Ange a fan of Klopp

Spurs have also been a team on the rise since Postecoglou took charge, with a wave of optimism sweeping across the white half of North London after the club had their best start to a league season in 57 years.

While Postecoglou has only begun to leave his mark, the Australian praised Klopp for what the German had brought to not just Liverpool but the entire league, marvelling at their high-tempo playing style offensively and defensively.

“Jurgen is an outstanding manager, he’s one the managers I think it’s fair to say who has made an impact on the competition, not just his club,” Postecoglou said.

“When he came in, with the way Liverpool went about things, he challenged quite a few of the conventions about the Premier League and introduced a new style of play that others have followed. It’s a great test for where we are at the moment in terms of our development.”


The atmosphere is building around the stadium. Team news is not too far off.

Klopp a fan of Ange

Liverpool are braced for a tough Premier League match against Tottenham, said Jurgen Klopp said while lavishing praise on the north London side’s new boss Ange Postecoglou.

Fourth-placed Spurs are enjoying their best start to a league season in 57 years, while Liverpool in second are chasing a sixth successive league win and eighth in all competitions.

Postecoglou, who finished his career at Scottish Premiership side Celtic with a domestic treble before joining Spurs in June, has his task cut out after the Premier League club finished eighth last season and sold record goalscorer Harry Kane to German champions Bayern Munich.

“It is a really tough test. I can’t remember an easy game; we played at Newcastle (United), that was tough. Chelsea too; the away games have all been tough, and home games not easy,” Klopp said,

“Tottenham is doing really well. Ange seems to be a top bloke; I’m looking forward to meeting him. If you saw Celtic play, you’d know how good a coach he is. He is delivering good football in a year when Harry Kane left. He is doing extremely well; they are exciting to watch. It’ll be a test for both of us.”

Dimitar Berbatov’s predicton

“Darwin Nunez is finally settling in and scoring goals. Patience is a virtue. Let’s hope Nunez continues. Liverpool’s unblemished record is a statement, and you can only praise them at the moment.

“I think it’ll be a tough game, and Spurs need to be ready and take chances.

“Liverpool have serious attacking power. Look at Nunez, Salah, and others. Both teams have players who can score goals.

“Maddison and Son are either scoring or creating goals. Their midfield also looks solid. They’re taking chances and enjoying their football.

“I’m expecting the usual suspects to show up against Liverpool unless they score a set-piece goal. Maybe Richarlison will start and score – but we’ll wait and see.

“Spurs 2-1 Liverpool.”
