Tyler Morton is handed a first Premier League start in Liverpool’s clash at Tottenham Hotspur today.
With Thiago Alcantara the latest player to be ruled out due to a suspected positive COVID-19 test and Jordan Henderson absent due to illness, the 19-year-old begins in midfield.
Morton is one of three changes made by the Reds in London, with the others seeing Naby Keita and James Milner come into the side.
Thiago Alcantara will miss this afternoon’s Premier League fixture with Tottenham Hotspur after registering a suspected positive test for COVID-19.
The midfielder is now isolating and will play no part in the encounter in London.
In addition, Jordan Henderson is also absent because of illness. The captain has registered a negative test for COVID-19, but has been withdrawn from selection due to feeling unwell.
All of the Reds’ first-team squad and staff have been tested for COVID-19 on Saturday as well as this morning, with no further positive cases detected, which includes Henderson.
