Tottenham legend Ledley King on today's game:
"I expect an open, exciting game. Both teams like to press high, try to
force errors and are very capable on the counter-attack.
It's all about
which team can dictate their style on the game. Liverpool are at home
and will definitely look to press and keep a high tempo.
We have to be
composed under pressure, look to beat their press and if we do that,
there will be opportunities for us, I’m sure. We blew them away at
Wembley and it could be down to how the teams start the game."
The team-sheets are in here at Anfield, and Jürgen Klopp has made two changes to his starting line-up from Tuesday’s 3-0 win at Huddersfield Town.
Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold come in for Joel Matip and Joe Gomez. Matip is named on the Reds’ bench, but Gomez misses out altogether due to injury.
