Gary Neville tells Liverpool FC to sacrifice the Champions League

Newly-promoted side Fulham will be guests to defending champions Manchester City at the Etihad.

Liverpool are top of the Premier League on goal difference after four...

Klopp welcomed back the last of Liverpool's worldwide contingent when Alisson Becker, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino returned to training on Thursday.

Jurgen Klopp has laughed off suggestions Liverpool should abandon the Champions League to focus on winning an English title (Nick Potts/PA). 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.

The former right-back suggested that if the German wants to win the league, he should forget all about the Champions League.

"Everyone knows I'm no Liverpool fan but I respect, understand and appreciate what's going on there", he said.

"It is a big misunderstanding that we will plan for the game tomorrow and [also] think about the game after and the game after. I'm not even going to put Arsenal there", he added.

Not all games will support this feature, but it's a relief to see Nintendo add a feature that should have been ready at launch. The app allows players to voice chat with friends while playing certain games, with the example shown as Mario Tennis Aces .

One man that certainly disagrees with Neville is Klopp.

"How would that work?"

Asked if the World Cup victor would remain as captain, Pochettino said: "Of course". We played possession football, but not to the same extent as Klopp's Liverpool. "He is the first to tell me that he made a mistake, this is a lesson for everyone". How do you prepare a game and not focus on it?

The Argentinian said: "He needs to provide the team with his best, but maybe in the circumstances we are like a team, or when he plays with England it's maybe not the best conditions for a striker to give the best". That would be amusing. I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost.

"I think Liverpool haven't started the season excellently, but they have done a good job, and out of all the teams out there they've looked the best, and in [Virgil] van Dijk they've got one of the best defenders in the world at the moment".

However, Alderweireld remained at the club over the summer, despite reported interest from Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Paris St Germain, and he has reintegrated into Pochettino's squad, starting the last three games.
