      Pre-Match: Tottenham Hotspur V Liverpool (15/09/18 - 12:30)

      Spurs at Wembley. Time to right last season's wrong. The early kick off is never easy and especially after the International break. Time for our front three to catch fire! 2-1 Reds!  :kop5cf8koxp6: :kop5cf8koxp6: :kop5cf8koxp6:

      Why on earth would you play Henderson and Milner in midfield again, it never works as it lacks dynamism, which we desperately need against Spurs, we have to either start Fabinho or put Wijnaldum back into the team.


      I fear for this game though, the combination of Wembley, early kick off and first game after the international break does not bode well.

      100% agree. Wijnaldum has to start.

      I would take a draw. F***ing hate playing at Wembley and I hate early kick offs.

      Dele Alli pulls out of England squad with a 'minor muscle strain'. 

      Sounds like code for having a little rest before we play them at the weekend.

      I fear for this game though, the combination of Wembley, early kick off and first game after the international break does not bode well.

      Throw in what happened last year and our maximum points so far and I'd be content with a draw.

      I would bring in Keita for Henderson in order to see how he copes in the big games. This should be a closely contested match, but if our front three click, then we should have too much for them.

      Got a bad feeling he’ll go for the same three in midfield as against Leicester.

      Nice to see such positivity for a team who has a 100% record so far this season. I am going for a 3-1 win.  If Henderson is fit he will play.

      Positivity is a fine thing but realism is even better, 2 of those games, the last 2, we were fairly fortunate to get maximum points and if we start with the same lacklustre midfield as against Leicester then Spurs will humiliate us again. I would be extremely disappointed if we started with both Henderson and Milner.

      Hendo and Milner in the same lineup is not good enough against a team like Spurs and with a game on Tuesday we can split them up anyways. i think i'd go Fabinho - Milner - Keita in midfield with the rest of the team picking itself, though with Bobby having gone on international leave + PSG on Tuesday, Klopp may surprise us with Sturridge starting.

      Milner will start since he will be fresh since he was not on international duty. I can see Klopp going with Gini-Milner-Ketia for this match and the rest will be status quo in terms of back 5 and attacking trio. This going to be a very difficult game and if we played like we did last couple of games then we will lose. I am looking for attacking trio to really make the different and get us a result.

      last year's games against Spurs were disappointing in that the away game Lovren gave it all away in 30 minutes and the home game the ref came up with imaginary PK calls to deny us the win.

      We have had a pretty easy start to the season in terms of opposition difficulty so we need to be amp'ed up and ready to go on Saturday. After their collapse at Watford we have the opportunity to create a 6-point gap between us which would be huge.

      Possibly Sturridge time should be fresh and Firmino who was poor last time out as well as being on international duty bit of rest before PSG do him no harm . Keita will return for this one and hopefully Fab

      Spurs are a high pressing team.

      Did nobody notice what happened to our midfield in the 2nd half when Leicester decided to put pressure on our midfielders!

      People forgetting that Watford bullied Spurs before the break.

      Alli has been sh*t this season, Kane is playing like he is injured, their back line have been a joke this season, and we haven't even been playing well but winning games.

      Big call this, but I say an ole Spurs hammering of old, 4-0 to the red men.

      Bullshit Internationals do my fookin head in..
      Our new goalkeeper, Fabinho and Firmino don't arrive back in the country til late on Thursday for a lunchtime kick off Saturday.

      Jürgen will have no time to work with the 1st team at all so it's gonna be a tactical approach and as a few have suggested maybe it's a chance for the likes of Studge and Moreno to start?
      Did Fabinho play for Brazil? If not he may get the nod.
      One things for sure, the Tottenham midfield are attack minded so playing a 4-4-2 is a better option for me with Mane & Mo upfront, put Bobby on the bench and give him a run second half.

      You just don't know in this crazy game we all love do you.. we could go out there an tw*t them 3-0, or, it could end up 4-4  :roll:

      The first 10 minutes will give us all the clues we are looking for.

      Did you watch the game last year at Anfield? They completely dominated us second half, it felt like they had 12 men.

      I trust Klopp to really go for it, I think that’s the way to beat them.

      Thanks for clearing that up guys.

      Still think it might be wise to rest Bobby on Saturday and start him against PSG on Tuesday.

      Henderson isn't good enough to face Spurs. He can put in an average performance against weaker teams, which gets him MOTM for some bizaar reason... because he's captain!? He would flapp around clueless against Spurs. Milner has experience against top sides, he should be paired with Keita and Gini. Spurs is not a good game to introduce Fabinho either.
