Jurgen Klopp wants Liverpool forwards to keep going for goal

How Liverpool Can Win Champions League Crown- Salah

How Liverpool Can Win Champions League Crown- Salah

Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday to extend their 100 percent record to start the season as they sit top of the Premier League table with five wins from five.

Erik Lamela pounced in second-half injury time to cause a few nervous moments within a late Spurs fightback, but Liverpool dominated throughout and should have finished emphatic winners.

"I think that we made a lot of mistakes and we were punished by a team that [makes it] hard when you concede these chances".

Mauricio Pochettino may have had the same fears pre-match, hence the three-man midfield, but we were guilty of so many sloppy passes in there and too often not being close enough or getting the wrong side of players.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hit back at Gary Neville by commenting that he does not know what the former Manchester United skipper meant when he suggested that the Reds should sacrifice their Champions League aspirations to win the league title.

Vorm failed to control the rebound after Mane's cross from the right was turned onto the post by Jan Vertonghen, and Firmino collected himself to poke it over the goal line for his second league goal of the season and second in as many games. Today, we had 85 brilliant minutes and then unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.

The lack of depth in Tottenham's squad is clear - particularly the lack of a quality backup striker to Kane - after being the only Premier League team to make no offseason additions.

"I'm really happy and proud of the performance".

'Jordan Henderson, the captain of the football club being left out, how many times do you get to play at Wembley?

"I think the attitude was very good".

That is not the reason we lost and we can not use it as an excuse and hide behind it, in the way other teams did last season! They are always looking for solutions in the game and play as we do. A win for Spurs could take them top temporarily at least, a win for the reds will keep us on top.

The Brazilian global was forced off in the 74th minute after Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen accidentally poked him in the eye and the Telegraph claim Firmino was taken straight to Moorfield Eye Hospital in London to be checked over.

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

"Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that works. It's something to do with the eye and for sure it's uncomfortable for him", Klopp said.

"I don't want now to complain about the World Cup", the Argentine said in his post-match press conference.

Goals from Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino helped them to a 2-1 triumph and only some profligacy in front of goal from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane prevented it from being a cricket score.

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

"Maybe I repeat again but after Manchester United, all the signals from the team were that we were going to crash".

"Last year, for example, we had no chance to focus on one competition because we had to qualify for the Champions League and I don't think that even Gary Neville would have said: "Quarter-finals of the Champions League, let City win".
