Liverpool FC owner’s wife reacts to 2-1 win over Tottenham

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. "They won yesterday without Neymar and [Kylian] Mbappe so they could rest players in the league, but that's Tuesday".

When Wijnaldum headed Liverpool ahead in the 39th minute, it was the fifth goal conceded by Spurs in the Premier League this season - all of them headers.

Liverpool are scheduled to play seven games in the next 23 days starting with the weekend's trip to Wembley on Saturday.

"They never had too many clear-cut chances, which is hard to do when you come to Wembley, with Tottenham playing here".

"The performance was better than the result", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said. We have to play against PSG.

And Klopp is sure Kane will find his best form, even if he hopes it comes after Saturday.

"I don't have the personality that waits for problems, but I'm also old enough to know that they will come". So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so.

The victory underlines Liverpool's billing as the most likely challengers to reigning champions Manchester City this term, but having started the season with three wins, Spurs are now a team searching for answers.

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. "But the result is the most important thing and the result is ideal because winning here is so hard", Klopp said. "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".

'A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage, ' a statement read.

Up next for the Reds is the start of their new Champions League campaign, with last season's runners-up taking on Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday.
