Match updates as LFC return to Premier League action

Georginio Wijnaldum believes Liverpool must be realistic over their title ambitions given the gulf between themselves and champions Manchester City last season.

The Reds have won four from four so far this season, but have yet to come up against a team that has seriously challenged them.

We've taken a look at the age make-up of Jurgen Klopp's side, and there are some interesting findings.

Liverpool face Tottenham on Saturday looking to keep up their 100 per cent record in this season's Premier League. "I hope I have them all fit, and I don't have to make a hard decision". "As a United fan, that's a worry because it is still that mentality of "anyone but them".

The final bit is the real stinger with of course Neville having enough knowledge to comment but his past with Valencia coming back to bite him via the words of Klopp.

Both the teams will get back to the UEFA Champions League duty following this important fixture.

Ahead of Spurs' match against Liverpool on Saturday, he was asked if there would be two challengers taking to the field.


"Why? I think their method is exhausting for the front three". They're a very good team, but we are as well. However, Bayer Leverkusen's Julian Brandt could have been the one to come in instead if Klopp had his way, per Walsh.

"How would that work?"

In his pre Spurs match press conference the Reds manager replied, "How should that work?"

Tottenham play Liverpool in the Premier League 2018/19. How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

"I think Tottenham should have probably have signed more players in the summer". That would be amusing.

"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". A year ago I don't think even Gary Neville would have said 'let City win in the Champions League.' Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job.

Liverpool also remain in talks with former Manchester United coach Jack Robinson about becoming an assistant goalkeeping coach at the club, sources have told ESPN FC.
