Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur in an all-important Premier League 2021-22 matchday 36 fixture at Anfield in the early hours of Sunday, May 8. The match will kick off at 12:15 AM IST.
With only a point separating the Reds from league leaders Manchester City, there is absolutely no margin for error for Jurgen Klopp’s men. For that, the German has a fully fit squad at his disposal, which essentially leads to the dilemma of team selection.
With Luis Diaz in the form of his life, it remains to be seen who among Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota partner the Colombian alongside Mohamed Salah.
Tottenham, on the other hand, have no new injury issues but they are still reeling from the old ones at the moment. The likes of Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon and Japhet Tanganga are all ruled out for Sunday’s fixture.

The fact that Liverpool are undefeated against Tottenham since 2017 makes them the outright favourites to win on Sunday. In fact, between 2012 to the date of writing, Tottenham have won just two matches against Liverpool across all competitions.
While their first meeting of the ongoing season did end without a winner, the gravity of the fixture is rightly expected to push Liverpool for a win.
