But Jurgen Klopp has today said that Firmino remains a doubt for Tuesday's game. Rest up lads, because you've got to go and do it all again. How we deal with that, I don't know.
This mature display marked them out as the most likely challengers to champions Manchester City. It's fantastic that we've won all five games.
'I think you have to [look at] the way this team is, the bond they have out there on the pitch.
"Now we have to prove that and do it again and again".
"Liverpool have a great manager and a great coaching staff, unbelievable players". We could have scored more, we controlled the game.More news: Senators fight over witnesses for Kavanaugh hearing, accuser might not show
"We know if we all do that, the fans will get behind us and it's a tough atmosphere to play in once they get behind us". I told him before the game, I have never seen him as fit as I have now since I came to the club.
The Brazil global made the difference with a brilliant 91st-minute victor, celebrating by covering up his eye, but Klopp made sure he highlighted Sturridge's contribution. "They have unbelievable quality".
"But it's something with the eye and for sure at the moment it's not comfortable for him".
Firmino had earlier netted the Reds' second goal in their 2-1 victory over Spurs, after Gini Wijnaldum had handed the Merseyside outfit a first half lead. That's why we deserved to win. He also admitted that they had improved and claimed that they must perform similarly over the course of the season.
Spurs were looking to bounce back from losing at Watford prior to the worldwide break, however, his side never really got going against a slick, well oiled Liverpool machine that have won all five of their Premier League matches to date.
"It's the toughest season because it's a challenge to work with a team that arrived a few days before the start of the competition". Since he has come in we have been going in the right direction and now it's about taking the final step and winning silverware.
