Premier League football will return with a bang after the global break this weekend, with Tottenham and Liverpool locking horns at Wembley in Saturday's lunch-time kick-off.

But, the big problem for the Liverpool boss this time around is the fact that his men have to play seven times in the space of 23 days. His league leaders could put a real marker down if they can bag three points against Spurs.

Ahead of Spurs' match against Liverpool on Saturday, he was asked if there would be two challengers taking to the field. "We have seen that we can do it", Klopp said.

"How do you prepare a game when you don't focus on it?" Sir Alex Ferguson's 2007/08 side remain the only team in Premier League history to win the a league and Champions League double.

"Of course we can do better but sometimes you have to have your confidence knocked".

"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".

Many of Mourinho's star players failed to turn up for that game as Brighton overpowered them in midfield to secure a famous victory.

"Mauricio Pochettino has the same issue to get ready for the game tomorrow, that's how it is".

Liverpool were beaten 4-1 by Spurs in this fixture last season, which ended up sparking an 18-game unbeaten run for the Reds.

"We had quite a good session yesterday, couldn't do too much because some of them came off the plane".

"It was a kind of a wake-up call, to be honest", Klopp said.

"It is going to demand a lot of energy from us - and to have a very good performance if we want to be close to winning".

"No one has to tell us what we have to do", he went on. "But it was more a wake-up for the players, that we can not do it like this". We know what we can do.

The France global goalkeeper, who is captain at White Hart Lane, has been in the news for the wrong reasons over the last week, but it is not that which keeps him out of the Liverpool clash, it is a thigh problem he picked up in the win over Manchester United, which caused him to miss the defeat to Watford prior to the break.
