Liverpool’s fourth away fixture in a row takes them to Tottenham Hotspur, buoyed by their 1-0 win over Crystal Palace last week.

Liverpool’s frantic 4-3 win at Arsenal on the first day of the season was followed by a dismal 2-0 defeat to Burnley last week, while Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs have taken four points from their opening two Premier League games.

For today’s match, Tottenham make just one change from the side that beat Palace last Saturday.


Dele Alli comes back into the side, taking the place of forward Vincent Janssen.

Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile makes some changes of his own from the Liverpool side that beat Burton Albion 5-0 in the EFL Cup in midweek, but surprise starter Sadio Mané keeps his place in attack.

Emre Can has not recovered in time to play in this match, Georginio Wijnaldum returns to the starting eleven. Joel Matip makes his Premier League debut, keeping his place in midweek to partner Dejan Lovren in defence.
