The England global has not been in great form so far this season, and the striker will have to play an influential role against Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday.

The matchup pits the league's two superstar goalscorers against one another, with Liverpool's Mohamed Salah matching wits with Tottenham's Harry Kane. And, Klopp admitted in his pre-match press conference that he will have to bank on his entire squad over the next month, in what should be a taxing period for the Reds.

Tottenham Hotspur face a tough task returning to winning ways when they host Premier League leaders Liverpool on Saturday. That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

Earlier this week, Neville suggested that Liverpool ought to kick the Champions League into touch this year because of the toll it can take on players when playing twice a week.

Can Liverpool prove Klopp right by competing for both the Premier League and Champions League? I don't understand, we play our kids or what?

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said: 'Quarterfinals of the Champions League, let City win'".

"It feels like we have 500 games in the next seven weeks".

"I noticed City pulled a couple of players out". Yes, we learned, the experience was that one game can be completely different to another.

Tottenham won this fixture 4-1 last season in a comfortable victory over Jurgen Klopp's men, but they would need an incredible performance to repeat that feat. "Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got". It is a big misunderstanding that we will plan for the game tomorrow and [also] think about the game after and the game after.

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

Former Tottenham and Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov has backed Liverpool to come out victorious this weekend.
