Unlike Spurs' England contingent, Klopp has bedded captain Jordan Henderson slowly back into action, while Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane's early exits in Russian Federation with Egypt and Senegal meant they had a few weeks of pre-season training.

"The performance was better than the result", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said.

Liverpool's impressive close-season in the transfer market threatened to consign Milner to a bit-part role but the former England midfielder appears more vital to their cause than ever. He is an incredibly compact player - very neat and tidy with the ball with an excellent eye for a penetrating pass.

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. We could have scored more and we controlled the game.

The Reds made it five consecutive wins as they continue their impressive start to the Premier League. We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.

"I didn't see it back". "We all knew it after the World Cup, especially after England came that far, they have had no rest", added Klopp.

Firmino was on target for Jurgen Klopp's side at Wembley as they continued their 100% start to the Premier League season, but the 26-year-old was withdrawn late in the second half after getting an accidental poke in the eye from Jan Vertonghen.

'I'm not sure, but there may be an injury with Roberto, we don't know exactly in the moment, ' admitted Klopp. Amusing. I haven't seen it back, I only saw the situation from 60 yards away so I've no clue what exactly happened.

Looking to go one better than their runners-up medals last season, Liverpool kick off a new Champions League campaign at home to French champions Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday. "But we will see".
