Pochettino demands Spurs aggression against Liverpool

Pochettino demands Spurs aggression against Liverpool

Liverpool extended their flawless start to the season as goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino ensured the Premier League leaders punished woeful Tottenham with a 2-1 win on Saturday.

Liverpool are off to their best start since 1990-91 as they chase a first English title since 1989-90.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino struck either side of half-time at Wembley to make it five wins in as many games for last season's Champions League runners-up.

Firmino then had his goal with 53 minutes play to all but seal the result, with Erik Lamela netting a late consolation. "But the result is the most important thing and the result is flawless because winning here is so hard", Klopp said. Watford was Watford, Liverpool you can win or lose, and I am not saying anything about attitude.

"To win titles, you need to be very good defensively, if not the very best".

"We won the game and if we win at Tottenham it's a big result".

It's a great sign for Liverpool fans as it was the team's first real test of the season, and now it's time to get ready for a tough stretch.

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

Mauricio Pochettino has defended Michel Vorm, insisting his No. 2 goalkeeper was not at fault for the opening goal in Tottenham's 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool on Sunday. "It's still early, five games". The first half I think was even and we conceded again from a set piece. "We will see if we can do so".

Dave Maddock has revealed that the Brazilian will be restored to Liverpool's squad after a "frantic transatlantic dash" delivered Fabinho, Roberto Firmino and Alisson back to England in time to train for the Spurs clash.

The Reds play Paris St-Germain in the Champions League at Anfield on Tuesday.

Klopp knows issues will arise throughout the long and winding campaign, but that air of positivity reared its head once again. We don't know exactly in the moment.

"It was a free-kick for Tottenham, right?"
