There’s no easing out of the international break for Liverpool this weekend as the Reds travel to London to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.
Liverpool were hammered 4-1 last season in the corresponding fixture and they’ll be looking for revenge this time around.
The Reds go into the game having won all four of their opening league games and they’ll be looking to make it five on the spin.
Here’s the XI that I think Jurgen Klopp will select for the game.
Alisson made a huge error in his last game for Liverpool but thankfully it didn’t cost any points. He’ll be hoping for a quieter performance this time around.
RB: Trent Alexander-Arnold
Trent Alexander-Arnold seemingly came through his England appearance unscathed, so I expect him to get the nod again at right-back.
CB: Joe Gomez
Joe Gomez was outstanding against Leicester and he’ll need to be on his game again as he faces off against Harry Kane.
CB: Virgil van Dijk
Liverpool’s player of the month for August will be hoping to continue his fine run of form alongside Gomez.
LB: Andy Robertson
The new captain of Scotland should be full of confidence going into this game.
CM: Jordan Henderson
Henderson wasn’t great against Leicester but I expect him to keep his place at the base of Liverpool’s midfield.
CM: James Milner
I think Klopp will want Milner in from the start at Wembley as his aggressiveness and work rate will be key to stopping by Spurs dominating the midfield.
CM: Naby Keita
Keita looked good when he came off the bench at the King Power Stadium. He’ll be asked to be the man to link Liverpool’s midfield to the attack.
RW: Mohamed Salah
Mo Salah scored what turned out to be little more than a consolation goal in this fixture last year. He’ll be looking to find the back of the net again, but hopefully in a winning cause.
LW: Sadio Mane
Mane has been Liverpool’s best forward player this season and he’ll be hoping to continue his recent goal scoring form.
CF: Roberto Firmino
An early flight home from international duty means Firmino should be fit to start against Tottenham.
