Jurgen Klopp is confident that full-backs Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson will be fit to return for Liverpool’s clash with Tottenham this weekend.
England international Alexander-Arnold missed the midweek Champions League victory over Genk with a virus, whilst fellow full-back Robertson also picked up a knock in the 4-1 win over the Belgian side.
Klopp is confident the duo will both be fit ahead of a crucial meeting this weekend, but says Xherdan Shaqiri will once again miss out as he continues his recovery from a calf problem.
“I spoke with Andy and he is fine. Trent looked fine too. He was ill enough not to travel, which was not a good sign, but he seems to have recovered now,” Klopp said.
“Shaq I also spoke with. His muscle will take a longer time to heal.”
Tottenham Hotspur will come into the fixture with confidence increased having secured a 5-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in midweek, Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min both scoring twice in the emphatic win.
The North London outfit will be looking for a positive result following a disappointing start to the new season, and have a full bill of health to choose from aside from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’ absence with a dislocated elbow.
