Anfield is sure to be a cauldron on Sunday as Liverpool plays host to Tottenham in a marquee matchup. The first meeting in the Premier League ended in both controversy and heartbreak for the Reds.

A wrongly disallowed Luis Diaz goal for a phantom offside combined with an unlucky Joel Matip own goal meant Spurs secured a 2-1 home win and celebrated as if they had won the league.

Hopefully, those images are not lost on Liverpool and following yet another frustrating result, this time a draw with West Ham, Liverpool can still finish the Klopp era strong.

The maximum points and a good performance against Tottenham would go a long way to restoring some of the good mojo that was flowing early this year.

Let's get into how the Liverpool side could lineup for this pivotal match.

Goalkeeper: Alisson Becker

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jarrell Quansah, Joe Gomez, Andy Robertson

Midfielders: Alexis Mac Allister, Wataru Endo, Ryan Gravenberch

Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz

Probable Subs: Darwin Nunez, Curtis Jones, Dominik Szoboszlai, Harvey Elliott

If Jurgen Klopp leaves Gravenberch out of the Starting XI following a strong performance just as he did in the Merseyside Derby, it will be a true shame.

The Dutchman was once again one of Liverpool's better players against the Hammers while Szoboszlai has not been close to his best for weeks. It's time to run with Gravenberch for now and see where he goes.

Robertson has been playing well and Alexander-Arnold should have most of the rust off from his return from injury. I expect No. 66 to have a very impactful game on Sunday.

Son Heung-Min is still an incredible player and he is a threat to score anytime takes the pitch. As a result, Ibrahima Konate who has seemingly lost all of his confidence, cannot be trusted to start right now.

Quansah is calm beyond his years and has rarely put a step wrong when played this whole season. Van Dijk being injured means that Joe Gomez could be called upon.

As for the attack, Gakpo continues playing well and cannot be replaced. Salah has to be restored to the lineup. He gives the Reds attack its most dynamic option to scoring goals. This match should be end-to-end so Salah could thrive.

Nunez coming on at the hour mark or so to run at a hopefully ragged Tottenham defense also sounds like a good plan.

This should be a very entertaining match and I expect a lot of goals to be scored.
