Since that calamitous defeat by Spurs a year ago, Juergen Klopp's side boast the best defensive record in the league, with more clean sheets than any other team.

In what is already shaping up to be a critical section of Liverpool's season, the Reds beat Tottenham Hotspur in London 1-2 to restart the Premier League after the global break.

Erik Lamela grabbed a late consolation for Spurs, who could not avoid a second straight Premier League defeat.

"For me the performance was better than the result. Result is ideal and winning here is so hard, unbelievably difficult", Klopp said. "You need an outstanding performance to win and that's what the boys delivered today".

"Yes, we could have scored more".

Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino: What I blame for our defeat to Liverpool
Lamela lashed home in the final moments, putting a flattering gloss on a scoreline that didn't reflect Liverpool's dominance. Sure you will be punished for the team and quality they have on the pitch.

"You always try to have your best game, but it is clear with the number of games". But we all have our 20 minutes.

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. "Hopefully we can go there and put on a big performance and come back with the win".

"Today I think the attitude was very good".

Tottenham, meanwhile, lost their first game of the new campaign last time out when they slumped to a disappointing loss to Watford.

He barked "he is not okay at the moment" after the Brazilian forward had to leave the pitch after being poked in the eye by Spurs defender Jan Vertonghen.

The system is already used to warn the public about "dangerous weather, missing children, and other critical situations". Everyone will then receive this message in English: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System".

"I didn't see it back".

"And of course, I am guilty because I saw that, but I can not change that situation".

"Maybe an injury with Roberto, something in his eye, we don't know in this moment".

"I don't have the personality to wait for problems, but I'm old enough to know they will come", Klopp said. If we score the goal and it's 2-2 then we talk about character and personality. When we talk about midfielders, you like to use Spanish midfielders like Xavi and Iniesta. "We don't play Champions League or what?" said the German, whose side now top the table with a 100 per cent record after four matches and are widely seen as the main challengers to defending champions Manchester City.
