Liverpool fans have been very expectant after the appointment of Jurgen Klopp to replace Brendan Rodgers. Their first test under their new manger would be when Liverpool visit Tottenham at White Hart Lane this October 17. The match is one in which Klopp would have to prove his worth.
Commenting on that match, Tottenham forward, Harry Kane, has come out to say that Tottenham can outrun Liverpool just as they have outrun other teams.
Harry Kane After England’s 3-0 win over Lithuania said: “In the first couple of games after a managerial appointment everybody tries to impress so they will probably have that little five per cent extra than usual. We expect that. The Liverpool players at England could not wait to get back to start working under him.
“But we have out-run every team we have played so far this season and that’s a sign we’re playing the manager’s tactics right and are fit enough to do it. And that’s what we have to do again on Saturday. Obviously Liverpool, with a new manager, will be up for it. But we know what we have to do.”
Although Kane is talking tough, Tottenham’s statistics against Liverpool tell a different story. Tottenham has not won a single game in their last five games against Liverpool. They have also conceded a total of 18 goals in these encounters. However, Tottenham has had a good start to this season. They haven’t lost a game except from the first match of the season which they lost to United.
Obviously, the match at White Hart Lane this weekend will be one that would be a very decisive one for both teams.
