Liverpool boss Klopp hails Lovren fight back after Spurs horror show

Moura has not started a game for PSG this season making only six substitute appearances

Moura has not started a game for PSG this season making only six substitute appearances

The escalating fight for Champions League places becomes the dominant focal point in the Premier League this end of the week as Liverpool have Tottenham, while Manchester United and Chelsea look to recuperate from harming massacres. "Now the question is: is doing "okay" good enough for Liverpool?". It is the salaries you need to see!

"I try to find something to do like watch a film or read a book but you can not stop". I think Anderlecht is a fantastic solution, the same Bolton is for Flanno. In his tenure there have been two cup finals lost, a semi-final lost against Southampton over two legs, and Liverpool is about winning.

This match brings together two evenly matched sides bent on attacking. That was a decision of all of us, we think they are ready. If not, and Eriksen creates himself a foothold from which to dictate the game, Spurs may well leapfrog them into third.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has said that Adam Lallana is unlikely to feature against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

"I would say", answered the German.

"So with the young lads we gave on loan to different clubs, especially the young boys, it's especially because we really think that they are ready for the next challenge".

It's obvious the best 11 individuals in the world wouldn't necessarily form a great team - they'd nearly certainly be top-heavy and lack ball-winning quality - but football has become so tactically complex it's arguable the best four attackers in the world wouldn't necessarily form a great attack either.

"We had to, because we've got tough games coming up".

Since Klopp's arrival, Tottenham have struggled to find a way to beat Liverpool, drawing three games on the bounce before losing 2-0 late last season with Liverpool's highly aggressive style of play preventing them from deploying their usual game plan.

"That has been the common theme and that hasn't changed with Klopp - it was part of the reason he came in".

"They had a couple with [Klopp] when he first joined two years ago which they lost".

Kyle Walker's move to Manchester City last summer remains the only major departure, and Klopp admits he is envious of Spurs' ability to retain their top assets. "Maybe we will rotate or maybe we will not, but we need to see what is going on now".

A dominant 2-0 win over Manchester United in midweek got Spurs back in the hunt for the top four and was reminiscent of the displays that swept Liverpool and Madrid aside at Wembley earlier in the campaign.
