Jurgen Klopp has stated that he is expecting Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham side to have “some emphasis on defending” when they face at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday evening.
Mourinho’s side go into the game with just one win from five games over the festive period, while Liverpool have yet to lose in their 20 Premier League games so far this season, drawing just one clash at Manchester United in October.
In his pre-match press conference, The Reds boss, speaking about Spurs, said:
“Expecting an organised Spurs side putting some emphasis on defending for sure, counter-attack. Team is too good technically to do just that.
“Eriksen, Alli, Lo Celso, lots of midfielders who can create with speed. Moura and Son, too. Aurier and Sessegnon have speed.”
“We cannot be 100% sure what they will do but we have signs from what Mourinho did at Man United against us.
“Different teams and players though. That is normal.
“Our analysis always ends quite a way from the truth. It is the same for us, we want to be unpredictable.”
