Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool

0:55                                            Graeme Souness thinks this is the best Liverpool team since 1990

Georginio Wijnaldum scored his first ever away goal in the Premier League to break the deadlock at Wembley before Roberto Firmino doubled the visitors' lead in the 54th minute.

Firmino then had his goal with 53 minutes play to all but seal the result, with Erik Lamela netting a late consolation.

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are about to enter a crucial test as they play a series of games which could tell us whether or not they are finally ready to make a serious challenge for the Premier League title.

Firmino wrapped up Liverpool's fifth successive win soon after the interval when the Brazil forward tapped in after more sloppy defending and another Vorm misjudgement.

Mauricio Pochettino has warned his Tottenham Hotspur side that they will have a serious problem if they can not rouse themselves when they take on Liverpool at Wembley today. "It's still early, five games".

"I think we should be talking in a different way now - if it was given it's 2-2 - if we score the goal". Tottenham were very erratic at the back and struggled to deal with the pace of the Liverpool attackers. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again.


Neville, who was an integral part of Sir Alex Ferguson's unparalleled success story at Old Trafford, commented that the Reds need to loosen their focus on continental football if they are to win the league title this year. The most important thing is to keep the balance. 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.

"We have had some fantastic players, the likes of Stevie [Gerrard], [Luis] Suarez and [Philippe] Coutinho, but now as a team everybody is right at it and that comes from the manager".

However, they were stunned by Watford in their last game before the global break, a result Pochettino said he saw coming.

Klopp was cautious after the incident but refused to blame Vertonghen as he said he did not see the incident from his spot on the touchline.

Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur later today and reliable journalist Dave Maddock believes that Fabinho will return to the bench for Jürgen Klopp's side.

"There is no point going through this season saying, "come on, come on, we have to win something, we have to win something".
