Jurgen Klopp brushed off his history at Wembley insisting his sides have performed well at the national stadium.

Liverpool travel to Spurs temporary home this Sunday with both sides in a positive mood after impressive midweek Champions League performances.

Klopp said he had played their two times, with Dortumund in a Champions League final defeat to Bayern Munich and Liverpool's League Cup final defeat to Manchester City.  But he was quickly reminded about last summer's 4-0 victory by Liverpool over Barcelona in a pre-season friendly.  That interjection was met by this reply.

'Thank you very much. I thought I had lost all the games there'

came the reply from the German manager.

'I can say all the performances (there) have been really good. The cup final against City was unlucky with the penalty shoot at the end.  But we don't feel bad when we see Wembley.  And we never played against Tottenham there so it's nothing really. We only think about the game against Tottenham and not where we play.'

Turning his attention to Spurs themselves,

 'So far Tottenham have done a bit better with results than we have but I'm sure they can play better than they have done so far.  We can play better than we have done so far.  They've had fantastic development since I've been in England.  They were already good.  You can see what they achieve in the future.  Apart from Walker nobody has left the club this year and that will be a big challenge for them in the next few years.

'Harry (Kane) is not only one of the best strikers in Europe - he's one of the best strikers in the world. 100%'

'They know that it will not be an easy game so good - let's play - let's see what it happens.'
