Liverpool team news: Klopp confirms Mignolet will start against Tottenham

Liverpool have been in impressive form recently winning five of their last six Premier League games culminating with a 2-1 win over West Brom to move joint top alongside Arsenal and Manchester City on 21 points.

The Reds will take on Tottenham next in the EFL Cup and Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he will make changes.

Simon Mignolet will start according to the official Liverpool club website against Spurs despite Loris Karius currently being first choice goalkeeper.

In other Liverpool team news Klopp has a full strength squad available for the EFL Cup but he is expected to rotate his side with a tricky trip to Selhurt Park against Crystal Palace in the league soon afterwards.

Klopp lost star midfielder Emre Can in the EFL Cup game against Burton Albion and will want to avoid unnecessary injuries.

Liverpool have lost just one of their opening 11 games but Klopp underlined that his side are not at 100 percent yet.

“Nothing what we did until now was close to 100 per cent, nothing, so we have to improve, we have to get closer to this 100 per cent,” he was quoted as saying by the official club site.
