JOE COLE is set to make his Liverpool comeback in Sundays Premier League clash at Tottenham.

The midfielder, who joined the Reds on a free transfer from Chelsea this summer, has missed the last five matches with a hamstring injury.

Joe should be back for Sunday, said manager Roy Hodgson. We were hoping 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.

Hamstring injuries are tricky and Im afraid we can only rely on what the sports science people tell us, and if they say he needs more time we just have to wait.

Hodgson is keen to see his side build on Saturdays 3-0 victory over West Ham.
