Jurgen Klopp has been speaking about Tottenham ahead of Liverpool’s match against Manchester United this evening and had nothing but nice things to say about the Lilywhites.

As the English football media gears up for one of the biggest derbies in English football, the Liverpool manager has weighed in on Spurs’ recent form.

In his press conference this week, Klopp claimed (Liverpool): “To be fourth means you are a quality side. With all the opponents you have, it’s mad how consistent you have to be to get close to that area.”

He continued: “Tottenham are flying, they had a little drop, but the quality they have is incredible.”

Klopp’s Liverpool have been incredibly consistent themselves this season, dropping points just twice in 2022 so far (Premier League).

Klopp was referring to, of course, the 1-0 defeat at home to Brighton at the weekend and Spurs fans will be hoping that the Liverpool man’s original assessment continues at Brentford next week, keeping the recent loss as nothing more than a ‘little drop’.

Receiving this kind of praise from a recent Premier League and Champions League-winning manager shows how far Spurs have come under Antonio Conte.

However, Spurs will need to match Liverpool’s level of consistency next season if they are able to challenge for silverware, something that has yet to be done even under the Italian.
