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

While Kane has scored twice in four league games for Tottenham this season, his displays against Watford and for England against Spain have caused concern that he is suffering from the effects of the World Cup.

Tottenham Hotspur have been rocked by the news that both Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli will miss Saturday lunchtime's crunch clash with Premier League leaders Liverpool, who are bidding for a fifth win on the bounce when they take on a depleted Spurs side at Wembley. In only two previous top-flight seasons have they won their opening five games (1990-91 and 1978-79).

Klopp hit back at the former Red Devils skipper by claiming that he did not understand how to concentrate exclusively on one competition when at a club like Liverpool, who are expected to compete on all fronts.

He said: 'Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work.

"I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost".

The Merseyside outfit earned huge amounts of praise for their fine form in Europe least season as they reached the Champions League final but ended up losing to Real Madrid. That would be amusing.

"It's our fifth season at Tottenham and if someone knows him really well I think we do".

'Unfortunately he is not fit at the moment but I am sure he will be back in a pretty intense period with seven games in the next three weeks'.

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

Despite their European run last in 2017/18, Neville believes that the Reds are going to have to put the Champions League to one side, if they are going to win their first league title for over 25 years. "We don't play Champions League or what?" We have to play football.

After heavy investment in the playing squad over the last 12 months, Liverpool are better to equipped to rotate than they ever have been during Klopp's time at Anfield.

"What I would say is Liverpool have solved the problems they had against Spurs previous year, particularly at Wembley when Kane scored and Lovren made a couple of mistakes".
