GOOD NEWS for Liverpool fans as Tottenham suffer four injury blow ahead of Liverpool match on Sunday  



Liverpool meet Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday in a must-play game for both sides. We’ve got the latest on Spurs injuries coming into play.

Liverpool’s confidence is restored match after match. The Reds have won their last three Premier League games in a row, giving them an away chance of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.

Next up for Liverpool is a clash against Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday. It is equally important that Jürgen Klopp’s team emerges victorious from this match, considering that Tottenham are, despite their horrendous recent form, a challenger for the final place in the Champions League.

Liverpool will go into the match strongly, given their wins against Leeds, Nottingham Forest and West Ham, while Tottenham could not enter the game worse, with their last outing a 6-1 away humiliation against Newcastle.


On the injury front, how will Spurs line up for the Liverpool match?

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who was due off at half-time in Newcastle’s demolition, could play against Liverpool after missing his side’s match against Manchester United on Thursday. Interim boss Ryan Mason says the chances of Lloris playing are mixed. “We’re still not sure about Thursday’s game,” Mason said (via when asked if Lloris would be available for his game against United. “Obviously he had a muscle issue, so we’re still seeing that set in. Time will tell.”

Emerson Royal is still out of action after meniscus surgery in March. The former Barcelona defender could return to the field after the duel with Liverpool.

Midfielders Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur are out with long-term injuries. Former Juventus midfielder Bentancur has been out this season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Ryan Sessegnon should also be out as he hasn’t been seen since early February.

However, Ben Davies managed to return to the starting line-up after being called on the bench against Newcastle and Man United, while Clément Lenglet returned to the squad after returning from injury.


5 for 4 – Trent Alexander-Arnold breaks Liverpool’s niche record in ‘crazy’ move.

Trent Alexander-Arnold is used to reaching new heights and he did it again with his assist count in April, which could still grow.

The Liverpool number 66 had only managed his first assist of the season in January, an unprecedented for a player who has been at the heart of the Reds’ creative hub for more than five seasons.

But the month of April showed his pace, a period which coincided with him adjusting his role in the Liverpool system to propel him further up the midfield.

Against Arsenal there was a late equalizer assist from Roberto Firmino before four quickly followed against Leeds (two assists), Nottingham Forest and West Ham.

That’s five Premier League assists in four games, all of which occurred in the month of April and which resulted in a record niche for Alexander-Arnold. According to Opta, the 24-year-old is the first Liverpool player to get five assists in a single month of a Premier League season.

There are a host of Reds who have won four in a single month, including Steven Gerrard, Luis Suarez, Jordan Henderson, Mo Salah, Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane – plus Alexander-Arnold himself last season.

But only one has managed to reach five so far and that total could be increased when Spurs travel to Anfield on Sunday, the last day of April.

Alexander-Arnold’s change of role has ignited his season and Klopp has been as vocal as the fans in his assessment of the right-back’s recent performance.

“The stuff Trent played – wow,” he gushed, speaking to BT Sport after the win at West Ham. “It was absolutely insane.”

The Scouser was again heavily involved with 99 passes and 124 touches during Wednesday’s game, bringing a composure to his game with Joel Matip saying: ‘It was really fun to watch them play [in midfield]’.
