Liverpool's Firmino eye gouged by Tottenham defender Vertonghen

Liverpool's Firmino eye gouged by Tottenham defender Vertonghen

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.

A ideal start through five games is not unheard of in the Premier League as Chelsea themselves have done it four times, though both of Liverpool's previous five-for-five came in the old First Division.

"For me the performance was better than the result". "The result is the most important thing and the result is flawless".

"Winning here is so hard, unbelievably difficult, so I never expect that. I just felt Liverpool wanted to come to an agreement quickly", he told the Telegraph. They are always looking for solutions in the game and play as we do.

"It was our best game of the season for sure". We had in all the games really good moments. But then nothing happened anymore.

"He represents everything that's good about Liverpool and why they have dominated Spurs here and prevented them from playing". Klopp, though, stressed that there will be plenty more obstacles for his team to overcome in the rest of the campaign.

"It's no problem, it's still early, five games".

Neville, who was an integral part of Sir Alex Ferguson's unparalleled success story at Old Trafford, commented that the Reds need to loosen their focus on continental football if they are to win the league title this year. He is an incredibly compact player - very neat and tidy with the ball with an excellent eye for a penetrating pass.

The Brazilian striker was poked in the eye, seemingly inadvertently, by Jan Vertonghen with fifteen minutes to go in the contest. "We have seen that we can do it", Klopp said.

'I'm not sure, but there may be an injury with Roberto, we don't know exactly in the moment, ' admitted Klopp.

"I don't know what he means by that to be honest", he added.

"It was a free-kick for Tottenham, right?"
