London - Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane expects
Liverpool players to be pumped up and give "five percent extra" when
they visit White Hart Lane on Saturday for the first game under their new
manager Juergen Klopp.
Having spent the international break with the England squad,
which includes Liverpool duo Nathaniel Clyne and Danny Ings, Kane says it was
obvious that Liverpool players were eager to impress Klopp.
"Liverpool are going to have a new manager and they
will be up for it. In the first couple of game everybody tries to impress so
they will probably have that little five percent extra than usual," Kane
told the British media.
"We expect that. The Liverpool players at England could
not wait to get back to start working under him (Klopp)."

The 22-year-old striker is struggling to recapture the form
he showed last season but was confident Spurs' superior fitness can get them
the three points despite having lost their last five Premier League games to
the Merseyside club.
"...we have out-run every team we have played and will
be looking to do so again. That's a sign we're playing the manager's tactics
right and we are fit enough to do it. So it's a case of doing it again on
Saturday," he said.
Tottenham have not lost since the opening day of the season
and sit eighth in the table, just two points behind fourth place Crystal Palace
after eight games.
"We are happy to stay under the radar and keep putting
in good performances," said Kane.
"We haven't lost in the league since the first game of
the season. We've had a few draws where we should have won as well. But we are
playing well and doing the right things. We have a fit young squad.
"It's very open. I think that's the standard of the
Premier League. Anyone can beat anyone and that's been shown a lot this
season," he added.For
