Dream 11 Fantasy tips and Predictions
This has become one of the biggest rivalries in recent years and the pair met in the final of the Champions League a few months ago.
Liverpool came out on top of that clash and have taken their performances to another level.
Tottenham, on the other hand, have struggled but their 5-0 win over Red Star Belgrade should give them some confidence ahead of the game.
Dream 11 requires at least four players from each side and selecting the right ones can lead to a great points haul.
Hugo Lloris is out of the game as he recovers from a dislocated elbow. Alisson returned to action for the Reds against Manchester United and he should be picked ahead of Paulo Gazzaniga.
Robertson has to be selected for this clash as he is expected to be fit. Trent Alexander-Arnold could be another selection but him missing out the game against Genk is an issue.
The Englishman could return if he is fit but Virgil van Dijk has to be selected as he is one of the best in the world.
Danny Rose should also be selected as the left-back joins the attack well and could cause Liverpool some problems.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were on the score-sheet in midweek and should start for the Reds on Sunday.
The pair have troubled Spurs in the past and should be in the Dream 11 team.
Spurs’ midfielders haven’t done much this season so selected Moussa Sissoko and Harry Winks is a great option to balance things in terms of players selected.
Roberto Firmino could have been selected but Harry Kane and Son Heung-min seem to be in great form after their braces against Red Star.
The pair should be selected for this clash while Divock Origi could come off the bench and get some crucial points too.
Captain and Vice-captain
The captain and vice-captain should be split between the teams with Sadio Mane being handed the armband while Son is his deputy.
This is another tough match to call given that Tottenham always raise their game against the Reds.
However, Liverpool should have enough in the tank to get the better of the London side.
Selections, fantasy tips and predictions are based on historical data related to the team. It is advisable to conduct additional research close to the game for more accurate team news and player availability.
