Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has heaped plaudits on his dominant side as they maintained their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season with a 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino scored for Liverpool, while substitute Erik Lamela netted the only goal for the hosts.
The visitors ultimately held on – despite a good shout for a Spurs penalty after Sadio Mane clipped the heels of Son Heung-min – to make it five wins out of five and Klopp was quick to hail his players after the match.
“That was very, very good,” Klopp told reporters after the game.
“It was an intense job to do and the boys did it.
“We deserved to win that game today. Over 85 minutes we were really dominant.
“With and without the ball we caused them massive problems. The things they usually do usually work, but they didn’t today,”
