Spurs trail Premier League leaders Liverpool by three points but could move top for a few hours at least with victory at Wembley.

It's been the flawless start to the season for Liverpool as Juergen Klopp's side have 12 points from 12 and have conceded just one goal.

Tottenham manager, Mauricio Pochettino spoke at a press conference and with Sky Sports specifically about the upcoming matches against Liverpool and the Champions League fixture against Inter.

The 31-year-old missed Spurs' Premier League game at Watford on 2 September and both of France's matches during the worldwide break.

"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.

"If you want to win Premier League titles then you have to win these games, so Liverpool will be judged on this too".

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

Aaron Rodgers: Danica Patrick gloats about 'GOAT' performance from Packers QB
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers insists that he will be available to play against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. An offensive-minded coach, Nagy had the aggressive Bears' offense pushing the Packers around the field in the first half.

Neville this week said the Reds' best chance of ending a 29-year wait to be English champions would be enhanced if they "kicked into touch" their European ambitions.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have started the season 4-0-0, tops in the Premier League so far. It will be interesting to see who Klopp picks in midfield, but there is a strong chance that Naby Keita will be back in the XI after he missed out last time, probably alongside James Milner and one other.

"I think you should go for all competitions", he said.

It will mark the start of an extremely busy period for Klopp's side, with seven matches in 23 days on the horizon, and Klopp admits squad rotation will be required in the coming weeks, although Adam Lallana (groin) and Dejan Lovren (pelvis) remain sidelined. When a striker does not fill the net and does not score goals, always you need to find some reason why but I think he is fit. The Brazil worldwide has yet to start a Premier League game for Liverpool but Klopp pointed to previous signings as reason for patience with his new midfielder.

"The drop in quality below them, if there are injuries or playing Wednesday, Saturday, I think it will take its toll".

He's a man. But I think the most important thing is everyone can make a mistake.
