Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp labelled Saturday's 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur his side's best game of the season but warned that their ideal start did not mean they could expect a trouble-free ride in the Premier League.

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. "He's not okay really at the moment". Yes, we learned, the experience was that one game can be completely different to another.

Former Tottenham star Waddle was following the match, and he has criticised the role of the Netherlands worldwide in Liverpool's opening goal which was scored by Georginio Wijnaldum with a header.

Speaking to reporters, Klopp said on his new £43million man: "I don't like to compare players but we had similar question about Robbo and Oxlade and I'm not sure if Sadio (Mane) played from the beginning, but I think he had a full pre-season".

Firmino wrapped up Liverpool's fifth successive win soon after the interval when the Brazil forward tapped in after more sloppy defending and another Vorm misjudgement.

Tottenham surely would've been better off with an Erik Lamela or a Son Heung-min, pacy players better able to attack full-backs with their dribbling.

Liverpool were the better side against Tottenham, who will be hugely frustrated with their performance this afternoon.

The German coach said his team would have lost if they'd been "5 percent less" with their performance, but they weren't and they won again as talk about them winning the title continues.

"We had quite a good session yesterday, couldn't do too much because some of them came off the plane".

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

Firmino was on target for Jurgen Klopp's side at Wembley as they continued their 100% start to the Premier League season, but the 26-year-old was withdrawn late in the second half after getting an accidental poke in the eye from Jan Vertonghen. I don't like the situation. If it was given it's 2-2 if we score the goal. Fantastic we won all of them, fantastic we improved during the season.
