Both Tottenham and Liverpool go into this one on the back of positive midweek Champions League results.

Spurs held the European champions Real Madrid to an impressive 1-1 draw in the Bernabeu, while the Reds demolished a poor Maribor side 7-0.

Spurs’ Wembley woes have been well documented this season but they face a side who have also struggled at England’s national stadium in recent years.

Since the rebuild, Liverpool have been to Wembley for five competitive matches, winning just once (in normal time).

Pochettino’s side have themselves recently lifted the curse at their new home ground by beating Bournemouth 1-0 last week, albeit unconvincingly.

A win for the home side would bring them to 20 points, taking them level with second placed Manchester United, who lost 2-1 to Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Liverpool travel south hoping for their first Premier League win in October, a result that would put Klopp’s men just a point behind Sunday’s opponents.

Team News

Tottenham will still be missing midfield pair Victor Wanyama (knee) and Moussa Dembele (hip), with Pochettino admitting he has no confirmation on when they might return to fitness.

Erik Lamela remains injured but Ben Davies has recovered from illness and could play ahead of the returning Danny Rose, who came off the bench against Madrid.

Sadio Mane remains injured and will miss out for Liverpool along with midfielder Adam Lallana and right-back Nathaniel Clyne.

Captain Jordan Henderson is expected to come back into the starting XI after being rested in midweek despite James Milner’s impressive performance in Slovenia.

Potential Tottenham Starting XI: Lloris, Trippier, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Dier, Winks, Erikson, Dele, Son, Kane.

Potential Liverpool Brighton Starting XI: Mignolet, Gomez, Matip, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Salah, Firmino.
