We begin our set of picks with the selection of Liverpool’s Alisson Becker. Having gotten go ahead, the shot stopper will be looking to show the world why he’s regarded as one of the finest shot stoppers.
Despite Liverpool likely to take to the middle without a regular CB today, the side is still in with a fair shout of emerging with a cleansheet. The club has compensated extremely well for all its missing names, a side whose true mettle has been shown by its willingness to navigate its way past the adversary.
It’s a narrative which sees us indulge in the services of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho from the side. We also have the two names grace our side from Tottenham with Eric Dier and Toby Alderweireld helping the club to four successive cleansheets.
What injuries have done to Liverpool is give the club a real insight into what Curtis Jones has to offer. Asked to deputise for injured names, the young player has been electric for the club to make a real name for himself.
Georginio Wijnaldum has been asked to play a role further up the park, one which saw him score against Wolverhampton. Tottenham meanwhile will see us opt for Moussa Sissoko owing to his capability to do the dirty work at the back.
Tottenham’s leading scorer, Harry Kane just can’t stop scoring at the moment. He snagged the side’s opening goal against Crystal Palace, one which took him to 9 goals for the season.
Heung-Min Son who assisted that goal now has 10 goals and 4 assists, numbers which make him a must have pick for us. Liverpool meanwhile see us opt for top scorer Mohamed Salah after his penalty against Fulham helped rescue a point for the club.
