🗞️ Team News: Tottenham Hotspur
Alfie Whiteman (Ankle Injury), Ryan Sessegnon (Surgery), Giovani Lo Celso (Hamstring Injury), Ivan Perisic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Bryan Gil (Pubitis) and Rodrigo Bentancur (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t be available for Tottenham Hotspur manager Ange Postecoglou.
It’s our opinion that Spurs should kick off with a 4-2-3-1 formation in the match, handing starts to Guglielmo Vicario, Pedro Porro, Cristian Romero, Micky van de Ven, Destiny Udogie, Yves Bissouma, Pape Sarr, Dejan Kulusevski, James Maddison, Heung-Min Son and Brennan Johnson.
ℹ️ Team News: Liverpool
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has multiple availability issues to deal with. Trent Alexander-Arnold (Hamstring Injury), Ibrahima Konaté (Muscle Injury) and Thiago (Fitness) can’t be considered.
We believe The Reds seem likely to make use of a 4-3-3 formation, choosing Alisson, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Dominik Szoboszlai, Alexis Mac Allister, Curtis Jones, Mohamed Salah, Darwin Núñez and Luis Díaz.
Our thinking is that Tottenham Hotspur are likely to find the net against this Liverpool outfit, but one goal may not quite be as many as they will have scored against them.
We’re therefore tipping a close game with a 1-2 win for Liverpool when the full-time whistle blows. We’ll have to see what happens.
