Berbatov backs Liverpool to see of Spurs on Saturday

Liverpool stretched their unbeaten start to the Premier League to five games after dispatching a sloppy Tottenham side 2-1 at Wembley on Saturday. Mane's shot was diverted onto the post by Jan Vertonghen but Vorm couldn't recover his positioning and Firmino turned the ball into the net.

Firmino was replaced by Jordan Henderson and the image of the incident which did the rounds on social media afterwards shows just how gruesome the poke was.

Meanwhile, the German boss will be praying Salah and Mane are firing on all cylinders when they begin their Champions League venture versus Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

"I'm not sure, but there may be an injury with Roberto, we don't know exactly in the moment", he said. "We will see if we can do so".

"I didn't see it back, I didn't see anything back from the game".

"In the end, I think everyone saw it was very clearly a penalty on Son [Heung-Min] from [Sadio] Mane [in injury time]".

"But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".

"Then today another one, and we need to be ready".

Emergency officials warned residents that the peril had probably not passed, as the storm continued to dump torrential rain. The dead included a mother and baby who were killed when a tree fell on their home in Wilmington , North Carolina.

Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur later today and reliable journalist Dave Maddock believes that Fabinho will return to the bench for Jürgen Klopp's side.

However, if they are to make good on their ambitions to push Manchester City at the top of the table it is imperative they take points from their closest rivals - as they did at Wembley this time round.

Chelsea's period of Premier League dominance continued into the next season where they remarkably won their first nine games of the Premier League season. "We had 85 brilliant minutes". With and without the ball we caused them massive problems. However things went badly wrong for Kevin Keegan's men and a disastrous spell after Christmas meant that they finished sixth.

"For me, Liverpool are one of the best teams in Europe, not only in England".

"That was a tough game".

"We had quite a good session yesterday, couldn't do too much because some of them came off the plane".

"That's why people say this is a "big game". The players did the job and they worked unbelievably hard, and I'm really proud of them".
