Liverpool vs. Tottenham: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool will be looking to record their first league win of 2017 when they host second placed Tottenham in Saturday’s evening game.

Liverpool’s poor form continued as they were beaten away at Hull City last time out.

It was the same old story for Jurgen Klopp’s men this year, as defensively they were woeful, conceding another two goals.

Spurs cemented second with a narrow success over Middlesbrough at White Hart Lane.

Harry Kane’s second half penalty was the difference as they seized upon dropped points by Liverpool and Arsenal.

Match history
The meeting between the pair earlier in the season finished 1-1, with Danny Rose’s strike cancelling out a James Milner penalty.

Liverpool have an excellent recent record against Tottenham, winning five of the last eight meetings, scoring 20 goals in the process.

Team news
Dejan Lovren is a doubt for the hosts, but should be fit to start after missing the loss at Hull City.

Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius will battle it out to start here after both continued to make mistakes this term.

Erik Lamela is likely to be out once again for the visitors as he recovers from a hip issue.

Jan Vertonghen and Danny Rose are also absent, meaning Eric Dier will start in central defence.

Expected starting XI’s
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet; Clyne, Lovren, Matip, Milner; Wijnaldum, Henderson, Lallana; Mane, Firmino, Coutinho
Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris; Walker, Alderweireld, Dier, Davies; Wanyama, Dembele; Eriksen, Alli, Son; Kane
