Liverpool midfielder Wijnaldum: I held talks with Pochettino about Spurs

Danny Higginbotham predicts Tottenham v Liverpool FC

Liverpool got goals from Georgino Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino, only conceding late, making it five straight wins to start the season. Maybe it is just a case of early season missteps and nothing more than that, but these two teams have gone in opposite directions since last October, and Liverpool are undoubtedly the one on an upwards trajectory.

More sloppy play from Tottenham after the break gave Vorm the opportunity to atone for his error with a sharp stop from Mane, before Lucas Moura found space at the other end to shoot against the outside of Alisson's right post.

"It was our best game of the season for sure". We are going to win a lot of games.

The lack of depth in Tottenham's squad is clear - particularly the lack of a quality backup striker to Kane - after being the only Premier League team to make no offseason additions.

"I'm really happy and proud of the performance. We will see if we can do so". But only five per cent less and we would probably have lost.

Should both clubs come away with three points, at least one will have their streak stopped the following weekend as they face off against one another at Stamford Bridge on September 29 - after meeting in a midweek Carabao Cup fixture three days before. "We deserved to win".

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Jurgen Klopp's side at Wembley as they continued their 100% start to the Premier League season, but the 26-year-old was withdrawn late in the second half after getting an accidental poke in the eye from Jan Vertonghen.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 didn't see it back". I only saw the situation from around 60 yards. I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest.

"I don't think it makes sense in the moment to play him", he told Sky Sports prior to Saturday's match with Spurs. If we score the goal and it's 2-2 then we talk about character and personality.
