Still no Van Dijk? – How Liverpool could line up against Tottenham

Liverpool face a waiting game to see if key players Virgil van Dijk and Fabinho will be able to play against Tottenham in the Premier League.

Van Dijk and Fabinho missed the midweek victory over Newcastle on Thursday as they await the results of a PCR Covid test.

As late as Friday afternoon, Jurgen Klopp explained that he was still unsure as to whether the duo would be available.

At the moment, it appears Sunday may come too soon.

Harvey Elliott remains out with a serious ankle injury, while Nat Phillips, Curtis Jones and Adrian are also sidelined.

Alisson will start in goal behind a likely back four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate and Andy Robertson.

Alexander-Arnold scored a Goal of the Month contender against Newcastle, firing in a screamer from 30 yards.

If Fabinho is still out, expect Jordan Henderson, Thiago and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to continue in midfield.

There was some positive squad news during the week for Klopp as Roberto Firmino returned to action following a calf injury, but he will probably remain on the bench against Tottenham as he gets back to full fitness.

That means another start each for Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota.
