Dimitar Berbatov Exclusive: Liverpool to continue winning run in lunchtime showdown

Dimitar Berbatov Exclusive: Liverpool to continue winning run in lunchtime showdown

LIVERPOOL will be close to claiming Premier League glory this season as they've learned how to win on their "bad days", former boss Roy Evans believes.

Xherdan Shaqiri thinks Liverpool need to develop a similar type of mentality to dominant Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich if they want to win titles.

"Disappointed, because we're going to miss him for this game, and possibly Inter Milan in the Champions League (on Tuesday), but it is not a big issue", Pochettino told reporters.

Barnes said: "Well, would we rather get silverware and win the League Cup and finish 25 points behind City or finish second behind City by three points and not win silverware?".

The Switzerland worldwide has made just two substitute appearances so far this season but it is confident of making a major impact at Liverpool and is delighted to be working under Klopp's management.

After winning their first four games to move to the top of the Premier League table, Liverpool now face into a brutal seven-game schedule that features Spurs, Chelsea, Southampton and Man City in the league, PSG and Napoli in the Champions League and Chelsea again in the Carabao Cup. You need to have a really, really good season to compete.

I expect both teams to score as they usually do in this fixture, but I'll have to edge towards Liverpool to win it. Betfair will be offering an industry best 7/2 on Liverpool/BTTS from Thursday evening. As the opposing team, you have try and stop him getting chances, most importantly by limiting free kicks and corners.

Friends of mine that support Manchester United often ask me what I would consider to be a successful season given the point that Klopp is at in his managerial tenure and the money that has been spent. We are still a young team. He plays more centrally for Switzerland, so maybe that's something going forward for Liverpool also. You don't give players a place in your team just because they're part of your squad. "That has to be our aim".
