Liverpool delivered best performance of season at Spurs - Jurgen Klopp

Share

Liverpool survived a late scare to defeat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Wembley Stadium.

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?

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.

"Tottenham won't be happy but because we were so good, it was hard for them".

"He has the possibility and the potential of course but now it is up to him and we go again: mentality".

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.

Four wins from four in the opening stretch of the season spoke well of Liverpool's ambitions without them ever quite hitting top gear, but the relative ease with which they dispatched Spurs counts as a statement.

However, Liverpool preserved their flawless start with five wins from five after coming through arguably their biggest test yet.

"I don't wait for problems, but I am old enough to know they will come".

Waddle's claim comes as Liverpool begin their seventh season since last winning a trophy. "I'm not sure, but maybe we have an injury with Roberto".

"It was a free kick for Tottenham, right?" I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest.

"A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage".

After the match, Firmino was taken to Moorfield's Eye Hospital in London and there were fears that he could miss Liverpool's first Champions League clash of the season.

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