In contrast, Spurs slipped up prior to the international break with defeat at Watford, dropping their first points of the season after impressing through the first three games, which included a win at Old Trafford against Man Utd.

As a result, Mauricio Pochettino will be looking to see his side bounce back from that setback with a positive performance, while Klopp will be hopeful that the break hasn’t disrupted their momentum.

Unsurprisingly both managers have gone with strong starting line-ups, albeit Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris were ruled out during the week due to injury and are absent from the squad which will be a blow for the hosts given their influence on the side.

There is some good news for Pochettino though as Heung-Min Son is back from international duty to take his place on the bench, while Danny Rose, Harry Winks and Eric Dier come into the starting line-up with Davinson Sanchez and Ben Davies dropping out.

As for Liverpool, Klopp has made just one change from last time out and it’s a crucial one as Naby Keita replaces captain Jordan Henderson in midfield while Simon Mignolet and Fabinho are named on an impressive bench.
