Liverpool keep flawless start to Premier League season, hand Tottenham another loss

Liverpool keep flawless start to Premier League season, hand Tottenham another loss

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.

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

Chelsea, though, have also recorded a ideal start after Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Cardiff City, allowing them to edge past Liverpool on goal difference at the top of the Premier League.

"We won the game and if we win at Tottenham it's a big result".

Neville this week said the Reds' best chance of ending a 29-year wait to be English champions would be enhanced if they "kicked into touch" their European ambitions.

While Kane collected the Golden Boot in Russian Federation, the six goals came in his first three games and that was followed by a three-match barren run. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again. "But the result is the most important thing and the result is flawless because winning here is so hard", Klopp said.

"To win titles, you need to be very good defensively, if not the very best". We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.

Gary Neville adamant Jurgen Klopp agrees with him despite Liverpool manager's retort
Speaking to The Times , Neville had said: "The Champions League - if I was Liverpool , I would kick it into touch". The Champions League finalists brought in Alisson, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita .

The Spurs chief continued: "First of all, I want to say they deserved their victory. Playing our football in that way that's really nice for a manager".

Tottenham have lost consecutive Premier League games for the first time since 2016, puncturing the optimism engendered by three successive wins to start the campaign.

The Merseyside outfit are the hot favourites to challenge City for the title and they've started the season strongly, winning all four games so far and conceding just once.

Although Jurgen Klopp will be curious as to why his side couldn't convert more of the many chances they created, the closing five minutes of today's game very almost undone what was a landmark win for Klopp's side.

"Gary should come over and tell me how that exactly works", Klopp told a press conference.

"There is no point going through this season saying, "come on, come on, we have to win something, we have to win something".
