Tottenham hope to build on their impressive start to life under new boss Mauricio Pochettino with revenge against a Liverpool side who thrashed them 9-0 on aggregate last term.
Pochettino seems to have restored the excitement and attractive football to White Hart Lane after a disappointing brand under previous boss Andre Villas-Boas.
But Liverpool will be confident of continuing their dominance over Spurs, despite losing influential goal machine Luis Suarez this summer. They hope they’ve adequately replaced the Uruguayan with the capture of AC Milan’s Mario Balotelli last week, and Brendan Rodgers will be expecting him to make an immediate impact on his Reds debut today.
Here are today’s confirmed line ups…
