Fabinho and Naby Keita must start under Klopp against Tottenham today

Liverpool have enjoyed a perfect start to proceedings as they continue to impress under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds almost enjoyed success in Europe last season so they’ll be desperate to go one better this time round, with the Premier League title also high up on their list.

However, Liverpool will travel to Wembley Stadium to face Tottenham Hotspur in their next Premier League encounter. The North London club have been impressive this season despite not spending a single penny during the summer, but they did suffer defeat at the hands of Watford last time out.

Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp has some decisions to make in terms of team selection, with a couple of players possibly forcing their way into the side.

With that in mind, these TWO Liverpool men must start today…

Fabinho

The Brazilian was incredible during the international break as he continues to grind out positive performances in the hope that he earns his first start for Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp has mixed and matched his midfield three so far this season, with James Milner, Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum being preferred recently. But, with a tough Spurs side up next, perhaps the German should insert Fabinho into his lineup to help protect the defence.

Naby Keita

Naby Keita has already proven his worth since making the move to Liverpool during the summer transfer window, with four Premier League appearances already under his belt.

However, the 23-year-old has been dropped to the substitutes’ bench recently for no apparent reason, so he’ll be desperate to work his way into contention for a starting place against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Guinea international has explosive power at his disposal and leaves defenders in his wake whenever he’s on the ball, so Liverpool could definitely do with his talents against a Spurs side that have looked vulnerable in defence.
