Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino feels Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will need time to implement his full ideas - and that this weekend's Premier League clash at White Hart Lane will come too soon for his big impact to have much of an effect, according to the Daily Star.
Indeed, the Argentine has compared the Reds boss's switch to his own experience at Southampton.
With the Saints, Pochettino had slightly less time to prepare for his first game - but the Tottenham head coach believes the same principle still applies.
Pochettino is quoted as telling reporters ahead of the Liverpool clash: "My experience from Southampton is I had three days to prepare the game against Everton and you work very hard to try to settle on some ideas.
"But it is impossible to put all the ideas and the philosophy across to the team, but always when you try and change something it's not easy."
As the Argentine warns, Klopp is unlikely to have had enough time to implement his full ideas at Anfield - and may not do so for a good few weeks or months.
But there are two key Klopp questions relating to the Tottenham clash. Firstly, has the German had enough time to implement enough of his ideas to win one match (including the training time with some squad players during the international break)?
And, secondly, are Klopp's plans going to be heavily affected by injuries to Liverpool's Joe Gomez and Danny Ings?
