Mauricio Pochettino: Tottenham players' attitude must improve | Sport

"Gary should come over and tell me how that exactly works", Klopp told a press conference. We won the game and if we win at Tottenham it's a big result.

Which team are you supporting in the 2018 World Cup? Always when you lose, the players that are not on the pitch are the best, and that is the most unfair situation you can translate. "We will see if we can do so". "But, I imagine only five per cent less and we probably would have lost".

Ex-Liverpool star John Arne Riise has also taken to Twitter to give his reaction to the performance of Jurgen Klopp's side.

"It's absolutely no problem". That's not nice, it's only the job to do sometimes. I think we should be talking in a different way now.

Simon Mignolet is available after sustaining a hand injury but Adam Lallana is not yet ready for selection following the groin strain he suffered in England training last week and neither is Dejan Lovren.

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino felt his team merited a stoppage-time penalty in the 2-1 loss to Liverpool.




Spurs, meanwhile, were missing the injured Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli on Saturday - both players would nearly certainly have started if fit - with the other starters from last season's game, Davinson Sanchez, Heung-min Son and Serge Aurier named on the bench.

The Tottenham goalkeeper tried to keep his effort out but goal line technology ruled that the ball had crossed the line.

Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho have since left Liverpool, too - Coutinho's sale raised in the region of £142m - while Jordan Henderson started this game on the bench, with Klopp selecting £52.75m summer purchase Naby Keita ahead of his captain. "We have some issues, like Dele Alli, and it's not the moment to take a risk". So far this was our best performance, so I like that development.

Liverpool have got off to a great start, winning every game and playing good football. "It will be a very tough opponent", said the Argentinian. His inclusion in Klopp's matchday squad this week is good news as it potentially shows that he is close to starting for his new side.

Firmino doubled Liverpool's lead in the second-half after Gini Wijnaldum had handed the Merseyside outfit a first half lead.
