Liverpool fans outraged at Gary Neville's comments on their Champions League pursuit

Grant SmithSep 15, 2018

"The front three are a real problem and a handful, so I think Liverpool will challenge Man City". How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it?

The former right-back suggested that if the German wants to win the league, he should forget all about the Champions League.

Lucas Moura has been Spurs' standout player this season, picking up a player of the month award for his opener in the 3-1 defeat of Fulham and brace in a 3-0 victory over Manchester United.

He said: "It was a massive wake-up call for us to show more respect to the competition and to realise that in come circumstances you can beat Manchester United, different teams and opponents".

Liverpool, who finished as runners-up in the Champions League last season, were forced to settle with a fourth placed finish in the league last season, which they secured during the final weekend of fixtures.

The £43.7million summer arrival has not featured in the matchday squad since being an unused substitute on the opening day of the campaign as he has been given time to adjust to Klopp's training methods.

"I noticed City pulled a couple of players out". It is a big misunderstanding that we will plan for the game tomorrow and [also] think about the game after and the game after.

"We have to think about the game tomorrow, then we see who we can choose for the next game".

"I know that's very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance [of winning the league] if they had free weeks."How would that work?"

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson believes that Liverpool FC will emerge victorious against Spurs on Saturday in the Premier League. After four weeks, when the fitness levels looked quite OK - it got better and better for one player or another - then we had to send them away [on global duty].

He said: "We've had a great start to the season and I'm sure the team will be fighting for it [the title], but it's too soon to start thinking about it".

"But, I'd probably say the goal against Juventus was the nicest one". But of course the game Saturday will be completely different.
