Klopp gives injury update ahead of Spurs game
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp gave a general injury update ahead of his side’s trip to play Spurs in London on Thursday night.
Thankfully, Klopp confirmed that there were “no new cases” to be concerned about. Of course, Liverpool are still without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keïta, Diogo Jota and Kostas Tsimikas.
The good news is that Jordan Henderson has returned to full training and may be available for the Spurs match. Joël Matip is also still fit after being rested for last Sunday’s FA Cup defeat at Old Trafford.
Speaking at his pre-match press conference, when asked for any injury news, Klopp said:
“No new cases [injuries] and Hendo and Joel trained yesterday with the team fully.
“Like always we these things we have to see how they react overnight and what they can do today, but they trained yesterday.”
Liverpool have gone five Premier League games without a win and four without a goal. Klopp and his men will be very keen to stop the rot against Spurs and turn their form around.
With Manchester City now seven points clear of Liverpool at the top of the table, there is certainly a lot of work to be done by The Reds in the second half of this campaign.
