That's it - you always try to have your best team.

In an interview with The Times this week, Neville spoke about Liverpool's resurgence and said they should "kick the Champions League into touch" and pour all their energies into winning a first championship since 1990.

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest".

Liverpool signed Brazil global midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for a fee of up to £43.7m in May but he has yet to feature.

"The thing is it is absolutely no problem".

Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's global commitments over the past week. That's not nice, it's only the job to do sometimes. The characteristics are flawless to play football. Whether we have the consistency is the big factor and we need to beat the teams we should beat while taking our share of scalps.

"The plan was - and is still - he will make us better and that is what we are working on. That's what we are working on".

Alli suffered a hamstring injury and Lloris a thigh injury.

Spurs, meanwhile, have several injury and fitness concerns at the moment.

The forward, who last featured for his club on August 11, recently returned from the Asian Games, where he helped South Korea to victory in the tournament in Indonesia. "He can not get a rest match-wise but he will find his form and maybe at the weekend".

Tiredness could be an issue for Son, who played eight games in 26 days for his country, but his return after playing just ten minutes of Tottenham's league season so far will be greatly received by Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Klopp, whose side have won their opening four Premier League matches of the season, went on to suggest too much is asked of today's players from a physical perspective.

He added: "But, as a United fan, I am very concerned about them", he added.

"We know Harry Kane very well in the last more than four years we work with him".

Leicester City v Liverpool, September 1: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Van Dijk, Gomez, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Salah, Mane, Firmino.
