Liverpool get double fitness boost ahead of Premier League clash with Tottenham

1 Mins read

Liverpool has received a double fitness boost ahead of Premier League trip to Tottenham, as Jurgen Klopp revealed he’s likely to recall two key men for the trip on Thursday.

The champions head to north London in the midst of their worst run of form under the German boss, who saw his side knocked out of the FA Cup by rivals Manchester United on Sunday.

Despite that exit it is the three draws and two defeats in Liverpool’s last five Premier League games which will worry Klopp more, as the Reds have stumbled from the top of the table and down to fifth in recent weeks.

Spurs are one of the teams who will be looking to take advantage of that downturn, but Klopp will be buoyed by the positive news surrounding both Jordan Henderson and Joel Matip ahead of the game.

Henderson has missed Liverpool’s last two matches with a muscle issue, but appears to be winning his fight to feature in north London.

Klopp is hopeful of seeing his captain return to the fold for the game, and that he’ll be able to play him in his preferred midfield position because of availability of Matip.

The Cameroonian defender was left out of the FA Cup trip to Old Trafford, but that was only seen as a precaution ahead of a busy run of Premier League games.

Speaking at his press conference on Wednesday, Klopp said: “Hendo and Joel trained y’day with the team fully. Like always we have to wait and see overnight but they trained.”

Matip looks set to partner Fabinho at the heart of the Liverpool defence, with Henderson moving into midfield after playing at the back in his last two matches.

After Tottenham they go to West Ham on Sunday, with the Hammers having gone above them in the table with their win over Crystal Palace on Tuesday.
