Liverpool lineup vs Tottenham – as Ibrahima Konate back 



Liverpool host Tottenham on Sunday and Jurgen Klopp is expected to remain largely with the side which have won three league games in a row.

Liverpool finally appear to be starting to gain momentum after a trying season in which they have been inconsistent at

A slightly different system, with Trent Alexander-Arnold playing more centrally when in possession, has helped the Reds regain some form. However, Klopp ceased to say that his site has regained consistency.

Although the qualification of the Champions League is quite unrealistic, the form of Liverpool could always help you capture a place in this competition or in the Europa League during the following season.

This is how Liverpool could line up against Tottenham.

Team news 

Here’s what Klopp told reporters in his press conference:

Ibrahima Konate “will be back” to face Tottenham

Diogo Jota “struck on the back” against West Ham, but “should be fine”

Naby Keita “will train after a muscle injury”

Liverpools XI vs. Tottenham

Klopp has made just one change in his last four games – with Joel Matip replacing the injured Konate against West Ham.

“The ticket for this team will be a willingness to counter-press,” said the coach, adding that it “has created a situation in training where anyone can show up.”

While the team are clearly pushing Klopp’s starters, the German is unlikely to make any drastic changes against Tottenham.

The team might look like this:

Just a change from Liverpool’s win over West Ham

Konaté returns before Matip

The midfield remains the same, Fabinho is seated

Here’s how Liverpool would line up:

Alison; Alexandre-Arnold, Konaté, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Jones; Salah, Jota, Gakpo

Something that could strain Klopp’s hand is his captain’s aging nature, as Liverpool are in the midst of a spell where they play six games in just 19 days.

Injuries could also mean Klopp changing teams.

Jota is currently in doubt due to a back blow he received against West Ham. Klopp said he “should be fine” but did not take part in training on Friday.

With that in mind, we may see more changes:

Darwin Nunez starts the first of six competitions, replacing Jota

Matip keeps his place next to Virgil van Dijk

Thiago replaces Jordan Henderson in midfield

Here’s what this rotated team would look like:

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Thiago, Jones; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo

Klopp’s focus on counter-pressure will continue for the rest of this season as he urges his Liverpool side to return to the blueprint that brought them success.

The players he decides to pick against Tottenham Hotspur should be ready for an intense 90 minutes at Anfield.


The points Man United or Newcastle need to drop for Liverpool to finish in the top 4

Liverpool’s win at West Ham brought them closer to a European spot, but they are still counting on Man United or Newcastle losing points in the run-in.

It’s been seven years since Liverpool failed to qualify for the Champions League.

However, poor away form this season has massively let Jurgen Klopp’s side down and they now rely on others and themselves to finish in the top four.

Liverpool are currently seventh with 53 points from 32 games.

They are aiming to catch Newcastle and Man United, who are third and fourth respectively. Man United are seven points clear of the Reds, while Newcastle are still two points clear.

How many points can Liverpool score?

The Reds are currently enjoying one of their best runs this season – they are unbeaten in five games and have won their last three games.

If Liverpool won their remaining six games, their points tally would be 71.

That would have been enough for fourth place in six of the past 10 years – in the past 10 seasons, the fourth-place team has averaged 71.4 points.

However, Newcastle and Man United appear to be reaching that record this season. How many points do we need Newcastle or Man United?

In order not to live up to 71, the Newcastle 10 of a possible 18 points should still be available.

The Man United should now drop 11 points of 21 remaining.

Who should play our rivals?

Newcastle and Man United only need 12 and 14 points to ensure their place in the Champions League for the next season. Newcastle have six games and United seven to achieve this.

Those points would put them above 73, which is the number Brighton – who have played up to three games fewer than their surroundings – can still achieve if they win all of their games.

Like Liverpool, Brighton look unlikely to catch up. Roberto De Zerbi’s side have lost two of their last three league games.

A home advantage? Luckily for Liverpool, four of their remaining six games are at Anfield, with away games at Leicester and then Southampton on the final day.

If only home games counted, Liverpool would be fourth in the table, while away points alone would lift them to tenth.

Manchester United are likely looking weaker at the moment and could start to feel the pressure as they drop points in their next two games, those against Aston Villa and in-form Brighton.

They are also to play more away games than Liverpool and play the Manchester derby, in the FA Cup Final, six days after their last league game against Fulham at Old Trafford.

It would take a huge leap for Liverpool to catch Man United or Newcastle, with the chances they will need to win the remaining six games to have any hope.

Either way, Klopp has admitted that his side will ‘take what we have’ when it comes to European football next season.
