Jurgen Klopp is anticipating a tough encounter when Liverpool host ‘world-class’ Tottenham on Sunday.
Klopp’s league leaders face third-placed Spurs in a huge clash at Anfield this weekend, in a game which could have a significant say in this season’s title race.
Spurs had been in indifferent form prior to the international break, going without a win in four to fall out of title contention, but Klopp is anticipating a tough test against what he describes as a ‘world-class team’.
“After Tottenham played their last game three weeks ago, I don’t think anybody feels any defeat from three weeks ago,” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.
“We expect the strongest Tottenham you can expect because I heard nothing about any injury problems or whatever. They had a few over the season but not in the moment, so there will be a strong side here. A world-class team will be here.
“Even without preparing the game – what we did now in the last week, of course – we saw the Champions League games, we saw Tottenham playing, so it’s a very good football team – unfortunately very good!”
