Liverpool's Firmino eye gouged by Tottenham defender Vertonghen

Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino says he is "OK" after sustaining an eye injury during Saturday's 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley. But we'll look back on it and we have still got the three points. Now we won a few games, that's good, but it doesn't change anything for us. Throw in 525 minutes from Son Heung-min - brought on to provide energy and impetus from the bench - at the Asian Games and you have a squad that has not exactly had a restful summer.

A totally fair result, but a hugely flattering scoreline. We were out-thought, outfought and outplayed.

"We wanted that, so how could I stand here and say 'oh my God we have to play all these teams.' That's how it is and that's why our owners have brought us all together - to try to do our best and nothing else". Michael Oliver can only give what he sees - referees get just one view at real speed - and he didn't have a clear view or the one that the television camera showed. But only five per cent less and we would probably have lost.

"From the beginning I told you it's a massive challenge, the toughest season since we started.

But the result is the most important thing and the result is flawless because winning here is so hard", Klopp said. We won at Tottenham and that's the only thing I was interested in.

The arrival from Red Bull Leipzig replaced captain Jordan Henderson in a midfield trio and whilst Keita did not perform badly, some fans will still feel that they should be expecting more from a player who the club spent so much money on after a prolonged transfer pursuit.

You know only too well yourselves how you need a proper goalkeeper - it's already three set-piece goals conceded in two games without Lloris.

In the second half, it was once again all Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp's side continued to enjoy more ball possession, but lacked composure to increase their lead.

Canelo stayed on his bike the first time around but this time fought fire-with-fire , planted his feet and stood his ground. Golovkin threw and landed more, according to CompuBox, but Alvarez landed at a significantly higher percentage.

It perhaps is the reason Klopp is now favouring Keita, Wijnaldum and Milner at the moment.

Milner's corner was aimed at Virgil van Dijk, who was being marshalled by Vertonghen. However, he is taking time to adapt despite having started very brightly. We're getting bored of being the almost men! The Reds were lucky with their goals but created enough chances to win the game, long before Lamela scored.

As always at Wembley, it's never a good atmosphere.

You were great when you came on, Erik and that was a fantastic finish.

In fairness, 80,000 was an excellent attendance. It's no problem, it's still early, five games.

"It was our best game of the season for sure". You had a horror day at Wembley past year but recovered from it.
