£20m man to return: Predicted Liverpool line-up to play Tottenham

Match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur to be played on Tuesday 10th February 2015 at 20:00. Venue: Anfield, Liverpool.

Liverpool welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Anfield on Tuesday evening for another huge Premier League encounter.

Just two places and four points separate the two sides in the table, with the race for a Champions League spot impossible to call at this stage.

Tottenham will be buzzing following their 2-1 win in Saturday’s North London derby while Liverpool will have been disappointed not to get all three points against Everton a few hours later.

A win for Liverpool could see them go level on points with Arsenal while it would cut the gap between them and Spurs to a single point with plenty of football still to be played.

In team news, Brad Jones is out with a thigh injury while Jon Flanagan is not yet fit to return. Kolo Toure has a slim chance of playing due to his previous participation in the Africa Cup of Nations and his subsequent fatigue.

Raheem Sterling, Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana all have a 75 per cent chance of being fit for this game, but midfielder Lucas Leiva has less chance of recovering from a groin injury.

Youngster Jordan Rossiter is definitely out with an ankle injury.

With all that in mind, here is the side we predict Liverpool will opt for on Tuesday evening, including a return for £20million summer signing Lazar Markovic, who was an unused substitute against the Toffees.

Predicted Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Sakho, Markovic, Moreno, Gerrard, Henderson, Coutinho, Sterling, Sturridge
