Roberto Firmino: Passed fit for Dortmund clash

Roberto Firmino: Passed fit for Dortmund clash

Tottenham have won only one of their last 21 trips to Liverpool going into Saturday evening’s crucial Premier League clash at Anfield.

Team news

Liverpool have concerns over Roberto Firmino and Christian Benteke, who have hamstring and knee injuries respectively, but Divock Origi should be fit despite missing international duty with a thigh injury.

Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has recovered from a stomach bug he picked up on international duty with Belgium, but Erik Lamela took a knock while training for Argentina and is a doubt.

Jan Vertonghen and Clinton Njie are both still regaining fitness following knee problems.

Kick-off at Anfield is at 5.30pm.
