The Belgian defender - outstanding in an ever-present season so far in the Premier League - missed out on international duty this week after falling ill.

But he's back in training at Hotspur Way and available for selection at Anfield.

"Toby was ill but he’s okay," said Mauricio after training today (Thursday, March 31). "He has trained with us Tuesday, Wednesday and today. He’s good, he’s fully fit and no issues for Saturday."

Toby was one of 16 first team squad regulars to report for international duty.

All bar Erik Lamela - who was back in South America - trained today. "Everyone is okay," added Mauricio. "We need to assess a few players like Erik Lamela, who only arrived back (from Argentina) today but we’re happy with how everyone has come back. We will now assess them all tomorrow and then make decisions.

"Jan Vertonghen (knee, pictured above training today) is very close, Clinton Njie (knee) is doing well but needs a little more time and Nabil (knee) is out after his surgery."
