Liverpool - Premier League - 15 September 2018

Liverpool-Henderson

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the global break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

Liverpool strengthened their hold on top of the Premier League as Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino fired them to a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

"How should that work?"

It is a regular complaint of Premier League managers that global breaks deny them any kind of preparation time with their players ahead of the game which immediately follows them.

Wijnaldum told The Telegraph: " I met [Mauricio] Pochettino when I left Newcastle.

But Neville doubled down on his original comment and believes the Reds are their best position for a number of years to end their Premier League hoodoo.

Jon Gruden finally speaks out on Khalil Mack trade
"We have to get ready to play", said Gruden, whose team opens the season as the late Monday night game against the Rams . He said, "I think he's scared to take shots - at least against us".

But when you consider that Spurs possess two of the most highly rated centre-backs in the Premier League in Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, it doesn't stack up that they have become so vulnerable when defending crosses and set-pieces. However, Spurs have also picked up 43 points during this time period although they have played one more game but this should mean that today's game is an absolute thriller.

"The problem legends sometimes have is they want to say something positive and put immediate pressure on us".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained why €50 million signing Fabinho is yet to make his debut, despite the player featuring for Brazil in the global break.

"He came from another league playing in a completely different system to us and that takes time".

Redknapp, who played 240 times for the Reds and 48 games for Spurs, thinks that the home side will find it hard against Jurgen Klopp's boys. And that would be a game changer for them. "I hope I have them all fit, and I don't have to make a hard decision".
