Despite Jurgen Klopp's pledge for his Liverpool side to outwork the opposition, Tottenham's Harry Kane said this week that his Spurs teammates will outrun Liverpool at the weekend.

New Liverpool boss Klopp is known for putting emphasis on work rate, but stats show that Spurs man Kane was right to challenge, as Spurs have covered more distance than every team they've played so far this season.
