Confirmed Tottenham XI vs Liverpool: one change from Arsenal game including a start for £40m star

Ange Postecoglou is unbeaten in all 40 league home matches in charge of Celtic and Spurs, winning 35 and drawing five of those fixtures.

Tottenham know they face the biggest challenge of their season with Jurgen Klopp’s men arriving at North London with a 17-game unbeaten run from last season.

The Reds have also been boosted by the news that Trent Alexander-Arnold is fit again after missing four games with a hamstring problem.

Tottenham themselves will be glad with James Maddison who picked up a knock in the game against Arsenal recovering and being named in the team for the game.

Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou has already changed the feeling around Tottenham and his press conferences are a breath of fresh air with results on the field so far equally impressive.

The Lilywhites are undefeated in the league so far and have had impressive games against Manchester United that impressive come-from-behind win against Sheffield United.

The biggest letdown for the Spurs was the news that Brennan Johnson has been left out after he picked up a tight hamstring against Arsenal.

However, Postecoglou confirmed it was nothing long-term in his pre-match press conference. He said: “From last week, Brennan will miss out - it’s nothing too serious but he won’t be right for this week. Madders and Sonny trained today just finished the session and seemed to get through it not too bad.”

The Spurs boss has also insisted that their challenge will be to believe in the ideas that has helped them to a good start to the season and wants his players to continue to practice them regardless of the opposition, so with that in mind, this is how he’s set up his team.
