Tottenham fans react on Twitter to timing of Klopp's Liverpool appointment

Tottenham are the unfortunate team in the way of Jurgen Klopp for his first game in charge for Liverpool.

Liverpool have confirmed the appointment of Jurgen Klopp as manager, giving the German a week to prepare to face Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The north London side are the unfortunate club to run into the Klopp hype, and a rejuvenated Liverpool side who will believe the sky is the limit.

Manchester City will testify that visiting Tottenham is a tough test, beaten 4-1 a fortnight ago, but the international break halts Spurs' momentum and gives teams like Liverpool a chance to regroup.

Tottenham have recorded big wins over Liverpool in the recent past, beating Kenny Dalglish's Liverpool 4-0 three years ago, but were also hammered 5-0 in December 2013.

Brendan Rodgers' side had lost the momentum of his Luis Suarez inspired team, and the Reds decided it was time to part ways with the manager and appoint a replacement.

Tottenham must look on the fixture positively, as a chance to catch Klopp's side cold, before he has had a lot of time to work with his players, many of who will be returning late from midweek international fixtures.

Fans have reacted with differing opinions to the challenge, with some bemoaning their misfortune of the fixture, to others looking forward to giving the former Borussia Dortmund manager a rough welcome to English football.
