Klopp explained his decision to leave Nunez out, telling Sky Sports the Uruguayan is carrying an injury.
“Darwin pretty much ruled himself out a little bit. He brought something with him from the international break a little bit a bone thing around the knee sometimes,” the manager explained.
“It’s not massive but sometimes more painful than other times. So, yesterday [Friday] at training, he said it’s not possible, so we took him here overnight.
“The doctor said that it will improve again and it has improved so he’s ready to come from the bench but he’s not ready to start and that’s the reason.
“Cody is obviously a top option and we could have brought in Diogo [Jota] as well.”
In Liverpool’s way are an in-form Tottenham side led by new boss Ange Postecoglou, who has the hosts playing with confidence and style.
Nevertheless, Klopp’s team will still expect to create enough chances to win the match. Should Liverpool win, it will be their third away Premier League win of the season.
It took until February to achieve that number last season.
