Liverpool receive boost as Tottenham boss reveals duo are out injured

Liverpool receive boost as Tottenham boss reveals duo are out injured

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. How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it?

I still think Man City will win the league at this stage but as I said at the start of the season I think Liverpool will run them very close and it wouldn't be a massive surprise if they did win it.

"If it's late in the season that you see you have a chance to do that or do this and all that stuff".

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

Liverpool signed Brazil worldwide midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for a fee of up to £43.7m in May but he has yet to feature. 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.

Despite Liverpool sitting top of the Premier League, Klopp said it is not possible for the five-time European Cup winners to put off their Champions League campaign, which begins on Tuesday when Paris Saint-Germain visit Anfield.

Vorm, 34, certainly isn't short of experience as he made 97 Premier League appearances for Swansea before moving to North London in 2014 and he has played against Liverpool on nine occasions during his career.

The Argentinian said: "He needs to provide the team with his best, but maybe in the circumstances we are like a team, or when he plays with England it's maybe not the best conditions for a striker to give the best". It was after we won 7-0 v Maribor.

"I could have changed five or six players that day", he added on Lovren's 20th minute substitution.

"We have to think about the game tomorrow, then we see who we can choose for the next game".

Klopp has Simon Mignolet available again after a finger injury, Lallana is out for the game and faces a battle to be ready for next weekend while Oxlade-Chamberlain continues his recovery from a ruptured cruciate ligament.
