Tottenham v Liverpool: Premier League – live! | Football


Plenty of notable team news, as you’d expect in these peculiar times. Dele Alli gets a rare start, one of five changes from the 3-0 win over Norwich a fortnight ago. Ryan Sessegnon, Tanguy Ndombele, Emerson Royal and Harry Winks also come in, with Japhet Tanganga, Sergio Reguilon, Lucas Moura, Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg left out. All bar Hojbjerg are on the bench. We’re not sure where Ndombele and Alli will line up; Antonio Conte may have switched to 5-3-2 to give more protection in midfield.

Liverpool are without their entire first-choice midfield, so the teenager Tyler Morton gets his first Premier League start. He was born on 31 October 2002, ten days before James Milner, who also starts today, made his Premier League debut. The three changes in midfield – Morton, Milner and Naby Keita for Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – are the only ones made by Jurgen Klopp.

Spurs (possible 5-3-2) Lloris; Royal, Sanchez, Dier, Davies, Sessegnon; Ndombele, Winks, Alli; Kane, Son.
Substitutes: Austin, Rodon, Tanganga, Doherty, Reguilon, Skipp, Lo Celso, Bergwijn, Lucas.

Liverpool (4-3-3) Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Konate, Robertson; Morton, Milner, Keita; Salah, Jota, Mane.
Substitutes: Kelleher, Firmino, Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Minamino, Tsimikas, Gordon, N Williams, Quansah.

Referee Paul Tierney.
