Roberto Firmino and his wife post eye injury update after Spurs win

Liverpool scented blood and doubled their lead in the 54th minute as Tottenham fell apart at the back. "Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work. We don't play Champions League or what?" said the German, whose side now top the table with a 100 per cent record after four matches and are widely seen as the main challengers to defending champions Manchester City.

"Winning here is so hard, so unbelievably hard, not that I would never expect that only because we came here and tried to our bit because you need the performance that the boys delivered today". How we'll deal with that I have no idea.

However, for two teams to manage it is unheard of - this is first season in Premier League history where a pair of clubs managed ideal starts through five games.

"If you compete and they were better, you say congratulations, but I think we can not compare".

Klopp was cautious after the incident but refused to blame Vertonghen as he said he did not see the incident from his spot on the touchline.

"Today, we had 85 brilliant minutes and then unfortunately we didn't finish the game off".

Despite Liverpool sitting top of the Premier League, Klopp said it is not possible for the five-time European Cup winners to put off their Champions League campaign, which begins on Tuesday when Paris Saint-Germain visit Anfield.

The Reds faced their biggest test of the season against Tottenham at Wembley and Jurgen Klopp's side passed with flying colours.

"Actually I don't like to compare players but we had similar players and questions about Robbo (Andrew Robertson) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain", he said.

Liverpool are scheduled to play seven games in the next 23 days starting with the weekend's trip to Wembley on Saturday. We get so much information, we can see how the players react in different situations.

"This type of game shows you that we need to improve if we want to contend for the title". So far this was our best performance, so I like that development.

"We used the players who had the longest preseason, apart from Bobby [Roberto Firmino] who came pretty late".

"But it's something with the eye and for sure in the moment it's not comfortable for him".
