Gary Neville hits back at dig from Jürgen Klopp on Twitter

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

"I think Tottenham should have probably have signed more players in the summer".

'I don't know what he means with that, to be honest.

Neville this week said the Reds' best chance of ending a 29-year wait to be English champions would be enhanced if they "kicked into touch" their European ambitions.

"Actually I don't like to compare players but we had similar players and questions about Robbo (Andrew Robertson) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain", he said. How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

Spurs are looking to bounce back from a surprise defeat against Watford last time out whilst Liverpool are hoping to maintain their 100% start to the Premier League season. I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost. "Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job".

Eminem Says This Homophobic Diss Against Tyler, the Creator Went 'Too Far'
Eminem is, once again, addressing allegations of homophobia after he included anti-LGBTQ language on his latest album. On Friday, Eminem clapped back even harder with an entire diss track aimed at MGK called "KILLSHOT".

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said: "Quarter-finals of the Champions League, let City win". A lot of people watch our games in the Champions League and it's our job to do the best we can do in these games.

The majority of Klopp's players were on duty with their national teams this month, and now head into a heavily congested period of seven games in 23 days. It's not like Belgium play exactly like Tottenham.

"The problem legends sometimes have is they want to say something positive and put immediate pressure on us".

"Today we train, then we make a lineup for tomorrow".

"Maybe I repeat again but after Manchester United, all the signals from the team were that we were going to crash". We have to be as good as possible to reach the highest for us.

Former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has backed Liverpool to come out victorious this weekend.
