New season is upon us!
Tottenham’s Jonathan Woodgate is recovering from groin surgery while fellow centre-back Michael Dawson is out with an Achilles injury.
Sebastien Bassong could make his debut following an £8m move from Newcastle.
Steven Gerrard is doubtful for Liverpool with a groin injury but both Jamie Carragher (ankle) and Martin Skrtel (hamstring) should feature.
New signing Alberto Aquilani is unlikely to play before September as he recovers from an ankle problem.
Suspended: None Doubtful: Jenas (calf)
Injured: Bale (knee), Dawson (Achilles), Woodgate (groin)
Doubtful: Carragher (ankle), Gerrard (groin), Skrtel (hamstring)
Injured: Agger (back), Aquilani (ankle), Aurelio (knee), El Zhar (knee) (BBC Sport)
So, what does your heart and head say about what will happen at today’s game? Obviously we didn’t do to well at White Hart Lane last term and without Stevie G, and obviously with Xabi Alonso gone, it will be up to Lucas to prove his worth.
My Prediction: 1-0 to Liverpool
