Tottenham vs Liverpool: Two key stars ruled out of blockbuster clash

Tottenham vs Liverpool: Two key stars ruled out of blockbuster clash

Xherdan Shaqiri is confident Liverpool can maintain their impressive start to 2018-19 when they resume action following the global break.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita says it will take time to justify the £52 million fee the club paid for the Guinea worldwide.

Pundit Neville insists that Liverpool's high intensity means their attacking players will burnout from playing two times a week on a regular basis.

The kick-off time for the match is 12:30pm.

Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris will be out for "several weeks" with a thigh injury, but will retain the captaincy after his drink-drive conviction. Yesterday, Lloris admitted in court to drink-driving, and his omission for this weekend's fixture is no surprise.

Aaron Rodgers calls his injury a ‘sprained knee’
He described how he was cleared to play by the team doctor at halftime against the Bears so long as he could "deal with the pain". After all, Rodgers returned from injury on Sunday after being taken to the locker room on the front seat of a cart.

The official reason for him missing the game is a thigh problem.

Alli withdrew from the England squad for Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland after suffering a strain during the 2-1 loss to Spain on Saturday.

Although for many last term went down as an impressive one, as Liverpool produced some stunning football and Mohamed Salah broke records, they only managed to secure a fourth-placed finish on the final day of the Premier League campaign, finishing six points behind Manchester United and 25 adrift of champions Manchester City.

Liverpool on-the-other-hand have been extremely impressive so far into the new season, demonstrating cohesion and understanding from goalkeeper through to attack and are widely speculated to break their nearly 30 year old duck and bring home the title if they can continue this run of form throughout the season.

Spurs v Liverpool kicks off on Saturday 15th September at 12:30.
