Tottenham Hotspur face a tough task returning to winning ways when they host Premier League leaders Liverpool on Saturday.

The Reds are expected to be in the mix for domestic honours in 2018-19, with a summer of big-spending having delivered a faultless start to the campaign. Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen.

"They are two completely different players", Pochettino said.

"It is a big misunderstanding that we will plan for the game tomorrow and [also] think about the game after and the game after". We have a good team together so that takes time.

Fabinho has only once been in the matchday squad for a Premier League game since his £39 million ($52m) move from Monaco.

Lamela pulled one back in added time for Spurs, who were supposed to open their new stadium with the game before it was pushed back by construction delays.

"What did he say about Manchester United in that case?"
