TEAM NEWS: Lallana starts but Lovren misses out for Liverpool against Tottenham

England's Player of the Year is fit enough for the first XI against Spurs, which sees just one change from last weekend's 2-0 defeat at Hull City

Adam Lallana has shrugged off a minor Achilles issue to start Liverpool’s test against Tottenham, but a knee injury has ruled Dejan Lovren out of the matchday squad. 

Time for Klopp to bring back Karius

Ragnar Klavan returns to the bench after overcoming a bacterial infection, with Lucas continuing alongside Joel Matip in the heart of defence.

Jurgen Klopp has persevered with Simon Mignolet between the sticks, making just one change to his first XI from last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at Hull City.
