The frantic final few minutes after Erik Lamela's late goal for Spurs show there remains work to be done, but the foundation is now there for Liverpool to mount a significant quest for a first Premier League crown. The most important thing is to keep the balance.

"To win titles, you need to be very good defensively, if not the very best".

Firmino wrapped up Liverpool's fifth successive win soon after the interval when the Brazil forward tapped in after more sloppy defending and another Vorm misjudgement. We had in all the games really good moments. We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.

"So I'm really happy about the performance and proud of the performance because the boys came back Wednesday and Thursday, we trained yesterday and then playing our football in that way, that's really nice for a manager". "We were that good it was hard for Tottenham". But only five per cent less and we would have lost.

Neville this week said the Reds' best chance of ending a 29-year wait to be English champions would be enhanced if they "kicked into touch" their European ambitions. "Of course they deserved to win".

Dave Maddock has revealed that the Brazilian will be restored to Liverpool's squad after a "frantic transatlantic dash" delivered Fabinho, Roberto Firmino and Alisson back to England in time to train for the Spurs clash.

"I didn't see it back". I only saw the situation from 60 yards.

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. "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".

Even after Lamela had scored there was still time for Tottenham to launch one last attack and it was during this sequence that Sadio Mane appeared to hack down Son Heung-min as the South Korean was about to shoot. I think we should be talking in a different way now. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again.

"And we concede again in set pieces". Fantastic we won all of them, fantastic we improved during the season.
