This mature display was a real statement of intent by Liverpool, who have made their best start since 1990-91 as they chase a first English title since 1989-90.

The Egypt worldwide failed to score for the second game in a row and didn't put his best performances, but that didn't stop Liverpool pulling off an important victory against Tottenham.

Firmino was transported to Moorfields Eye Hospital to be assessed and manager Jurgen Klopp admitted after the game that he didn't know the severity of his forward's injury.

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. I think at the start of the second half we moved players into different options to try to find more solutions in offensive situations and try to score.

He said: "If Saturday we play in the same way - I don't say performance, because the performance was not bad against Watford - but if we do it the same way, rather than take off players, I will be on the phone to say, 'Houston, we have a problem!'"

"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".

"I'm long enough in this business to know that nobody plays a flawless season". But only five per cent less and we would probably have lost.

"We were not really in a competition with Manchester City in the Premier League last season".

"Now we have to prove that and do it again and again".

Chelsea, though, have also recorded a ideal start after Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Cardiff City, allowing them to edge past Liverpool on goal difference at the top of the Premier League. It's still early, five games, fantastic we won all five and improved.

The fixture was supposed to mark the opening of their new £800million stadium in north London but due to construction delays it will be at least late November before their new 62,000-capacity home hosts a match.

Since the three players were put in unison following Salah's arrival from Roma at the start of last season, they have scored 99 goals in their 165 appearances. I am happy with all the players.

"We tried to give Divock and Dom a bit of practice [for the U23s]; they used it, they scored, but it looks like both of them will not be available for tomorrow".

When Gini's looped header found the back of the net against Spurs on Saturday afternoon, it outwardly appeared as little more than the result of a poor headered clearance and an opportunistic finish.
