Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk have formed a formidable pairing at the centre of defence, there will be no experimenting with this on an important match at Wembley Stadium. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson were sensational last season, and so far in this one as well. The youngsters will likely start as full-backs.

James Milner has been a favourite in the eyes of Jurgen Klopp. The Englishman has one of the all-time top assist records in the Premier League, and will be a likely candidate at defensive midfield.

Naby Keita is proving to be worth every penny spent on him, and has been vital to Liverpool this time out. The Guinean’s expertise will come into play against Spurs, with Jordan Henderson probably looking ready to feature next to him.

Liverpool’s attacking department has been firing this season. Sadio Mane will play on the left wing and hope to perform excellently in yet another big clash.

Roberto Firmino got off the mark for the season against Leicester City two weeks ago and scored against El Salvador on international duty. He is the favourite to play as striker.

Meanwhile, Mo Salah has been functional if not impressive, and has not been anywhere close to last season's heroics. Yet he could pop up anytime and do wonders, turning up on important days.
