Jurgen Klopp on his first week in charge and team selection for Saturday's game


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says he is satisfied after his first three training sessions at the club.

The German was last week appointed Liverpool's new manager on a three-year deal as he took over from Brendan Rodgers who was sacked after three and a half years in charge of the club.

His team faces an arduous task as they face Tottenham Hotspur away from home on Saturday but the 48-year-old is confident the Reds can take something positive away from White Hart Lane.

"We had three very good training sessions - the boys are really willing to listen, to understand what we want," Klopp told reporters.

"It's not a time to change many things, it's only [time] to turn the screws a little bit in the right way and that's what we tried to do. Most of the time [this week] I was in work with all the staff of LFC.

"It's not so interesting what they did last week, two weeks ago, for me it's more interesting what they are able to do on their best day.

"That's what I'm looking for and that's how I try to make the starting line-up for Tottenham.

"Everything will be better if we work together for six weeks but it's not a perfect world and so we have to [adapt to] the situation. I knew it was like this so it's no problem at this moment.

"We have to be ready to work, we have to be ready to enjoy the game. We play against a very, very good Premier League team, they've worked together for a long time.

"They look fine-tuned, they work well together. Maybe they have some problems, struggles with injuries or other things, but it's a good team.

"I think we know how they want to play, that's an important point to know, but it's more important to analyse our own situation. I think now if nothing happens in the next training sessions I know how we want to play. We have to use these two sessions today and tomorrow to understand a bit more.

"But at the end, it's only football!"
