Tottenham Hotspurs will be without skipper Lloris due to a thigh injury, while Dele Alli has also been ruled out of the game after picking up a hamstring strain on international duty.
Questions were raised over Harry Kane’s fitness during the international break too, but Pochettino has insisted that the World Cup Golden Boot winner is at 100% and he will lead the line this weekend as he bids to become only the third player to score in five successive Premier League home games for Spurs.
Lucas Moura has joined Kane in attack so far this season and is the club’s top scorer in 2018-19, but the return of Son Heung-min after a victorious Asian Games campaign could see the Brazilian drop into a slightly deeper role.
An alternative option for Pochettino is for him to deploy a more defensive lineup, with Eric Dier coming in for the injured Alli and acting as a holding midfielder alongside Mousa Dembele.
Liverpool, meanwhile, will be without Adam Lallana after the midfielder withdrew from the England squad due to a thigh injury, but backup goalkeeper Simon Mignolet is fit following a hand problem.
Klopp has made just one change to his starting lineup so far this season and, while more changes will be expected throughout the upcoming run of tough games, he is unlikely to tinker too much with a winning formula just yet.
Tottenham possible starting lineup:
Vorm; Alderweireld, Sanchez, Vertonghen; Dembele; Trippier, Eriksen, Lucas, Davies; Kane, Son
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Henderson, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane
