Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool

Share

Firmino was suddenly deemed a doubt for Liverpool's Champions League group opener after being forced out of Saturday's victory over Spurs with an eye injury.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino scored either side of half-time to put Liverpool 2-0 ahead at Wembley.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has made a bold claim in the run up to the Spurs' game against Liverpool in stating that midfielder Harry Winks has the potential to be England's Xavi or Andres Iniesta.

"Tottenham are not really happy at the moment with the result and not with the performance, but because we were that good it was so hard for Tottenham".

"He has the possibility and the potential of course but now it is up to him and we go again: mentality". "We could have scored more and we controlled the game".

Time will tell if Liverpool are good enough to win a major trophy this season but there is no doubt this squad is improving and looking stronger than it has done for many years.

Firmino found the back of the net very early in the game, but his effort was ruled out for offside. "We all knew it after the World Cup, especially after England came that far, they have had no rest", added Klopp.

However, the goal seemed to have come too late in the match as Liverpool held on to win the match 2-1.

"We have, I'm not sure, but maybe an injury with Roberto".

"It was a free-kick for Tottenham, right?"

Thankfully, Firmino had some good news for fans after being released from hospital with the diagnosis being an abrasion of the left eye.

"Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates with club doctor Andy Massey following the positive assessment".
