Berbatov backs Liverpool to see of Spurs on Saturday

Virgil van Dijk Harry Kane

It was the first away Premier League goal for Wijnaldum and it was confirmed by goal-line technology, with referee Michael Oliver pointing to his wrist amid objections by Tottenham players. "It's still early, five games".

After two weeks of an global break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum.

The victory underlines Liverpool's billing as the most likely challengers to reigning champions Manchester City this term, but having started the season with three wins, Spurs are now a team searching for answers. We could have scored more, we controlled the game.

Jurgen Klopp described Liverpool's performance in the 2-1 win at Tottenham as their best so far in a flawless start to the season.

Liverpool avenged last season's 4-1 defeat to Spurs at Wembley to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League.

Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino saw the Reds muster a 2-1 win at Wembley, with Salah on the periphery in the first half before showing glimpses of his risky self as the game wore on.

Critics will point to the fact that all three of this big finals were lost but if anyone needs proof of the improvement at the club under the former Dortmund manager, then all they need to do is look back at the team sheet from that first match in charge back in 2015. "We will see if we can do so".

"I don't have the personality that waits for problems, but I'm also old enough to know that they will come. I just felt Liverpool wanted to come to an agreement quickly", he told the Telegraph.

"Tottenham are not really happy at the moment with the result and not with the performance, but because we were that good it was so hard for Tottenham".

But when you consider that Spurs possess two of the most highly rated centre-backs in the Premier League in Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, it doesn't stack up that they have become so vulnerable when defending crosses and set-pieces.

"The issue will be monitored and treated by Liverpool's medical staff at Melwood before any decision is made on whether Firmino will be able to figure in Tuesday evening's Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield". 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.
