Liverpool hoping to have Jordan Henderson back vs Tottenham

Tottenham vs Liverpool

The midweek Premier League action draws to a close on Thursday evening.

The only tie of the day will see Liverpool face a trip to north London, for a clash with Tottenham.

Both sides, particularly Liverpool, though, head into the game in questionable form.

Spurs have slipped down to 6th in the English top-flight, after picking up just two wins from their last five. The Lilywhites, though, do boast at least one game in hand on all of the sides above them, and could potentially move back up to 4th with a win on Thursday.

As for Liverpool, they, of course, saw their unbeaten Anfield record come to an end vs Burnley last week. The Reds were also ousted from the FA Cup by bitter rivals Manchester United at the weekend.

In fact, Jurgen Klopp’s side are now winless in their last five Premier League ties, and sit a full seven points adrift of table-toppers Manchester City.

Henderson could feature vs Spurs

Ahead of what is no doubt set to be a closely-contested affair, though, the Merseysiders appear to have been handed a boost.

This comes in the form of the potential return of a key figure.

The player in question is Jordan Henderson, who has missed the Reds’ last two outings with a muscle injury.

But, as per a report from the Telegraph, Jurgen Klopp is hopeful of having his skipper return vs Spurs:

Klopp has since, on Wednesday, confirmed that both Henderson and Joel Matip should be available in 24 hours’ time:
