Jurgen Klopp furious over Roberto Firmino eye injury

So far this was our best performance, so I like that development.

Liverpool won their fifth straight game of 2018-19 with a 2-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley on Saturday night.

If they can come through this run of games in good stead, maybe this year will be Liverpool's year after all.

Erik Lamela pulled one back in stoppage time.

Liverpool are now second in the Premier League table behind Chelsea on goal difference and their next match will be against PSG in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, September 18. Liverpool, the unluckiest team in the league last season in ESPN's Luck Index , escaped but a draw would have been harsh as they dominated and looked more risky from the outset.

Clearly the Mancunian has also not been watching Liverpool's early season matches as he would have noticed the impressive form of Daniel Sturridge, who would be a certain starter at many other Premier League sides. It's fantastic that we've won all five games.

"I have no clue what exactly happened", said Klopp.

That was not through a lack of trying, with Salah clearly desperate to get on the scoresheet during a fixture at Wembley Stadium dominated by Jurgen Klopp's side.

Graphic content: Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino's left eye was scratched during Saturday's game (Sunday NZ time) at Tottenham and he could miss the Champions League group-stage opener against Paris Saint-Germain. How we deal with that, I don't know. I'm not the type of person who waits for problems, but I'm old enough to know they will come.

"You need an outstanding performance to win and that's what the boys delivered".

It remains to be seen which players make the squad for the Tottenham game but the bench we saw against Leicester last time out of Mignolet, Sturridge, Keita, Moreno, Lallana, Shaqiri and Matip is a world away.

ALEXANDER-ARNOLD will never forget last season's Champions League triumph against Manchester City.

When Klopp succeeded the sacked Brendan Rodgers, following a sabbatical after his time as Borussia Dortmund coach, Liverpool were 10th in the Premier League and the momentum that nearly carried them to the title in 2014 was lost.
