Watch Jurgen Klopp’s pre-Tottenham press conference in full


Premier League football will return with a bang after the worldwide break this weekend, with Tottenham and Liverpool locking horns at Wembley in Saturday's lunch-time kick-off.

"Gary should come over and tell me how that exactly works", Klopp told a press conference.

The Brazilian worldwide is likely to be excluded from the starting lineup once again against Tottenham, although one can expect him to be in contention when Liverpool return to Champions League action next week. That would be amusing!

The German was left baffled by the former Manchester United defender's assessment and said: 'It's a bit silly sitting in an office talking about football, it's different to doing the job.

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.

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said: "Quarter-finals of the Champions League, let City win".

Last season saw two titanic matches between the two - Tottenham destroyed Liverpool 4-1 at Wembley in October 2017, scoring three goals in the first half, and in the return fixture at Anfield it looked like Mo Salah had earned all three points for the Reds before an injury-time penalty from Harry Kane rescued a point for Spurs.

But a trip to Wembley this weekend represents their biggest test of the campaign so far, with the visit of PSG in the Champions League lying in wait next week. We don't play CL or what?

"It's absolutely no problem". I don't like the situation. I don't understand, do we play our kids or what? A lot of people watch our games in the Champions League and it's our job to do the best we can do in these games. We have to be as good as possible to reach the highest for us.

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