here is a bit of mystery around Tottenham’s meeting with Liverpool tonight after Jose Mourinho hinted at some injury problems in the Spurs camp – and Sergio Reguilon misses out, but Matt Doherty and Ben Davies both start.
Mourinho confirmed that Dele Alli remains sidelined through injury, while Giovani Lo Celso is also still out with a hamstring problem.
Steven Bergwijn has got the nod in the front three, although Gareth Bale underlined his knack for scoring goals again at Adams Park and is an option from the bench.
Erik Lamela is also suited to a cameo in this type of match.
