EPL: Salah speaks on Mane being selfish

Adjust Comment Print

The Reds have started the season in immaculate form, with their victory over Tottenham at Wembley on Saturday simply continuing a ideal beginning to the campaign for Jurgen Klopp's men, who have yet to drop points in the Premier League.

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.

Such was the visitors' dominance, they could have scored half a dozen times, with Mo Salah twice going close and Tottenham's defence always looking vulnerable until Erik Lamela's late strike gave them hope of an unlikely point.

"I'm really happy with the performance, less so with the result".

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.

"Klopp has the squad for it and this is the year that, if you're Klopp, you've got to win a trophy". We could even win both the Champions League and the Premier League.

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

The "world's best defender" Dejan Lovren will need game time when he returns from injury and brilliant youngsters Rhian Brewster, Curtis Jones and Rafael Camacho are also hungry for their first-team bows.

Liverpool pressing high

Liverpool's growing maturity under Klopp led to them being touted as the team most likely to challenge Manchester City - and their vast transfer outlay means this must be an expectation this season. "We were that good it was hard for Tottenham". It was a performance to back up manager Eddie Howe's pre-match assertion that his side, who have won three of their first five games, have closed the gap on the division's top teams. When Spurs came out the same way for the second half, I knew Liverpool would win the game.

The game, however, was overshadowed by the sickening eye injury suffered by Roberto Firmino.

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

"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works".

A stray finger from the Belgian caught Firmino in the eye, causing him to leave the field with 15 minutes remaining at Wembley.

An examination revealed an abrasion without lasting damage after the collision with Jan Vertonghen and the Brazilian playmaker is in contention to face Paris St Germain.

"They will be a really strong side and no I don't think it's the ideal time to play Tottenham".

"As a team we know we have to feed him, but in a team that is losing it is very hard to score goals, even one that keeps creating chances".
