Liverpool have had a hectic couple of weeks. They played against arch-rivals Manchester United last to last game week and had to pick up a hard-fought win against Tony Pulis' West Brom last weekend.
This might prompt Jurgen Klopp to rest some of his main players of the first team. This will also give him an opportunity to have close look at players like Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Alberto Moreno etc.
Tottenham too have had a hectic couple of weeks, they being in the UEFA Champions League this season. Keeping in mind their Premier League fixture in the coming weekend, which is against reigning champions Leicester City, Mauricio Pochettino might bench a couple of his star player.
