Liverpool will welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield on Sunday, hoping to take all three points. The Reds’ narrow 2-1 win over West Ham United helped them climb the league table
Given the current Premier League table, with the Lilywhites earning only one point in their previous match and Aston Villa catching up with them, the Anfield club has a genuine chance to claim fifth place in the standings, despite having played one game fewer.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to stick with the 4-3-3 formation and make only minor changes for this match. While Alisson looks to operate, Cody Gapko will continue to lead the charge against the opposition.
4-3-3 Predicted Liverpool XI vs Tottenham Hotspur
Alisson Becker will continue to play in goal for the Merseyside giants despite conceding one goal in his last league appearance. Joel Matip will play alongside Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s defense this weekend as they attempt to prevent Tottenham from scoring.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will continue to play right back, while Andrew Robertson will play left back. Both will have to defend their lines well and create good scoring chances from wide areas.
Kostas Tsimikas and Joe Gomez will be available for selection on the bench, providing defensive cover.
Liverpool’s midfield will be made up of Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, and Curtis Jones as they look to establish their superiority over the opposition in the center of the park.
Henderson and Jones must work together to create a few promising chances for the Reds in the final third.
Thiago Alcantara will be named to the bench and could enter the game in the second half if Klopp decides to use his services.
Diogo Jota will remain as the left-sided wide player, while Mohamed Salah will look to contribute on the right flank.
Cody Gakpo, as previously stated, will lead the charge for the Merseyside club in the final third. The Dutch forward must find a way to frustrate the North London defenders.
Darwin Nunez will be available for selection from the bench as he awaits his opportunity to shine in the game’s closing stages if needed.
