Redknapp was due to fly from London to Liverpool ahead of the 8pm kick-off after his tax evasion trial was adjourned until Tuesday.

However, technical issues with the plane means Redknapp, whose side beat Wigan 3-1 in their last league match, will be absent from the encounter.

Kevin Bond and Joe Jordan will oversee the Tottenham side in Redknapp's absence as the club aims to return to within three points of second-placed Manchester United.

The game is currently set to go ahead at Anfield despite heavy fog on Merseyside. A pitch inspection was conducted little more than an hour-and-a-half before kick-off and the game has been given the green light.
