Tottenham Hotspur host Liverpool on Sunday hoping to beat Jurgen Klopp’s side for the first time in five years.

However, manager Antonio Conte will have to deal with several injury issues when selecting his team.

Son Heung-min went off injured during the first half of Spurs’ Champions League victory over Marseille in midweek, having suffered a fracture to his eye socket after coming off worse from an aerial challenge with a defender.

Spurs’ attacking woes are compounded by the fact that Richarlison remains out injured, while Lucas Moura is now also a doubt for the Liverpool game.

However, star winger Dejan Kulusevski could make his long-awaited return from injury – though it remains to be seen whether the Swede is fit enough to start the game, having been out for several weeks.

Cristian Romero isn’t expected to feature again for Spurs before the World Cup with a calf problem.

Finally, Conte and Spurs will be forced to sweat over the status of Rodrigo Bentancur, who has reportedly struggled for fitness this week despite his starring role in the win over Marseille. As things stand, however, the Uruguayan looks set to start once again at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this weekend.
