Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has insisted the Liverpool game isn’t a big test but admitted he always looks forward to playing at Anfield.

Spurs head to Anfield for the first meeting between the sides since Liverpool beat Mauricio Pochettino’s side 2-0 in the Champions League final in June.

Liverpool go into the game three points clear at the top of the Premier League, while Spurs are 10th after a stuttering start to the campaign.



Pochettino is relishing the chance to face high-flying Liverpool and is looking forward to another showdown against Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“I don’t believe it’s a big test,” he said.

“Of course, it is going to be difficult. Liverpool are having a fantastic season, last season they were very close in the Premier League with Man City, they won the Champions League final against us and I think they’re doing a fantastic job.

“Jurgen Klopp is a fantastic guy, I admire him and we have a great relationship. It is great to meet him and play against a team like Liverpool that have unbelievable players.

“For me, it is a joy to go there and the motivation is there is there to play in a stadium like Anfield – it always is amazing.

“When you have the opportunity to play this kind of game, you are thankful because you never know if you are going to have the opportunity to play it again.”
