Jurgen Klopp laughs off Gary Neville’s comments about Liverpool

Building from this point will not be easy, though, particularly when European commitments are added to a hectic schedule.

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the worldwide break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

"My view is if they were to go on a long Champions League, League Cup or FA Cup run, that would put that Premier League title at risk because I'm not sure that front three would be able to play Wednesday, Saturday, Wednesday, Saturday, week in, week out".

Pochettino's side effectively ended talk of a Wembley hoodoo when they beat Jurgen Klopp's team 4-1 last October and the Argentinian is not expecting a repeat of the limp performance at Vicarage Road.

Klopp is stunned to learn that such an experienced figure would make such a claim, with that approach making little sense to him.

Jurgen Klopp does not have too many fitness issues apart from the confirmed absences of Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren. What do we do?

"Also Pep will be going for it. Man City will be going for the Premier League, trying to win it twice in a row, and they will be trying to win the Champions League". I don't like the situation, because I don't like to say to Fabinho, who is full of energy and desire to play, to tell him he is not involved. Sir Alex Ferguson's 2007/08 side remain the only team in Premier League history to win the a league and Champions League double. That would be amusing! We lost [Philippe] Coutinho [to Barcelona], but signed three or four top players. We have a good team together so that takes time.

"That's what we try".

"I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if you're already out of the competition almost, or if it's late in the season and you see you have a chance to do that or this".

"The most hard [thing] is when you don't have a lot of players", said Klopp.

"It doesn't work like this".
