Jurgen Klopp bites back at Gary Neville over Champions League remarks

Jurgen Klopp bites back at Gary Neville over Champions League remarks

Former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has backed Liverpool to come out victorious this weekend. Last summer, Julian Brandt opted to remain at Bayer Leverkusen despite interest from Klopp, with Mohamed Salah arriving instead. On Saturday, the Liverpool boss will be without three first-team players, with Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana still working their way back to peak fitness, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will play no part this season due to a long-term knee injury.

Last season's Champions League runners-up open their campaign at home to Paris Saint Germain on Tuesday and, though Klopp admits he must rotate with seven games to play in 22 days, it will not be to dismiss the competition that Liverpool have won five times.

"They are two completely different players", Pochettino said.

In an interview with The Liverpool Way, Carragher said: "That is an issue for us, the worldwide thing. As a United fan, that's a worry because it is still that mentality of "anyone but them". Maybe we miss that. They are different in the way that they play and how they act on the pitch.

Jurgen Klopp has defended his decision to keep Fabinho out of his Liverpool team but admits it is "not nice" to tell him he will not be playing.

Upcoming Apple iPhones to Have Dual SIM and Dual 4G Functionality
Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details! This year may be the same, though we haven't heard much about the smaller model. Oh, and you may have noticed " iPhone Xs Max " mentioned up there; that's the rumoured name of the 6.5-inch model.

"Then today another one, and we need to be ready". "But it was more a wake-up for the players, that we can not do it like this". We have to play football.

I expect both teams to score as they usually do in this fixture, but I'll have to edge towards Liverpool to win it.

"Mauricio Pochettino has the same issue to get ready for the game tomorrow, that's how it is". It is a big misunderstanding that we will plan for the game tomorrow and [also] think about the game after and the game after.

Heung-Min Son is back following his Asian Games duty, but Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are out injured.

The pair join the likes of Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth in the stands, although there has been some good news on that front, as they are expected to return to training imminently and could be available for selection in the not too distant future.
