"We are disappointed because we're going to miss him for this game and possibly Inter Milan in the Champions League, but it is not a big issue".

'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'. The challenge for them is can they repeat that level of energy and that level of focus every three days?

Neville, who was an integral part of Sir Alex Ferguson's unparalleled success story at Old Trafford, commented that the Reds need to loosen their focus on continental football if they are to win the league title this year. Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works.

"How do you prepare for a game and not focus on it?"

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!

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest". We have to play football.

Tottenham Hotspur suffered a double injury blow ahead of a key week with goalkeeper Hugo Lloris and midfielder Dele Alli ruled out for Saturday's (Sep 15) Premier League clash with Liverpool and a Champions League trip to Inter Milan on Tuesday.

Breanna Stewart is an Olympic gold medalist and a four-time NCAA champion with CT , and she's now a WNBA champion as well. She wanted to win a title for them so they could experience what she felt in 2004 and 2010 following championship runs.

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

Jurgen Klopp has hit back at Gary Neville's suggestion that Liverpool should consider forfeiting the Champions League this season. 'It doesn't work like this.

Pochettino's side claimed a 4-1 win over Liverpool in the corresponding fixture of last season but he is anticipating a much tougher task this time around.

Liverpool are set to face into a run of fixtures that may test Neville's theory. They were the most stable players in the squad.

Pochettino insists he is not anxious by Harry Kane's performances so far this season as they prepare to face Liverpool tomorrow at Wembley.

I think that's what let Liverpool down in the past - they had to play well to win, whereas now they look a lot more solid defensively and can still attack and score goals. He's a man. But I think the most important thing is everyone can make a mistake.
