Klopp in the dark over Firmino injury


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

"For me the performance was better than the result". 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. "We will see if we can do so".

There is no doubt that Liverpool have moved in the right direction since that day at the old White Hart Lane with two successive top four finishes in the bag and memorable runs to three Cup finals, including the Europa and Champions League showpiece events.

And Klopp is sure Kane will find his best form, even if he hopes it comes after Saturday. We could have scored more, we controlled the game.

The Reds have won four from four so far this season, but have yet to come up against a team that has seriously challenged them. We are going to win a lot of games.

I had to look at the incident three times, then finally in slow motion to see if there had been contact.

"He has the possibility and the potential of course but now it is up to him and we go again: mentality".

The only cloud hanging over an otherwise successful afternoon in London was an eye injury sustained by Firmino during a 75th-minute clash with Jan Vertonghen that saw Spurs awarded a free-kick.

Liverpool begin their Champions League campaign on Tuesday when Paris Saint-Germain come to Anfield.

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest". I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost.

Speaking to reporters, Klopp said on his new £43million man: "I don't like to compare players but we had similar question about Robbo and Oxlade and I'm not sure if Sadio (Mane) played from the beginning, but I think he had a full pre-season".
