Liverpool made it a perfect five wins from five with an excellent 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley to maintain the 100 per cent winning start.
Jurgen Klopp’s side returned to action looking to pick up the winning form produced prior to the ill-timed international break.
A first top-four clash this season presented a tough task, but the Reds delivered a dominant display to claim victory and seal what is now Liverpool’s best ever start to a Premier League campaign.
The travelling Kop were in great numbers and fine voice on return to ‘Anfield South’.
Liverpool were sharp out of the blocks and thought they had the lead after just 45 seconds, but the linesman’s flag denied Roberto Firmino an opener.
It was an intriguing battle and the Reds were dangerous in attack, with the Brazilian particularly superb in his work leading from the front.
Trent Alexander-Arnold made his 50th appearance for the Reds and looked to mark the occasion with a trademark, spectacular free-kick.
Cue scenes of celebration and disbelief in the away section of Wembley!
Klopp’s men thoroughly deserved the half-time lead and the advantage was doubled soon after the restart.
Firmino wasn’t to be denied a second time and grabbed the goal his performance deserved when he tapped in after a scramble from Sadio Mane’s cut-back.
Erik Lamela pulled one back in stoppage time but the Reds saw out a huge fifth straight win to stay sitting pretty top of the Premier League table – never a bad sight even at this early stage!
Klopp and his players knew the significance of the result and shared the moment with the jubilant travelling Kop…
Klopp and his team will enjoy the win before preparing to go again on Tuesday night when the Champions League campaign begins with an exciting clash with Paris Saint Germain at Anfield.
