Roberto Firmino breaks silence after horrific eye injury v Tottenham

Roberto Firmino breaks silence after horrific eye injury v Tottenham

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino felt his team merited a stoppage-time penalty in the 2-1 loss to Liverpool.

Son Heung-min is back and on the bench, alongside Paulo Gazzaniga, Davinson Sanchez, Serge Aurier, Ben Davies, Victor Wanyama and Erik Lamela.

"It is easy to criticise the performance because we lost the game and conceded many chances, but the circumstances were the same when we beat Manchester United", he said.

And it gave the Reds the lead in their most important match of the season so far.

"If you compete and they were better, you say congratulations, but I think we can not compare". Watford was Watford, Liverpool you can win or lose, and I am not saying anything about attitude.

'If we're at a football club as three midfielders and have a good season, reach the final of the Champions League, and he buys two midfield players and tries to buy a third one, I think the writing's on the wall for someone.

"Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to score again because the game was finishing".

"I didn't see it back, I didn't see anything back from the game". A win for Spurs could take them top temporarily at least, a win for the reds will keep us on top.

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.

'The issue will be monitored and treated by Liverpool's medical staff at Melwood before any decision is made on whether Firmino will be able to figure in Tuesday evening's Champions League encounter with Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield. We controlled the game in a way and let me say it was the best game of the season for us, for sure.

"It was a free kick for Tottenham, right?"

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. "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".
