SPURS (4-2-3-1)

Tottenham Hotspur arrive at Anfield in second place in the Barclays Premier League, five points behind leaders Leicester City. Spurs can cut that lead to two points as they play tomorrow and the leaders are not in action, at home to Southampton, until the following afternoon.

Tottenham have lost just two of their last 16 Premier League home games, winning nine and drawing five and away from home they have won eight and lost just two of their 15 games on the road. And Spurs have conceded just 12 away goals this season.

Spurs striker Harry Kane has scored four goals in his last two League games - he also netted for England in the 3-2 win in Germany - to become the fifth Englishman to score 20-plus goals in consecutive Premier League seasons, following in the footsteps of Andrew Cole, Les Ferdinand, Robbie Fowler and Alan Shearer.

Meanwhile, Liverpool lost 3-2 at Southampton last time out; it was the first time in their Premier League history that they have failed to win having led by two or more goals at half-time, having previously won 112 and drawn three of 115 games.

Philippe Coutinho has scored more goals in all competitions for Liverpool in 2015-16 than in any other previous campaign with nine.

Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet has saved three of the last five penalties that he has faced in the Premier League for Liverpool, after saving one of the previous five.

Spurs last won in the league at Anfield in May 2011 and have lost five and drawn one of their last six league clashes.

Liverpool test Christian Benteke and Roberto Firmino while Spurs have a doubt over Toby Alderweireld.
