Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are missing for Tottenham against Liverpool

Speaking to the Daily Telegraphahead of Liverpool's match against Tottenham on Saturday live on Sky Sports the Netherlands worldwide said: "I met Pochettino when I left Newcastle". Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

That is bad enough for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino but worse was to come when Alli picked up a hamstring knock while on England duty, and that means he will play no part against the Reds, who head to Wembley with a 100% record in the league this season. Find out by following our live matchcast. We have to play football.

"Speaking about Marcus, I think I can expect that Sunday I'm going to be highly criticised for not playing him tomorrow, because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and some of them have a problem with some compulsive lies", said Mourinho.

"Gary should come over and tell me how that works".

Last season's Champions League runners-up open their campaign at home to Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday and, though Klopp admits he must rotate with seven games to play in 22 days, it will not be to dismiss the competition that Liverpool have won five times. How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it?

"We have players that worked together now for much longer; he comes from another league, a completely different system which Monaco played, to us".


"To focus on one competition can only be if you are already out, or almost out, or if it's late in the season".

Liverpool and Spurs kick off in the early Saturday game.

Spurs have won three of their four Premier League games so far, losing at Watford before the global break and will be desperate to bounce back.

Liverpool are expected to be genuine title challengers to Manchester City this season and people said the same about Tottenham after a landmark win at Manchester United.

"In 2016-17, Marcus Rashford played 32 Premier League matches, 11 Europa League matches, including the final, three FA Cup matches, six League Cup matches, including the final, and the Community Shield". "But it was more a wake-up for the players, that we can not do it like this".
