Liverpool vs Tottenham – Top Fantasy Picks On BalleBaazi: Premier League 2021-22

Liverpool vs Tottenham – Top Fantasy Picks On BalleBaazi: Premier League 2021-22

Liverpool are set to face Tottenham in tonight’s late-night kickoff at Anfield. With the Reds still a point behind City, playing a day before Pep Guardiola’s side and putting them under pressure will be the aim for Liverpool. Tottenham are also fighting against Arsenal for the all-important fourth spot, so the game is a must win for both teams.

Let’s have a look at the players you should pick on the BalleBaazi app for this match.


Alisson – 8.5

Liverpool’s Alisson has been a sensation since joining the club. His influence on Liverpool’s defensive robustness is massive.

The Brazilian is leading the charge for the most clean sheets this season. He has recorded 20 clean sheets, seven more than Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris. With three consecutive clean sheets in the league against Newcastle, Everton and Manchester United, Alisson is the clear favourite for this position.


Trent Alexander-Arnold – 9

Another easy pick for your fantasy team is Trent Alexander-Arnold. Arguably the best in the world in his position, the right-back has recorded 12 assists in the Premier League this season which is the second-most in the top flight.

The 23-year-old did not feature in the last game against Newcastle as Klopp decided to rest a few key players after the first leg win against Villarreal.

However, Trent has registered 6.3 accurate long balls, 2.4 accurate crosses per game and averages 1.2 tackles and 1.3 interceptions per game as well.

He is one of Liverpool’s most creative players, and should be a part of your fantasy team for this weekend.

Virgil Van Dijk – 8.5

Virgil Van Dijk is the best centre-back in the Premier League. After what looked like a career-ending injury last season, his resurgence to the top level has been exceptional.

The Dutch international is a key part of Liverpool’s ball progression. He has registered an 89% overall passing accuracy and 81% passing accuracy in the opposition half. He has also completed 4.8 long balls per game and his distribution could get you valuable points.

He’s a world-class player, and should be a straight pick.

Cristian Romero – 8.5

Tottenham’s summer signing from Atlanta has been one bright spark in a rather disappointing season for the club.

Romero has been one of the most crucial components of Antonio Conte’s side and the Argentine averages 2.9 tackles per game and 3 clearances per game.

In possession, he has been excellent as well, with an 87% overall passing accuracy this season. Romero is one of the best ball-playing centre-backs in the league and could be pivotal for Spurs in this game.

Liverpool’s defenders, Joel Matip and Ibrahima Konate are tough competition for a pick amongst defenders, but Romero has been superb for Tottenham this season and is an interesting pick to explore.


Thiago Alcantara – 8.5

A player with guile and class, Thiago Alcantara, has elevated Liverpool’s game considerably. His performance in the 4-0 win against Manchester United was also outstanding.

Due to his brilliance on the ball, his work off the ball is often overlooked but he’s a very critical part of Liverpool’s midfield.

The 31-year-old averages 2 tackles per game, and also has an 89% overall pass accuracy. But perhaps the most telling statistic is his 87% passing accuracy in the opposition half which is central to Liverpool’s attacks after turnovers and in transition.

Although he’s unlikely to score he could be a useful choice for your fantasy team.

Rodrigo Bentancur – 8.5

Since joining the club in January, Rodrigo Bentancur has been a key figure in Antonio Conte’s midfield. He has forged a strong partnership with Pierre-Emile Højbjerg in the middle of the park.

Bentancur averages 2.2 tackles per game, an 89% passing accuracy and an 85% accuracy in the opponent’s half making him a formidable choice for your fantasy team this weekend.

Bentacur’s distribution could prove vital for Spurs in the game tonight and he could also pop up with a goal.

Fabinho – 9

Fabinho is another great choice to pick for your team. He has had an excellent season and has become a critical part of Klopp’s side.

His influence in possession and out of possession has been huge for the Reds. Fabinho has won 64% of his aerial duels and has also averaged an 87% passing accuracy in the Premier League this season.

Despite not being known for scoring goals, he has scored 5 times this season and is in form after scoring against Villareal in the Champions League.


Heung-min Son – 9.5

A fan favourite, the ever brilliant Heung-min Son could prove to be a great pick this weekend. The South Korean is second in the race for the golden boot with 19 goals this season. He is three behind Salah, who is his opponent this weekend.

In Tottenham’s 3-1 win against Leicester City, he was involved in all three goals, scoring two and assisting one.

One of the Premier League’s best players for Spurs for a few seasons now, Son is on the verge of another tremendous league season, which is why he’s a great pick for your fantasy team.

Mohamed Salah – 10

Arguably the best player in the world this season, Salah’s form took a slight dip after returning from AFCON.

However, his form has improved lately, with goals and assists in consecutive games against Manchester United and Everton. He also scored a goal in both legs against Villarreal in the Champions League.

With 22 goals and 13 assists in the Premier League this season, Salah would be the best pick for you this weekend.

Captain & Vice-Captain Pick

Both Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohamed Salah are close for these picks. However, Salah would be a better pick for the captain this weekend due to slightly better recent form in the Premier League, while Trent would make a great pick for the vice-captain role.
