Liverpool now hold a two-point lead over Chelsea in the early-season Premier League standings, with the Blues' 100 per cent start ended by a goalless draw at West Ham United on Sunday.
Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk faces a fitness test ahead of Wednesday's League Cup clash with Chelsea, although fellow defender Dejan Lovren is available, manager Juergen Klopp said on Tuesday. Since then he's [been] brilliant.
The Spain worldwide has been Chelsea's first choice right winger in the current season and when he is not available, manager Maurizio Sarri prefers the Brazilian, Willian, to deputize for him.
The Croatia worldwide has yet to feature for the Premier League leaders this season having returned from the World Cup with a stomach injury but may be included in Jürgen Klopp's squad for the third round tie at Anfield having resumed full training.
"It won't be zero changes, but it won't be eleven", said Klopp.
Think you can name them?
"Dejan looks quite good, trained completely normal four times I think", Klopp said.
The video, which went viral on social media, shows the young boy being filmed in the stands during the match holding a paper sign asking the Egyptian star, who scored in the game, for his jersey and shouting: "Please Salah..." [But] starting the season and you see immediately the impact, all my respect. This team is experienced, they've won the title already, 80 per cent of them probably twice, so they know how it works.
With regards to further injury updates, Klopp added: "Divock Origi is not far away but it's an ankle thing, a very unfortunate situation, and we will be very careful". But it will be a good team, believe me! Tottenham have had a little bit of a wobble, a good result for them yesterday but it will be really tight and it always is with the top six.
