Tottenham 1 Liverpool 2: Klopp hails Wembley win as best display yet

Goals from Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino gave the Anfield club the points, meaning that they have maintained their ideal start to the season.

"You need an outstanding performance to win and that's what the boys delivered". A lot of people watch our games when we play Champions League and that's our job that we do the best we can do in all these games.

"Let me say, it was the best game of the season for us for sure". We had in all the games really good moments.

Michel Form failed to clear James Milner's corner and the ball was headed back towards goal by Wijnaldum.

The midfielder made his professional debut in 2015 and his global debut last October before displaying impressive performances against Real Madrid in the Champions League. "We will see if we can do so".

So there has to be an acceptance that it is fairly pointless to stick even the very best central midfielders out there.


Should both clubs come away with three points, at least one will have their streak stopped the following weekend as they face off against one another at Stamford Bridge on September 29 - after meeting in a midweek Carabao Cup fixture three days before.

The forward went to a London hospital in England after the clash with Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen in the 75th minute of Liverpool's 2-1 victory at Wembley in the English Premier League.

'I didn't see it back. I only saw the situation from 60 yards.

"A good pre-season should be at least three or four weeks", said Klopp. "It's something to do with the eye and for sure it's uncomfortable for him", Klopp said.

Klopp hit back at the former Red Devils skipper by claiming that he did not understand how to concentrate exclusively on one competition when at a club like Liverpool, who are expected to compete on all fronts.

"Now we're talking about character and personality". 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.
