Liverpool delivered best performance of season at Spurs - Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool continued their flawless start to the season to stay top of the Premier League after a goal in each half gave them a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday.

Spurs were looking to bounce back from losing at Watford prior to the global 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.

Indeed, in the next three months the Redmen will play in two of the four stadiums where we've won European Cups, and having visited the Rome home of two more glorious successes four months ago.

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 think we should be talking in a different way now - if it was given it's 2-2 - if we score the goal. We were that good it was hard for Tottenham".

"They deserved the victory, but there were some key moments", said Pochettino.

"The performance was better than the result and the result is flawless", he said. Because we came here and tried to do it, you need a really outstanding performance - and that was what the boys delivered today.

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.

"Now with the Nations League, global managers can not rest players because it is a proper competition".

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

Not enough to convince referee Michael Oliver that a penalty should be awarded, a retrospective look at the challenge appears to suggest Liverpool were rather fortunate to come out of the situation unscathed. Fantastic the improvement we had.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he sees their clash at Tottenham today as a test of their title credentials.

"If Saturday we play in the same way ... rather than take off players, I will be on the phone to say, "Houston, we have a problem".
