Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho faces the daunting task of picking a team to face a Liverpool side who have proven unbeatable so far this season.

Liverpool have powered ahead in the Premier League table, and now appear almost certainties to win the title come May.


The serene progress at Anfield has been in stark contrast to what has happened at Spurs, with Mourinho’s men struggling throughout the season so far.

Tottenham have performed well below expectations this term, with flaws in their squad being clearly exposed.

Mourinho does always have a plan for the big occasion though, and it could be that multiple changes are made tomorrow.

Mourinho could look to bring £40 million (Standard) Davinson Sanchez back into his side’s defence to add some pace, with Jan Vertonghen going back into his role at left-back.

Mourinho could also hand Erik Lamela his first start since taking charge, after he impressed from the bench against Middlesbrough, and Eric Dier may return to midfield, to add a bit more steel to their side.
