Do This Or Players May Start Leaving, Liverpool Legend Warns Jurgen Klopp

The lack of depth in Tottenham's squad is clear - particularly the lack of a quality backup striker to Kane - after being the only Premier League team to make no offseason additions. This mature display marked them out as the most likely challengers to champions Manchester City.

If passed fit, Firmino could make a milestone appearance - and also move up to third in the club's Champions League goalscorers list.

Klopp knows it is early days, but he is delighted with the progress his team has made as he hailed their best performance of the season so far.

"They know how to win big games and to resist the pressure". The Liverpool front three is well known for pulling players out of position with clever runs and if Kimpembe can be isolated, Liverpool could score several goals.

Klopp was able to call on club captain Jordan Henderson and England striker Daniel Sturridge from a bench that also included nearly £60m worth of summer signings in Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri, plus Alberto Moreno and Joel Matip.

Moreover, it was following the September global break last season that any hopes Liverpool had of competing for the title faded.

The Brazilian scored Liverpool's second goal before being substituted in the 74th minute after a nasty clash with Jan Vertonghen in which he was poked in the eye.

Jurgen Klopp's side will take on PSG at Anfield in their opening Champions League group-stage game on Tuesday evening. This is more than any other player.

A win and Liverpool are well on their way to escaping this hard group.

Talk of a genuine title challenge intensified after four wins from four to start the season.

He was never ever going to be able to repeat that this season.

Tottenham open their Champions League campaign at Inter Milan bidding to banish the growing belief that they lack the steel to win major silverware.

"But I watched Paris, I watched them last year and I watched them this year, and it is impressive", Klopp said. "We'll see the full package, the football package, and we have to cope with that".

"Klopp has the squad for it and this is the year that, if you're Klopp, you've got to win a trophy".

"But, on the other side, it's quite hard to make a preparation because they have never played against us".

Inevitably, something which is part of life at Anfield, expectations will soar in line with the emotion that fuels their support and Klopp must deal with that.

James Milner has started the season in excellent form and has looked like a new signing playing on the right of a midfield three for Liverpool.
