"We are disappointed because we're going to miss him for this game and possibly Inter Milan in the Champions League, but it is not a big issue".

What did he say about Manchester United in that case?

Liverpool are top of the Premier League on goal difference after four...

Hislop, who made his mark in England's top flight during his time with West Ham and Newcastle United, says that Liverpool would be committing an injustice to their high-profile signings if they decide to follow Neville's advice this year. They may have kept hold of their key players, including the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli but the arrival of a new name always boosts morale.

"How do you prepare for a game and not focus on it?"

I don't know what he means with that, to be honest.

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.

Spurs, too, came into the season with real expectations after a transfer window that saw them hold on to every one of the stars.

"Actually I don't like to compare players but we had similar players and questions about Robbo (Andrew Robertson) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain", he said.

Jurgen Klopp has ridiculed Gary Neville's suggestion that Liverpool should improve their Premier League title prospects by treating the Champions League lightly.

"We don't play Champions League or what?"

"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.

We don't play Champions League or what?"

"If it's late in the season that you see you have a chance to do that or do this and all that stuff".

Tottenham's preparation for a game against a Liverpool side boasting a 100 percent record so far has not been ideal.

"I hope he will be available for the weekend, maybe to play or be on the bench", said the Tottenham boss in his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

France's World Cup-winning captain Lloris is "expected to be out for several weeks" with a thigh injury according to the club, while manager Mauricio Pochettino is more hopeful Alli could return in time for the trip to Brighton on Sep 22.
