Liverpool Spectacularly Lucky Not To Concede Late Penalty Vs Spurs

Firmino Offers Update After Liverpool Star Is Taken To Hospital Following Spurs Win

Lack of investment is catching up with Tottenham after latest defeat

"I think that we made a lot of mistakes and we were punished by a team that [makes it] hard when you concede these chances".

Chasing a first English title since 1990, Liverpool swept to a fifth successive win at the start of the Premier League on Saturday with goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino clinching a 2-1 win at Tottenham.

"The final passes and decision making from Liverpool in the final third against Spurs was ridiculous at times and it meant they made life hard for themselves in the final few minutes".

Erik Lamela scored a consolation goal for the hosts in stoppage time.

"Yet on a day when Tottenham's centre-backs of Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld couldn't cope with the movement of Liverpool's forwards, they were let off the hook by wasteful finishing and poor decision making by Salah, Mane and Firmino".

"The players and staff onboard the club flight back to Liverpool sent the Brazilian a video wishing him well", the team said.

The Reds have had a sublime start to the season under Klopp and have already established themselves as leaders in the Premier League after winning all their games so far. After all the Reds have won five European Cups/Champions Leagues to Manchester United's three.

"I want to say that Liverpool deserved the victory but if you analyse the game, there are some key moments like the goal that we conceded".

Next up for Liverpool FC is their Champions League group stage opener against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night at Anfield.

"It was our best game of the season for sure".

'That's the thing, we're still a bit adapting to the intensity, Hendo needs his full physical strength. "Now we have to do it again and again".

'How we'll deal with those problems I have no idea. "I don't want to put pressure on the team, but anything is possible". This mature display marked them out as the most likely challengers to champions Manchester City.

These are the games that can prove decisive in the race for the title, so it distorts the competition to have them take place when the two managers and sets of players have barely had time to practice a set-piece in the build-up. Also when you lose people look to people on the pitch.
