Pearce's view is slightly different with the former Manchester City boss advising Liverpool to at least progress out of the Champions League group stages. A lot of people play our games when we play Champions League football and that's our job, that we do the best we can do in all those games. "Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work".
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. That would be amusing!
"It is not my advice it is only how I describe the reality".
Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's worldwide commitments over the past week. The club he's more interested in. How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it?
"What I would say is Liverpool have solved the problems they had against Spurs previous year, particularly at Wembley when Kane scored and Lovren made a couple of mistakes".More news: Mass evacuations ordered as Hurricane Florence approaches US

Liverpool face Tottenham on Saturday looking to keep up their 100 per cent record in this season's Premier League.
It is the start of a packed schedule of seven matches - including Champions League matches against Paris St Germain and Napoli - in 23 days.
That means Klopp, who has so far made just one change to his starting line-up, will have to utilise his squad and that is likely to see a debut for summer signing Fabinho.
"He is a physical worker, he uses his body every day". We don't play Champions League or what?
"It's absolutely no problem", he said. I don't like the situation. It's not that I like to say Fabinho is full of energy and I tell him he's not involved.
"It is only the job to do sometimes because we have players that work together that much longer". When we talk about midfielders like Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta, he's like this type of player, but, please, he needs to take my words in a very positive way. Then we're all humans and we can all make mistakes.
