Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota, Conor Bradley - Liverpool injury news and return dates ahead of Tottenham

Liverpool will look to keep their faint Premier League title hopes alive when they host Tottenham at Anfield on Sunday.

The Reds will need to hope both Manchester City and Arsenal slip up in the run-in with just three games left for Jurgen Klopp's side. Liverpool are five points behind the league-leading Gunners and four behind Manchester City in second.

And Klopp has several injury concerns within his squad to deal with ahead of Sunday's fixture against Spurs. Captain Virgil Van Dijk missed training on Thursday whilst Diogo Jota is no closer to a return. In more positive news, Conor Bradley could come back into contention after returning to training following an ankle injury.
