Liverpool have been given a boost with the news that Roy Hodgson looks set to have midfielder Joe Cole available for selection in this Sunday’s Premier League clash away to Tottenham.

Cole was taken off with a hamstring injury during Liverpool’s 1-0 victory over Bolton at the Reebok Stadium last month and subsequently missed the next five games.

Hodgson said today, “We hoped he would be back to face West Ham, but it has taken that little bit longer.

“Joe is not that far away really, so hopefully he will have recovered in time for Tottenham.”

Tottenham vs Liverpool gets underway at 4pm on Sunday, 28th November at White Hart Lane.
