Tottenham v Liverpool — Big Match Focus

Harry Kane Tottenham 2018-19

Sir Alex Ferguson's 2007/08 side remain the only team in Premier League history to win the a league and Champions League double. "I just felt Liverpool wanted to come to an agreement quickly", Wijnaldum told the Daily Telegraph.

Jurgen Klopp has laughed off suggestions Liverpool should abandon the Champions League to focus on winning an English title (Nick Potts/PA).

Liverpool are still looking to win their first ever Premier League trophy and this year may represent their best chance to date.

The best news for the Reds is the number of players they have who are between 24 and 27, and theoretically coming into their prime.

"From my point it is all fine, but I know the situation isn't what some people expected but I can not change that".

Speaking to reporters, Klopp said on his new £43million man: "I don't like to compare players but we had similar question about Robbo and Oxlade and I'm not sure if Sadio (Mane) played from the beginning, but I think he had a full pre-season". How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

Wijnaldum performs a very specific role for Liverpool but he could have been doing that for Spurs if not for the Merseyside club's promptness two years ago.

"If you watch the Watford game again, you see we played so slow, so sloppy, from the beginning".

And, with Paris Saint-Germain to come in the week, Klopp says he's saving Henderson. We don't have a problem with young English players not being involved often enough. I think we are really on a good way with that.

"Mauricio Pochettino has the same issue to get ready for the game tomorrow, that's how it is". "But it was more a wake-up for the players, that we can not do it like this". But of course the game Saturday will be completely different. We have to be as good as possible to reach the highest for us.

"But on the other side we still knew we had a good team".

Lucas Moura has been Spurs' standout player this season, picking up a player of the month award for his opener in the 3-1 defeat of Fulham and brace in a 3-0 victory over Manchester United.
