Klopp bemused by Neville's Champions League advice

Adjust Comment Print

Yesterday, Manchester United manager Mourinho hit out at his critics over his handling of Marcus Rashford - aiming a shot at Klopp and Solanke in the process. Salah, Firmino and Mane are on top form again, can Salah continue his goal record vs Tottenham, or will Mane or Firmino be the main man v Spurs?

Spurs have won three of their four Premier League games so far, losing at Watford before the worldwide break and will be desperate to bounce back.

The Sky Sports pundit was of the opinion that Klopp's best chance of delivering Liverpool's first ever Premier League trophy would come if he didn't try to juggle every competition this term.

"I don't like the situation; it's not that I like to say to Fabinho, who is full of energy and desire and wants to be involved, "you are not involved this weekend". It's the same for all of us, we have all the same things. Then it's about mentality. When you analyse all the circumstances maybe it was right that happened early rather than at the end. "We are in a similar situation, trying to chase the team at the top". Yes, we learned, the experience was that one game can be completely different to another.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he could make some changes to his line-up, having kept pretty much the same team all season, especially with a tough run of fixtures ahead. I think we are really on a good way with that. We have to play football.

Former Manchester United man Gary Neville, however, believes that the Reds would be better off pursuing the Premier League rather than the Champions League.

The pair join the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth in the stands, although there has been some good news on that front, as they are expected to return to training imminently and could be available for selection in the not too distant future.

"Mauricio Pochettino has the same issue to get ready for the game tomorrow, that's how it is". We have to be as good as possible to reach the highest for us.

But now with Dele Alli, Hugo Lloris and possibly Son missing, Pochettino could soon learn to regret that decision.
