Liverpool outclass Spurs to maintain 100% record

Virgil van Dijk Harry Kane

Firmino, who scored his team's second goal at the start of the second half against Tottenham, had to travel back to Liverpool separately from his teammates.

Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs were again out of sorts following their 2-1 loss to Watford before the global break, with substitute Erik Lamela's stoppage-time goal giving the scoreline a very flattering look for the hosts.

The incident left Liverpool fans fearing Firmino would be set for a spell on the sidelines, with Jurgen Klopp's side facing PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Liverpool dominated the second half v Spurs, and Firmino scored to ensure Klopp the victory and go top of the Premier League 2018/19 table. We had in all the games really good moments.

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

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.

"We all thought Liverpool would challenge for the title this season and so far they look the business".

Kane has been a constant scourge of Liverpool, scoring five times in seven appearances against the Reds, including twice in a 4-1 thrashing at Wembley last season.

Liverpool released a statement on Saturday evening confirming Firmino was discharged from a London hospital after receiving positive news on the eye injury.

Waddle's claim comes as Liverpool begin their seventh season since last winning a trophy. Amusing. I haven't seen it back, I only saw the situation from 60 yards away so I've no clue what exactly happened.

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

The only cloud hanging over an otherwise successful afternoon in London was an eye injury sustained by Firmino during a 75th-minute clash with Jan Vertonghen that saw Spurs awarded a free-kick. "It's something to do with the eye and for sure it's uncomfortable for him", Klopp said.

"A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage". At this stage, the No.9 has not been ruled out.
