Liverpool star Alberto Moreno has confirmed he is ready to return to action for a Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday (2 April) after he missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury.

The Spanish left-back said that he has taken advantage of the Reds trip to Tenerife during the international break to complete his rehabilitation ahead of the last crucial part of the campaign.

The 23-year-old full-back has been a regular for manager Jurgen Klopp since the former Borussia Dortmund boss took over from Brendan Rodgers in October 2016. However, the Spaniard missed Liverpool's Premier League defeat against Southampton and the European League draw with Manchester United after he damaged his hamstring in preparation of the trip to Old Trafford.

Klopp was forced to restructure his back-line with the inclusions of James Milner and Jon Flanagan in those games, but it looks like the manager will have Moreno back for the coming game against title-contenders Tottenham.

The former Sevilla star confirmed the good news to the official Liverpool FC wesbite: "I started training with the team in Tenerife. Everything went well and I haven't felt anything else. I hope to be ready for the next game against Tottenham and for the rest of the season.

"The main thing was training and keeping fit but it's true that after training we had some moments to relax and go to the spa and the beach, and it helped to clear up our minds a bit."

"However, during the trip, we didn't only relax as we were always thinking of improving and making the most of the training. Overall, it was a great experience."

Moreno hopes the trip to his homeland will help Liverpool finish the current season on a high. Nevertheless,The Spaniard is convinced that the Merseysiders can win the Europe League trophy while aiming to end the league in the best possible way. Liverpool currently sit in ninth position of the Premier League table, seven points behind the Champions League entry zone.

"We need to keep working to get there," he continued. "We are closer to winning the Europa League title, although we still have a few games left. However, we still believe that we can win it. The Premier League is more difficult but we are working really hard to get a higher position in the table."
