Tottenham 1 Liverpool 2: Klopp hails Wembley win as best display yet

Liverpool maintained their ideal start to the 2018/19 Premier League season by beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Wembley Stadium.

"If he wants to take it, take it ... but of course his potential is to be a very, very good player for England and Tottenham, first for Tottenham and then if England believe that he can help them for England too", the Spurs manager added.

Firmino then had his goal with 53 minutes play to all but seal the result, with Erik Lamela netting a late consolation.

Although Jurgen Klopp will be curious as to why his side couldn't convert more of the many chances they created, the closing five minutes of today's game very almost undone what was a landmark win for Klopp's side. So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so.

The visitors continued to dominate the game and should have broken the deadlock in the 21st minute after Mohammed Salah found himself one-on-one with Michel Vorm, in goal in the absence of injured Hugo Lloris.

"I have no clue what exactly happened, but it's something with the eye and for sure at the moment it's not comfortable for him, so we will see". A lot of people watch our games when we play Champions League and that's our job that we do the best we can do in all these games.

Liverpool is the early front-runner alongside Chelsea, which has also won five out of five.

The Reds made it five consecutive wins as they continue their impressive start to the Premier League.

The only cloud hanging over an otherwise successful afternoon in London was an eye injury sustained by Firmino during a 75th-minute clash with Jan Vertonghen that saw Spurs awarded a free-kick.

Up next for the Reds is the start of their new Champions League campaign, with last season's runners-up taking on Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday.

"Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates with club doctor Andy Massey following the positive assessment".
