Tottenham 1 Liverpool 2: Wijnaldum and Firmino sound Reds' title intentions

However, Klopp suggested that he is feeling the effects from a busy schedule with Gareth Southgate's squad, and with a key Champions League clash coming up against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, the German stressed it was important to have his skipper running at full capacity.

A post was also involved in Liverpool's second as Jan Vertonghen slid in to block Mane's low cross, Vorm was unable to gather the rebound and Firmino converted from point-blank range.

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the worldwide break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27. That's how dominant Jurgen Klopp's side was in this match.

"I didn't see it back, I didn't see anything back from the game".

"Maybe [if he learns this] he will arrive to play in a very good level and be one of the best midfielders in England". I only saw the situation from 60 yards away.

"But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".

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

But Klopp, a victor at Wembley for the first time, won't be complaining after securing a rare away victory at one of their top six rivals, proving they are likely to be the biggest threat to champions Manchester City. It was an intense job to do and the boys did it.

Chelsea's period of Premier League dominance continued into the next season where they remarkably won their first nine games of the Premier League season. However, Pochettino's midfield diamond only sowed confusion and nullified Tottenham's usual threats. I am happy with his performance.

"That was a tough game, man!"

Tottenham have now suffered back-to-back defeats, with Watford puncturing the early season optimism that followed a 3-0 win at Manchester United.

"But because we were that good, it was so hard for Tottenham today".

"City are fabulous, they've got equally fabulous players, and I think it'll be nip and tuck all the way through if that's the intensity Liverpool can play with".
