Tottenham and Liverpool have had contrasting results since the two teams last met, in the Champions League final back in June, but Klopp didn’t want to create headlines by discussing Spurs’ form recently.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain‘s two goals in midweek meant he was the subject of questions from the press, with Klopp outlining his “high expectations” of the midfielder, saying: “I’m impressed with the goals but there is more to come. He knows that.”
The boss also discussed the importance of Fabinho as the Reds’ No.6 in midfield, saying: “The job of the No. 6 in modern football is incredibly important. The more offensive all the players around you are, the more important it gets.”
Klopp was also asked about the small changes in the atmosphere around the club since he arrived, saying that the details around things such as knowing each staff member’s name should be simple.
“Making the place you work at the best place possible is an important part of success,” he assessed.
