Tottenham Hotspur take on Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday looking to keep alive their hopes of finishing in the top four. Here is our predicted line-up.

Spurs boss Tim Sherwood is expected to make a few changes from the side that edged past Southampton 3-2 at White Hart Lane last Sunday.

Michael Dawson returned to the bench after recovering from a hamstring injury and is likely to come back in to the defence this weekend, with Younes Kaboul dropping out. Kyle Walker is still sidelined so Kyle Naughton is expected to continue at right-back, although Kaboul could play at full-back if required.

Sandro is also likely to return in midfield in place of Nabil Bentaleb while Mousa Dembele has been passed fit after being taken off at half time last weekend, so should start alongside the Brazilian.

Christian Eriksen is nailed on to start while Aaron Lennon could get the nod over Andros Townsend on the right wing. Paulinho is another who’s pushing for a recall and could start ahead of the likes of Nacer Chadli and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Sherwood is hopeful Emmanuel Adebayor will return after missing last weeks win with a cut heel, and if he’s passed fit he’ll replace Roberto Soldado up front.

Here’s the team I think will start:

    We could do without Naughton and replace him with Kaboul and do without Rose and replace him with no one in particular and play a 3 x diamond formation x 3 LLoris Kaboul Dawson Vertonghen Dembele Paulhino Sandro Eriksen Lennon Adebyor Sigurdssen , its without question that Naughton and Rose weaken the team .
