"The Champions League - if I was Liverpool, I would kick it into touch", Neville said.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes too much demand is placed on worldwide stars who have had barely any rest following the World Cup.

The talismanic goalscorer failed to find the net in the UEFA Nations League opener at Wembley, with former Manchester United defender Gary Neville voicing his opinion after the match that the Spurs hitman was in need of a "mental break". Other games include Watford v Man United, which is a must win for Mourinho as he could be sacked by United soon.

"We don't play Champions League or what?" said the German, whose side now top the table with a 100 per cent record after four matches and are widely seen as the main challengers to defending champions Manchester City.

The 31-year-old said: "Do I have a date of return?" I don't understand, do we play our kids or what?

"Aside from which, when you are a player of that quality, those are the games that you look forward to as much as any".

The Merseyside outfit earned huge amounts of praise for their fine form in Europe least season as they reached the Champions League final but ended up losing to Real Madrid.

The game will be another test of the Reds' title credentials but John Barnes doesn't believe the outcome of the game will be remembered at the end of the season for being massively important in the race to win the 2018/19 Premier League title.

"Over the last three seasons Alderweireld has been the most consistent centre-back but if it's right now and you're giving me a pair then that back five has to be all Liverpool". "It can be good but how good we don't know".

"I think you should go for all competitions", he said.

I expect both teams to score as they usually do in this fixture, but I'll have to edge towards Liverpool to win it.

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