Tottenham to test Liverpool's title credentials as Watford eye Man Utd scalp


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.

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.

"Liverpool need to have the goal to play for titles, we are a big team - big teams have to have the goal to win titles", Shaqiri was quoted as saying by beIN Sports.

But should Mourinho's men suffer a third defeat in five league games, the chances of catching the likes of Liverpool and City would already look forlorn.

According to The Express, Brazil worldwide goalkeeper Alisson will also start for Liverpool against Tottenham, while his compatriot and 24-year-old defensive midfielder Fabinho will be on the substitutes' bench. I never really enjoyed them and I don't think many players do.

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".

Of course, you accept it because that's modern football, you just need to try and focus on the game but these games can often be slow starting and low on quality, because the players aren't fully rested and concentrated.

"Given the choice at the start of the season - if I were a Liverpool fan - which one would I like to get my hands on, it would probably be the Premier League". It will be a very tough opponent. I have some great memories of playing against them.

- More United woe at Watford?

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