Goal Scorer:

Tottenham's battling point in the North London derby came at quite the cost, as Brennan Johnson suffered a hamstring injury 60 minutes into his full debut, while James Maddison suffered a gut-wrenching knee jolt but managed to soldier on for a short period before being withdrawn.

However, scans on Maddison's knee are believed to have provided reassuring results, and Spurs are optimistic that August's Premier League Player of the Month will be fit to face the Reds, but Johnson is more of an uncertainty; Richarlison is on hand to deputise.

The hosts' list of known absentees features Ivan Perisic (knee), Giovani Lo Celso (thigh), Alfie Whiteman (ankle), Rodrigo Bentancur (knee), Bryan Gil (groin) and Ryan Sessegnon (hamstring), although the latter two are now said to have returned to training as they step up their respective recoveries.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Vicario; Porro, Romero, Van de Ven, Udogie; Sarr, Bissouma; Kulusevski, Maddison, Son; Richarlison

Speaking of players returning to the practice pitches, Liverpool vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold is now back with the team at Kirkby following his hamstring problem, but the right-back is still facing a race against time to make himself available for Saturday's crunch clash.

Midfielder Thiago Alcantara represents the only other injury concern in Klopp's ranks and should not return from his hip setback for another few weeks, but the visitors have all of their troops available otherwise and will revert to their strongest XI after giving several fringe players run-outs in midweek.

Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah - the latter of whom was absent entirely on Wednesday - will be expected to reunite in the final third, while a well-rested Joel Matip could also continue his recent run of Premier League starts in the backline alongside Virgil van Dijk.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Gomez, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister, Jones; Salah, Nunez, Diaz
Prediction: Tottenham Hotspur 2-2 Liverpool
