Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Liverpool’s game against Tottenham would be a very difficult game, as he claims Nunez has time to improve his game.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp admits that his side will be facing a difficult test against Tottenham in the Premier League.

The Reds are in a good mood following their 2-0 victory in the Champions League against Italian side Napoli.

Liverpool will not face Tottenham, a side who came back from 2 goals down to defeat Bournemouth last week in the Premier League before doing a comeback again in the Champions League against Marseille.

Speaking ahead of the game in his press conference Klopp said: “A big game for us, a massive game for us. Difficult as well. Spurs away. I didn’t count now the points distance between us and them but we cannot be picky with opponents and games and where we want to get points – we have to go for it, definitely. But it’s difficult, we all know Tottenham is a side that is well organised, defending on an extremely high level and counter-attacking is a massive thing now.

“The last two games when they had to chase the game, you saw the offensive power as well. I think Spurs is in a good moment. They had now two important games around the last minute, and especially the last one was a really big one for Tottenham. So we are prepared for a confident, strong opponent.”

Liverpool striker Darwin Nunez scored the second goal for the Reds against Napoli in the Champions League.

Klopp believes that the former Benfica player is a threat to opponents and also claims there is space for his improvement.

“Big steps and still space for improvement because the boy is an incredible package”, Klopp said of Nunez.  “You could see immediately he is a real threat in the finishing area, involved in a lot of things. That’s why you then realise, the few big chances he missed, imagine he would have scored from them as well.

“He is involved in pretty much everything. He is always an option to pass to, to cross the ball to, these kind of things. He came on and didn’t play extremely long but was involved in both goals, which is good. So, big steps, absolutely.”
