Liverpool team news and injury ahead of Tottenham Hotspur



Liverpool will look to extend their Premier League winning streak to four games when they take on Tottenham

Having clinched maximum points from each of their last three top-flight games, the Reds refuse to fly the white flag in the Champions League race as they currently lie seventh in the table, a point behind Tottenham Hotspur following the Lilywhites’ draw United against Manchester.

Diogo Jota was withdrawn just before the hour mark in midweek after suffering a blow to the back, but the Portuguese attacker should be available against Tottenham at the weekend

Klopp revealed ahead of the win over West Ham that Ibrahima Konate was struggling to complete a full week of training, although he hoped he would be fit to face West Ham. The Frenchman ultimately didn’t make the squad but he is expected to be back in the squad on Sunday

Roberto Firmino was forced back to the sidelines earlier this month with a new muscle problem and although he is on course to return before the end of the season he will not be available on Sunday.

Calvin Ramsay’s debut season at Liverpool was cut short by a serious knee injury a few months ago and the right-back will not play again this season as he recovers from surgery. As was the case with Ramsay, midfield protégé Stefan Bajcetic was last seen recovering from a season-ending hamstring injury this season.

There were initial fears that Naby Keita might have played his last game for Liverpool due to a muscle strain he suffered during the international break in March. However, Klopp has now revealed that the Guinea international is back in full training, although Sunday’s game may come too soon for the injury-plagued midfield.

‘Not the Liverpool trademark’ – Ben Jacobs reviews Jurgen Klopp’s Jude Bellingham u-turn ahead of summer transfer window

‘Not Liverpool’s trademark’ – Ben Jacobs assesses Jurgen Klopp’s U-turn at Bellingham ahead of summer term

Ben Jacobs has said Liverpool need a “restructuring” this summer and the signing of Jude Bellingham would prevent that.

Jurgen Klopp was believed to have made the Borussia Dortmund star his main transfer target for the upcoming spell, until he recently decided it would be unwise to spend so much money on a single player when his side needed a major overhaul.

Despite winning our last three games, we have struggled with consistency all season and Jacobs explained why it was a wise decision on the part of our German tactician to end his hunt for the teenager.

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he said: “The sad reality for Liverpool is that they know they need a makeover, and Bellingham is perhaps the most outstanding player they can get and appreciate, but when the majority of the budget goes to him, he could be at the expense of the renovation.

“It almost became a choice for Liverpool, especially without a Champions League, or they wanted to go all in for Bellingham in a protracted race and bidding war, with no guarantee of success, and then find out that either they have it but they can’t bring them others either didn’t get into what they wanted or didn’t get it and wasted their time and energy getting sucked into a bidding war. “It’s not Liverpool’s trademark.”

It has been a shock to almost all Liverpool fans to know that we are no longer in the running for Bellingham.

We understand that there are many other players out there, but with his class and leadership at a young age, he seemed to be the answer to many of our current problems.

His transfer fee would have been over £100m, but considering he could be a mainstay on our side for the next ten years, it would have made financial sense, wouldn’t it?

Some senior figures at Anfield are hoping the Birmingham City Academy graduate can spend another season at Dortmund to ensure they have time to make the 100% right move for him and his career.

At this point next year, Bellingham is approaching the final 12 months of his current contract with the Bundesliga side, so it will be interesting to see what decision he makes over the next few months.
