Jurgen Klopp explains Henderson benching against Spurs

Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday as they continued their faultless start to the Premier League season.

Jurgen Klopp's side ended their poor run at Wembley after goals from Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino handed the Reds victory.

Chelsea, though, have also recorded a ideal start after Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Cardiff City, allowing them to edge past Liverpool on goal difference at the top of the Premier League.

"It is only the job to do sometimes because we have players that work together that much longer".

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino urged his players to be aggressive against Liverpool, saying his team had a problem if they "crash" again.

While Kane collected the Golden Boot in Russian Federation, the six goals came in his first three games and that was followed by a three-match barren run. If it was given it's 2-2 if we score the goal. "Today I think the attitude was very good".

"We have had some tough games against them, so I am sure this one won't be any different", he added.

"The performance was better than the result and the result is ideal", he said. I would never expect that, you need a really outstanding performance and that's what the boys delivered. Amusing. I haven't seen it back, I only saw the situation from 60 yards away so I've no clue what exactly happened. Unfortunately, we didn't finish the game off so that means Tottenham has the quality to strike back - which is what they did after a corner.

Liverpool FC will be hoping to claim the three points to maintain their 100 per cent start to the new campaign. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again. Fantastic the improvement we had.

"We will see, and then we play Paris Saint-Germain-they won yesterday without Neymar and Mbappe, so they can obviously rest players in the league".

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? "We deserved to win".
