Harry Winks Starts - Tottenham Hotspur Team vs Liverpool Confirmed

Clinton Morrison believes that Liverpool are the standout contenders to challenge Manchester City for the Premier League title this season.

The Sky Sports pundit was of the opinion that Klopp's best chance of delivering Liverpool's first ever Premier League trophy would come if he didn't try to juggle every competition this term. Now we have been really good in the Champions League so we tasted success a bit. Four very efficient victories so far this season suggest that a bigger squad with greater depth in quality has given them better foundations that will be tested properly by Spurs today.

"The most hard [thing] is when you don't have a lot of players", said Klopp.

He said: "If Saturday we play in the same way - I don't say performance, because the performance was not bad against Watford - but if we do it the same way, rather than take off players, I will be on the phone to say, 'Houston, we have a problem!'"

The Merseyside club had an impressive season last campaign as well, finishing 4th in the domestic league and reaching the Champions League final against Real Madrid in May. "Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job".

"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.

Former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has backed Liverpool to come out victorious this weekend. I don't understand, do we play our kids or what?To focus on one competition can only be if you are out, or almost out, or if it's late in the season. I don't like the situation, because I don't like to say to Fabinho, who is full of energy and desire to play, to tell him he is not involved.

"I know that's very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance [of winning the league] if they had free weeks". That is not nice, but it is the job.

"Two seasons ago we had a fantastic record [in big-six matches] and previous year we didn't have such a good record, especially away from home".
