Liverpool have got off to a flying start in the Premier League this season by winning all four of their matches.

Liverpool's journey to the Champions League final last term was littered with frenetic and physical performances at Anfield that proved too much for their opponents to handle. The Reds made an incredible run to the Champions League final past year but lost to Real Madrid.

Liverpool beat Spurs 2-1 on Saturday as they won their fifth consecutive game to continue a flawless start to their Premier League campaign.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, who is in some doubt due to an eye injury, have led the way for Liverpool, while Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani make up a unsafe PSG attack.

"I have no clue what exactly happened, but it's something with the eye and, at the moment, it's not comfortable for him".

"The performance was better than the result and the result is ideal", he said.

Klopp said: 'There was no chance yesterday (Monday).


"I came back later than everybody else so I can't expect to come straight back in", he told a news conference.

Liverpool held on to win 2-1 and earn all three points but Spurs will consider themselves fortunate not to have conceded more. We only had one session this morning with Bobby but it was time you have to show faith in your squad, it was nice to see Daniel tonight and he paid it back 100 percent.

As a celebration, Firmino put his hand over his left eye - which was scratched at Tottenham on Saturday and had put his participation in the game in doubt.

Klopp went on to say: "I love my players, all of them, I wouldn't change them but I watched Paris, I watched them last year and I watched them this year, and it is impressive. I know we are quite good but we have to respect them without getting afraid of them".

"We know Liverpool is a big game against a team who have been one of the best this season", Eriksen said.

Liverpool open their Champions League campaign with a home clash against Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain.

Spurs were looking to bounce back from losing at Watford prior to the worldwide break, however, his side never really got going against a slick, well oiled Liverpool machine that have won all five of their Premier League matches to date.
