‘That was always clear!’ - Klopp on Liverpool not relying on Salah's goals

‘That was always clear!’ - Klopp on Liverpool not relying on Salah's goals

After two weeks of an worldwide break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum.

Fantastic we won all of them, fantastic we improved during the season.

The worldwide break was long and arduous but with Premier League action set to resume today, supporters will be able to feast their eyes on the most exciting game of the week at Wembley.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted he will not prioritise one competition over another in search for trophies, after comments made by Gary Neville.

Erik Lamela pounced in second-half injury time to cause a few nervous moments within a late Spurs fightback, but Liverpool dominated throughout and should have finished emphatic winners.

There is no doubt that Liverpool have moved in the right direction since that day at the old White Hart Lane with two successive top four finishes in the bag and memorable runs to three Cup finals, including the Europa and Champions League showpiece events.

The Reds have had a sublime start to the season under Klopp and have already established themselves as leaders in the Premier League after winning all their games so far.

Crime Stats: Western Cape police stations have highest murder rate
Murders of women spiked by 11% with 2930 murders reported in 2017-2018 compared with 2639 in the previous period. Glencoe was little safer with five murders, two down from previous year, and 12 stocktheft cases.

"If he wants to take it, take it ... but of course his potential is to be a very, very good player for England and Tottenham, first for Tottenham and then if England believe that he can help them for England too", the Spurs manager added.

"After that we had pretty good results and I don't think we conceded a lot of goals".

The Brazilian forward, who ended up scoring the deciding goal from a yard out, told the club's medical staff that he could not go on after being poked in the eye by Spurs defender Jan Verthongen in the 74th minute.

"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again".

There was plenty for Klopp to be happy about, despite the Reds' lack of clinical finishing, as he now looks ahead to Tuesday's Champions League group stage tie against PSG.

Klopp was cautious after the incident but refused to blame Vertonghen as he said he did not see the incident from his spot on the touchline.
