Liverpool given injury boost ahead of Tottenham clash with 5 players returning

Liverpool have been given a considerable injury boost ahead of the home clash against Tottenham Hotspur with five players expected to be back in the squad.

Jurgen Klopp’s team has returned to the top of the Premier League table after a gutsy performance on the road which saw them win 2-1 against Fulham despite conceding an unexpected equaliser from former star Ryan Babel in the second half of the game.

With a clash against Tottenham Hotspur now looming after the international break, the Reds will need a fully fit team.

As reported by the Evening Standard, the likes of Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, Dejan Lovren, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita are all returning after the international break.

The fitness of Joe Gomez in particular will mean a lot for Jurgen Klopp with Virgil van Dijk still missing a truly reliable partner alongside him at the heart of the Liverpool defence as the team continues to push Manchester City as far as possible in the race for the league crown.
