Liverpool suffer defensive injury that could help Spurs

Tottenham Hotspur have a chance to close the gap between themselves and the League leaders, Man City and Liverpool, to just two points this weekend.

Spurs take part in the early Saturday kick off as they face a trip away to Sean Dyche’s Burnley.

Tottenham’s away record this season is the best in the Premier League, so you would be expecting a win for the Lilywhites, albeit a hard-fought one.

There is also a good chance of Liverpool dropping points this weekend, as they face a huge clash against their rivals Manchester United.

To make matters worse, Jurgen Klopp has now announced that Liverpool will be without Dejan Lovren for the game, leaving just Virgil Van Dijk and Joel Matip as the only senior first team centre backs.

If the Reds suffer any more injury blows or suspensions, they could be left extremely light in this position.

Manchester United may also be able to take advantage of the inconsistent Liverpool defensive partnerships this weekend.

Klopp said (Manchester Evening News): “There was not a real doubt, to be honest. It was not mind games but Dejan had no chance for the game today actually, I don’t think he even has a chance for the next game. He will take his time.

“It was clear Fabinho and Joel have to play tonight, so we trained it – we tried everything – and now hopefully the boys are ready.”

  1. I do not go so far as saying it’s good news but we went through this tough period so we know what it means. If it was ARSEnal or Chelsea or WHU it will more than good news because they hate us. Really I LOVE to hate them.
