Tottenham v Liverpool LIVE: Spurs seek their first league win over the Reds since 2017 as Klopp’s men try to avoid a third successive loss and restart the season

Jurgen Klopp: “It’s a huge game for us.

“I haven’t counted the points difference between us, but we can’t be picky where we get points, but it’s tough.

“They are well organized in defence. The counterattack is a huge thing. You have seen their offensive power.

“They’ve been scoring goals in the final minutes lately, so we’re ready for a confident and strong opponent.

“What can I say, I never thought before going to Tottenham ‘this is the right time to face Tottenham’. It will be tough, but that’s what we all want.

“It’s like a Champions League game in the Premier League and that’s how we’re going to approach it.”
