Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool - Football Match Report

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.

"That's not to say that for one second it's easy, but we knew that before".

Furthermore, Salah has lifted the lid on the relationship he has with manager Jurgen Klopp.

Tottenham's Premier League clash with Liverpool is being billed as Harry Kane versus Mohamed Salah, but Mauricio Pochettino says they are too different to compare. After all the Reds have won five European Cups/Champions Leagues to Manchester United's three.

So far this was our best performance, so I like that development.

But they have since lost back-to-back league games against Watford and Liverpool and Pochettino, whose side kick off their Champions League campaign against Inter Milan on Tuesday, thinks they are way off being challengers.

"We've won a few games and that's good, very good, but it doesn't change anything", Klopp said after Saturday's victory.

But the final game before the global break saw them lose their 100 per cent record with a 2-1 defeat at Watford.

"Liverpool have a great manager and a great coaching staff, unbelievable players".

"We need to do the right things to get us into that position, to give us that chance".

So can Liverpool win the title?

"From my first day at the club, he treated me like a friend", he said.

Tottenham managed only three shots on target to Liverpool's 10, including Erik Lamela's angled strike in stoppage time.

"How we'll deal with those problems I have no idea".

Danny Rose - 5 - Much like Trippier, the two full-backs had a busy afternoon in trying to keep Liverpool's attacking trident quiet, though they proved too hot to handle.

"It's something with his eye, we will see".

"I think Liverpool haven't started the season excellently, but they have done a good job, and out of all the teams out there they've looked the best, and in [Virgil] van Dijk they've got one of the best defenders in the world at the moment".

Ibrahimovic scored 62 of his goals for Sweden with the rest coming while playing for Malmo FF, Ajax, Juventus, Inter Milan, Barcelona, AC Milan, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United and now the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer.
