Liverpool midfielder Lallana doubtful for Tottenham clash

Mauricio Pochettino is set to have an nearly fully fit squad to choose from when Tottenham Hotspur visit Liverpool on Sunday (4 February) after Spurs revealed on their club website that both Harry Winks and Serge Aurier had returned to full training.

The two sides are separated by just two points, with the Reds - who defeated Huddersfield Town 3-0 in midweek - in third and Spurs fifth.

Tottenham have only won twice at Anfield in the Premier League, but will be buoyed by a new signing of their own, Lucas Moura, who has now joined up with the squad, even though this particular game may be too early for him to make his debut.

Although Tottenham are not great travellers, they have won seven points in the last three games, after gaining only one point in the five games before that.

Spurs may be without new man Lucas Moura after the winger arrived from PSG in a £25 million deal.

"The two things that happened after his big injury were in the 10 or 15 minutes after he came on". But it's different to signing Neymar, Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo. There are many reasons why this happens that we can not win most of the games that we play away from home. The question was about whether Liverpool and Tottenham were clubs of a similar size and shape: high-velocity attacking football, aggressive pressing, on-trend coaches, a top-six rather than a top-three budget and long on critical acclaim but short on trophies.

Harry Winks is back in full training.


Spurs have no suspended players.

"They are different to Manchester United (who Spurs beat 2-0 in mid-week at Wembley) but we'll try to replicate our performance and be on the same level as we were on Wednesday".

"They have the most similar game to City, not the same but similar".

Kieran Trippier provided a number of excellent crosses against United and may continue in the role against the Reds, though Pochettino may prefer the pace of Serge Aurier against the Reds' pacey front-line. It was all down to some very uninspired performances up front and an absolute shambles at the back that resulted in Klopp removing Dejan Lovren from the game before halftime. There have been times in recent weeks when the Tottenham bench has had a threadbare feel.

In the United States, the game will kick at 11:30 ET and shown live on NBC Sports Network.

Liverpool's Adam Lallana is a doubt for Sunday's Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur with the club not willing to risk aggravating the midfielder's muscle injury, manager Juergen Klopp said. Despite their FA Cup defeat to West Bromwich Albion last weekend, Liverpool are a class act capable of beating any side on its day.

Liverpool have only lost one of their last 23 home Premier League games against Tottenham (W15, D7) - that sole defeat coming in May 2011.
