Full strength side? - How Liverpool could line up against Tottenham

There's no rest for Jurgen Klopp's side as they can't dwell on reaching the Champions League final due to their clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Jurgen Klopp will be forced to play a full strength team against Tottenham, despite his Liverpool side's efforts against Villarreal in midweek.

Liverpool went 2-0 down on the night as Villarreal gave themselves a real shot of progressing into the final, but the Reds' second-half display saw off Unai Emery's side and ensured their passage into the Champions League final for the third time in five years.

Klopp won the competition with Liverpool in 2019, one year after losing the final to Real Madrid, who they will face in Paris in the showpiece event.

Facing a Tottenham side still in the race for the top four, Liverpool will need to go full strength as they hunt the title. They sit one points behind rivals Manchester City, who were knocked out the Champions League by the aforementioned Real Madrid.

Antonio Conte's Spurs ran out 3-1 winners over Leicester last weekend, with Son Heung-Min continuing his fine goalscoring form.

Trent Alexander-Arnold will be the man tasked with dealing with him, despite Joe Gomez's minutes as his deputy in recent weeks. Joel Matip will come back in for Ibrahima Konate as the former Schalke man has been the preferred option in the league, while it's been the other way around in the Champions League.

Jordan Henderson will come into the starting Xi, but Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara may be needed from the start. The midweek clash with Aston Villa will provide more opportunity for rest.

Luis Diaz made an instant impact as a substitute against Villarreal and he'll be tasked to do the same as a starter against Tottenham. Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah will likely both start, although Diogo Jota could play in place of one of them.
