Spurs are on a roll this season under their new manager and their next match in the Premier League will be against Liverpool, at home.

Last weekend, they went toe to toe with North London rivals Arsenal and if Postecoglou’s players can maintain the same rhythm and intensity then Liverpool will have a proper fight on their hands.

After six matches, Tottenham are fourth on the league table with 16 points and if they can beat Liverpool then no one can discredit Spurs and their potential to become title contenders this season.

Spurs are just two points behind Liverpool and as weird as it might sound, Liverpool are yet to beat at their new stadium so the odds are slightly in favour of the home team. Tottenham are one of the four teams who are yet to lose a league game this season and the fans will be hoping this record remains intact because even a draw won’t be a bad idea for the Lilywhites.

Tottenham Hotspur team news and injuries:

Summer signing Brennan Johnson started on the left wing in the North London Derby but he sustained a muscle injury in that match. Thankfully, the injury is not serious but he will not be available for the Liverpool clash.

James Maddison and Heung-Min Son were also withdrawn early on last Sunday but Ange Postecoglou has confirmed that their taking off was just a precaution and they are in contention to start at the weekend.

The manager has told the press: “Madders and Sonny trained today but we will see they how they pull up from training but they both got through everything we needed them to get through, but it will depend on how they pull up.”

Johnson joins a really long injury list which includes the likes of Bryan Gill, Perisic, Sessegnon and Lo Celso. With so many players out injured, Postecoglou does not have the room to make too many changes to his starting line up.

Johnson’s muscle injury means Manor Solomon will come into the first XI, out on the left wing but apart from that the same players who played vs Arsenal will hold onto their position.

Richarlison is the backup forward under the new Spurs boss which means the Brazilian international will come on as a sub in the second half.

Spurs predicted line up vs Liverpool:

Predicted Starting XI(4-2-3-1): Vicario; Udogie, Van de Ven, Romero, Porro; Bissouma, Sarr; Solomon, Maddison, Kulusevski; Son.
