Neville responds to Klopp blast: Liverpool can't play 3 games a week

The two sides meet in Saturday's early kick-off in what many people are tipping to be Liverpool's first serious test of the season.

Former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has backed Liverpool to come out victorious this weekend.

"We had quite a good session yesterday, couldn't do too much because some of them came off the plane".

"Mentality is to have the capacity to win or beat Manchester United at Old Trafford and then go to Watford and enjoy the same capacity".

The Egypt global was sensational under Jurgen Klopp last season as Liverpool reached the Champions League final. Maybe we miss that. But of course the game Saturday will be completely different.

Tottenham have received criticism in recent weeks, but Van Dijk's comments should at least lift their morale, and make the Spurs fans feel proud of their team. In fact, since he was appointed back in October 2015, Liverpool have the best top six head-to-head record and he has achieved the most points per game in these fixtures.

Redknapp, who played 240 times for the Reds and 48 games for Spurs, thinks that the home side will find it hard against Jurgen Klopp's boys.

The £43.7million summer arrival has not featured in the matchday squad since being an unused substitute on the opening day of the campaign as he has been given time to adjust to Klopp's training methods.

In an interview with The Liverpool Way, Carragher said: "That is an issue for us, the worldwide thing". After four weeks, when the fitness levels looked quite OK - it got better and better for one player or another - then we had to send them away [on worldwide duty].

He continued: "We have lots of really great players at the moment and it's exciting to watch our strikers - Salah, Mane, Firmino and now Keita all look very skilful and I love to see them play".

"Mauricio Pochettino has the same issue to get ready for the game tomorrow, that's how it is".

Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are both out for Spurs, but Son makes a return for them from the Asian games (where South Korea won Gold).

Meanwhile, Simon Mignolet is fit and available after recovering from a hand injury.
