Georginio Wijnaldum reveals why he rejected Spurs in favour of Liverpool move

Fabinho moved to the Reds from Ligue 1 outfit Monaco at the start of July, but has failed to make the matchday squad for the last three Premier League games.

Liverpool FC earned lots of praise for their solid form last season as they reached the Champions League final, but they ended up losing to Real Madrid in the showpiece.

Liverpool are top of the table on goal difference going into Saturday's clash with Spurs at Wembley, having won each of their four games so far.

In his pre Spurs match press conference the Reds manager replied, "How should that work?"

Pochettino's side effectively ended talk of a Wembley hoodoo when they beat Jurgen Klopp's team 4-1 last October and the Argentinian is not expecting a repeat of the limp performance at Vicarage Road.

'But all I can tell you as a player is I am happy when a player like Virgil [van Dijk] signs and walks into the dressing room because then you think, "yeah, we can really achieve something with this team". How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it? You're gonna have to bring in a centre forward, and you say to him "you're gonna be a sub because I've got one of the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane".

"To focus on one competition can only be if you are already out, or almost out, or if it's late in the season".

"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".

Jurgen Klopp has been left baffled by Gary Neville's claims that Liverpool should ignore Champions League competition this season and focus on a Premier League title challenge. "We don't have a problem with young English players not being involved often enough".

"Because I do believe that with that best XI on the pitch week in, week out, they have an opportunity to do it". However, Spurs have also picked up 43 points during this time period although they have played one more game but this should mean that today's game is an absolute thriller.
