Georginio Wijnaldum reveals how Liverpool targeted Michel Vorm to win at Wembley

TWO UP: Roberto Firmino fires Liverpool into a two-nil lead at Wembley.

A late Erik Lamela goal made things tighter than expected, but the result never seemed in doubt with Jurgen Klopp's team earning another three points.

Our only bright spark from the starting XI was Lucas Moura.

Ahead of Spurs' match against Liverpool on Saturday, he was asked if there would be two challengers taking to the field. The most important is to keep the balance.

The most felt of the absences was Alli's though, as his linkage between midfield and attack was sorely missed, with Harry Winks unable to completely fill the void left by his injured teammate. However, he failed to finish and drove the ball right at Spurs' backup goalkeeper Michael Vorm.

City and Chelsea await in Liverpool's next three league games and remained in touch with the leaders with comfortable home victories.

"After the Manchester United game, when the stats and the score showed how good we were, the manager (Mauricio Pochettino) said "we can't fly too high".

It feels like a good time to analyse how Klopp has fared at Anfield as an away game against Tottenham nearly three years ago was the first match in charge for the German, but are Liverpool actually any better now?

Brett Kavanaugh: accuser of Trump's Supreme Court pick goes public
Ford alleged in an earlier Post story Sunday that Kavanaugh and a friend - both "stumbling drunk" - corralled her in a bedroom. This seems like the republicans already knew about the assault claims, and whipped up a defense for when they became public.

Klopp's transitional first season, tentative steps towards where Liverpool stand now, still saw them reach the League Cup final and Europa League final, losing to Manchester City and Sevilla respectively.

This is embodied perfectly in the work of the ageless James Milner.

"That's why people say this is a "big game".

"So I'm really happy about the performance and proud of the performance because the boys came back Wednesday and Thursday, we trained yesterday and then playing our football in that way, that's really nice for a manager".

"They can buy as many players as they want, but we have the same squad and we're going to go for it". These runs they do, gives us the space to get in between. "It's only early in the season".

The German will ensure that his troops stay grounded and focused, but the title talk will be an unavoidable side plot of Liverpool's season.

It is not the first time Henderson has been consigned to the bench this season, with the midfielder only starting once in the league - during the victory against Leicester City before the worldwide break.
