Tottenham boosted as injured star fit for vital Liverpool clash

Tottenham Hotspur star Toby Alderweireld is in line to feature against Liverpool after recovering from a stomach bug picked up earlier in week, Daily Star reports.

The 27-year-old was unable to feature for the Belgium national team when they suffered a 2-1 friendly defeat to Portugal on Tuesday.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino will be boosted by his return given that he is already without international teammate Jan Vertonghen, who is still sidelined with a knee injury.

Spurs head to Anfield knowing that anything less than a win will not be enough as they are hoping to overtake Premier League leaders Leicester City to the title.

They are currently behind the Foxes by only five points, with seven matches still to be played before the end of the campaign.

Alderweireld has already featured 42 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far managing to score three goals while providing another two assists in the process.
