Tottenham Vs Liverpool Preview; Multiple Injures For José Mourinho, Possible Lineups, Teams News: Matip Returns

José Mourinho is having problems keeping his players fit! 

Tottenham Hotspur play host to Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday evening looking to boost their chances of finishing the season in the top four.

Having picked up just one point from games at Norwich City and Southampton, Spurs now sit six points adrift of Chelsea.
Liverpool’s hectic schedule forced Jurgen Klopp to take drastic measures for Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Everton, but even a much-weakened line-up pulled through with a 1-0 triumph.

9 Things That Has Happened Since Liverpool Last Lost A Game At Home

The Reds had to ride their luck early on, but grew in confidence before Curtis Jones fired in a superb decider on 71 minutes.

Midfielder Pedro Chirivella said: “It was a starting XI who probably never played together and in the first 20 minutes it was chaotic.

“After that, we got control of the game in midfield and started passing the ball to each other and creating chances.

“When Liverpool play our way, then it’s hard for any team, no matter who the players are on the pitch.”

That performance showed clearly the confidence and self-belief Klopp has instilled throughout his whole squad, which has helped them power 13 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

The Reds have only dropped points once in 20 games in this competition and are on course to run away with the title.

Liverpool Team News 
While there is trouble in Tottenham's camp, the Reds are celebrating as more key first team players are back in training and will likely feature at White Heart Lane.
The return of Chamberlain, Matip and Shaqiri is surely a big boost for Klopp. With Naby Keita and Fabinho return around the conner, it is realistic to say that Liverpool can only grow from strength to strength as the season goes.

Jose Mourinho also has a number of injury issues to contend with ahead of welcoming the top-flight leaders to North London.

Kane’s injury is a particular blow but perhaps unsurprising given he had played 90 minutes in every single game under Jose Mourinho, apart from the loss away to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Ndombele, meanwhile, appeared to have concerns about his conditioning prior to the festive period but was started in two consecutive games by the Portuguese manager.

It now leaves Spurs seriously short with 17-year-old Troy Parrott the only recognised specialist striker in the squad, although Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura, and Dele Alli have previously been used as forwards.

Here, is Gutsynaij rounds up Tottenham's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their first contest of the year in front of their own supporters.

Hugo Lloris
Status: Out

Type of injury: Elbow

Possible return date: Unknown

February has been pencilled in as the possible return month for Lloris, who has been sidelined since dislocating his elbow against Brighton & Hove Albion in October.

Ben Davies

Status: Out

Type of injury: Ankle

Possible return date: Unknown

Davies has been absent since sustaining an ankle injury in Mourinho's first game in charge against West Ham United. The Welshman may not return until at least the end of January.

Danny Rose
Status: Major doubt

Type of injury: Muscular

Possible return date: January 18 (vs. Watford)

Rose sustained a muscular injury last week, resulting in the Englishman being sidelined for the previous games. Mourinho has predicted that the left-back will be absent for 'a couple of weeks'.

Harry Kane

Status: Out

Type of injury: Hamstring

Possible return date: Unknown

Having been withdrawn against Southampton on New Year's Day with a hamstring injury, Kane is expected to be sidelined for at least a month. Mourinho has suggested that the issue 'is not a small one', hinting that the forward is unlikely to return before the middle of February.

Tanguy Ndombele

Status: Out

Type of injury: Hip

Possible return date: January 11 (vs. Liverpool)

Ndombele lasted just 25 minutes of the match against Southampton before being withdrawn due to a hip problem. With the Frenchman having missed out at the weekend, it remains unlikely that he will be in contention for a starting role against Liverpool.

Possible Lineups 

Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Alexander-Arnold, Wijnaldum, Chamberlain, Henderson, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
