The Premier League Leaders enjoyed a lot of dominance from the opening minutes of the game with Firmino in the thick of things. He is used to scoring now and he wants to find the net.

Kane, who was the second-highest scorer in the league behind Salah last season, looks in need of a break to rest and recover a tired body.

Liverpool should have been well clear by the time Erik Lamela grabbed a late reply for Spurs, with Fowler echoing those who consider Klopp's side to be serious title contenders.

The visitors ultimately held on - despite a good shout for a Spurs penalty after Sadio Mane clipped the heels of Son Heung-min - to make it five wins out of five and Klopp was quick to hail his players after the match.

We saw at the World Cup just how Neymar takes to contact.

Fellow summer arrival Fabinho, a £43.7m recruit from Monaco, has yet to get on the pitch but it all adds up to providing Liverpool with much more strength in depth.

"Then I thought we controlled the second half until they broke on us".




"The lads have worked so hard in pre-season".

"We maybe have an injury with Roberto, something with his eye we'll see", said Klopp. We could have scored more, we controlled the game.

But anything less than three points would have been cruel on Liverpool, which punished mistakes from Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm and the rest of his error-prone team. At the same time we lost Emre (Can) - a fantastic player - and lost Chambo (Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain) through injury, and Ads (Adam Lallana) is also out, but back soon. "Now is Tottenham, but other teams will come".

Neville this week said the Reds' best chance of ending a 29-year wait to be English champions would be enhanced if they "kicked into touch" their European ambitions. "I am not anxious I promise you".

"I'm not sure it's possible to avoid his quality 100 percent. I completely trust my squad".

Former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Jerome Rothen believes Jurgen Klopp played a key role in getting Jordan Henderson's career back on track, with the Liverpool star initially trying to emulate club legend Steven Gerrard.
