Mauricio Pochettino to make 1 key change – Strongest 3-1-4-2 Tottenham XI to face Liverpool

Predicted Tottenham line-up to face Liverpool in the Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur were unable to hold onto their lead against a vibrant Watford side that came from behind to win the game 2-1 in the previous gameweek. Spurs have otherwise looked confident under Mauricio Pochettino.

The Lilywhites will be gearing up for their clash with leaders Liverpool, who are yet to lose a single game this season. Jurgen Klopp’s men have conceded just 1 goal and have looked electric going forward this season. It will surely be an entertaining game.

Team News

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and midfielder Dele Alli are both major doubts for the game. Erik Lamela will also be sidelined with an injury with Vincent Janssen out long-term. Pochettino still possesses a flurry of options to deploy against the Reds this weekend.

Probable Tottenham Hotspur XI

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Formation: 3-1-4-2

Michel Vorm (GK)

Lloris missed the last game through injury and Vorm took his place in goal. The Dutchman should start this game as well.

Toby Alderweireld (RCB)

Alderweireld has looked calm and commanding at the back for Spurs this season. The Belgian was exceptional in the win against Manchester United.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

The Colombian is definitely the future of Tottenham’s defence. Since his arrival, he has seamlessly transitioned himself into Pochettino’s plans.

Jan Vertonghen (LCB)

One of the most experienced defenders in the league, Vertonghen will complete the 3-man backline for Spurs in this game.

Jan Vertonghen

Mousa Dembele (CDM)

Mousa Dembele is one the most dogged midfielders in the league. He assures stability and security in the middle of the park.

Kieran Trippier (RWB)

There aren’t a lot of right-backs in the league who can whip the ball in like Trippier. He is on set-piece duty as well after proving his ability from dead-ball situations.

Christian Eriksen (RCM)

Eriksen is yet to sparkle in the league this season but there’s no doubt the Dane is one of the most crucial members in this squad.

Eric Dier (LCM)

Dier should take Alli’s place in the squad for this game. He may lack Alli’s offensive prowess and tenacity but Dier is a reliable option to have.

Ben Davies (LWB)

Davies has nailed down the left-back/wing-back spot and made it his own. The former Swansea City man is superb in defending and exciting going forward.

Lucas Moura (SS)

The Brazilian continues to shine after being handed a second striker role by Mauricio Pochettino this season. Should start.

Harry Kane (ST)

Kane loves a big challenge and that’s why there’s every chance he’ll find the net against Liverpool.
