Jurgen Klopp On Top of Liverpool Midfield Battle - Former Reds Boss

Brazil defender Fabinho during the first half of the International Friendly Soccer match between the the United States and Brazil

But, barring their opening day thrashing of West Ham, the Anfield giants are yet to hit peak form this term.

"We're not playing at our very best, Jürgen (Klopp) has admitted that and I agree".

"I'm very motivated to be playing in it - it's an attractive proposition - but I've been told by many people that a lot of overseas players come into the Premier League and they take time to integrate, depending on the circumstances".

He played for Brazil at right-back in their 2-0 win over the United States of America on Friday evening, speaking to Globo Esporte, he says he feels ready for Premier League action now, "My start has been good, good adaptation".

"I'm aware I'm still young but I do want too impose my own ability, but when I play I don't want to just copy those guys, but you try to learn from different players and see what they do well and try and improve that aspect of my game".

"The way the team played I got it right, the more experienced players helped me, the technical team as well". He has been quite critical even when we have won: 'This wasn't us at our best, we can get better'.

"Sometimes you have to say: 'You have to show me in training sessions that you're better than what's in the team at the moment.' ". I think we'll be up there with always two, three or four teams that have got a chance of winning it.

"Hopefully this is our year because I've waited long enough!"

Evans is confident his old club now have the strength in depth that is required at the top level.

He said: "It's competition for places".

All three were expected to play some part in the friendly against the central American nation in the early hours of Wednesday morning, but national team Manager Tite is expected to make several changes to the starting line up.

Tottenham are going to need to be at their best to get anything out of this match and it's important that they make up for the loss against Watford with a good performance.

Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley at 12:30pm on Saturday and Jurgen Klopp was expected to reassess his key stars' fitness ahead of the fixture.
