Roberto Firmino could be set to replace Diogo Jota while James Milner and Naby Keita could start when Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool will hope to continue their winning streak and keep up the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City when they travel to London to take on Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday evening.
Leading up to the game, the Reds have no new injury concerns. However, they will again be without Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk and Curtis Jones, who tested positive for coronavirus earlier in the week and missed the Newcastle United clash.
Addressing the trio in his pre-match presser, manager Jurgen Klopp said: “No, it’s not confirmed yet. It’s an ongoing process, let me say it like this, but they are not there. They are fine apart from that. In this moment, nobody else [is] positive but it’s pretty early still and the players come a bit later, so we will see.”
Apart from the trio mentioned above, Liverpool will also be without Adrian, Nathaniel Phillips and Harvey Elliott for the trip to Tottenham, while Divock Origi is also a major doubt. Klopp could look to rotate some of his players in the upcoming matches with the cramped fixture schedule in the festive period.
However, no changes are expected at the back, with Alisson Becker continuing in goal, shielded by the backline comprising Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate and Andrew Robertson. Joe Gomez will also be hoping to get some minutes during this busy period but is unlikely to feature against the north Londoners.
As for the midfield department, there could be a couple of changes on the cards, with Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain likely to make way for the pair of Naby Keita and James Milner, both of whom made a substitute appearance in the win against Newcastle United. Jordan Henderson should keep his place at the base of the three-man midfield in the absence of Fabinho.
Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in a goal in each of his last 15 Premier League appearances and is a certain starter for Liverpool on the right flank in the attacking third. Sadio Mane should continue to feature on the opposite wing. But Klopp could opt to bring Roberto Firmino into the lineup on Sunday ahead of Diogo Jota, owing to the Brazilian’s impressive recent record against Tottenham.
Liverpool Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Konate, Robertson, Keita, Henderson, Milner, Salah, Firmino, Mane.
