Gary Neville adamant Jurgen Klopp agrees with him despite Liverpool manager's retort

Gary Neville adamant Jurgen Klopp agrees with him despite Liverpool manager's retort

Merson has backed Liverpool to emerge victorious from the clash at Wembley, but has said that the Reds will find it "so difficult" to beat Manchester City to the Premier League title.

"Also Pep will be going for it. Man City will be going for the Premier League, trying to win it twice in a row, and they will be trying to win the Champions League". We played possession football, but not to the same extent as Klopp's Liverpool. It's not that I like to say Fabinho is full of energy and I tell him he's not involved.

"I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if you're already out of the competition almost, or if it's late in the season and you see you have a chance to do that or this".

Club great Graeme Souness recently claimed this team is the best he has seen since their last title-winning side of 1990, but Klopp is wary of such praise putting too much pressure on his players.

Last season's fixture between Spurs and Liverpool at Wembley saw Kane torment Dejan Lovren so badly to the point where the Croatian had to be substituted after just 31 minutes, and while it's hard to see the England captain doing the same to Virgil van Dijk or Joe Gomez, there can be no doubt that if it comes to a single chance, Kane would be the man that Spurs fans would want it to fall to.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hit back at Gary Neville by commenting that he does not know what the former Manchester United skipper meant when he suggested that the Reds should sacrifice their Champions League aspirations to win the league title.

"Last year I don't think even think Gary would have said "let City win in the CL".

The £43.7million summer arrival has not featured in the matchday squad since being an unused substitute on the opening day of the campaign as he has been given time to adjust to Klopp's training methods. We don't play CL or what?

"It's absolutely no problem". I don't like the situation. I don't understand, do we play with kids or what? "Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got".

"Sometimes it takes more time, sometimes a bit less but from my point of view it is all fine but I know the situation is not like a few people would have expected".
