The game will be another test of the Reds' title credentials but John Barnes doesn't believe the outcome of the game will be remembered at the end of the season for being massively important in the race to win the 2018/19 Premier League title.
The former Manchester United and England defender, who is a pundit for Sky Sports, was essentially complimenting the job Klopp has overseen and stated that, without distractions, Liverpool have a squad capable of overhauling Manchester City.
Liverpool have only conceded one goal this season, to Spurs' four, but share their richest talent further up the pitch.
Neville had put forward the idea in an interview with The Times early in the week.
"The football they are playing under Jurgen Klopp, it's fantastic". A year ago I don't think even Gary Neville would have said 'let City win in the Champions League.' Sitting in an office talking about football is different to doing the job.
"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it", the Liverpool manager said: "But sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".
"If it's late in the season that you see you have a chance to do that or do this and all that stuff".

"I think you should go for all competitions", he said.
Alli has been ruled out of the match against Liverpool due to injury, and Tottenham manager Pochettino has suggested that the 22-year-old England worldwide striker will miss the Champions League match against Inter. I don't understand, we play our kids or what?
Liverpool were less affected by the demands of World Cup action than their title rivals and it has shown in their fine start to the season with four straight Premier League wins to sit top of the table.
"I could have changed five or six players that day", he added on Lovren's 20th minute substitution.
"I like Alderweireld but I think I'm going to have to pick both of Liverpool's centre-halves [Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez]".
The 25-year-old has just scored two goals in six games for club and country this season, with the statistics behind those numbers making for even more unsettling reading.
