Speaking of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Klopp said: “He’s had a big impact. It’s no secret how much I like him as a person and a player. His second goal, especially, was incredible. I didn’t see one like this for a long time, if ever. It was a really special moment.

“So it’s all good – no headache, just a bigger number of players to choose from.”

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is the only absentee for Tottenham, who impressed in a 5-0 thrashing of Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League during the week. The France captain is recovering from a dislocated elbow and will not feature again till next year.
