Press conference: Jurgen Klopp provides injury news ahead of Tottenham clash

Liverpool are preparing to face Tottenham in the Premier League midweek game on Wednesday, December 16. Ahead of the game, the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp gave a press conference and provided injury update as well as spoke out on the game and more. On Houllier: "Only the best [memories]. Met him a few times, text a lot. Very supportive man, great coach, even better human. Very warm personality and a big miss for LFC. A true legend of this club."  On Matip: "Only two days ago he left with a back spasm. We will see. Today is another session and then we will see." On Mourinho: "He showed obviously he can comeback, if it was that. Very impressive what he has done at Spurs. The way they play this year is really good. He turned them into a results-machine. Performances, if not at best, they still win, defend collectively. Impressive."  On title race: "At the moment it looks like a lot of good teams in the league. That keeps us all together. That is nice for the [neutrals]." On Spurs threat: "If we keep [Son and Kane] quiet, they have a lot of others. A proper team with threats. Bergwijn is important to counters. Ndombele needed a bit longer but now 100% there. Lo Celso, Sissoko, Hjobjerg, a proper unit in midfield. It works well." On Kane and Son: "Harry Kane, of course, at all times, you have to make sure he is not involved and with Son it is the same. The relationship they have has clicked properly. A lot of good things to say about Tottenham. We will still try to win the game."  On Keita: "Naby maybe [back]. Was involved in extended warming up. Another session today, we will make a decision. Others...no. No-one else. Naby has no rhythm because of different things that is the truth. Only two days between games doesn't help. Is he ready? You make that decision. In the rehab process you can't replace proper football training we don't have a lot of that."  source - LiverpoolECHO
