TOTTENHAM will aim to bounce back from their horror run of form in the Premier League as they travel to league leaders Liverpool.
Spurs drew 1-1 last time out at home to Watford on the back of a 3-0 loss to Brighton.
1 How Spurs could line-up for their tricky trip to Liverpool
Mauricio Pochettino is now fighting to keep hold of his job, but saw the pressure eased after a 5-0 win over Red Star Belgrade.
But the Argentine chief will need to make do without Hugo Lloris, who dislocated his elbow in the Seagulls battering.
Paulo Gazzaniga will likely start in goal, behind what is almost certain to be a back-five in a bid to keep Liverpool's rampant front-line at bay.
The 5-2-3 formation will allow Tottenham to play their three best defenders, Toby Alderweireld, Davinson Sanchez and Jan Vertonghen in the heart of the back-line.
Serge Aurier and Danny Rose are the most likely candidates in the wing-back positions.
Moussa Sissoko and Tanguy Ndombele would bring energy to the midfield ranks, with Poch's focus on the defensive end for the trip to Anfield.
That means no room for Christian Eriksen, with Giovani Lo Celso tipped to return from injury, alongside Son Heung-min in the wider attacking positions.
