In Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool have the multi-faceted defensive linchpin they have been craving. "We have seen that we can do it", Klopp said. Yes, we learned, the experience was that one game can be completely different to another.

And Klopp is sure Kane will find his best form, even if he hopes it comes after Saturday. We had in all the games really good moments.

The global break was long and arduous but with Premier League action set to resume today, supporters will be able to feast their eyes on the most exciting game of the week at Wembley.

"I would not give it [last year's match] a second thought if you [the media] would not remind me of it", Klopp said after the match. "This type of game shows you that we need to improve if we want to contend in the end to win some title".

Henderson thinks they are now playing probably the best football since he joined the club from Sunderland in 2011 and is desperate to back up their performances with silverware.

Against Liverpool, he was substituted in the 73rd minute for Son, the South Korean making his first return since winning the recent Asian Games.

Having played for both Newcastle United and Liverpool, the Netherlands worldwide had never scored in 58 games away from either St. James' Park or Anfield, with all 18 of his previous Premier League goals having come at home. "If he wants to take it, take it ... but of course his potential is to be a very, very good player for England and Tottenham, first for Tottenham and then if England believe that he can help them for England too", the Spurs manager added.

"I'm really happy about the performance and proud of the performance because the boys came back on Wednesday/Thursday and we trained yesterday".

"I don't have the personality to wait for problems, but I'm old enough to know they will come", Klopp said.

It remains to be seen which players make the squad for the Tottenham game but the bench we saw against Leicester last time out of Mignolet, Sturridge, Keita, Moreno, Lallana, Shaqiri and Matip is a world away. "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him". If it was given it's 2-2 if we score the goal.
