TEAM NEWS: Sturridge returns to start for Liverpool’s Premier League clash against Tottenham

Daniel Sturridge will return in attack for Liverpool against Tottenham but Pepe Reina misses out so Brad Jones starts in goal.

Joe Allen makes way for the January signing, who has struggled with hamstring and thigh injuries this season. Luis Suarez, therefore, is expected to move out to the left wing.

Jones gets the nod in goal in the absence of Reina, while Philippe Coutinho continues through the middle after an impressive display against Wigan.

Liverpool: Jones; Johnson, Enrique, Agger, Carragher; Lucas, Gerrard; Downing, Coutinho, Suarez; Sturridge.

Subs: Gulacsi, Wisdom, Skrtel, Henderson, Allen, Shelvey, Sterling.

Tottenham: Lloris; Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto; Parker, Livermore, Dembele; Sigurdsson, Bale; Defoe.

Subs: Friedel, Naughton, Caulker, Gallas, Huddlestone, Carroll, Holtby.
