But they face their toughest test so far today as they visit a Tottenham side that eased to a 3-0 win at Manchester United less than two weeks ago.

"I think it would be a mistake if he [Salah] left because he will not play as well and score as many goals for anywhere else".

"Mentality is to have the capacity to win or beat Manchester United at Old Trafford and then go to Watford and enjoy the same capacity".

We don't play Champions League, or what?.Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job. When you analyse all the circumstances maybe it was right that happened early rather than at the end. But of course the game Saturday will be completely different.

"I don't know the team from 1990, I know Germany were the World Cup winners that year".

The summer transfer window and various tweaks at the back have seen Liverpool become the best defensive side in England over the last 10 months but one area of the game that the Reds fall short is in the dark arts department.

Chelsea coach Maurizio Sarri struggling to give up smoking
Chelsea return to domestic action against Cardiff City on Saturday, and Sarri expects a tough game for his returning players. Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri said on Friday he was open to Terry returning to the Premier League club as a coach.

"They can buy as many players as they want, but we have the same squad and we're going to go for it". It is to gain the points, have a good start, to create the basis and all that stuff, it is not about looking at how is he and how he is.

Spurs host Liverpool at Wembley on Saturday in a Premier League game which had been earmarked as the opening fixture for the 62,000-seater stadium. After four weeks, when the fitness levels looked quite OK - it got better and better for one player or another - then we had to send them away [on global duty].

"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. You're gonna have to bring in a centre forward, and you say to him "you're gonna be a sub because I've got one of the best strikers in the world in Harry Kane".

But now with Dele Alli, Hugo Lloris and possibly Son missing, Pochettino could soon learn to regret that decision.

Their first comes at Wembley, a game that provides the Reds with an opportunity to prove they have moved on from last season's humiliating 4-1 defeat.

Meanwhile, Simon Mignolet is fit and available after recovering from a hand injury.
