Liverpool Predicted XI vs Tottenham
Liverpool face Tottenham in a midweek fixture from the Premier League and the Reds will be looking to repeat their 3-0 win over Tottenham early on in the season. Liverpool would be looking to continue their unbeaten run of 8 games in the Premier League while Tottenham have been in great form themselves as they beat Arsenal 2-1 in their last game.
With Lucas being injured for a month, we predict the Liverpool line-up to face Tottenham in what is bound to be a brilliant game.
Simon Mignolet has more clean sheets in the Premier League than David De Gea, once that sinks into the system, we can safely say the goalkeeper has been in excellent form for Liverpool and should continue playing in goal unless he gets injured.
The young German defender has been one of Liverpool’s best players and should continue in the team, we are predicting he should play in defence but with Lucas being injured he could be shifted into midfield to play the defensive midfielder role.
Skrtel is the leader in Liverpool’s defence and should continue playing in the team, he will be looking to help in keeping a clean sheet against a good Tottenham attack.
The third player and probably the weakest link in the defence, Sakho does not look comfortable on the ball but he should get the nod ahead of Lovren.
With Lucas being injured, Liverpool would have to bring in another midfielder, while Gerrard might not be starting two games in 3 days, Allen would have to play out of his skin as he had a poor game against Everton.
The vice captain would probably shift into the midfield role and would do the job that Gerrard would do. Henderson had a quiet game against Everton and would be looking to make up for it.
The pacey left back would be playing as a wing back and while he has not wowed anyone, he is a dependable attacker and good enough to deal with the opposition.
Markovic might not have started the last few games but as the games keep on coming the Serbian would get a chance to play as a wing back and impress Rodgers to get a few more games under his belt.
Sterling did not have the best game against Everton but still was one of Liverpool’s best attackers, even if he is 50% fit he should start the game for the Reds.
Coutinho had an average outing for Liverpool and he was taken off but Coutinho can make a difference in a matter of seconds, so keeping him off the starting line-up does not make sense for Rodgers as he chases another victory to bring Liverpool closer to the Champions
Daniel Sturridge could make his return to the starting line-up after being on the bench for the last two games. With him being rested well, he could be unleashed to take on a Tottenham side who have been on the rise as well.
