Reliable journalist delivers positive Liverpool team news ahead of Spurs clash

Including the wins over Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool are set to play six games this month across three competitions with the Champions League and League Cup starting soon.

Georginio Wijnaldum scored away from home in England's top flight for the first time and Roberto Firmino gave Jurgen Klopp's men breathing space in the 54th minute.

Erik Lamela grabbed a late consolation for Spurs, who could not avoid a second straight Premier League defeat. We had in all the games really good moments. We need to improve a lot.

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. "I see the game and I talk here and analyse it and then I don't think too much about it anymore, to be honest", he said.

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

"We will see, and then we play Paris Saint-Germain-they won yesterday without Neymar and Mbappe, so they can obviously rest players in the league".

Liverpool's performances early in the 2018-19 season are reminiscent of Barcelona at their very best, according to club legend Graeme Souness.

But despite the win, the victory was soured by what was a horrific injury suffered by Firmino.

The Brazilian forward, who ended up scoring the deciding goal from a yard out, told the club's medical staff that he could not go on after being poked in the eye by Spurs defender Jan Verthongen in the 74th minute.

There was plenty for Klopp to be happy about, despite the Reds' lack of clinical finishing, as he now looks ahead to Tuesday's Champions League group stage tie against PSG. "It's something to do with the eye and for sure it's uncomfortable for him", Klopp said.

A statement on Liverpool's website said: "A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage".
