While Mignolet was eventually replaced by Loris Karius between the sticks, Lovren remained and finished the season with a Champions League and a World Cup final appearance.
"The plan was and still is that he will make us better".
In an interview with The Times, Neville said he thought Liverpool could win the league if they were able to rest their star men week-on-week, something they particularly need due to their high pressing game. "We will see exactly how we can do it", said the Reds manager when asked about possible rotation at his pre-match press conference.
"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest".
I expect both teams to score as they usually do in this fixture, but I'll have to edge towards Liverpool to win it.
"(We are) disappointed because we are going to miss him for maybe this game and against Inter Milan in Champions League", said Pochettino. When we talk about midfielders like Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta, he's like this type of player, but, please, he needs to take my words in a very positive way. I don't understands, do we play with kids or what?
The head coach added: "Of course he's the first that regrets everything, and all that happened yesterday is not good". I would never judge a player on 20 minutes of his life, ' Klopp explained. It was kind of a wake-up call for the players.
Tottenham's preparation for a game against a Liverpool side boasting a 100 percent record so far has not been ideal.
"The most hard decisions are when you have no players!"
"What I would say is Liverpool have solved the problems they had against Spurs past year, particularly at Wembley when Kane scored and Lovren made a couple of mistakes".
"We know Harry Kane very well in the last more than four years we work with him. It was the moment where we could show that we are really convinced about what we are doing, we just had to do it more often and in a better way".
Goalkeeper Lloris sustained a thigh problem during last month's 3-0 win at Manchester United, which meant he missed the subsequent 2-1 loss at Watford and France's global commitments over the past week.
