Roberto Firmino breaks silence after horrific eye injury v Tottenham

Roberto Firmino breaks silence after horrific eye injury v Tottenham

Georginio Wijnaldum picked a good time to score his first away goal in the Premier League when he headed Liverpool into a 39th-minute lead, before Roberto Firmino steered home a second early in the second half to ensure Liverpool made it five wins from five.

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.

"I have no clue what exactly happened", said Klopp. They are always looking for solutions in the game and play as we do.

"Let me say, it was the best game of the season for us for sure".

"It was a very good performance, maybe our best against Tottenham in all the years since I'm here, but I imagine only five per cent less and probably we would have lost. If they can keep this intensity going, whoever finishes in front of them this season will win the league".

Against Liverpool, he was substituted in the 73rd minute for Son, the South Korean making his first return since winning the recent Asian Games.




"They have the Champions League starting and the cup competitions to come so we'll see how they get on, but it's a strong start".

"I don't wait for problems, but I am old enough to know they will come".

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest". "We have to think about the game tomorrow, then we see who we can choose for the next game". "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".

Firmino was discharged from a London hospital on Saturday afternoon after suffering an abrasion of the eye during the match.

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has confirmed there is no long-term damage to his eye after a horrific incident involving Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen.

Up next for the Reds is the start of their new Champions League campaign, with last season's runners-up taking on Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday. At this stage, the No.9 has not been ruled out.
