Liverpool boss Rodgers face-to-face with Tottenham pair Sigurdsson, Dempsey

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will face two failed transfer targets tonight against Tottenham.

Spurs beat Rodgers for Clint Dempsey and Gylfi Sigurdsson over the summer.

The Reds manager said: "It (Sigurdsson) was something that if we wanted to do it we could have done it but it wasn't to be and we moved on.

"There was an offer to sign Dempsey - he was obviously a player who had done well during his time at Fulham and I am sure the likes of ourselves and other clubs were interested.

"But the club felt they had done what they could to get the player and he moved on to Tottenham."
