Friends of mine that support Manchester United often ask me what I would consider to be a successful season given the point that Klopp is at in his managerial tenure and the money that has been spent.

Liverpool legend John Barnes has said that Jurgen Klopp doesn't need to win silverware this season, despite the Reds ongoing trophy drought.

"Hopefully this is our year because I've waited long enough".

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

We can't quite say that about players like Salah just yet - but may well see the current stars similarly in time.

The Spurs boss described the Reds, who top the Premier League having won all four games before the global break, as one of Europe's best sides during his pre-match press conference.
