The champions have failed to win their last five Premier League games, a disappointing run that has culminated in them dropping down to fifth in the table, just one point ahead of Jose Mourinho's side.
Tottenham come into the fixture having won six of their last eight games in all competitions and, in truth, should be favourites given the Reds recent lull.
However, there were signs of a Reds resurgence, despite defeat, against Man United in the FA Cup. Mohamed Salah struck twice to break a long goal-scoring drought for Jurgen Klopp's side and the hope will be Liverpool can now build on that display.
A defeat would be a crushing blow, with Spurs going two points ahead with a game to spare, pushing the Reds down to sixth. Klopp has insisted his side are fired up to prove their doubters wrong and there's no better time than tonight to do just that.
Jordan Henderson is back fit after missing the Reds' last two outings through a "minor" muscle injury and the skipper could come straight back into side.
Joel Matip trained as normal and, if fit enough, is certain to start at the back. However, it's uncertain who starts alongside him in central defence, with Fabinho missing from the Reds' pre-match warm-up in Leyton Orient's ground on Thursday morning.
