Jurgen Klopp Takes Aim At Gary Neville's Comments About Liverpool

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Reds' return to domestic action against Tottenham tomorrow lunchtime, he first took a pop at punditry in general.

"Why? I think their method is exhausting for the front three [Salah, Mane and Firmino]".

The Premier League returns after the nearly two-week worldwide break as interesting matches will hold this weekend.

"I don't know what he means with that".

Jurgen Klopp: How can Liverpool ignore CL?

"It's absolutely no problem", he said.

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's global commitments over the past week. That is not nice, but it is the job. We don't play Champions League or what? We have a good team together so that takes time. "That's what we are working on".

The Reds boss confirmed that Simon Mignolet is fit to take his place in the matchday squad tomorrow after recovering from a minor hand injury that saw him return home early from global duty this week.

Juan Foyth has returned to training following a thigh issue but Moussa Sissoko (hamstring) won't be back in contention until next week.

Hugo Lloris on the other hand, is not injured, but was pulled over by police for driving while intoxicated about which the Argentinian coach stated: "He said he is sorry, anyone can make a mistake, he did it and he is suffering, he is punishing himself".

The forward, who last featured for his club on August 11, recently returned from the Asian Games, where he helped South Korea to victory in the tournament in Indonesia. I don't like the situation, because I don't like to say to Fabinho, who is full of energy and desire to play, to tell him he is not involved.

Klopp has Simon Mignolet available again after a finger injury, Lallana is out for the game and faces a battle to be ready for next weekend while Oxlade-Chamberlain continues his recovery from a ruptured cruciate ligament.

"That is how it is, the body needs the time only to calm down from an intense season - they didn't have it".

I spend so much time staring at Liverpool's fixture list in LFC Magazine that it must be considering taking a restraining order out on me, but I can't be the only one eyeing it up and down while imagining the heart-pumping, thrilling possibilities. They may have kept hold of their key players, including the likes of Harry Kane and Dele Alli but the arrival of a new name always boosts morale. "It will be a very tough opponent", said the Argentinian.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have been the worst team so far in the new season after losing all of their four opening matches.
