Jurgen Klopp bites back at Gary Neville over Champions League remarks

Jurgen Klopp bites back at Gary Neville over Champions League remarks

He feels that the club's summer signings will have been sold on the idea of turning out for Liverpool in the Champions League.

Tottenham look set to continue with second-choice goalkeeper Michel Vorm for the visit of Premier League rivals Liverpool in the Premier League this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp's side have won all four of the league matches so far and sit top of the table at this early stage. If Tottenham lose, will they struggle to get top 4, vs the likes of Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal?

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino spoke at a press conference and with Sky Sports specifically about the upcoming matches against Liverpool and the Champions League fixture against Inter.

A lot of people watch our games when we play Champions League and that's our job that we do the best we can do in all these games. That being said, the performances haven't been on the same level as some of the ones from previous year, with the latest one against Leicester being particularly poor. I don't understand, we play our kids or what?

It's not often that you will be able to back Spurs to win a home Premier League game at odds of [3.1], but if you fancy the hosts to take the three points, that's exactly the price you will get here.

"Playing Champions League football is why you can attract the likes of Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah and all the other players you want to name, Allison in between the sticks".

The game will be another test of the Reds' title credentials but John Barnes doesn't believe the outcome of the game will be remembered at the end of the season for being massively important in the race to win the 2018/19 Premier League title.

"I'll go for 2-1 Liverpool". When a striker does not fill the net and does not score goals, always you need to find some reason why but I think he is fit.

"With the two full-backs, I think Manchester City have the best two full-backs in the league and I think the next two best are Liverpool".

"We know Harry Kane well and have worked with him the last more than four years - and we know this is not a situation that worries us".

"Why? I think their method is exhausting for the front three [Salah, Mane and Firmino]".
