Latest Liverpool news: Serge Aurier a doubt for crucial Liverpool-Tottenham clash

Tottenham have been dealt another blow ahead of their crucial clash against Liverpool with Serge Aurier picking up an injury, according to the Daily Star.

The right-back captained the Ivory Coast in their 3-0 win over Rwanda in an African Cup of Nations qualifier but had to be replaced in the first half.

The report claims that the right-back picked up a hamstring problem and could be out for two-three weeks.

Aurier’s loss will be a blow to Mauricio Pochettino’s side, and Eric Dier is another Tottenham star who picked up an injury during the international break.

The English midfielder had to be replaced in the 5-0 win over the Czech Republic. Dier will not feature for the Three Lions against Montenegro and is expected to return to Spurs for further treatment.

Losing two first-teamers would be a blow for any side, and hopefully, we can take advantage of the situation at Anfield.

The Reds know that they cannot drop any points in the battle with Manchester City for the Premier League crown.

Tottenham are in a tough race too as Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are battling Spurs for a top-four spot.
