Relentless Liverpool sweep aside Tottenham to stay top

Gareth Bale’s wondergoal helped Real beat Liverpool in the Champions League final last season. Neville suggested that the competition distracted the club from the Premier League

Gareth Bale’s wondergoal helped Real beat Liverpool in the Champions League final last season. Neville suggested that the competition distracted the club from the Premier League

Henderson believes Liverpool's defensive improvement has been key to their good early season form, with Klopp's side conceding just once in their four league games this term.

The Reds play Paris St-Germain in the Champions League at Anfield on Tuesday.

"We won the game and if we win at Tottenham it's a big result".

Klopp hit back at the former Red Devils skipper by claiming that he did not understand how to concentrate exclusively on one competition when at a club like Liverpool, who are expected to compete on all fronts.

By neutralising Spurs with consummate ease at Wembley on Saturday, Liverpool's moment of truth came and went as they extended their 100 per cent winning record to five games, matching Chelsea's 15 points at the top of the table.

For Tottenham, this was a dispiriting second successive defeat that served as a major blow to their own title ambitions.

As it were, Spurs' tactic certainly didn't pay off, with Mauricio Pochettino's side really struggling to deal with Liverpool in the second half.

But instead Tottenham nearly fell behind after less than 60 seconds.

Forecasters say the center of the eye of Hurricane Florence is about to make landfall near Wrightsville, North Carolina . Screaming winds bent trees and raindrops flew sideways as Florence's leading edge battered the Carolina coast Thursday.

On a few occasions, the Senegalese attacker snubbed passing to Salah who bagged 32 top flight goals last season, and has weighed in with two goals this campaign.

"Today, we had 85 brilliant minutes and then unfortunately we didn't finish the game off". It was punched to Dier, whose weak header presented Wijnaldum with the opportunity to nod high into the net.

Spurs looked to get back in to the game as a threatening Harry Kane was dispossessed inside the box by Alexander-Arnold before Alisson stopped Christian Eriksen's free-kick after being brought down by Sadio Mane.

The Dutchman flapped at the corner that led to Liverpool's opener.

"It was a very good performance, maybe our best against Tottenham".

Vorm, wrong-footed by Vertonghen's intervention, was prone on the turf as the ball rolled through his out-stretched arms to Firmino, who couldn't miss from on the goal-line.

Lamela lashed home in the final moments, putting a flattering gloss on a scoreline that didn't reflect Liverpool's dominance.
