Liverpool know Tottenham are vulnerable and will relish the chance to lay down their title credentials


THEY claim it is far too early for title talk.

That four successive Premier League wins, opening up the tiniest of gaps over defending champions Manchester City, does not count for much.

Jurgen Klopp will be relishing the chance to take on Tottenham who are enduring a difficult period

Even so, Tottenham away is a true test of Liverpool’s title-winning credentials.

Are they up for it? Do they fancy it? Can they go to a top Premier League rival straight after the international break and put them away?

These are the questions Jurgen Klopp must ask of his players before they walk out of those Wembley dressing rooms at lunchtime today.

He knows Tottenham are vulnerable.

The alarming defeat at Watford.

The drink-drive conviction for captain Hugo Lloris.

The endless questions about Harry Kane’s physical and mental well-being. Klopp’s Liverpool will fancy this. They have to.

They are out in front on goal difference, toppling West Ham, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester before the break.
