Young Side! Tottenham Team News And Predicted Line-Up To Face Liverpool

Following two successive goalless draws against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League and Bournemouth in the Premier League, Spurs make the trip to Anfield to face Liverpool in round four of the EFL Cup.

In terms of team news, Toby Alderweireld is expected to remain sidelined following his knee injury away at West Brom and Harry Kane is making good progress recovering from his ankle injury, but he will not be fit for the trip to Anfield. Mauricio Pochettino has already hinted that he will field a weakened side in the EFL Cup, and in light of that, here is our Spurs predicted line-up.

GK: Michel Vorm

Hugo Lloris has been in outstanding form in recent matches, but Michel Vorm is likely to get some game time. When the Frenchman was injured, Vorm was immense, and I expect him to be as solid as ever should he start.

RB: Kieran Trippier

The right-back put in a good performance against Leverkusen last night and has evidently learned a lot from Kyle Walker in recent months. I expect him to start and pose a threat here.

CB: Cameron Carter-Vickers

The youngster played against Gillingham last month in the EFL Cup and played very well and may well be given another run out here, but expect him to be stretched to maximum capacity against a quick and clinical Liverpool attack.

CB: Kevin Wimmer

Wimmer’s comments about gametime may not have gone down well with Mauricio Pochettino, but I think he will start here alongside Carter-Vickers in the heart of the defence.

LB: Ben Davies

The Welshman has made a strong start to the season, and has played well when filling in for Danny Rose, and I think he is in line to start here against Liverpool.

CDM: Harry Winks

In my opinion was in contention for Man of the Match in the last round against Gillingham, I though he played fantastically. He has made a few substitute appearances since but I think he will play from the start here.

CM: Christian Eriksen

With Pochettino saying that he trusts Winks to play in the holding role by himself, Eriksen could play in a central role, in a 4-3-3 formation perhaps.
