Gary Neville tells Liverpool FC to sacrifice the Champions League

  • Jurgen Klopp has a laugh with goalkeeping coaches John Achterberg and Mark Morris

"We have to play football".

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's worldwide commitments over the past week.

"He said he is sorry and accepts his mistake", said Mauricio Pochettino.

"We have to be 100 per cent in the competition wherever we play - whether it is the Champions League, Premier League, Carabao Cup, FA Cup".

Spurs' main goalkeeper and club captain Hugo Lloris told French publication RMC Sport he had only a small chance of being fit for the lunchtime clash, having suffered a minor thigh injury at the end of last month. That being said, the performances haven't been on the same level as some of the ones from past year, with the latest one against Leicester being particularly poor.

"You don't then turn around and say well, even though we told you we've got Champions League football to play we are just going to play the kids, you're not going to be involved in this". It will be interesting to see who Klopp picks in midfield, but there is a strong chance that Naby Keita will be back in the XI after he missed out last time, probably alongside James Milner and one other.

It will be Liverpool's 38th competitive fixture at Wembley - they have won 18 and lost 13 of those and are two goals short of recording 50 in those games.




That's because the Reds have been tipped as serious title contenders this campaign. How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

But they finished fourth in the Premier League, 25 points behind eventual champions City.

"Everyone knows I'm no Liverpool fan but I respect, understand and appreciate what's going on there", he said. The only man to do so thus far is Daniel Sturridge, who did so in the club's first four of the 2013-14 season.

"He actually agrees with me but you and I know he can't admit it". They've now got Alisson.

"Why? I think their method is exhausting for the front three [Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino]". But I feel with the confidence Liverpool have I fancy them to get a result against Tottenham.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Neville said: "The Champions League - if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch".
