A select round-up of morning news relating to Liverpool

It is fair to say that yesterday’s results went very well indeed for Liverpool. A win today for the Reds against Tottenham Hotspur and Brendan Rodgers’ side can go two points clear at the top of the table.

In early team news, the BBC reports that Liverpool have no new injury concerns going into the match. With that in mind, they suggest that Raheem Sterling may have to continue his spell on the substitutes’ bench.

Spurs are set to recall Emmanuel Adebayor but Kyle Walker is out with a groin injury.

In other news, Rodgers believes Luis Suarez’s value could soon hit the £100million mark.

The Uruguayan striker is not for sale after a sterling season, but when asked if he could fetch such a fee his manager is quoted by the Mirror as saying, “He is certainly heading towards that.

“If you look at the top people in the world, the Ronaldos, the Messis, those who have been doing it for five or six years, he would be right at that level.”

And finally, the Express reports that the Reds are one of a number of clubs interested in Lazio midfielder Antonio Candreva.

With doubts remaining about the Italian’s long-term future, the Reds are said to be monitoring his situation along with Premier League rivals Arsenal and Manchester United.
