Predicted Tottenham Line-up To Face Liverpool In The Premier League

Tottenham will welcome Liverpool to the Wembley stadium for a mouth-watering Premier League clash on Sunday. Spurs have not suffered a defeat across all competitions since the end of August, and will be keen on maintaining that record, especially after restricting Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu.

With Harry Kane in lethal form, Spurs are likely to punish a wasteful Liverpool defence. Tottenham will certainly not abandon their aggressive approach against the Reds, and it will be interesting to see how these two teams fare against each other.

Team News

There are doubts over Ben Davies, who continues to recover from illness, which could mean Danny Rose coming in to reclaim his spot. The left-back did feature for a few minutes against Real Madrid and he could be back in the squad on Sunday.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is doubtful after suffering a concussion against Bournemouth, while Mousa Dembele is expected to face a late fitness test. The midfielder should feature, however. Erik Lamela and Victor Wanyama will sit this one out but both are expected to be back soon.

Here’s how Tottenham might line up against Liverpool:

Manager: Mauricio Pochettino

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Hugo Lloris (GK)

Lloris has been the backbone behind a resilient Tottenham defence ever since the season began and he should be in top form for Spurs against Liverpool.

Hugo Lloris

Kieran Trippier (RB)

Trippier has been solid for Spurs and should assume the right-back role against the Reds.

Toby Alderweireld (CB)

The centre-back should take up his usual role and he will be tasked with keeping the Liverpool attackers at bay.

Davinson Sanchez (CB)

Sanchez may not have had the best of starts but he has shown promising signs of improvement. He should partner Alderweireld at the heart of Spurs’ defence.

Jan Vertonghen (LB)

The defender is likely to put up fort in the left-back area since Ben Davies is unavailable. Pochettino is likely to wait for a little more time before starting Danny Rose.

Eric Dier

Eric Dier (DM)

Much of Spurs’ good fortune has been because of Dier and the player will have to battle the likes of Emre Can to establish control in the midfield.

Harry Winks (CM)

With Dembele facing a late fitness test to start, expect Pochettino to stick with the remarkable Harry Winks in central midfield.

Christian Eriksen (RW)

The player has been crucial at orchestrating attacks for Spurs and should be keen on taking full advantage of a leaky Liverpool defence.

Dele Alli (CAM)

Alli continues to be a key figure for Spurs and has been doing quite well playing behind Harry Kane. Should start this crucial fixture.

Harry Kane

Son Heung-min (LW)

Son is likely to be deployed in the left-wing area and this will be an important match for him to show his impact.

Harry Kane (ST)

The man of the hour, Harry Kane will take up his usual duties in leading the line for Spurs and is expected to get his name once or twice on the score sheet.

Lamela stars: Player ratings from Tottenham’s 2-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion

Published

on

Tottenham got back to winning ways after three successive defeats, thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Erik Lamela.

Glenn Murray handled the ball late in the first half which allowed Kane to score from the spot. The home team came at us with all they had in the second half and Paulo Gazzaniga pulled off a great save before Danny Rose crossed in for Lamela to slot in our second.

Anthony Knockaert pulled one back in stoppage time to make it a nervous last minute or so but we held on for all three points.

There were a few heroes on the pitch today and here are the player ratings from the game.

Paulo Gazzaniga – 6.5/10

The youngster did pretty well and made one good save to deny Knockaert. He couldn’t do much regarding the goal he conceded.

Kieran Trippier – 6/10

Trippier didn’t have the greatest time as he struggled a bit and even got a yellow card for a needless foul.

Toby Alderweireld – 7.5/10

The Belgian had a great chance to score early on and did a great job at keeping things tight for Spurs.

Jan Vertonghen – 7/10

Vertonghen didn’t have a lot to do at the back but he helped us to an important win in the final few minutes of the game.

Danny Rose – 7/10

Rose got the assist for the second goal but didn’t have the greatest of games for us. The Englishman should have done better for the goal we conceded.

Eric Dier – 5.5/10

This was another poor performance from the Englishman as he kept on making the wrong passes and losing possession.

Mousa Dembele – 7/10

The Belgian had a decent outing as his passing was good and kept things ticking for Spurs in the middle of the park.

Son Heung-min – 6/10

This was a quiet outing for the South Korean and he should have done more to help Spurs get all three points.

Christian Eriksen – 6/10

Another player who seemed to be out of touch was Eriksen. He must do a lot more if he is to keep his place in the team.

Lucas Moura – 6.5/10

The Brazilian tried to do things but they weren’t coming off. He did have a role in the second goal and was later subbed by Dele Alli.

Harry Kane – 6.5/10

Kane scored the penalty but couldn’t get another shot away as Brighton did well at keeping him quiet.

Substitutes

Erik Lamela – 7.5/10

The Argentine changed things as he provided an attacking outlet. He did well for the goal and maybe should start more games.

Dele Alli – N/A

The Englishman didn’t have a lot of time to make a difference to the game.

“We need this man in our team” – Some Spurs fans want 21-year-old Lyon midfield tank to join club

Published

on

Tanguy Ndombele was linked with a move to Tottenham in the summer, as per Sky Sports. The Lyon midfielder is a quality destroyer in the middle of the park and was at it again last night.

The French side played Manchester City and came out 2-1 winners at the Etihad. While Nabil Fekir starred in the attack, Ndombele was immense in the midfield and did his bit for Lyon.

The 21-year-old Frenchman has played five times for the Ligue 1 club this season and his performance in the Champions League caught the eye of a few Tottenham fans.

Spurs didn’t buy a single player in the offseason and have struggled in recent times, losing their last three games. Ndombele might not help us find the back of the net but he surely can keep the midfield from being overrun.

Some Spurs fans were quick to suggest we needed the 21-year-old while some were irate as to why we didn’t add to the midfield in the summer.

“Can I sell mine back”, “God help us” – Some Tottenham fans are dreading facing this club at Wembley

Tottenham’s Twitter account certainly know how to rile up some of the fans. We just came off a third defeat in a row but the team decided to give an update on the tickets being sold out for the Barcelona game.

We took the lead against Inter and should have wrapped up the three points by managing the game in the final few minutes. Instead, Tottenham allowed the Italians a chance back in the game, thanks to a wonder goal from Mauro Icardi. Subsequently, the players fell asleep defending a corner in the last seconds of the match.

The Catalans will face Spurs at Wembley on 3rd October but we first need to get our season back on track.

Losses against Watford and Liverpool have pushed us six points behind the leaders in the Premier League. Meanwhile, Inter Milan, Barcelona and PSV Eindhoven don’t make for easy reading in our Champions League group.

Our next game is against Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League but some of our fans weren’t confident of a quality showing when the Catalans pay a visit.
