Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino says he is "OK" after sustaining an eye injury during Saturday's 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has made a bold claim in the run up to the Spurs' game against Liverpool in stating that midfielder Harry Winks has the potential to be England's Xavi or Andres Iniesta.

Kane, who was the second-highest scorer in the league behind Salah last season, looks in need of a break to rest and recover a tired body.

Erik Lamela grabbed a late consolation for Spurs, who could not avoid a second straight Premier League defeat. They are always looking for solutions in the game and play as we do. "I do not have the personality to wait for problems but I know they will come", Klopp said.

Even after Lamela had scored there was still time for Tottenham to launch one last attack and it was during this sequence that Sadio Mane appeared to hack down Son Heung-min as the South Korean was about to shoot.

"For me the performance was better than the result".

"Tottenham have the quality to strike back and that's what they did off the corner". Bring your kids in the Champions League? "We could have scored more and we controlled the game". "They won yesterday without Neymar and [Kylian] Mbappe so they could rest players in the league, but that's Tuesday".

Liverpool sit at the top of the Premier League table on 15 points from five games, having conceded just two goals so far.

"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again". I don't know exactly at the moment, but it's something with his eye.
