Premier League table-toppers Liverpool have been boosted by the news that attacking midfielder Xerdan Shaqiri has returned to first team training just in time for the crucial Premier League meeting with Tottenham Hotspur.
Liverpool travel to Tottenham Hotspur looking to maintain their unbeaten run which spans 37 games dating back to January 2018 when they lost to Manchester City.

Liverpool had earlier been boosted with the news that defender Joel Matip is back in full training after two months out.
The Reds have had to negotiate the last one month with just two fit centre backs namely Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
The return of another centre back in Joel Matip is a welcome development for Liverpool and manager Jurgen Klopp, while another centre back Dejan Lovren is not far behind in his quest to return to full training.
The return to full fitness for both Joel Matip and Xerdan Shaqiri has offset the loss of James Milner to injury in what was the only casualty from the FA Cup third round win over Merseyside rivals Everton last weekend.
