Jurgen Klopp on the Tottenham Hotspur game and the return from the international break


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says his players are ready to fight for a Top Four finish and the Europa League.

The Reds resume their Premier League campaign with a tough home game against Tottenham Hotspur with a number of key players to be assessed after returning from international duty.

"Two tournaments is not a problem, I think it's not a problem," Klopp said.

"A lot of my players had three games this week, with Saturday, Tuesday and Saturday again [on international duty]. It's always difficult with the national break, you don't know how [the players] come back [and] you don't know what they exactly did.

"Of course, we see all the things that the national teams send us, but it's different when you're not part of it or you only hear about it.

"We have to use this time yesterday and today to be well prepared for this game. Then we have another four days until the next game, so it is nothing to think about.

"Both games are very important but the only game that we can have a little bit of influence on now is the Tottenham game. We can prepare after this. It's absolutely OK and we never had a problem with the balance between the tournaments.

"A few things are better [when compared with two weeks ago], a few things are worse since then and a few things didn't change. But it's a game of football at Anfield so, if we are good, that's really enjoyable and we should try."
