Berbatov backs Liverpool to see of Spurs on Saturday

Berbatov backs Liverpool to see of Spurs on Saturday

"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.

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the worldwide break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

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.

In his pre Spurs match press conference the Reds manager replied, "How should that work?"

The pair join the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth in the stands, although there has been some good news on that front, as they are expected to return to training imminently and could be available for selection in the not too distant future. "We don't play Champions League or what?"

"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. "Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job".

Gary Neville has reiterated his view that in order to win the title this season, Liverpool should concentrate exclusively on the Premier League.

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

And there's no reason why the Reds can't go one better and win the competition for a sixth time.

'You could see the manager and players were full of energy when they came back from vacation - even those who were at the World Cup. "I hope I have them all fit, and I don't have to make a hard decision".

"No one has to tell us what we have to do", the 27-year-old added.

Lucas Moura has been Spurs' standout player this season, picking up a player of the month award for his opener in the 3-1 defeat of Fulham and brace in a 3-0 victory over Manchester United.

If Klopp can keep this team together for the next few years, then surely success will follow.
