Liverpool vs. Tottenham live score, updates, highlights & lineups from Premier League

Liverpool might not have chosen fifth-placed Tottenham as their ideal opponents following their exacting Champions League semi-final victory at Villarreal, and Spurs may not relish a trip to the Premier League’s most in-form team as they chase down a two-point gap on Arsenal in fourth.

Fans, however, will see the showdown as another game to savour in the frenetic finale to the season — and there have been 11 goals in the three most recent meetings between these sides.

Only the most optimistic Spurs supporters will be making the trip to Anfield without an element of trepidation as head coach Antonio Conte looks to defy their wretched recent record there.

Spurs are without a win at Liverpool in 12 games, losing nine of those matches on a barren run stretching back to May 2011. Conte himself has drawn 1-1 on both of his previous visits to Liverpool, and a point or three for Tottenham would see him join Martin O’Neill, Peter Reid, Roy Hodgson and Paul Lambert as the only managers have avoided defeat in each of their first three trips to Anfield in the Premier League.

Sporting News is following the match live and providing live score updates, commentary.

Liverpool vs. Tottenham lineups

The obvious temptation for Jurgen Klopp will be to replace Diogo Jota with Luis Diaz in a repeat of the half-time change that prefaced Liverpool’s recovery to win 3-2 at Villarreal after being 2-0 down and level in the tie at the break.

Jordan Henderson could also step in for Naby Keita in midfield and Joel Matip is expected to replace Ibrahima Konate at the back. Roberto Firmino travelled to Villarreal but did not play as he continues his recovery from the foot injury he sustained in the FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City in April, but the forward is back in full training.

Liverpool predicted lineup (4-3-3): Alisson (GK) – Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson – Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago – Salah, Mane, Diaz

Defender Sergio Reguilon will miss a game described as “huge” by Tottenham with a calf issue. “I don’t know if he will be able to come back again, as there are only two weeks until the end of the season,” admitted Conte.

The Italian said he is crossing his fingers for no more major injuries during Tottenham’s final four Premier League games of the season. Matt Doherty (knee), Oliver Skipp (pelvis) and Japhet Tanganga (knee) will miss the rest of the campaign.

Tottenham predicted lineup (3-4-3): Lloris (GK) – Romero, Dier, Davies – Emerson, Hojbjerg, Bentancur, Sessegnon – Kulusevski, Son, Kane
