Liverpool XI vs. Spurs: 6 players out including £50m 'genius'; Klopp confirms big 'changes'

Liverpool are yet to beat Spurs during Jurgen Klopp's reign, but could it be third time lucky tomorrow?

Pre-match news:

* Jordan Henderson is serving a one match suspension.

* Moussa Sissoko is banned for the game after accepting a violent conduct charge.

* Klopp on Mignolet: "There is a 100 per cent chance he will play.

* Klopp on possible changes: "It's likely that there will be a few changes, but I didn't make a final decision until now about this".

* According to Sky Sports today: "Michel Vorm is set to start in goal for Spurs. Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld remain out with injury, as does Marcus Edwards".

If Klopp is to make changes, then the likes of Ragnar Klavan, Daniel Sturridge, Lucas Leiva, Divock Origi, and/or Danny Ings are the players most likely to get some game time.

Ings has 4 goals in 3 games for the U23s this season, and with Spurs playing a weakened team (as confirmed over the weekend by Mauricio Pochettino), this is surely a golden opportunity for Ings to get back to competitive games for Liverpool.

Alas, Ings may end up on the bench again as Sturridge is ahead of him in the pecking order, and didn't feature in the last game. Possible lineup:

---------------- Mignolet
A.Arnold --- Klavan - Lucas --- Moreno
------- Lallana -- Can -- Wijnaldum
---- Mane ----- Sturridge -- Coutinho

* Kane: £50m-rated. Ridiculously described by Jamie Carragher as a 'genius'.
