Jurgen Klopp's first game in the Premier League ends goalless. A hard fought contest of few chances didn't quite live up to expectation, but the new manager should be content with a clean sheet.

FULL TIME: Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Urgh, what a waste. Moreno, from a very tight angle, blasts one straight into the wall and the ball rolls out for a throw in.

Liverpool win a free kick right on the edge of the Tottenham box as Alli hooks a leg across Milner. Late chance for Liverpool deep into injury time.

Three minutes of time added on. Lucas picks up a yellow for a late challenge on Kane.

Just a couple of minutes remaining at White Hart Lane. About 30 yards out from goal, Emre Can changes gear and shifts the ball past his man before letting fly with a powerful low effort that flies narrowly wide of Lloris' post.

More changes, Jordon Ibe replaces Coutinho while Andros Townsend comes on for Lamela.

It's all been a bit messy, but Tottenham almost fashion something through Eriksen, who rides a couple of challenges as he cuts in from the left towards the box. Liverpool defenders seem afraid to put a challenge in, allowing the Dane to shift the ball into the edge of the D where Kane is waiting. He winds back his right peg and smashes a shot on goal, but Mignolet is able to palm it around the post. Not for the first time today, Kane should have done better.

Moreno defends well, reading Lamela's attempt to cut in from the right and bringthe ball out of danger. He then finds Coutinho, who attempts to drive up the other end but Alli sticks with him and dilligently wins the ball back.

Another change for Liverpool as Joe Allen comes on for Lallana. 10 minutes left.

Both sides continue to spurn chances. Milner first of all recieves the ball on the inside right from Coutinho but his attempt to control the ball is fairly awful. Tottenham launch a counter with Kane winning a corner off Clyne. Skrtel partially clears, but only as far as Walker who is well placed to take the shot on but lifts a woeful effort well over the bar.

Kyle Walker looks to be struggling at the moment, with Kieran Trippier warming up in case. Still no sign of a goal here.

Adam Lallana goes down in the box, prompting calls for a penalty. It was Delli Alli who was jostling with the ex-Southampton man and while he did appear to have an arm on his shoulder, it didn't seem enough for a penalty.

It's been a very tame last five minutes or so at White Hart Lane. Neither side seems to have a clue as to how they are going to break down the opposition.

Tottenham try to play the ball out but a sloppy pass invites Coutinho to drivee forward down the inside left. He plays the ball back across to the edge of the box where Lucas is approaching and well... you can probably guess the rest. The Brazilian hasn't scored for five years and drags this effort tamely wide.

Eriksen's delivery as been unusually poor today but this one is a bit better, almost finding Alderweireld free at the near post but Mignolet scuttles off his line to collect.

Skrtel and Kane, who have been battling all game, clash again but Kane this time wins the free kick. Eriksen stands over this one out to the left.

We are back underway for the second half and within seconds James Milner is down in a heap. Looks like he was winded after Delle Alli crashed into him while challenging for a header.

HALF TIME: Tottenham 0-0 Liverpool

Liverpool come alive for the first time in a while with Origi springing down the inside right flank. He cuts an inviting ball back across goal with Coutinho lurking but Walker does well again to see it out.

Tottenham are piling the pressure on, but Coutinho relieves some of that for a moment, wonderfully turning his man to bring the ball away from danger. Kyle Walker eventuallt catches up with him but does very well himself to get across and usher the ball out of play.

Close from NJie comes close again! Hesitation between Clyne and Skrtel allows the Cameroon forward to nick in and shimmy away from both of them to cut in from the left. He has room to run into but instead lets fly with a vicous effort that is moving all over the place, but eventually creeps just over the cross bar.

Two great chances for Tottenham! Harry Kane suddenly finds himself one on one with Mignolet inside the left of the box, but it's a poor attempt that's driven straight at Mignolet who saves with his legs. Delle Alli watches the ball drop out of the air before hammering his follow up effort on goal but a terrific block from Sakho lifts it away from goal.

Milner is shown a yellow card. Looked a harsh one following a challenge on Rose, but it was his third or fourth offence.

At the other end of the pitch, Lloris charges out to sweep the ball clear with Coutinho looking to pounce on a loose ball.

Mignolet denies NJie! Lallana gives the ball away in his own half, allowing Kane to bring the ball forward on the edge of the box. He slips the ball out to Njie on his right who is unmarked just inside the box and opens his body up to curl one towards the far corner with the outside of his boot. It's a fine effort, but Mignolet reads it well and palms the ball to safety.

Danny Rose takes on Milner down the left, powering his down the touchline before pinging a cross towards the box. The ball instead cannons off the arm of Clyne who really didn't know much about it, allowing Mignolet to rush out and just about save the ball from going out for a corner.

Liverpool's increased tempo in their pressing game is very noticable today. Tottenham, who have out run every one of their opponents so far this season, haven't had any space to operate, leaving Harry Kane a rather isolated figure up front.

A poor Liverpool back pass forces Mignolet to come racing out of goal towards the byline. He beats Eriksen to the ball, but leaves the Dane in a heap on the ground in the process. Moments later there is another heavy challenge as Milner crashes into Rose, who had skipped past the England midfielder. Tottenham get the free kick near the corner flag, but fail to really test the Liverpool defence.

Tottenham have been very sloppy so far, needlessly giving the ball away and iniviting pressure onto themselves. NJie is the guilty one this time, allowing Lallana to spring forward. He finds the overlapping run of Coutinho who tries to square the ball for Origi in the box but Vertonghen gets across to intercept.

Lallana works a bit of space for himself on the edge of the box but rolls a weak shot straight at Lloris who collects.

Clinton N'Jie comes on for the injured Chadli. The ex-Lyon forward terrorised a knackered Manchester City before the international break, can he make the same sort of impact against a much tighter Liverpool unit?

Liverpool hit the bar! From another corner, Can nods the ball onto Origi who heads towards the top corner, but is denied by the woodwork. Skrtel, positioned just behind the Belgian, was perhaps better placed to take that on, but Origi can count himself unlucky there.

Doesn't look good at all for Chadli, he's receiving treatment but a rueful shake of the head from Pochettino suggests his afternoon is over.

Chadli is now gingerly limping off to the sidelines with what looks like an ankle problem.

Tottenham have been camped in their own half for the past few minutes as Liverpool turn the screw. Can and Sakho just for the same ball and crash into each other, but Klopp's men retrieve the ball and continue to probe. Kyle Walker makes an absolute hash of a clearance but finally get a break when Chadli is fouled.

Adam Lallana shows neat footwork down the right to slip past Rose, forcing Alderweireld to come across and concede the corner. Skrtel and Can both go up for it, but in the end the ball is tamely nodded back towards Lloris.

Danny Rose is able to get forward for the first time down the left and lifts an inviting ball across to the far post where Lamela is lurking but Sakho can clear.

Origi gets on the ball for the first time and attempts to drive upfield but Dembele shackles himself to the forward and wins the ball back.

We are moments away from kick off now, can Spurs spoil Klopp's big day?

Klopp, speaking to BT Sport, says he tried to sign Divock Origi for Borussia Dortmund and has plenty of faith in the young Belgian. On the subject of Daniel Sturridge, the manager says his injury 'isn't serious' but a precaution after a collision with Jordon Ibe in training.

Victory for Liverpool today will move them to within a point of Manchester United and Arsenal but Jurgen Klopp has an almighty injury list to contend with if he is going to do that. Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke, Roberto Firmino, Jordan Henderson, Jon Flanagan, Danny Ings, Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren and Jordan Rossiter all sit out for various reasons.

A knee injury rules Daniel Sturridge of today's game. His rotten luck with injuries continues and it gives Jurgen Klopp a real problem with Divock Origi his only centre forward available. It's the Belgian's first Premier League start.

BREAKING: Mousa Dembele starts in midfield for Spurs with Dele Alli dropping into a deeper midfield role. Danny Rose returns to the starting XI after recovering from injury.

Tottenham team to face Liverpool: Lloris (c), Walker, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose; Alli, Dembele; Chadli, Eriksen, Lamela; Kane

Subs: Vorm, Davies, Trippier, Wimmer, Clinton, Townsend, Winks

BREAKING: Daniel Sturridge is injured. Again. Divock Origi leads the attack for Jurgen Klopp having named a very youthful bench.

Liverpool team to face Tottenham: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Sakho, Moreno, Can, Lucas, Milner, Lallana, Coutinho, Origi

Subs: Bogdan, Toure, Allen, Ibe, Sinclair, Teixeira, Randall

BREAKING: Daniel Sturridge is ruled out of today's match with an injury

We'll have your official line-ups in the next five minutes or so. How Mauricio Pochettino solves his problems in midfield is probably the most interesting issue ahead of that. Will the Argentine be tempted to move Toby Alderweireld into midfield to fill the void left by the suspended Eric Dier? The Belgium international has been moved further upfield in the past, but will it be worth breaking up his partnership with Jan Vertonghen?

TEAM NEWS - Liverpool: Liverpool were rocked by the news of two serious knee injuries in the space of 24 hours this week. Joe Gomez was the first to fall, suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury while on international duty for Engand Under-21s which will require surgery. A day later, forward Danny Ings suffered the same fate. Both players are now likely to miss the rest of the season. Elsewhere, Jurgen Klopp is without Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke, but Philippe Coutinho is likely to feature.

TEAM NEWS - Tottenham: It's been a fairly awful week on the injury front for both teams. Mauricio Pochettino is without last season's first choice midfield pairing Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason, while Eric Dier's suspension means the Argentine's options in midfield are looking very meagre indeed. Son Heung-min is another absentee having missed games against Monaco and Swansea with a foot injury, while Alex Pritchard is facing a couple of months on the sidelines after undergoing ankle surgery. Danny Rose is fit again, but Pochettino may have to do some serious tinkering to fill the void in the centre of the park.

As you may have heard last week, Jurgen Klopp is now the manager of Liverpool football club. The dour atmosphere that hung over the club towards the end of Brendan Rodgers' reign in charge has instantly evaporated with the arrival of the charismatic German and there is renewed life at the club. Not that the two-time Bundesliga-winning managaer is getting carried away with it all.

The size of the task at Anfield is an immense one, with his first test a tricky one against the recently-crowned Manager of the Month for September in Mauricio Pochettino.

This afternoon's fixture has rarely been short of goals in recent seasons. Unfourtunately for Tottenham, most of those have been netted by today's opponents, having lost their last five games against Liverpool, conceding 18 goals in the process.
