Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are missing for Tottenham against Liverpool

Wijnaldum scored the opener at Wembley as Liverpool looked to continue their 100% start to the Premier League season with his header crossing the line before it was saved by Michel Vorm. What did he say about Manchester United in that case?

After two weeks of an worldwide break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum.

The Reds have, meanwhile, won all four of their league games this season, against West Ham, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester, conceding just once against the Foxes. After losing to Watford before the global break, Mauricio Pochettino will want his players to bounce back.

Both sides kick off their Champions League campaigns before resuming in the Premier League. Yes, we learned, the experience was that one game can be completely different to another.

"Maybe [if he learns this] he will arrive to play in a very good level and be one of the best midfielders in England".


'Tottenham have shown over the years the quality of their players and manager. When Adam is back, we have the squad together, and that will be the first time.

"The onus is also on Tottenham after their result against Watford so I think Liverpool will be comfortable in giving Spurs the ball, but when they win it back they'll get at them". The two up front, plus Bobby, and then all the others had a normal break pretty much.

"If you watch the Watford game again, you see we played so slow, so sloppy, from the beginning". After four weeks, when the fitness levels looked quite OK - it got better and better for one player or another - then we had to send them away [on worldwide duty]. "Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got". The plan was - and still is - that he will make us better.

But now with Dele Alli, Hugo Lloris and possibly Son missing, Pochettino could soon learn to regret that decision.
