spurs-0-liverpool-5New signing Federico Fazio could make his Tottenham debut this weekend, although Roberto Soldado is a doubt to face Liverpool.

Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino has yet to decide whether centre-back Fazio, who arrived from Sevilla on Wednesday, will feature at White Hart Lane on Sunday.

Soldado may be absent again with a neck and back issue, while Kyle Walker is still missing.

Summer signings Mario Balotelli and the fit-again Adam Lallana could make their Liverpool debuts in Sunday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Three players who sustained problems during Monday’s 3-1 loss at Manchester City, Alberto Moreno, Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson, are to be assessed ahead of the Spurs match.

Jose Enrique will also have a late fitness test, but Jon Flanagan is not yet ready to return as he works his way back to fitness from his knee injury, and Daniel Agger and Oussama Assaidi remain sidelined.

With the potential for two high-profile debuts at White Hart Lane, the excitement level has risen.

Spurs could use Federico Fazio in defence following his arrival from Sevilla while Mario Balotelli, back in the Premier League, should feature for Liverpool after the 3-1 reverse at Manchester City.

If the Italian is Liverpool’s new Luis Suárez, he will hope to match the Uruguayan’s brace of goals in last season’s 5-0 win in north London.
