Earlier in the week Gary Neville had suggested that Liverpool should sacrifice their Champions League ambitions in order to focus on their Premier League campaign, but Morrison disagreed.

Klopp's side do have a high octane playing style and, even with the summer's reinforcements, don't have as strong a depth as Manchester City so the point does seem pretty valid.

'We were not really in a competition with Man City in the Premier League last season.

"I know that's very hard to do but if they could go into February, March, April without it, I think they could have a real chance [of winning the league] if they had free weeks".

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.

Can Liverpool prove Klopp right by competing for both the Premier League and Champions League?

One man that certainly disagrees with Neville is Klopp. The England worldwide has not been in great form so far this season, and the striker will have to play an influential role against Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday.

Manager Klopp has since responded to Neville's comments in a press conference on Friday.

"Actually I don't like to compare players but we had similar players and questions about Robbo (Andrew Robertson) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain", he said. Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works. A lot of people watch our games when we play Champions League and that's our job that we do the best we can do in all these games. That would be amusing. Lucas Moura had an outstanding second half against Manchester United but when Spurs reverted to a back-three against Watford they were undone by two goals from set-pieces and will need to be far more alert against Virgil van Dijk today. The club he's more interested in? I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost.
