Tottenham starting XI: TBC @ 7pm
Liverpool and Tottenham go head-to-head knowing victory will see them emerge at the top of the Premier League table.
The two sides occupy the top two places having accumulated 25 points from their opening 12 matches.
Jose Mourinho is hoping to stop Jurgen Klopp from defending the crown he comfortably won last time out.
And he started the mind games with his German counterpart ahead of this mouthwatering clash, calling out Klopp for moaning about his injuries.
“Every club has injuries now and again. Liverpool has a big injury, which is Van Dijk,” said Mourinho.
“Injuries are normal. James Milner is injured, [Erik] Lamela is injured.
“I think Alisson is not injured. [Trent] Alexander-Arnold is not injured. Matip, I believe that he’s going to play. Fabinho is not injured. [Andrew] Robertson is not injured. [Jordan] Henderson is not injured. [Georginio] Wijnaldum is not injured. [Mohamed] Salah is not injured, [Roberto] Firmino is not injured, [Sadio] Mane is not injured.
“Van Dijk is injured and Van Dijk is a very good player of course. But give me Liverpool’s list of injuries and compare that list with what is the best Liverpool team.
“I can give you a list of 10 injuries at Tottenham. We have two kids of the Under-16s with injuries, we have two others in the Under-21s and two in the Under-23s, we have Lamela and [Japhet] Tanganga. And here is a list of 10 players.
“But is [Hugo] Lloris injured? No. [Toby] Alderweireld injured? No. [Eric] Dier injured? No. [Sergio] Reguilon injured no? Harry Kane injured? No. Son [Heung-min] injured? No. Lucas [Moura] injured? No. So where are the injuries?”
