"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. I don't understands, do we play with kids or what? What did he say about Manchester United?

Tottenham Hotspur have been rocked by the news that both Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli will miss Saturday lunchtime's crunch clash with Premier League leaders Liverpool, who are bidding for a fifth win on the bounce when they take on a depleted Spurs side at Wembley. How do you prepare for a game and not focus on it?

"It is a big misunderstanding that we will plan for the game tomorrow and [also] think about the game after and the game after".

Alli withdrew from the England squad for Tuesday's friendly against Switzerland after suffering a strain during the 2-1 loss to Spain on Saturday.

He is punishing himself.

Lloris, who has endured a hard few weeks on a personal level after being fined £50,000 and receiving a 20-month driving ban following his pleading guilty to drink-driving, misses this weekend's game with a hamstring injury, while Alli suffered a knock during England's 2-1 defeat to Spain last weekend and misses out.

I think they will come second to Man City.


Juan Foyth has returned to training following a thigh issue but Moussa Sissoko (hamstring) won't be back in contention until next week.

Mauricio Pochettino also has a decision to make on Heung-Min Son. "He can not get a rest match-wise but he will find his form and maybe at the weekend".

The Argentinian said: "He needs to provide the team with his best, but maybe in the circumstances we are like a team, or when he plays with England it's maybe not the best conditions for a striker to give the best".

Former Manchester United star Neville had said: "The Champions League - if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch".

"I fancy Liverpool based on the counter-attack game".

"I could have changed five or six players that day", he added on Lovren's 20th minute substitution.

"It is going to demand a lot of energy from us - and to have a very good performance if we want to be close to winning".
