Gary Neville Makes Huge Claim on Liverpool's Champions League Ambitions This Season

Gary Neville Makes Huge Claim on Liverpool's Champions League Ambitions This Season

"I'm looking forward to the game [against Tottenham], especially now [because] in the next few weeks we have a lot of games, a lot of good games, hard games", he told Sky Sports. He was asked how important it is for Klopp to get some silverware this year, Barnes said: "I'd rather not win a trophy and finish second, seven or eight points off the top".

"We're not playing at our very best, Jurgen has admitted that and I agree".

"We know Harry Kane very well and have worked with him for more than four years and we know it's not a situation that worries us".

He has been much more generous about the Reds and their football over the last couple of years, but Neville admits that as a Manchester United fan he would loathe seeing Liverpool win the league.

"The World Cup takes a little bit of the legs out of some of your players but they'll start to come into consideration and give us more on the day". They have won all 4 of their opening Premier League fixtures.

"This game is bigger for Tottenham than it is for Liverpool - this is a game Spurs can't afford to lose, they've got to have a go especially after what happened at Watford".

I have no doubt that Salah is here to stay as one of the great offensive forces in the league, but a repeat of last season is simply too much to ask.

Evans is confident his old club now have the strength in depth that is required at the top level. I'd argue instead that while it's fair to predict Man City and Liverpool will ultimately vie for the title, it's far too early to suggest no one else will hang in the race for a while.

He said: "It's competition for places". And at this point we'd have to say so far, so good.

For instance, Klopp was not completely satisfied with the 2-1 win at Leicester before the global break.
