Mauricio Pochettino insisted he is not anxious after Tottenham slipped to a second successive Premier League defeat with a 2-1 home loss to Liverpool.

"It's no problem. It's sThe Egypt star was again missing from the scoresheet as the Reds defeated Spurs at Wembleytill early, five games, fantastic we've won all of them, we have improved during that".

After two weeks of an worldwide break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum.

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said: 'Quarterfinals of the Champions League, let City win'". We have to play against PSG.

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.

The Reds have had a sublime start to the season under Klopp and have already established themselves as leaders in the Premier League after winning all their games so far.

Liverpool dominated the second half v Spurs, and Firmino scored to ensure Klopp the victory and go top of the Premier League 2018/19 table.




"Tottenham have the quality to strike back and that's what they did off the corner".

Liverpool are now top of the Premier League table, having won all five of their opening games of the new season - the first time the club have done so since 1990.

"The performance today, for me, was better than the result", Klopp told a postmatch news conference.

"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again".

"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".
