super-star front three out against Spurs.
Sadio Mane has been outstanding so far this season so he’s highly unlikely to be left out while Mohamed Salah is also certain to keep his place in attack as he looks to build on last seasons heroics.
Roberto Firmino should be fresh after being rested by Brazil on Tuesday night so I expect him to lead the line up front at Wembley with the likes of Xhedran Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge having to make do with places on the bench.
However, Adam Lallana is set to miss out after picking up a groin injury while away with England last week.
