Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool
Fifth face first at Wembley in Saturday’s early Premier League game, as Tottenham look to try and end Liverpool’s 100 per cent record.
Spurs suffered their first defeat of the season – 2-1 at Watford – prior to the international break, but their record at Wembley is impressive having lost just two of their 20 Premier League games at their temporary home.
Mauricio Pochettino says he expects a response to the defeat at Vicarage Road, where he felt his team’s mentality was not as it should have been, as Spurs look to ignite memories of their 4-1 win over the Reds last season.
The hosts have been dealt two major injury setbacks prior to the game, with Dele Alli sidelined with a hamstring problem and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris missing due to a thigh injury.
Having returned from the recent Asian Games, Son Heung-min could replace Alli while Michel Vorm is expected to start between the posts again, as he did in the game at Watford.
Liverpool head to London in top form and having conceded just one goal in their first four games. They also have the upper hand in the head-to-head stats, with just one defeat in their last 12 meetings with Spurs.
Jurgen Klopp has revealed that Adam Lallana will play no part in the game, due to a groin strain that forced him to withdraw from the England squad, but back-up keeper Simon Mignolet is fit after a hand injury.
