Tottenham Hotspur visit Anfield on Tuesday night for a Premier League match which could go a long way to determining which side – if either – can qualify for the Champions League at the end of the season.

Liverpool are expected to lineup in a 3-4-2-1 formation, while Spurs will stick with 4-2-3-1, which is used by many top teams nowadays.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has received both criticism and praise for his use of 3-4-2-1 this season.

Ironically, Liverpool’s system would probably suit Tottenham better than it does the Anfield side. Perhaps that’s why six Spurs players make it into our combined Liverpool and Tottenham XI, which you can check out below…

Goalkeeper and defence
Hugo Lloris; Martin Skrtel, Jan Vertonghen, Mamadou Sakho

Lloris is widely considered to be among the best goalkeepers in the world, while Liverpool don’t have much faith in their number one – Simon Mignolet – so there is no discussion on who to put between the sticks.

Sakho and Skrtel have done very well in Liverpool’s back three – and they are largely to thank for the Reds keeping five clean sheets this year.

Emre Can has also impressed at times in defence, but the versatile young midfielder is not consistent enough to challenge Tottenham’s Vertonghen for a place in this team.
