Liverpool travel to White Hart Lane this weekend for their clash against Tottenham in the Premier League, with this being the first match for newly appointed boss, Jurgen Klopp.
The Spurs will start the game in a better form than their counterparts, with them being the only side not to have lost since the opening weekend of the campaign.
Currently only one point separates the two on the table, though the home side are the favorites for the game due to their better form.
The Reds have won just one of their last nine away league games. They will be hoping that the appointment of Klopp will change that, as Klopp looks to be the first Liverpool manager since Kenny Dalglish in 1985 to begin his Anfield reign with a victory.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be without midfielders Ryan Mason (knee) and Nabil Bentaleb (ankle/foot).
Striker Son Heung-min is also ruled out due to a foot problem.
Tottenham expect left-back Danny Rose to be back for the game as he recovers from a wrist problem.
However, Eric Dier serves a one-match ban after attaining five yellow cards in the League.
Much to Liverpool’s dismay, pair Joe Gomez and Danny Ings, both suffering from anterior cruciate ligament injuries, will be sidelined, and could possibly be out for the rest of the season.
Forwards Christian Benteke, who suffers from a hamstring problem, and Roberto Firmino, suffering from a back problem, will be unavailable.
Adding to the long list of injuries, Dejan Lovren is also ruled out due to an ankle problem, though he has returned to training. Whereas, captain Jordan Henderson and defender Jon Flanagan remain long term absentees.
However, Liverpool can expect playmaker Philippe Coutinho to return to action following a groin injury.
Victory would see Liverpool record six consecutive league wins against Tottenham for the first time in their history.
The last time Spurs lost six consecutive games against the same Premier League opponent was against Newcastle United between 2006 and 2008.
Tottenham’s last five Premier League home defeats have all been by a one goal margin; the last team to win by more at White Hart Lane were Liverpool (3-0 in August 2014).
