MATCH PREVIEW

Predicted Tottenham Line Up To Face Liverpool – Alderweireld Starts, Lamela And Son Miss Out

Published

on

The Premier League returns with a big clash on Saturday. Tottenham travel to Anfield and are set to face Liverpool. Spurs are five points behind Leicester who lead the Premier League table and with only seven games remaining for both teams, every battle becomes crucial.

Spurs did win their last game against Bournemouth but playing against Liverpool will be a tougher task. The Reds will be smarting with their 3-2 defeat at the hands of Southampton in the last game and will be looking to dent Spurs’ title charge.

The last time these two met was in Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge of Liverpool and that ended in a stalemate. The big worry for Tottenham could be with the illness of Toby Alderweireld, the Belgian has been a mainstay since the injury of Jan Vertonghen.

With each game becoming crucial, we predict the starting lineup for the team from London.

Hugo Lloris

The French goalkeeper has to start for Tottenham, no two ways about it. He kept a clean sheet in his last game and would be looking to do the same against Liverpool.

Kyle Walker

The right-back has been the best in the Premier League this season and Tottenham cannot think of playing Trippier in his place in this important game.

Toby Alderweireld

Alderweireld might be carrying an illness but he needs to play for Tottenham. Spurs cannot try Eric Dier at the back as that plan failed spectacularly recently and the likelihood of playing Alderweireld is high and as per reports from ESPN, the player is fit.

Kevin Wimmer

Wimmer has to start the game as Tottenham don’t really have any other option. The likes of Daniel Sturridge could be a huge problem for the central defender.

Danny Rose

The English left-back has had an excellent season so far and should continue as the left-back in this game as well.

Mousa Dembele

The Belgian midfielder has become one of the most important players for Tottenham this season and he must play against Liverpool.

Eric Dier

The English midfielder will have a tough time against Emre Can in midfield and this could be a battle worth seeing.

Nacer Chadli

Erik Lamela could be a big loss for Tottenham and Chadli should take his place in the starting lineup. He might not have had the best season so far but this could be his chance to show how important he is for Spurs.

Christian Eriksen

The Danish midfielder could be an important player in the run-up for the title and his ability on the ball could make the difference in this game.

Dele Alli

The youngster did pretty well for England in the recent international break and would be looking to continue his fine form for his club side.

Harry Kane

Harry Kane has been amongst the goals once again and he would be looking to score against Liverpool to give Tottenham a fighting chance in the Premier League race.
