The Liverpool and Tottenham fans have been in contrasting moods in the Transfer Tavern this week following their Champions League results.
The Lilywhites propping up the bar have been celebrating after their side claimed a 2-1 victory away at Dortmund to secure their qualification as group winners with a game to spare, whilst The Reds are feeling anxious with qualification far from secured with one match to play in just under a fortnights time.

With the January transfer window just over a month away from re-opening, both Mauricio Pochettino and Jurgen Klopp will be looking to identify the areas of their squad that are in need of development.
According to The Daily Mail, both sides will be in the market for a left-back in January with Fulham’s 17 year-old starlet Ryan Sessegnon on their radar.
However, Sessegnon should resist the temptation of a Premier League move in January and continue with Fulham until the end of the season at least.
At just 17 years-old, Sessegnon still has plenty of developing to do to reach his full-potential and a premature move to the Premier League could negatively interfere with his progress.
So far this season, Sessegnon has started all 18 of Fulham’s matches in The Championship and gained plenty of valuable game-time in the second tier of English football.
If he moves to the Premier League when he is not ready for the step-up, he could end up wasting his time sitting on the bench and lacking the crucial playing opportunities that are pivotal to Sessegnon at this time in his career.
He has played in both a left-back role and a left-midfield role for The Cottagers this season, and although he looks to possess raw potential in both positions, he should continue at Fulham to gain a greater understanding of both positions before making a Premier League switch.
