In spite of winning all 5 games they have played so far this, Jurgen Klopp still believes that Liverpool had problems while playing against the Spurs and admitted that they would have problems during the season.
"For me the performance was better than the result".
We have the "most valuable player" conversation quite a lot, but if the Premier League was to introduce an award for the player upon whom his team leans most, Wilfried Zaha would be a shoo-in. When you win, you win. It's fantastic that we've won all five games. The slowing of his progress may concern some, but Keita's attitude is the right one and he is sure to improve. We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.
At the back they were composed, competitive, classy, solid -... We played the type of football that is really nice for a manager.
But Firmino says he and his eye are "okay" and thanked Liverpool fans for their support.
"I suppose the people I concentrated on the most being a midfielder, and looking at things offensively, was Bobby [Roberto Firmino], Sadio [Mané] and Mo [Salah]". I've been back with the boys for five or six weeks. I only saw the situation from 60 yards. "I do not have the personality to wait for problems but I know they will come", Klopp said.
Such wasteful finishing set up late drama as Lamela pounced on slack set-piece defending before Mane escaped a penalty shout for an untidy challenge on Son Heung-min. I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost.
"Now we're talking about character and personality".
"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again". Our live coverage lets you follow all the key moments as they happen. Three points. Now we have to go again.
As for Tottenham, despite an improved second-half display, they look well short of a side missing the spark which has powered their impressive form in recent seasons.
