Confirmed Liverpool v Tottenham lineups: Son Heung-min starts, Lamela out through injury

Liverpool Anfield Road Paisley Gateway 2

Liverpool host Tottenham in the Premier League this evening - here is how the two teams line up.

Liverpool take on Tottenham this evening in what promises to be a hugely entertaining encounter at Anfield.

The Reds have been inconsistent under Jurgen Klopp, and nothing proved that more than the 3-2 defeat to Southampton last time out, where Liverpool led 2-0 at half time but collapsed in the second period.

Tonight, Liverpool face a tough challenge as they host Premier League title challengers Tottenham, with manager Klopp making a few changes to his side.

The returning James Milner is in the side having missed out through suspension at Southampton, with Roberto Firmino not risked having been missing with an injury recently.

Daniel Sturridge starts in attack, whilst other England international Nathaniel Clyne, Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana are also in the side this evening.

The likes of Kolo Toure, Divock Origi and Martin Skrtel are all on the bench, with Christian Benteke out through injury.

Meanwhile, Spurs enter the game having beaten Bournemouth 3-0 last time out, with Harry Kane finding the net twice in that win.

Kane leads the line again for Spurs tonight, though he won't be supported by Erik Lamela, with the Argentine international missing with a knock to his calf.

That means Son Heung-min returns to the starting line up, and will hope to supply Kane alongside Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen in attacking midfield.

Jan Vertonghen may be back in training but he isn't in tonight's squad, though the likes of Nacer Chadli, Ryan Mason, Kieran Trippier and Joshua Onomah are all on the bench for Spurs, as they look for a win to pile the pressure on leaders Leicester.
