Next up is that meeting against PSG in the Champions League, where the trio will have to be at their best to outscore Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it?
Tottenham travel to Inter Milan and Liverpool host PSG on Tuesday before Spurs make the trip to Brighton in Saturday's tea-time kick-off and Liverpool welcome Southampton to Anfield on Saturday at 3pm.
"Everyone was saying everywhere that I absolutely wanted to leave Tottenham", Alderweireld said earlier this week. His inclusion in Klopp's matchday squad this week is good news as it potentially shows that he is close to starting for his new side.
And for the sake of the spectacle, the Premier League would also benefit from this type of fixture being played without both sides having to juggle their squads because of the draining effects of travelling the globe that global football can have on their players. Of course for me Liverpool is one of the best teams in Europe, not only England.
"Come on. If, against Liverpool at Wembley, you do not have the desire and the focus to play, it is not about playing well, it is about attitude and to say, "Hey, come on, we are aggressive and we try to win".
"They are two completely different players", Pochettino said. "Mauricio [Pochettino] has the same issues, we all have to work with what we've got".
"It was a kind of a wake-up call, to be honest", Klopp said. But I don't want to talk too much and praise him because if so, his head (grows big).
The victory underlines Liverpool's billing as the most likely challengers to reigning champions Manchester City this term, but having started the season with three wins, Spurs are now a team searching for answers.
