Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Tottenham striker Harry Kane, the Evening Standard report.

Spurs welcome the Reds to Wembley on Sunday afternoon as they look to make up ground in the title race, and Klopp is clearly wary of his opponents’ primary threat.

Klopp was quizzed on Kane in his recent press conference, and was asked to compare the England international with Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku.

I don’t have to judge these two. They are both fantastic strikers. The difference is that Harry is much more a part of the game when he is not scoring – but I am pretty sure Lukaku can make these steps too.

Klopp also highlighted that Kane is not Spurs’ only threat, and that his men must be aware of the threat that the likes of Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen pose.

We avoided the balls to Lukaku and that must be a key for Harry as well but if we are too concentrated on one player then Dele Alli is everywhere or Eriksen shoots from everywhere with decisive passes.

Kane has been nothing short of sublime this season, and has picked up where he left off last term. In his first 11 games in all competitions, Kane has netted 11 goals, producing moments of brilliance in both the Premier League and Champions League.

It is a good team so you cannot be concentrated on one player. It will be a big challenge for them in the next few years because Harry is not only one of the best strikers in Europe, he is one of the best strikers in the world, 100 per cent.

Spurs fans will be hoping that the England international can inflict misery on Liverpool when the two sides go toe to toe.
