Jurgen Klopp not entirely happy with Liverpool's transfer dealings

Mauricio Pochettino tries to switch off from football and read a book or watch a film but the Tottenham Hotspur manager has confessed it is a losing battle as the "Beautiful Game" is his life. Liverpool stop a two-match skid by comfortably beating Huddersfield Town 3-0 with goals from Emre Can, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Meanwhile, Pochettino suggested in his press conference that both Danny Rose and Toby Alderweireld will also return to action soon after the England worldwide left-back made the substitutes' bench during the midweek win over Manchester United. The Reds are now placed third with 50 points, but Tottenham are not far behind in the fifth spot with 48 points.

Discounting runaway leaders Manchester City who beat West Brom, Liverpool and Spurs were the only other top six teams to win in midweek with Chelsea, Arsenal and of course, Manchester United, all beaten. The North London side can climb above the Reds into the top four with a win on Sunday. They are just a good side and they are still together.

"Top four, for sure, is a success", declared Klopp, who won the Bundlesliga title twice as Borussia Dortmund coach.

You could argue it was their best display of the season, with competition coming from the win over Real Madrid and, more relevantly, their demolition of Liverpool in late November.

As for the away side, Spurs kicked their season back into gear with a confident 2-0 win over Man Utd at Wembley.

Last week, Klopp revealed that Lallana was dealing with a "little issue" but could be available for the important Premier League encounter at Anfield.

They see all sides of the debate, yet aren't able to have one themselves in the eyes of our democracy as it is now structured. Trump, Schumer, Kamala Harris, Mitch McConnell and countless others won't have to face what the Dreamers are experiencing.

In terms of his own game, Sterling is enjoying the best season of his career having scored 19 goals and laid on six assists for quadruple-challenging City.

Although Nathaniel Clyne is recovering well and has been named in the Champions League squad, he is still far from starting a game.

Moura, who joined from Paris St Germain for an initial fee of £25million, is arguably the biggest name to arrive at Spurs since Pochettino took charge in 2014. If he can find his best form for Sunday, the Reds have a good chance of putting some distance between them and their rivals.

A 1-1 draw is the most likely result in the betting market at 7/1 odds at William Hill.

Spurs golden boy Kane now leads the race with 21 goals, trailed closely by Reds hitman Salah with 19, although some suggest it is the latter who has proved a more valuable asset this term, and the stats might just back that up.

So poor in the first half, United finally found some rhythm after the interval, but they were denied a penalty when Son Heung-Min blocked a Sanchez header with his arm, while Lukaku saw his drive turned over by Hugo Lloris.
