Confirmed: Liverpool v Tottenham lineups

Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway 2

Here are the line-ups as Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield this evening.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers will want a fast start in an intimidating atmosphere from his players at Anfield. It will be interesting to see how he sets his side up and how they approach the match against a very in form team at the moment. Liverpool are chasing Spurs in the race for the top four, but they can close the gap on the North Londoners to just one point with a win. Liverpool have a better defensive record so far this season and can use that to their advantage.

Tottenham Hotspur are on a good run of form and will be full of confidence after seeing off Arsenal in their last game. Mauricio Pochettino will be aware of the need for his side to put pressure on the teams above them in the table. He’ll also be aware of the importance of the game for players like Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen who will be looking to keep their momentum intact. Spurs can make a real statement of intent if they play well and see off Liverpool this evening.
