Dimitar Berbatov and Michael Owen predict Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool

Liverpool are expected to be genuine title challengers to Manchester City this season and people said the same about Tottenham after a landmark win at Manchester United.

Liverpool are without a league title since 1990 and a domestic trophy since 2012, and Neville said that their pursuit of breaking this duck could be burdened by European commitments. Now we have been really good in the Champions League so we tasted success a bit.

Ahead of Spurs' match against Liverpool on Saturday, he was asked if there would be two challengers taking to the field. That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

"The football they are playing under Jürgen Klopp, it's fantastic". You put your kids in the Champions League? 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.

"If you watch the Watford game again, you see we played so slow, so sloppy, from the beginning". Past year I don't think even Gary Neville would have said 'let City win in the Champions League.' Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job.

The best news for the Reds is the number of players they have who are between 24 and 27, and theoretically coming into their prime.

Pogba handed warning by Gary Neville amid transfer speculation
Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville insists that the Red Devils "would be fine" if Paul Pogba left. Neville the pundit would say: he's a talented player but I want to see more consistency and leadership.

"I don't know what he means, to be honest".

"Life as a Premier League manager is never ideal, it's not that I have all of them together, then we train and can compare a game".

Lucas Moura has been Spurs' standout player this season, picking up a player of the month award for his opener in the 3-1 defeat of Fulham and brace in a 3-0 victory over Manchester United.

"It's absolutely no problem". I don't like the situation, because I don't like to say to Fabinho, who is full of energy and desire to play, to tell him he is not involved. That's not nice, it's only the job to do sometimes.

"Two seasons ago we had a fantastic record [in big-six matches] and past year we didn't have such a good record, especially away from home".
