Liverpool vs Tottenham lineups Preview team news: Jurgen Klopp aims for victory with strongest lineup, Will Mohamed Salah start after spat with Klopp…



Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are set to clash in a highly anticipated Premier League match at Anfield.


This game holds significant importance for both teams, as Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp nears the end of his successful tenure at the club.


However, Liverpool’s recent performances have been lackluster, with defeats in the FA Cup and Europa League, as well as a string of disappointing results in the Premier League.


On the other hand, Tottenham, led by Ange Postecoglou, are striving to secure a spot in the Champions League for the upcoming season. They currently sit seven points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa, but with a game in hand.


Despite their aspirations, Tottenham has faced setbacks, including a loss to Arsenal in the North London derby and a defeat against Chelsea. Both teams will be eager to bounce back and claim victory in this crucial encounter.


The Sporting News analyzes the potential lineups for both Liverpool and Tottenham ahead of their upcoming match on Sunday, attempting to forecast the formation and players that each team might field.


Liverpool vs Tottenham: Possible lineups and team updates.


All eyes will be on Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, as he decides whether to include Mohamed Salah in the starting lineup following a recent touchline incident during their last game against West Ham, which ended in a 2-2 draw.


Despite Salah’s impressive goal-scoring record this season, he has been struggling with form lately and was initially benched in the previous match before coming on as a substitute in the 79th minute.


There are positive signs regarding the fitness of key players such as Virgil Van Dijk, Conor Bradley, and Cody Gakpo. However, Diogo Jota and Stefan Bajcetic might not be ready to feature yet, with the latter still recovering from a long-term injury.


Joel Matip, Ben Doak, and Thiago Alcantara have been ruled out for the season.


Liverpool’s expected starting lineup in a 4-3-3 formation from right to left includes Alisson (GK), Alexander-Arnold, Quansah, Van Dijk, Robertson, Endo, Mac Allister, Gravenberch, Salah, Gakpo, and Diaz.


Liverpool’s substitutes are yet to be confirmed.


Fraser Forster, Manor Solomon, and Ryan Sessegnon are still long-term absentees for Spurs.


After losing Destiny Udogie for the season, Ange Postecoglou faces another blow with Ben Davies (calf) and Timo Werner (hamstring) also ruled out for the rest of the campaign.


James Maddison was surprisingly benched against Chelsea due to his recent form, as Postecoglou decided to give him a break from the starting lineup.


The attacking lineup is expected to see the return of the England international in the No. 10 role, while Son Heung-min and Richarlison will be responsible for making penetrating runs to take advantage of Liverpool’s high defensive line.


Tottenham’s projected starting eleven in a 4-2-3-1 formation from right to left: Vicario (GK) — Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Bissouma — Bentancur, Sarr — Kulusevski, Maddison, Son — Richarlison.
