Liverpool bring back Gerry Byrne

March 31, 1967
Both full back Emlyn Hughes and centre forward Ian St. John are unable to play for Liverpool in their make-or-break game at Tottenham to-morrow because of injuries (writes Michael Charters).

Hughes damaged an ankle at Arsenal on Tuesday and will be replaced at left back by Gerry Byrne. St. John, who suffered a groin injury in the home game last Saturday against Arsenal is still feeling the effects of it, and Alf Arrowsmith retains the centre forward spot.

The return of Byrne is the only change from the side which drew at Arsenal where Arrowsmith scored the side’s first goal in five matches.

A party of 13 players travelled to London to-day, with Geoff Strong and Ian Ross being added to the team. One of them, will be substitute.

Tottenham: Pat Jennings, Joe Kinnear, Cyril Knowles, Alan Mullery, Mike England, Dave MacKay, Jimmy Robertson, Terry Venables, Alan Gilzean, Jimmy Greaves, Frank Saul.
Liverpool: Tommy Lawrence, Chris Lawler, Gerry Byrne, Gordon Milne, Ron Yeats, Willie Stevenson, Ian Callaghan, Roger Hunt, Alf Arrowsmith, Tommy Smith, Peter Thompson.
