The Liverpool boss added: "How should that work?" Klopp asked the reporter during his press conference. We will see exactly how we can do it.
"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". How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?
"You always try to have your best game, but it is clear with the number of games. They have very good players, a great manager and of course will be a very tough opponent". It is understandable people see this at Liverpool and have their opinion. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson should be the full-backs.
Adam Lallana (groin) won't feature for Liverpool but Simon Mignolet is fit after a hand injury. But, the Belgian is likely to remain as the deputy to Alisson, who should start despite his blunder last time around against Leicester City.
Naby Keita comes in with captain Jordan Henderson on the bench. While Liverpool spent big to plug obvious gaps in the squad, Tottenham decided everything was working well and didn't drop a penny.
One man that certainly disagrees with Neville is Klopp.
"It's absolutely no problem". Fabinho is full of desire and wants to be involved and I have to tell him "You're not involved this week" and that's not nice. 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, 'Quarter-finals of the Champions League, let City win.' It doesn't work like this.
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.
