Predicted Tottenham XI to face Liverpool – Mason starts Richarlison again

Tottenham Hotspur take on Liverpool at Anfield this weekend in the Premier League as they look to build on the impressive second half against Man United in mid-week.

We believe that Ryan Mason will stick with a back three of Eric Dier, Cristian Romero, and Clement Lenglet despite difficulties against the Red Devils last time out. Fraser Forster also remains between the sticks due to an injury to Hugo Lloris.

At left-wing-back, I suspect Mason would ideally want to give Ivan Perisic a rest and play the more well-rounded Ben Davies, but the Welshman is likely not yet fit enough to start.

On the right, the same can be said of Porro and Emerson, with the former getting the nod after his goal against Man United.

In midfield, Oliver Skipp and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg are named from the start once again.

Up front, Richarlison will start on the left and Heung-min Son on the right, although both will likely drift central as Harry Kane drops into a deep number 10 role.
