Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp wary of threat that Tottenham Hotspur pose for 2022/23 season
Speaking before the FA Community Shield game against Manchester City (h/t Football.London), Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claimed that he is wary of the threat an improved Tottenham Hotspur can pose in the upcoming season.
The Reds boss is one of the finest managers in the business and has led Liverpool to virtually every major trophy since arriving on Merseyside in 2015. Despite a couple of decades of uncertainty, LFC are one of the big dogs in English football again.
Spurs fans would be hoping Antonio Conte could have a similar impact at N17. The Italian manager is set to have his first full season at the club and has had an impressive summer transfer window so far.
It seems that hasn’t gone under Klopp’s radar. The former Borussia Dortmund manager recognises Tottenham as one of the teams that will make life hard for title contenders during the next campaign.
“Arsenal, I saw the result but pretty impressive 6-0 or whatever against Sevilla I don’t think that ever happened to be honest. Chelsea will come or is there already, Tottenham improved a lot so it will be a tough, tough season.”
It seems that Arsenal’s 6-0 win against Sevilla in their latest pre-season friendly impressed the German manager. But our fans would want to believe that we are the best-placed team to challenge last season’s top three clubs.
“But we are here as well, we don’t want to rest on what we achieved or not achieved in the last years, we are ready for the new challenge and that’s all.”
Conte led Spurs to a top-four finish, beating Arsenal and Manchester United to the UEFA Champions League spot, and has only gone on to strengthen his team this summer.
Having signed the likes of Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, Richarlison, and Djed Spence, we can expect to see more of Conte’s influence in our tactics from the upcoming season.

Liverpool and Manchester City will be hard to catch. The two teams continue to set the standards in English football but Conte, being the serial winner that he is, will make life very hard for them at the top of the table.
