Liverpool FC have reached the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2009 but Premier League leaders Manchester City stand in their way of a last-four spot.
The Reds are on course to finish in the Premier League’s top four in successive seasons under Jurgen Klopp thanks to a 10-point cushion over fifth-placed Chelsea FC.
Tottenham ended an 28-year winless run at Stamford Bridge last weekend thanks to a 3-1 victory over the defending Premier League champions to cement their top-four spot.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have qualified for the Champions League in the last three seasons, although Tottenham squandered a strong position to lose 4-3 on aggregate to Serie A giants Juventus.
Tottenham are in the FA Cup semi-finals but will have to get past Manchester United to secure a place in the Wembley showpiece.
Former Manchester United defender Neville defended Klopp and Pochettino over their lack of silverware since taking over the reins at Liverpool FC and Tottenham.
“When I look at the job Pochettino and Klopp are doing… but they haven’t won a trophy in two or three years,” Neville told his Sky Sports podcast.
“I couldn’t say they’re doing bad jobs because they haven’t won a trophy. They are getting [in the] Champions League.
“There is progression. They are finishing in positions they have never done [before].”
Liverpool FC and Tottenham played out a 2-2 stalemate at Anfield in their most-recent meeting.
