Roberto Firmino: Liverpool striker 'OK' after eye 'scare'

Roberto Firmino: Liverpool striker 'OK' after eye 'scare'

Liverpool strengthened their hold on top of the Premier League as Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino fired them to a 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

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. "But the result is the most important thing and the result is ideal because winning here is so hard", Klopp said.

Neville, who was an integral part of Sir Alex Ferguson's unparalleled success story at Old Trafford, commented that the Reds need to loosen their focus on continental football if they are to win the league title this year. We could have scored more, we controlled the game.

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

The visitors continued to dominate the game and should have broken the deadlock in the 21st minute after Mohammed Salah found himself one-on-one with Michel Vorm, in goal in the absence of injured Hugo Lloris.

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".

According to previous estimates, about 300,000 troops were set to participate in the maneuvers. " Russia is a peaceful country". On site, Mr Putin praised the "mastery" of the Russian army and its "ability to deal with potential threats".

"Now with the Nations League, global managers can not rest players because it is a proper competition". But only five per cent less and we would probably have lost.

"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". That's why we deserved to win.

The Brazilian was forced off in the 74th minute following a battle with Jan Vertonghen and then sent for further examination.

"I didn't see it back". We get so much information, we can see how the players react in different situations.

There was one, three-second-long example in the first half when he exchanged a series of passes with team-mates, making short runs into space, the move eventually breaking down when left-back Danny Rose failed to find him as he he sprinted towards the left flank. If we score the goal and it's 2-2 then we talk about character and personality.

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

However, former defender Higginbotham seems to think that the game will suit Liverpool FC more than it does Spurs. Three points. Now we have to go again.
