"It's always against [Manchester] City like this and against Tottenham it is like this and that's it pretty much".

Tottenham, meanwhile, are aiming to go one step further this term after they finished as runners-up to champions Chelsea last season. We have a challenge when we go there, they know it will not be an easy game so let's play and see what happens.

Klopp has met with disappointment on his two previous visits to Wembley.

Tottenham's last league match saw them beat Bournemouth 1-0 thanks to Christian Eriksen's goal, which secured them their first home league win of the season at the fourth attempt. Both teams are always spot on and want to do the best.

Spurs are getting used to playing their home games at Wembley this season while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.

Spurs picked up a superb 1-1 draw away at Real Madrid on Tuesday night, with Mauricio Pochettino's men defying expectations at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Former Liverpool defender and current BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson says he expects the points to be shared when Tottenham play host to Liverpool on Sunday.

Striker Fernando Llorente was handed a surprise start against Real Madrid in midweek, and the Spaniard impressed with his link-up play with Harry Kane in a two-man Spurs attack.

"We tried to impose our own style of play, and our key players, and the whole team managed to play with a calm and clear head", Sanchez said. For me it's one of the best squads in the Premier League.

"Facing Liverpool will be hard but we will look to win the game because we have the mentality to keep up the performance from Tuesday".

Dele Alli returns following a Champions League suspension, but fellow midfielders Mousa Dembele (hip) and Victor Wanyama (knee) are both out.

Klopp, who has tasted a Wembley victory with Liverpool when they beat Barcelona 4-0 in a pre-season friendly there previous year, insists the bricks and mortar of the national stadium are irrelevant to him.

Simon Mignolet is also set to return in goal and 20-year-old Joe Gomez will hope to come back into the team at right-back after receiving plaudits for the way he shackled United winger Anthony Martial last weekend.
