Liverpool knows that despite Tottenham stealing two points from Manchester United, their chances of finishing in the top four are extremely slim going into their upcoming clash with Tottenham at Anfield
Even if the Reds win today, they will only be four points behind the Red Devils, who will have two games in hand to make up a 10-point deficit.
Still, the possibility exists. With six games remaining on the league schedule, Europa League football remains a viable and achievable option for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Most fans will be disappointed with this consolation prize, but the prospect of no European football at all for a club of Liverpool’s stature is unthinkable.
Alisson Becker will start again, with Ibrahima Konate likely to return to the backline alongside Virgil van Dijk following his precautionary absence from the first-team.
Following the 2-1 win over West Ham, we expect Curtis Jones, Jordan Henderson, and Fabinho to remain the preferred midfield three.
We don’t see any changes at the top, either, with Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo, and Mo Salah.
