Liverpool will be hoping they can get their Premier League title defence back on track on Thursday but they face tough opposition in Tottenham Hotspur (8pm kick-off, UK time).
The Reds are without a win in their past five Premier League games, dropping from first to fifth in that time, just one point ahead of their hosts this week.

Tottenham vs Liverpool build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
When Liverpool beat Crystal Palace 7-0 just before Christmas, they had a four-point lead atop the Premier League table and looked relatively comfortable in their charge for a second consecutive title. Granted, their lead wasn’t as big as it had been at this point last season, but they were ahead. However, they have since faltered and now find themselves off the pace.
Three draws and two defeats have followed that win against Palace, including a stalemate against relegation-threatened West Brom, in which they conceded late on having taken an early lead. But perhaps the most worrying result of those five games was a 1-0 defeat to Burnley at Anfield a week ago, which brought an end to their 68-game unbeaten Premier League home run, that went back to April 2017. Liverpool then followed that up with another defeat, to Manchester United in the FA Cup, the second time they have lost consecutive matches this season.
Tottenham meanwhile are currently in form poles apart from the Reds and riding high with Jose Mourinho at the helm. Since a 2-0 defeat to Leicester in the build-up to Christmas, Tottenham are unbeaten in their past eight games across all competitions and will be looking to overtake Liverpool with victory on Thursday.
It took some time but Mourinho has found what works for his Tottenham side and they could turn out to be title contenders if not this season, then certainly in 2021/22. They have also enjoyed success in the cup competitions, already securing a spot in the Carabao Cup final and beating Wycombe 4-1 in the FA Cup on Monday to set up a fifth-round tie against Everton next month.
- Tottenham (vs Wycombe Wanderers): Hart; Tanganga, Sanchez, Alderweireld, Davies; Winks, Sissoko; Bale, Lamela, Lucas; Vinicius.
- Liverpool (vs Manchester United): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Fabinho, Williams, Robertson; Milner, Thiago, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Jones.
Going up against Championship opposition, Tottenham were able to name a rotated side on Monday, but will return to full strength for the visit of Liverpool. However, they do remain without Matt Doherty, Dele Alli, Ben Davies and Giovani Lo Celso.
Liverpool should welcome Sadio Mane back into the starting XI but Diogo Jota, Naby Keita and Joe Gomez are not expected to play any part. Virgil van Dijk, of course, remains out long term.
Klopp did deliver some positive news in the build-up to this contest, confirming Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip have returned to full training, with both players having missed out at Old Trafford over the weekend, and the former also absent for the Burnley defeat with a minor fitness issue.
“Hendo and Joel trained yesterday with the team fully,” Klopp confirmed at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday morning.
“Like always with these things we have to see how they react overnight and what they can do today, but they trained yesterday.”
