Trevor Sinclair sends a strong message to Liverpool players on Twitter

Trevor Sinclair has urged Liverpool players not to be dumb.

Former West Ham United winger Trevor Sinclair has taken to social networking site Twitter to send a message to the Liverpool players.

The former Manchester City star has urged the Reds’ stars not to be dumb and to control their enthusiasm.

Sinclair gave his advice in the wake of Danny Ings’s season-ending knee injury earlier this week.

The 23-year-old England international striker suffered a cruciate ligament injury in his first training session with new manager Jurgen Klopp, as reported by BBC Sport.

Liverpool will return to Premier League action on Saturday afternoon, when they take on Tottenham Hotspur away from home.

The Reds will head into the game at White Hart Lane in North London with confidence, although Tottenham themselves will be determined to pick up all three points.

The Merseyside outfit are 10th in the league table at the moment with 12 points from eight matches, just three points behind fourth-place Crystal Palace.
