Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has labelled Tottenham as the best counter-attacking side in Europe ahead of his side's meeting with the North London club on Sunday.
Both teams are in the race to finish in the Champions League places in this season's Premier League.
Spurs sit in sixth position on the log, one place and one point above the Reds, following their 2-2 draw against United on Thursday night which Klopp believes will be a huge "boost" for them.
“This is a season where a lot of things are difficult for a lot of teams,” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.
“We have our problems, Chelsea have problems, Tottenham have problems.
"It is not cool for us but opens it up for other teams and Champions League spots are there to grab for other teams.
“Little mistakes can cause massive problems. I don’t know anything about that for Tottenham, but they showed they are outstanding last night.
"I will be prepared for the best possible Tottenham side. They are the best counter-attacking side in Europe by some distance.”
The German did reckon that Spurs' counter-attacking system played a vital role in the stalemate at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium, insisting that his side will prepare to stop them from flourishing on the counter-attack.
“Last night they played a similar system to what they’ve played for a while.
"The mentality boost is clear, the game could have gone either way.
“They had a massive chance at 1-0. That’s how football is, it could have gone either way.
"Lots of the players who will face us played last night. That’s what we’ll prepare for," Klopp added.
