The 23-year-old joined the Reds in the summer from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and has made four league appearances - three from the start - helping Jurgen Klopp's men maintain a 100 percent start to the season.

"If you want to win Premier League titles then you have to win these games, so Liverpool will be judged on this too".

"I fancy Liverpool based on the counter-attack game", Merson told Sky Sports.

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?".

Keita was snapped up by Liverpool past year from RB Leipzig but with the condition he remained with the German side until this season.

"It's hard in the Premier League, because you have a lot of big teams, so competition is there".

Speaking in an interview with BetVictor, Owen said: "This is a real test of Liverpool's title credentials and a win at Wembley will go a long way to proving their doubters wrong".

In midfield, Spurs have the option of recalling Eric Dier to play alongside Mousa Dembele in a double pivot if they revert to a 4-2-3-1 system, though they have been playing a 3-5-2 most recently.

"At Bayern they only have the mentality of winning titles".

"Sometimes you have to say: 'You have to show me in training sessions that you're better than what's in the team at the moment'". As the opposing team, you have try and stop him getting chances, most importantly by limiting free kicks and corners. We are still a young team.

An article written there only just after EPL action began suggested a two-club race between Liverpool and Manchester City, and while there's clear logic behind the point, it's also the most outlandish on this list. "That has to be our aim".
