Liverpool hold off Spurs to maintain ideal start

Liverpool hold off Spurs to maintain ideal start

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.

The two sides meet in Saturday's early kick-off in what many people are tipping to be Liverpool's first serious test of the season.

"I'm not sure, but there may be an injury with Roberto, we don't know exactly in the moment", said Klopp.

Looking to go one better than their runners-up medals last season, Liverpool kick off a new Champions League campaign at home to French champions Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

"He came from another league playing in a completely different system to us and that takes time". Back when everyone largely played 4-4-2 and there was none of this play-it-out-from-the-back malarkey, Joe Cole was dumped out there a lot and Steven Gerrard was wasted in too many games.

"I'm not sure, but there may be an injury with Roberto, we don't know exactly in the moment", he said.

"If it's late in the season that you see you have a chance to do that or do this and all that stuff".

It will mark the start of an extremely busy period for Klopp's side, with seven matches in 23 days on the horizon, and Klopp admits squad rotation will be required in the coming weeks, although Adam Lallana (groin) and Dejan Lovren (pelvis) remain sidelined. They are one of the best counter-attacking teams in Europe.

A post was also involved in Liverpool's second as Jan Vertonghen slid in to block Mane's low cross, Vorm was unable to gather the rebound and Firmino converted from point-blank range.

But Liverpool's victory on Saturday and their surge to the top of table is about more than the money they have spent. The plan was - and still is - that he will make us better. We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.
