Liverpool recorded their fifth Premier League victory in as many games by securing three points against Spurs, thanks to goals from "Gini" Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino.

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.

"If you compete and they were better, you say congratulations, but I think we can not compare".

"He came from another league playing in a completely different system to us and that takes time". I am long enough now in this business to know nobody will play the ideal season.

As it were, Spurs' tactic certainly didn't pay off, with Mauricio Pochettino's side really struggling to deal with Liverpool in the second half.

After Manchester City's comfortable run to the Premier League title last season, it seemed as if the most likely outcome this season was for the club to do it again with not much competition.

"You need an outstanding performance to win and that's what the boys delivered".

Liverpool blitzed Spurs early, creating two chances in the first three minutes with an opening goal being pulled back for Sadio Mané attempting a touch in an offside position.

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.

"For me the performance was better than the result".

"After we win at Old Trafford, we lost at Watford and we were bad", Pochettino said.

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

Liverpool FC are now leading the way at the top of the Premier League table as they bid to try and establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the title this season. The first half I think was even and we conceded again from a set piece.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has confirmed there is no long-term damage to his eye after a horrific incident involving Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen. I don't like the situation, because I don't like to say to Fabinho, who is full of energy and desire to play, to tell him he is not involved.
