Spurs trio ruled out of Liverpool trip

29th March 2019, 13:58 by Aidan Perkins

Tottenham trio Eric Dier, Serge Aurier and Harry Winks are all unavailable for Sunday's trip to Liverpool due to injury.

Dier has a hip injury, while Winks has been struggling with a groin problem and both will not be available for the clash at Anfield.

Aurier has also been ruled out with the hamstring strain he sustained on international duty with Ivory Coast in the past fortnight and will play no part as Spurs look to put a dent in the Reds' title bid with their first win at Anfield since 2011.

Meanwhile, Spurs have been training at their brand-new stadium ahead of the first official game there on Wednesday against Crystal Palace.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino has been bowled over by how good the state-of-the-art facility is, declaring it "the best in the world".

"The stadium is amazing," he told reporters. "It is the best in the world and we can confirm that now.

"Every single space in the stadium is the best that I have seen in my life - you can't compare it with another.

"The fans, the players, the staff and their patience will pay off when they are there and see the reality of the project."

"The stadium will be a massive boost for the fans and our players, too."
