Tottenham's official website confirmed that both players are back in full training but it is still uncertain whether they will be involved against Liverpool. This time, though, he wanted to explain. "We have different players, with different características. But in a different way".

"These are kind of six point games, I'm not sure if you use that phrase in England, but it is one of these".

Lallana has not played in his clubs last two games as he continues his recovery from long-term injury which has seen him start just two games this season. But while it may be tight on the field, Pochettino insisted, off the field this is very far from a meeting of equals. The Reds bounced back from a tough defeat against Swansea City in that game, whereas Tottenham are unbeaten in 2018. When he is not able to score from open play, he demands spot kicks and converts them. And Sunday could be van Dijk's moment. That was a decision of all of us, we think they are ready. I think it will be a very hard for us. This works excellently in combination with Kane, and while those two don't necessarily combine directly in the manner of a classic strike partnership, they work exceptionally well together. "I hope that they can help the team achieve what they want".

Regarding Tottenham's on-going development, Pochettino said: "We've improved a lot since last season". They started as marginal favourites, pressed too hard from the start and were punished by two goals on the break in quick succession. Spurs are yet to beat a fellow top six away from home this season having lost to both Manchester clubs and Arsenal. "He's done some wonderful stuff for PSG so we are excited to see what can happen".

Speaking ahead of Sunday's crunch game against Liverpool, live on Sky Sports Premier League, the Spurs boss says they are better prepared than ever to travel to Anfield, where the north London club have a poor record. And so it is hard to resist the conclusion that the block is partly a mental one.

It's not often in the Premier League that the front-runners in the race for the Golden Boot include players whose teams aren't even challenging for the title, but that is exactly the case ahead of this weekend's mouth-watering clash at Anfield. "But if you combine home and away [form], I think the last two seasons-and-a-half, I think we are second [against the top six]. It is a problem for everyone".

Seven of Liverpool's last eight games have ended with more than 2.5 goals. They are available at odds of (2.10) for a big home win with Bet9ja. And the Argentine reminded the media, not for the first time, that it is unfair to compare Spurs to any of their rivals, saying they are not in a position to compete financially with the rest of the "big six".

So will Pochettino adapt his fabled philosophy, as he has done in this season's Champions League? "We can play with possession".

"The whole world buys players from everywhere, but no one buys one player from Tottenham". Without a striker. Three at the back. Tottenham pride themselves on keeping it watertight at the back, particularly on the road against top opponents.
