Tottenham suffer Alli’s blow for visit of Liverpool

Despite their European run last in 2017/18, Neville believes that the Reds are going to have to put the Champions League to one side, if they are going to win their first league title for over 25 years.

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.

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

"I think it will be an open game". The challenge for them is can they repeat that level of energy and that level of focus every three days?

'Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works.

"Aside from which, when you are a player of that quality, those are the games that you look forward to as much as any".

"Playing Champions League football is why you can attract the likes of Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah and all the other players you want to name, Allison in between the sticks". That would be amusing!

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

The Argentinian said: "He needs to provide the team with his best, but maybe in the circumstances we are like a team, or when he plays with England it's maybe not the best conditions for a striker to give the best".

This weekend, Liverpool will be asked to prove their title credentials in their first Big Six clash of the Premier League season.

'That's what we try. 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.

For both sides however, any silverware will be seen as a success this season, with Liverpool last winning a trophy in 2012 - the League Cup. 'It doesn't work like this.

The 25-year-old has just scored two goals in six games for club and country this season, with the statistics behind those numbers making for even more unsettling reading.

As he prepares to face Tottenham, PSG, Southampton, Chelsea (twice), Napoli and Manchester City in the space of three weeks, Klopp suggested that Neville doesn't understand what it's like to manage a team from the safety of his "office".

Spurs midfielder Dele Alli will also miss Saturday's game against Liverpool after injuring a hamstring. "Then we're all men and women and we can all make mistakes".
