Jurgen Klopp laughs off Gary Neville's comments about Liverpool

  • Gary Neville Makes Huge Claim on Liverpool's Champions League Ambitions This Season

Mauricio Pochettino's men will be among the teams rivalling the Reds for a place in the top four at the end of the season.

Neville, who won just ten of his 28 games at Valencia in 2015/16 before being sacked, pointed to Liverpool's front three as lacking cover and said that they should forget the Champions League altogether during an interview with The Times.

Liverpool, who finished as runners-up in the Champions League last season, were forced to settle with a fourth placed finish in the league last season, which they secured during the final weekend of fixtures.

Pep Guardiola's side are odds-on favourites to win their second consecutive league title but Liverpool are considered their biggest challengers this season.

Merson has backed Liverpool to emerge victorious from the clash at Wembley, but has said that the Reds will find it "so difficult" to beat Manchester City to the Premier League title.

"Gary should come over and tell me how that exactly works", Klopp told a press conference.

The 22-year-old midfielder could also be ruled out of next Tuesday evening's (Wednesday morning AEST) UEFA Champions League opener away to Inter Milan. That would be amusing.

Why a weaker, Category 2 hurricane is still unsafe
Little change in strength is expected before the center reaches the coast, with weakening expected after the center moves inland. Duke Energy Corp. expected between 25 percent and 75 percent of its 4 million customers would lose power in the Carolinas.

"We will see, I don't know what it means, to focus on one competition can only be if you're almost out of a competition, late in the season".

"(We are) disappointed because we are going to miss him for maybe this game and against Inter Milan in Champions League", said Pochettino.

"Last year I don't even think Gary would have said 'let City win the Champions League".

"We ask too much from the players, we constantly want them ready and if they are not we are not happy".

"We will see, I don't know what it means, to focus on one competition, can only be if you're almost out of a competition, late in the season".

"Whether Spurs can stop a rampaging Liverpool forward line looks unlikely, however, and five wins on the bounce for Jurgen Klopp's side beckons".

'I know that's very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance [of winning the league] if they had free weeks'.
