Jurgen Klopp slams Gary Neville's Champions League advice

Neville, who won just ten of his 28 games at Valencia in 2015/16 before being sacked, pointed to Liverpool's front three as lacking cover and said that they should forget the Champions League altogether during an interview with The Times.

After a summer spending spree which saw Liverpool bring in several fresh faces, the general consensus is that the reds can mount a genuine title challenge under Jurgen Klopp this season.

Liverpool now sit joint top of the table with four wins from four and, galvanised by the summer purchase of Brazil No 1 Alisson Becker, have conceded just one goal so far in that impressive run.

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest".

The Merseyside outfit earned huge amounts of praise for their fine form in Europe least season as they reached the Champions League final but ended up losing to Real Madrid. An attacking game. Both teams play attacking football.

Given the manner of the defeat at Wembley last season, Liverpool will be desperate to beat Spurs when they travel to London tomorrow. We need to be really good because all the other teams are so good. To focus on one competition can only be if you are out, or almost out, or of if it's late in the season.

Tiredness could be an issue for Son, who played eight games in 26 days for his country, but his return after playing just ten minutes of Tottenham's league season so far will be greatly received by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

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

"I think they'll win this one but toppling Manchester City for the title will be so hard".

"It feels like we have 500 games in the next seven weeks". But now they can cope with that as there are not too many players who are going to run away from those two.

"I'll go for 2-1 Liverpool".

"It is going to demand a lot of energy from us - and to have a very good performance if we want to be close to winning".

Liverpool also remain in talks with former Manchester United coach Jack Robinson about becoming an assistant goalkeeping coach at the club, sources have told ESPN FC.
