Liverpool face a test of their early season form as they travel to north London to take on fellow unbeaten Tottenham on Saturday afternoon, in a game that could see them emerge as true title contenders should they take all three points.
The Reds have enjoyed an excellent start to the season, and sit 2nd in the Premier League just two points behind last season’s Champions Manchester City.
Though it has not always been the most free-flowing football, the summer revamp in midfield appears to have worked for Jurgen Klopp’s side, and they have only dropped points once so far this campaign, in the season opener against Chelsea.
They face a Spurs side who are also unbeaten, and came from behind twice at the Emirates Stadium to snatch a draw against Arsenal in their most recent fixture. With confidence high, they will be hoping that they can continue their impressive run at the expense of Klopp’s outfit.
Read on for how we expect Liverpool to line up, and the latest team news from Jurgen Klopp’s camp.
There remains doubt over Trent Alexander-Arnold’s fitness, with the defender having participated in light training with the side ahead of the win over Leicester City but not yet deemed fit enough to be part of the squad.
He will face a late fitness test to decide whether or not he will be fit enough to take his place on the right side of defence against the lilywhites, but should he fail to do so it is likely that Joe Gomez will once again be asked to deputise for his teammate.
The only other injury concern around the Liverpool camp is Thiago Alcantara, who is yet to make an appearance this season and is targetting a return after the October international break as he recovers from a groin injury.
With an otherwise full squad to choose from, Klopp has plenty of options in attack, but the form of Darwin Nunez could see him continue to start, while Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota may have to make do with spots on the bench.
