Roberto Firmino: Liverpool striker 'OK' after eye 'scare'

Roberto Firmino: Liverpool striker 'OK' after eye 'scare'

It is not easy to take the ball.

"If you watch the Watford game again, you see we played so slow, so sloppy, from the beginning".

"With all good results, of course you have momentum".

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

"Michel was involved and the team, which is responsible, and I am responsible". So far this was our best performance, so I like that development. "It is not easy in four seasons to be in the shadow of Lloris".

"The performance wasn't great".

Liverpool blitzed Spurs early, creating two chances in the first three minutes with an opening goal being pulled back for Sadio Mané attempting a touch in an offside position.

"Tottenham have the quality to strike back and that's what they did off the corner".

"Defensively, we have been really solid - that's a big thing", he said.

"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again". You always know our attacking threat will hurt the opposition and score goals, so for us as a team it's about defending properly and that's everyone from the goalkeeper to the striker. Fantastic the improvement we had. We are going to win a lot of games.

Despite his frustrations, Pochettino remains upbeat and says he was happy with his side's attitude, having previously criticised their lack of aggression against Watford. "The result is the most important thing and the result is flawless". I am not anxious, I promise you.

The Liverpool squad has been completely transformed by the spectacle wearing gaffer in the years since and the strength of the subs bench is stark proof of that improvement.

"I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost". From then, the Reds reasserted their dominance, despite a couple of injury stoppages that saw Roberto Firmino leave after an accidental poke in the eye.

"I'm 100% sure - I was never in doubt about Dejan".

"I think they got a bit of luck today because it was a penalty".

"In football always the line between winning and losing is thin, like against Manchester United".

"I'm not anxious. We are going to win a lot of games".

Mane made a good run that caught Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier out of position before sending over a low cross that Vertonghen diverted against his own post.
