The Pressure Gauge: Liverpool out to prove title credentials at Spurs

Jurgen Klopp Trophies

"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".

However, Alderweireld remained at the club over the summer, despite reported interest from Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Paris St Germain, and he has reintegrated into Pochettino's squad, starting the last three games.

The Crystal Palace legend said there was room to improve for Liverpool but they now had a strong defence to back up their already impressive forward line.

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

We have to do that, we have to rotate - [but] I don't know if we'd call it "rotation".

"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". "The drop in quality below them, if there are injuries or playing Wednesday, Saturday, I think it will take its toll", he said.

Liverpool are still looking to win their first ever Premier League trophy and this year may represent their best chance to date.

"We have players that worked together now for much longer; he comes from another league, a completely different system which Monaco played, to us". 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.

In fairness, hard to beat as the best teams I played in were, it is tougher being a Liverpool defender now than under Benitez and Gerard Houllier.

Earlier in the week Gary Neville had suggested that Liverpool should sacrifice their Champions League ambitions in order to focus on their Premier League campaign, but Morrison disagreed.

"Now with the Nations League, global managers can not rest players because it is a proper competition".

But while Salah has scored twice in four games so far for Jurgen Klopp's high-flying Liverpool, he has not been the effervescent figure that tormented opponents last term.

"I hope he will be available for the weekend, maybe to play or be on the bench", said the Tottenham boss in his pre-match press conference on Thursday.
