Predicted Tottenham Lineup To Face Liverpool In The Premier League
Tottenham Hotspur would aim to leapfrog Chelsea as well as Liverpool, when they face the latter at Anfield on Sunday. Spurs produced a sparkling performance against Manchester United on Wednesday. An 11th-second strike from Christian Eriksen and an own goal from Phil Jones guided Spurs to a deserved 2-0 win over United at Wembley.
At the weekend, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will face Liverpool, who ran out as comfortable 3-0 winners against Huddersfield Town on Tuesday. Expect a mouthwatering contest as both the sides bid to cement their place in the top four.
Spurs were handed a number of injury boosts ahead of their encounter with United. Danny Rose has overcome his injury and was named on the bench. Toby Alderweireld continues his rehabilitation as he nears full fitness. Meanwhile, new signing Lucas Moura is expected to play a part against Liverpool.
Probable Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Hugo Lloris (GK)
Lloris made an excellent save at the near post to deny Romelu Lukaku on Wednesday. He is an undoubted starter against Liverpool.
Kieran Trippier (RB)
Much was questioned on how Trippier would cope with Alexis Sanchez or Anthony Martial after he was skinned by Manchester City’s Leroy Sane. Surprisingly, the England defender did very well and was a constant threat on the right-wing. His cross led to Phil Jones’ own goal.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
Sanchez was solid as a rock against United and should start at the weekend.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
Just like Sanchez, Vertonghen never gave much space for the United attackers to capitalise. However, should the FA visit the footages of him tussling with Ander Herrera, our defender could be in for a three-match ban.
Ben Davies (LB)
Davies was disciplined, composed and offered a threat from the left flank. Tested De Gea with a low shot from outside the box in the second half. While Rose has attained full fitness, I think Pochettino will stick with Davies against Liverpool.
Eric Dier (CM)
Dier was instrumental in breaking up United’s play whenever the visitors tried to threaten. Dier’s best position is in the midfield and not defence.
Mousa Dembele (CM)
He was back to his old self against United. Earned a yellow card for the team when he put Jesse Lingard on the floor but was really solid overall. The Belgian dominated Paul Pogba and co. with his strength, breaking up play with his relentlessness and aggression. A sure starter against Liverpool!
Dele Alli (RW)
Played his part in the first goal with his clever movement and was a constant threat throughout the game. He was lucky to have escaped with a yellow card for chopping down Alexis Sanchez. The England midfielder has looked more involved and influential in the recent few games.
Christian Eriksen (CAM)
Eriksen put in a man of the match performance, setting up the tone with a goal in just 11 seconds. He oozed class against United, caused them problems time and again and knitted Spurs’ play together with utmost calmness. The Dane showed why he is so vital for the club.
Heung-min Son (LW)
Son worked tirelessly on the left, got into some great positions and stung De Gea’s palms with a ripe shot. Looked selfish at times but no complaints as he has arguably been our best player in the last couple of months.
Harry Kane (ST)
Seeking a 100th Premier League goal, Kane was fantastic on the night and gave the United defenders all kinds of problems. He scored against Liverpool at Wembley in the 4-1 victory and given the rich vein of form he is in, chances are high that he would get his landmark 100th PL goal.
[Video] Amazing new time-lapse footage showcases pitch and seating areas of Tottenham’s new stadium
Tottenham’s new stadium is towards completion and a new time-lapse video from last week has been shared which highlights the final stages of work being done.
The video begins with a view of the exterior where cranes are working on one section of the structure. The next part features an aerial view of the entire stadium. The video shows construction being done throughout the night to get the venue ready as quickly as possible.
A clip from the video showcases a section where numerous glass panes are yet to be installed, however, a number of cranes and workers are on the job.
The pitch was installed a week ago and an interior shot displays the grass and the artificial pitch lighting. It is great to see that most of the seats are installed and the LED hoardings across the seating area of the stadium.
Hopefully, the venue will be completed quickly. Tottenham have spent a lot of time away from home with Wembley being used as a temporary ground. We even played a Carabao Cup game against Watford at Stadium MK.
“Star on and off the pitch” – Some Tottenham fans react to Spurs star’s hilarious dance
Lucas Moura seems to be enjoying his season with Tottenham. The Brazilian had a fantastic performance against Manchester United a few weeks ago and was even recalled to the Brazil squad during the recent international break.
The former PSG man has become a starter for Spurs and a recent video was shared by Moussa Sissoko of the Brazilian dancing.

Spurs beat West Ham in a tough London derby on Saturday and will need another quality performance against PSV Eindhoven in midweek.
Tottenham have lost their two Champions League group games this season, and we need to defeat the Dutch team to have any chance of making it into the next round.
Tottenham downplay interest in signing 25-year-old Colombian star
Tottenham have no plans of signing Wilmar Barrios from Boca Junior, sources have told ESPN. The Colombian international had a decent World Cup with the national side and was linked with a move to Spurs, according to the report.
Reports (h/t ESPN) suggested that we had agreed on personal terms with the 25-year-old’s representatives and were preparing a bid for the midfielder.
Spurs were the only club to not sign a player in the summer but the manager was open to signings in January.
The manager was quoted by ESPN as saying:
“In football you always need to think you can improve, and you need to try to improve your squad.
“We couldn’t sign [in the summer] for different circumstances, but we wanted to sign.
“Now January will come and we’re going to try to sign. I think it’s not only us — all the clubs and managers want to sign players, must refresh the squad.
“We need to try again in January or the summer if we want to move on the team and the club.”
Spurs are in a great position in the Premier League as we are just a couple of points behind the league leaders.
Hopefully, the right signings can help us push on this season and lead us to our first ever Premier League title.
