Their last victory came in an impressive 7-0 away win at Crystal Palace back in December but, since then the Reds have seen a dramatic dip in form.

Liverpool will be desperate to get back to winning ways and will be hoping to come away with all three points. 

Jose Mourinho will be seeking to leapfrog Liverpool in the table and claim the fourth Champions League position with a win, as Tottenham Hotspur sit sixth with a game in hand over Jurgen Klopp's men. 

Team news

It is positive news for Liverpool as both Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip should be available to start after both players missed the FA Cup tie against Manchester United last Sunday. 

However, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota still remain side lined until February.

Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez also remain out of the squad as they step up their rehabilitation. 

As for Spurs, they look to have some injury problems of their own as Ben Davies and Matt Doherty look set to miss Thursdays match. 

Whilst Dele Alli and Giovani Lo Celso are both still out with injuries.

Predicted lineups

Tottenham (4-2-3-1): Lloris, Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon, Winks, Dembele, Son, Ndombele, Bergwijn, Kane.

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Thiago, Mane, Firmino, Salah.
