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

14 September 2018

"I am disappointed because we are going to miss him for this game and maybe the Champions League game against Inter Milan [on September 18]".

The Reds have had a sublime start to the season under Klopp and have already established themselves as leaders in the Premier League after winning all their games so far.

'I don't know what he means with that, to be honest.

"How do you prepare a game when you don't focus on it?" You're gonna have to bring in a centre forward, and you say to him "you're gonna be a sub because I've got one of the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane".

Given the manner of the defeat at Wembley last season, Liverpool will be desperate to beat Spurs when they travel to London tomorrow.

"We have players that worked together now for much longer; he comes from another league, a completely different system which Monaco played, to us. He told me "boss it's a massive lesson for me, I made a mistake and need to pay" and now he's accepted (it) like a man that he is". A lot watch our games from the Champions League, it's our job, to do the best we can do. To focus on one competition can only be if you are out, or almost out, or of if it's late in the season.

The England captain has scored twice for club and country since the start of the season and has yet to hit the heights seen in recent years.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Neville said: "The Champions League - if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch. Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job".

Liverpool FC are still aiming to win their first trophy since Jurgen Klopp's appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.

"I think Tottenham should have probably have signed more players in the summer".

"A good pre-season should be at least three or four weeks", he said. But now they can cope with that as there are not too many players who are going to run away from those two. "We will see exactly how we can do it", said the Reds manager when asked about possible rotation at his pre-match press conference. What did he say about Manchester United in that case?

"But on the other side we still knew we had a good team".
