Games against Spurs have usually been close in recent seasons but we have had the better of them. Their new manager bounce turned out to be more of a dead cat bounce but Mourinho will, as always, be desperate to put one over on Liverpool. He'll have do do it without Harry Kane, though Spurs have managed to come through Kane's absences quite well in the past. Only Shaqiri of Liverpool's injured players is likely to be available for this one, though Matip, Fabinho and Lovren could be in contention for the United game the following week end.
Klopp has said his team will be unpredictable which I somehow doubt. Why play anything other than the strongest available team? I think it will be:
Trent Gomez VVD Robertson
Ox Henderson Wijnaldum
Salah Firmino Mane
At least in midfield and attack there should be good options from the bench, namely Shaqiri, Origi, Minamino, Lallana and Jones.
Both teams have had time to recover and plan for this game and I am expecting another tight one but I cannot see anything but a Liverpool win if we are in anything like the form of recent weeks.
