Liverpool exploits Tottenham's World Cup fatigue for 5th win

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.

The visitors continued to dominate the game and should have broken the deadlock in the 21st minute after Mohammed Salah found himself one-on-one with Michel Vorm, in goal in the absence of injured Hugo Lloris.

Firmino, who scored his team's second goal at the start of the second half against Tottenham, had to travel back to Liverpool separately from his teammates.

Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho have since left Liverpool, too - Coutinho's sale raised in the region of £142m - while Jordan Henderson started this game on the bench, with Klopp selecting £52.75m summer purchase Naby Keita ahead of his captain.

"I don't want to complain about the World Cup", Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said.

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.

The Dutchman flapped at the corner that led to Liverpool's opener. Vorm tried to claw it onto the bar, but goal-line technology ruled it crossed the line in the 39th minute.

Danny Higginbotham believes that Saturday's clash with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley will suit Liverpool FC.

Four wins from four in the opening stretch of the season spoke well of Liverpool's ambitions without them ever quite hitting top gear, but the relative ease with which they dispatched Spurs counts as a statement.

"They deserved the victory, but there were some key moments", said Pochettino. We are going to win a lot of games. "I completely trust my squad".

Meanwhile, the German boss will be praying Salah and Mane are firing on all cylinders when they begin their Champions League venture versus Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.
