Liverpool extended their flawless start to the Premier League season by claiming a fifth successive league win to beat Tottenham at Wembley and record their best start to a campaign for 28 years.

Liverpool is the early front-runner alongside Chelsea, which has also won five out of five.

After two weeks of an global break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum.

Liverpool, who finished as runners-up in the Champions League last season, were forced to settle with a fourth placed finish in the league last season, which they secured during the final weekend of fixtures. We could have scored more, we controlled the game.

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the worldwide break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino proved enough to give Liverpool the points despite Erik Lamela's injury-time effort for Spurs, who had a late penalty shout waved away.

He said he was guilty and responsible. "Of course, any woman, man, person can make a mistake". It is a massive lesson for everyone.

"In some periods they were better and showed more individual quality in moments and they created more chances because they were good".

"After that we had pretty good results and I don't think we conceded a lot of goals". "We all knew it after the World Cup, especially after England came that far, they have had no rest", added Klopp.

"Now with the Nations League, global managers can not rest players because it is a proper competition. We will see if we can do so".

"From the beginning I told you it's a massive challenge, the toughest season since we started".

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.
