Jurgen Klopp laughs off Gary Neville’s comments about Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp laughs off Gary Neville’s comments about Liverpool

Tottenham play Liverpool in the Premier League 2018/19.

Liverpool's league form trailed off towards the end of last season as they went all the way to the final in Kiev, allowing Manchester United to clinch second spot.

Liverpool are top of the Premier League on goal difference after four...

Jurgen Klopp is bullish about Liverpool's chances as they prepare to take on Tottenham at Wembley, after a busy worldwide break for his squad.

"I know that's very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance [of winning the league] if they had free weeks."How would that work?" Klopp asked the reporter during his press conference.

Liverpool spent heavily in the summer, bringing in four new faces for almost £180 million, but Tottenham failed to sign a single player. Around this time three years ago, Jurgen Klopp took charge of his first game as Liverpool manager, against, you guessed, Spurs.

"If you want to win Premier League titles then you have to win these games, so Liverpool will be judged on this too". I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost. Past year I don't think even Gary Neville would have said 'let City win in the Champions League.' Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job.

And Barnes says Liverpool shouldn't be anxious about losing Salah next summer to Real Madrid, City or United, claiming the forward is only thriving thanks to Klopp's system.

"It's absolutely no problem", he said. Fabinho is full of desire and wants to be involved and I have to tell him "You're not involved this week" and that's not nice.

If the quiz does not load, you can play here.

He said: "It was a massive wake-up call for us to show more respect to the competition and to realise that in come circumstances you can beat Manchester United, different teams and opponents".

"I think Liverpool haven't started the season excellently, but they have done a good job, and out of all the teams out there they've looked the best, and in [Virgil] van Dijk they've got one of the best defenders in the world at the moment".

"It has to be in good shape when we get in it, and if it takes a little bit longer then it takes a little bit longer".
