Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

Liverpool will look to continue their relentless march towards claiming the Premier League title when they travel to face Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's men find themselves 13 points clear of closest challengers Leicester City and have a game in hand, with last week's 2-0 win over Sheffield United marking a calendar year since Liverpool last lost in the league.

However, they will be conscious of the threat carried by Jose Mourinho's Spurs, who will be desperate to produce a big performance following a string of poor results.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of this fixture.
