CONFIRMED: Liverpool & Tottenham line-ups

Here is how Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur will line up for this afternoon’s match at Anfield:

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Sturridge, Suarez

Subs: Jones, Allen, Aspas, Sakho, Lucas, Cissokho, Moses

Tottenham Hotspur starting XI: Lloris, Naughton, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Rose, Bentaleb, Sigurdsson, Lennon, Chadli, Eriksen, Soldado

Subs: Friedel, Dawson, Dembele, Sandro, Townsend, Winks, Kane

What a weekend it has been for Liverpool…and they have not even played yet! But the dropped points for Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal will mean little if Brendan Rodgers’ side do not win against Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.

Victory for the Reds will see them go two points clear at the top of the Premier League table. But Spurs have ambitions of their own and it will not be easy to get the better of Tim Sherwood’s side.

And yet Tottenham fans hoping for a happy Mothers’ Day should cast a quick eye over this statistic: The Lilywhites have one just six of their 70 league games at Anfield. And with Rodgers’ side on the back of a seven-game winning-streak, could they finish the day top of a very impressive pile?

What do you think the result will be this afternoon?
