Gary Neville adamant Jurgen Klopp agrees with him despite Liverpool manager's retort

Premier League 2018-19 – Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool Preview

The Big Match: Yellow Sports Brian Jeeves will be at Wembley Stadium for Tottenham Hotspur's Premier League clash with Liverpool (Saturday 12:30pm)

The former Manchester United skipper's advice has been a big talking point, with Klopp himself dismissing the generous advice.

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate is sure to be an interested spectator, after claiming earlier this week that no creative player has emerged for the country since former Spurs star Paul Gascoigne, who retired from worldwide football in 1998.

"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works". When we talk about midfielders, because you like to use Spanish midfielders like Xavi and Iniesta, he's like this type of player, this capacity.

The modern centre-back at an elite, Champions League club needs to multi-task, capable of playing a high line with the pace and strength to regularly deal with one-on-one situations.

In contrast Spurs failed to land a single player in the summer as chairman Daniel Levy wrestled with their problems around their delayed new stadium. How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest". A lot of people watch our games when we play Champions League and that's our job that we do the best we can do in all these games.

"To focus on one competition can only be if you are out, or almost out, or if it's late in the season".

The outlet also reported a handful of basement fires within Andover, hearing on the police scanner that evacuations were underway. Some 400 people spent the night in shelters, and school was cancelled Friday as families waited to return to their homes.

The Brazil global has yet to start a Premier League game for Liverpool but Klopp pointed to previous signings as reason for patience with his new midfielder.

"We'll see where we end up at the end of the season, we're looking forward to it".

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said: 'Quarterfinals of the Champions League, let City win'".

On Saturday in the lunchtime kickoff Liverpool will take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.

"But on the other side we still knew we had a good team". Fabinho is full of desire and wants to be involved and I have to tell him "You're not involved this week" and that's not nice.

"We used the players who had the longest preseason, apart from Bobby [Roberto Firmino] who came pretty late".

Pochettino also backed Winks to become one of the best midfielders in England, if he can keep a good mentality and maintain his focus on training.
