Football Player Roberto Firmino May Skip the Champions League Clash

The Red Devils legend suggested that, in his eyes, as Liverpool have an excellent chance this year of winning the Premier League they should kick their Champions League campaign "into touch".

"I noticed Graeme Souness said afterwards he thought it was my old club's best team since Kenny Dalglish last won the league".

Tottenham gave the ball away 112 times, which tells a story - some of that was down to really sloppy play by us, some of it was down to your closing and tenacity, highlighted by James Milner.

Lots of arm-waving, little noise - it's one of the biggest problems we have with Wembley, and when the crowd is only around 65,000 mark, it's soulless. I am long enough now in this business to know nobody will play the ideal season.

Pochettino's side effectively ended talk of a Wembley hoodoo when they beat Jurgen Klopp's team 4-1 last October and the Argentinian is not expecting a repeat of the limp performance at Vicarage Road. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again.

"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".

But regardless of the mitigating factors, Spurs were second best from start to finish, with defensive mistakes costing Mauricio Pochettino's team for both goals.

Since the three players were put in unison following Salah's arrival from Roma at the start of last season, they have scored 99 goals in their 165 appearances. How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it?

The Reds captain was on global duty with England during the worldwide break and played a part in both the Nations League defeat by Spain and the 1-0 friendly victory over Switzerland at the King Power Stadium. We've got no excuses this time.
