It feels like a good time to analyse how Klopp has fared at Anfield as an away game against Tottenham nearly three years ago was the first match in charge for the German, but are Liverpool actually any better now?

Firmino then had his goal with 53 minutes play to all but seal the result, with Erik Lamela netting a late consolation.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes too much demand is placed on global stars who have had barely any rest following the World Cup.

Liverpool avenged last season's 4-1 defeat to Spurs at Wembley to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League. We had in all the games really good moments.

It remains to be seen which players make the squad for the Tottenham game but the bench we saw against Leicester last time out of Mignolet, Sturridge, Keita, Moreno, Lallana, Shaqiri and Matip is a world away. "We could have scored more and we controlled the game".

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

However, Liverpool preserved their flawless start with five wins from five after coming through arguably their biggest test yet.

However, the goal seemed to have come too late in the match as Liverpool held on to win the match 2-1.

"The first half was even and then we conceded again from a set-piece".

"It was a free-kick for Tottenham, right?" "I do not have the personality to wait for problems but I know they will come", Klopp said.

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

The Reds play host to Paris Saint-Germain on September 18 in the first round of the competition, and Klopp will have to ensure the squad is able to stay clear of any injuries. "It's something to do with the eye and for sure it's uncomfortable for him", Klopp said.

'Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates with club doctor Andy Massey following the positive assessment.
