Jordan Henderson might be available for Spurs encounter
In a season, where the England international has proved to be indispensable for Brendan Rodgers, injuries to both him and Steven Gerrard at the very same time, might prove to be a sour point in Liverpool’s dream start to the league so far.
Henderson suffered a blow in the match against West Ham, following Kevin Nolan’s reckless challenge that saw the West Ham captain sent off. Henderson has been wearing a protective boot since.
Liverpool believe Henderson has only suffered bruising to his ankle and are hopeful he will recover in time to feature at White Hart Lane
Suarez’ Premier League new goal tally- 15
The Premier League’s dubious goals panel has credited the Liverpool striker with the final goal in Liverpool’s 4-1 victory against West Ham.
Liverpool’s fourth goal was taken by Suarez from the edge of the box and it took a noticeable deflection off West Ham’s Joey O’Brien and was given as an own goal.
However, the panel have now declared it to be Suarez’ goal.
The Liverpool player now has 15 goals from 10 matches. He has widened the gap between him and City’s Agüero who has 12 goals in the competition.
Martin Kelly Happy with West Ham Minutes
The Liverpool defender has only made two substitute appearances for the club since his return for the club this season after an anterior cruciate ligament during a league match against Manchester United in September 2012, but is happy with the 42 minutes he has got on the field.
The 23-year-old defender feels he is repossessing his old ways after over a year long forced break due to injury.
Commenting on his 12 minutes on the pitch against West Ham, after coming on for fellow Liverpool youngster Jon Flanagan Kelly told the Liverpool Echo
I’m feeling a lot sharper. I’ve been doing some additional training over the past few weeks and I’m ready to push on. It has taken longer than I hoped to get back to this level but that’s been brought on by us not being in the Europa League or having much of a run in the League Cup.
Kelly goes on:
It’s been difficult to get game time as the manager has to pick his best XI to start every game. I was just made up to get on against West Ham and now I need to keep progressing. I’ve been working hard and I feel a lot fitter than back in pre-season
Kelly states that its tough to get back from injury but he is ready:
Ask anyone who has had a long-term injury and they’ll tell you it’s tough to get back to that level you were at before the injury. It takes time and it comes back slowly. Now I’m back nearly to peak fitness and I’m ready to go.
