Tottenham take on Liverpool in what could be the clash of the weekend. The two clubs are separated by only three points but the Reds have a 100% win record after four games.
Spurs were beaten by Watford in the previous game but they must play well to get the better of Liverpool.
The Reds were comprehensively beaten by Spurs the last time they came to Wembley. And it would be great if we can repeat that performance on Saturday.
Spurs need to play their best XI to beat the Reds and here is our predicted line-up for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
Predicted Tottenham XI
Manager: Mauricio Pochettino
Michel Vorm (GK)
Lloris missed the last game and didn’t participate in the international break due to an injury. Thus, Vorm should continue between the sticks against the Reds.
Davinson Sanchez (CB)
Sanchez has been a quality signing for us since joining from Ajax and he must be smart to avoid getting exploited by the Liverpool defence.
Toby Alderweireld (CB)
The Belgian seems to be enjoying his football at Spurs and should start alongside his countryman.
Jan Vertonghen (CB)
Vertonghen is one of the best defenders in the world and the former Ajax star will be up against one of the best attacks in the league.
Kieran Trippier (RWB)
Trippier’s stock is rising with every game and the Englishman will be an important outlet for our attack against Liverpool.
Eric Dier (CM)
The English midfielder would have a crucial role to play in stifling Liverpool’s midfield. Dier must snuff out the likes of Jordan Henderson and James Milner – something he is more than capable of doing.
Christian Eriksen (CM)
The Danish star hasn’t hit the heights of last season but we need him to be at his best to beat Liverpool.
Son Heung-min (CM)
Alli was another player that picked up a knock while on international duty and with Son returning to the squad, we should see the South Korean start.
Danny Rose (LWB)
Rose was a star for England in their game against Switzerland and Mauricio Pochettino must play the Englishman on Saturday ahead of Ben Davies.
Harry Kane (ST)
Kane needs to find his scoring boots after a couple of goals in four games. However, he usually finds his feet in September and was a thorn for the Reds defence last season.
Lucas Moura (ST)
The Brazilian has been in fine form since the start of the season and hopefully, he will score against the Reds on Saturday.
Tottenham interested in £44m January move for Barcelona starlet
Malcom joined Barcelona at the start of the season but has featured just twice for the Catalan giants. He has played 25 minutes for the Blaugrana this season, with the Brazilian being unable to break into a playing XI featuring the likes of Ousmane Dembele, Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho.
The winger had a sensational season in the Ligue 1 before moving to the La Liga, scoring 12 goals and providing 7 assists in 35 league appearances. He is surely a quality player whose potential is not being utilized in Spain.
Considering the quality in our squad and also the 21-year-old Barca winger’s talent, it could be a perfect match. Malcom would add some incredible depth to our squad and Pochettino must make a move in January.
Though £44m seems steep, it could be a gamble worth taking as the young star has all the tools required to take the Premier League by storm with more game time.
Whether or not Barcelona would let go of a player they signed just a few months back remains to be seen but this is a move we must make to bolster our attacking reinforcements in January.
After the quiet summer window, a statement signing in January would go a long way in conveying a message to our rivals.
[Video] This latest aerial video of Tottenham’s $1bn new stadium is absolutely wonderful
YouTuber Mr AV (h/t Football.London) has posted a new high-definition video of our club’s stunning new $1bn stadium. The footage provides us with a clear picture of how much work has been done in terms of the construction.
The video also showed the soon-to-be-opened club megastore and the Tottenham Museum. The aerial footage of the new stadium was wonderful as it also showed the overall structure of the stadium and the single-tier 17,500-seater south stand. The video also shows the area where the giant golden cockerel will sit above that stand.
It is not known as to when the stadium would be available for use but it looks like the construction is progressing at a reasonable rate.
It was indeed a disappointment when it was decided by the club hierarchy that we would be playing our home games at Wembley this season but that would all change when the stadium is unveiled officially. The construction has taken quite a bit of time and it will be an exciting phase when the work is completed.
The new stadium would surely serve as a boost to the entire club and it would wipe out any negativity surrounding Tottenham. The club too have been keeping us updated on the progress regarding the stadium and we’ll have to wait to see what the club say next regarding the completion of the stadium work.
“Shushing the racists, hands down”: Some Tottenham fans relive the memories as club shares a video of wonder goals against West Ham
Tottenham are set to face West Ham on Saturday and the club shared a video featuring some of the best goals we have scored against the Hammers in the past.
The video featured some memorable and stunning strikes from the likes of Gareth Bale, Son Heung-min, Jermain Defoe and Dimitar Berbatov.
Tottenham’s past 8 meetings with West Ham has seen 28 goals being scored, at an average of 3.5 per game, hence, it is logical that the club has shared a video of some great goals from the past. The game on Saturday presents us with a chance to keep the pressure on the teams above us and we shouldn’t drop points.
The video was a trip down the memory lane and the fans had a say on it. The Tottenham faithful reacted to the video on Twitter and a lot of them had some nice things to say.
Defoe’s run through their entire team is my fav

The first Bale one I think.
But there’s a message in this video – shots from outside the box (in some cases WAY outside) seem like a good way to beat West Ham.
