Premier League fans are set to enjoy a 2019 Champions League Final rematch this weekend as Liverpool welcome Spurs to Anfield.
Back in June, the Reds managed to beat the Lilywhites 2-0 in Madrid to lift the Champions League trophy, with Tottenham struggling for form ever since.
Pochettino’s men have won just four games from 13 so far this season, but they do come into the match off the back of an impressive 5-0 win in the Champions League.
Spurs thrashed Red Star Belgrade at home, while Liverpool also won convincingly against Genk in Europe in mid-week.
Liverpool have yet to lose a Premier League match this season, winning every game bar the last match away to Manchester United which ended 1-1.
Klopp was clear to point out in his press conference after the win over Genk that his side had an extra day to prepare for the Spurs match compared to the Champions League tie. He believes that this will help his side.
Klopp said (Express): “It’s all good, I didn’t enjoy the game too much but I enjoy the result a lot.
“We had two away games now, with United and this one, they were both difficult for different reasons.
“I don’t know where we are now, that’s not too important, I know where we have to be on Sunday, that’s for sure.
“That’s a different story anyway.
“Absolutely [a big game], against a refreshed Tottenham. The second before they meet us they are back on track.
“Obviously they played a good game yesterday, but we are a different team to Red Star Belgrade, and Tottenham is different to Genk, that’s how it is.
“Luckily we have an extra day to prepare for Sunday than we had for this game, that will help because you have Sunday-Wednesday is semi-cool, but we played and got four points, that’s better than nothing.
“Now, let’s prepare for Tottenham.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
Tottenham also have an extra day over Liverpool to prepare for the match as they played on Tuesday. I’m not sure that will come into play too much. It is more about whether an out-of-form Spurs can kickstart a revival away to the best team in the league.
