Graham Roberts messages five Spurs stars on Twitter, gives key Liverpool advice

The former Tottenham Hotspur defender has been discussing the Liverpool clash on social media.

Graham Roberts may have been inducted into the Tottenham hall of fame but the former defender is still full of focus on the future.

Indeed, he is constantly guiding Tottenham's youngsters, even if just on Twitter, and took to social media once again on Friday afternoon.

Ahead of Liverpool's trip to White Hart Lane, Roberts had some key advice to five young Spurs stars he chose to include in his tweet: Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Mousa Dembele, Toby Alderweireld and Kyle Walker.

And his message is that Mauricio Pochetino's men must make the day about them - not Liverpool.

Naturally, there is plenty of attention surrounding the appointment of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield but Tottenham are the home team and Roberts wants them to show it.

If the Spurs that dismantled Manchester City can turn up and impose themselves on the Reds, it will be a tough day for Jurgen Klopp, while Pochettino's men can utilise a unique window of opportunity in that the German hasn't yet had enough time to fully implement his ideas at Liverpool.

That said, the buzz and momentum at Anfield following the appointment will be a dangerous weapon in itself...
