"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".

"When a striker does not fill the net and does not score goals, always you need to find some reason why but I think he is fit", Pochettino said.

Pep Guardiola's side are odds-on favourites to win their second consecutive league title but Liverpool are considered their biggest challengers this season.

"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work".

"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".

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino spoke at a press conference and with Sky Sports specifically about the upcoming matches against Liverpool and the Champions League fixture against Inter. That would be amusing!

"It is clear, with numbers [from] games and all that stuff - we get so much information after a game, which you [the media] don't have - you see how players react in different situations".

Tottenham Hotspur have been rocked by the news that both Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli will miss Saturday lunchtime's crunch clash with Premier League leaders Liverpool, who are bidding for a fifth win on the bounce when they take on a depleted Spurs side at Wembley.

"That's what we try". 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. 'It doesn't work like this. "Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job".

Spurs midfielder Dele Alli will also miss Saturday's game against Liverpool after injuring a hamstring.

"It feels like we have 500 games in the next seven weeks, so I hope I can make decisions". I would never judge a player on 20 minutes of his life, ' Klopp explained.

After a summer spending spree which saw Liverpool bring in several fresh faces, the general consensus is that the reds can mount a genuine title challenge under Jurgen Klopp this season.
