Jurgen Klopp rejects advice to prioritise Premier League title

"I think they'll win this one but toppling Manchester City for the title will be so hard".

Former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has backed Liverpool to come out victorious this weekend. The club he's more interested in.

The likes of England captain Harry Kane, midfielder Dele Alli and victorious French skipper Hugo Lloris were thrown straight back into action by Mauricio Pochettino.

Kane has been a constant scourge of Liverpool, scoring five times in seven appearances against the Reds, including twice in a 4-1 thrashing at Wembley last season.

The 31-year-old missed Spurs' Premier League game at Watford on 2 September and both of France's matches during the global break.

"Football changed a lot in the last 30 years, shirts got tighter and the game got quicker, so you can't compare the teams, really".

But they finished fourth in the Premier League, 25 points behind eventual champions City. Fabinho is yet to start a game since joining Liverpool from Monaco in the summer and hasn't even been named in the matchday squad for the last three matches.

"I know the situation is not like people expected". Liverpool have won four matches without being anywhere near top gear this season, and they often play better against better opponents.

"We don't play Champions League or what?" said the German, whose side now top the table with a 100 per cent record after four matches and are widely seen as the main challengers to defending champions Manchester City. They wouldn't have conceded a single goal if it wasn't for an Alisson howler, and Virgil Van Dijk has been a rock at the centre of defence.

"He actually agrees with me but you and I know he can't admit it".

I think it'll be tough but if they were to go of the Champions League and they had free weeks after Christmas, Saturday-to-Saturday they could be a real threat this season to City.

"For me, there is no doubt that he is one of the best strikers in the world".

"With the two full-backs, I think Manchester City have the best two full-backs in the league and I think the next two best are Liverpool".
