Jurgen Klopp rejects advice to prioritise Premier League title

Gary Neville Makes Huge Claim on Liverpool's Champions League Ambitions This Season

Liverpool weren't close to challenging Manchester City for the Premier League in 2017/18, but they were able to reach the Champions League final before being defeated by Real Madrid in Kiev.

However, Alderweireld remained at the club over the summer, despite reported interest from Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Paris St Germain, and he has reintegrated into Pochettino's squad, starting the last three games.

Since the start of the 2014-15 season, only Arsenal (37) have won fewer more points in Premier League matches between the "big six" sides than Spurs (54).

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Neville said: "The Champions League - if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch". 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. That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

I don't know what he means with that, to be honest. Past year I don't think even Gary Neville would have said 'let City win in the Champions League.' Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job.

"Gary should tell me how that works".

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

Glenn Kaplan: Steelers and Browns Tie
However, the weirdest, wackiest game of the day came in the rainy-Cleveland conditions, where the Steelers tied the Browns 21-21. He forced two fumbles, recorded two sacks and rushed Roethlisberger into making some indecisive throws.

Jurgen Klopp has laughed off suggestions Liverpool should abandon the Champions League to focus on winning an English title (Nick Potts/PA). To focus on one competition can only be if you are out, or almost out, or of if it's late in the season. He's a man. But I think the most important thing is everyone can make a mistake.

"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.

"What I would say is Liverpool have solved the problems they had against Spurs past year, particularly at Wembley when Kane scored and Lovren made a couple of mistakes".

"I could have changed five or six players that day", he added on Lovren's 20th minute substitution.

Pochettino said: "Look, when in England the transfer window closed and in Europe closed I think we move on".

I expect both teams to score as they usually do in this fixture, but I'll have to edge towards Liverpool to win it.
