Digger: Klopp doesn't need silverware this season


Liverpool have made the flawless start to the new Premier League season, winning 12 points out of 12 by securing victories against West Ham, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester City.

Just as importantly for the home team, key midfielder Dele Alli is also expected to miss the match against the Reds, after picking up a hamstring injury with England.

Spurs had won their opening three league fixtures before the Watford reverse and Mauricio Pochettino's side are fifth ahead of the visit of early leaders Liverpool.

He will need to be on top of his game once again this season as Tottenham face yet another tough Champions League draw in Group B alongside Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven.

World Cup-winning France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has been fined 50,000 pounds ($65,000) and banned from driving for 20 months for drunk driving.

Goalkeeper and captain Hugo Lloris will miss the match, just as he did prior to the global break, after suffering a thigh strain.

Tottenham's preparation for a game against a Liverpool side boasting a 100 percent record so far has not been ideal.

Shaqiri said to the Daily Mirror: "He wants that we work hard - always - on the pitch".

Sky Sports pundit Merson insists that Liverpool's threat on the counter could be the difference between the two sides and he can see Jurgen Klopp's side continuing their flawless start to the season.

"You need to deserve to win and perform in the way that you believe you can beat your opponent".

Barnes said in an interview with the Daily Star: "What's good now is Liverpool, with the harmony and the fact Klopp's there and everybody loves him, the trust in him and the way the team's playing, that's all I'm interested in".
