There is just one big question for Mauricio Pochettino ahead of Tottenham’s game with Liverpool. Just where does he fit Dele Alli back into the team?

The are plenty of permutations for our manager to ponder. Alli could play as a number eight alongside either Eric Dier or Victor Wanyama, with that partnership having looked somewhat defensive so far this season.

Or Pochettino could keep that solid base to the team and play Alli in his normal position behind the striker, which would mean dropping either Harry Kane or Vincent Janssen to the bench.

Another alternative is for Alli to replace Christian Eriksen, with the Dane having disappointed against Crystal Palace. Finally, Pochettino could just keep a winning side intact and leave Alli amongst the substitutes, but we’d be very surprised if that happens.

For us the unlucky man would be Dier, giving Spurs an attacking look and a great option to bring off the bench to shore things up.

Here’s our Tottenham team to face Liverpool. What’s yours?

  1. This team that’s selected is brilliant. We just have to make sure Dele tracks back on defense. This gives us a great balance of attack and defense.

    I’m impartial as to playing Dier or Wanyama. Dier doesn’t foul as much as Wanyama seems to, but maybe we go with the hot hand?

    Any thoughts on a 4-4-2?

    Dier-Wanyama
    Lamela-Alli-Eriksen
    Kane

    Sub in Janssen for Kane at the 60 if no goals or for one of attacking MFs if one of them is underperforming

  3. Vorm
    Walker-Alderweireld-Vertonghen-Rose
    Dier-Wanyama
    Lamela-Kane-Alli
    Janssen

    Eriksen doesn’t deserve to be in the starting XI on current form right now.

  4. What’s our team to face Spur? Well, it very much depends on how many headless chicken Klopp wants to field. Of course, there is also the ever-present Jordan ‘the meek lamb’ Henderson. You can’t miss him. He is the want who pulls out of a tackle even when the challenge is 70:30 in his favour.

    Janssen
    Sub Kane on at 60 mins if no goals and maybe bring on someone like onomah or carrol coming into the last 10/5 mins of the game
