Jamie Carragher insists Liverpool's January transfer window can not be deemed a success and believes their new £75million centre back Virgil van Dijk is far from peak physical condition.

Klopp was speaking to the media at Melwood on Friday afternoon to preview Liverpool's match with Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.

Using some of the money generated by the money-spinning transfer, Liverpool moved swiftly to sign Southampton's Virgil Van Dijk - and some fans responded by drawing over Coutinho's face with that of their new Dutch superstar.

Liverpool were beaten in the finals of the League Cup and Europa League in Klopp's first season in charge, and former Reds midfielder Hamann says the jury is still out on his fellow German's tenure as boss.

Carragher agreed on that point, but in an interview with Sky Sports said that Van Dijk "needs to get..."

"I think we need to at least go one round further so that Clyney can be involved, there's no chance for him in the next round against Porto".

"He is still a new player but you can not train in a Premier League match so we need to use the time between the matches and in the matches we have to deliver".


Despite Van Dijk not being at his best, Klopp has no issues with the defender and believes that, with the exception of the West Brom match, he has made a fine start to life at Anfield. We have the best nutrition department, no-one has come to me and said that.

Elsewhere, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is in line for his Arsenal debut when Theo Walcott and Everton travel to Arsenal on Saturday evening and there's a big game at the bottom too as Newcastle face Crystal Palace.

Kane said the fifth-placed London club can not let their guard down against Liverpool, after suffering a 2-0 defeat in the corresponding fixture last season.

"We finished second last season, third the season before, and of course if in the case that if we had won more games away from home, I'm sure that we would have won the title".

'Being fit means having more muscle than anything else. We will see van Dijk at his best after the summer. He can bring a lot of things in already and that's good.

'It's like expected to be honest, completely normal.
