Tottenham v Liverpool — Big Match Focus

Morrison: Only one title challenger out of Liverpool and Spurs


What do we do?

"The Champions League - if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch", Neville said. Klopp told a news conference. That would be amusing!

"Speaking about Marcus, I think I can expect that Sunday I'm going to be highly criticised for not playing him tomorrow, because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and some of them have a problem with some compulsive lies", said Mourinho.

"We don't play Champions League or what?"

"When we can not use him as a striker, we still work with him to try and fulfil his potential". I don't understand, do we play our kids or what?To focus on one competition can only be if you are out, or almost out, or if it's late in the season.

"If it's late in the season that you see you have a chance to do that or do this and all that stuff".

"It doesn't work like this. But it's an opinion".

Liverpool are still looking to win their first ever Premier League trophy and this year may represent their best chance to date.

Wijnaldum performs a very specific role for Liverpool but he could have been doing that for Spurs if not for the Merseyside club's promptness two years ago.

Before Tuesday's meeting, Hossein Jaberi Ansari, a special envoy for Iran's foreign minister, said a "good result" could emerge. An estimated 3mn people live in Idlib - the last major stronghold of active opposition to President Bashar al-Assad.

"It's not a flawless situation, that is clear", Klopp said.

It is the start of a packed schedule of seven matches - including Champions League matches against Paris St Germain and Napoli - in 23 days. We have to do that, to rotate.

"No one has to tell us what we have to do", he went on.

Spurs play host to Liverpool and will look to put an end to the Reds' unbeaten streak this campaign but given the way Klopp's side has gone about things thus far, the Lily Whites face a tough test.

"The plan was - and is still - he will make us better and that is what we are working on. Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got".

However, former defender Higginbotham seems to think that the game will suit Liverpool FC more than it does Spurs.

"It was a kind of a wake-up call, to be honest", Klopp said. He didn't play as often as he wished, I can imagine that, but he is still developing and still improving. "But I think both are very good players". But of course the game Saturday will be completely different.

"But on the other side we still knew we had a good team".
