Spurs have struggled and defeats to Manchester United and Newcastle have set them back in recent weeks. However, they showed real fighting spirit and comeback victories against Bournemouth and Marseille put them in their rightful place with two league games before the World Cup break. Conte’s men have been losing very hard in games and this will likely be their plan again, especially with Richarlison and Heung Min Son out of action and Dejan Kulusevski close to returning. Liverpool are still plagued by defensive problems and have been plagued by malaise all season. The usual level of energy just isn’t there and Klopp is trying to change his team as often as possible, but the Reds also have a backlog of injuries.
Uniform players to keep an eye on
Harry Kane is having a sensational season for the Spurs and will be their main player as three other forwards in the Spurs rotation are injured. Pierre-Emile Hoybjerg and Rodrigo Bentancourt are also playing well and have scored the winning goals in the last two games. Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has scored in each of his last three games and Darwin Nunes has scored five in his last seven as they do their best to give Liverpool something to hold on to.
Tottenham team news, injuries, squad options
The Spurs have confirmed that Son Heung Min will be undergoing surgery for a fractured eye socket and the South Korean superstar will have to look forward to see if he can play in the World Cup. Kulusevski could return while Richarlison is out and Christian Romero is also recovering from injury and will not be available. All of this means that Lucas Moura and Brian Gil can support Harry Kane in attack.
Liverpool team news, injuries, squad options
Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Naby Keita, Arthur Melo and James Milner are out, while Joel Matip remains in question. Klopp is likely to release Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson, Darwin Nunez and Harvey Elliott after the quartet were on the bench ahead of the midweek win over Napoli.
