Confirmed Liverpool lineup vs. Tottenham: Alexander-Arnold passed fit to start

31 March 2019

Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to his Liverpool starting lineup as they look for another three points against Tottenham this afternoon at Anfield.


The Reds signed off for the international break with a 2-1 win at Fulham, and have returned with a near fully fit squad, with seven games left to play in the Premier League.

Today brings one of the toughest on paper, as Spurs arrive on Merseyside looking to maintain their push for a top-four finish—having already fallen out of the race for the title.

Defeat would be a big setback for Liverpool, following Man City‘s 2-0 win over the Cottagers on Saturday, and Klopp has named a robust side to ensure that doesn’t happen.

Alisson starts in goal, in his 40th appearance for the club, behind a back line of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson.

In midfield, Jordan Henderson will take up the No. 6 role, accompanied by the more advanced duo of James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum.

And in attack, as ever, as Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, and after both scoring for their countries in the international break, the latter pair will be hungry for more.

Among those named on the substitutes’ bench are Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum; Salah, Mane, Firmino

Substitutes: Mignolet, Lovren, Fabinho, Lallana, Keita, Shaqiri, Origi

Tottenham: Lloris; Trippier, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen, Rose; Sissoko, Eriksen, Alli, Lucas; Kane

Substitutes: Gazzaniga, Foyth, Davies, Skipp, Wanyama, Son, Llorente
