Liverpool's goals came from Georginio Wijnaldum - his first away from home in the Premier League - and Roberto Firmino, who went off with an eye injury but later confirmed it was not serious.

Liverpool are off to their best start since 1990-91 as they chase a first English title since 1989-90.

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.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino urged his players to be aggressive against Liverpool, saying his team had a problem if they "crash" again. You always know our attacking threat will hurt the opposition and score goals, so for us as a team it's about defending properly and that's everyone from the goalkeeper to the striker.

"That was very, very good", he told Sky Sports .

"I want to say that Liverpool deserved the victory but if you analyse the game, there are some key moments like the goal that we conceded. Result is ideal and winning here is so hard, unbelievably difficult", Klopp said. Because we came here and tried to do it, you need a really outstanding performance - and that was what the boys delivered today. Over 85 minutes we were really dominant.

"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again".

"Actually I don't like to compare players but we had similar players and questions about Robbo (Andrew Robertson) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain", he said.

And now, with Henderson back on the bench, Klopp has given his reason for the decision, admitting their is an eye on the start of Liverpool's Champions League campaign. It's fantastic we won all of them, it's fantastic we improved and this today was by far our best performance of the season, so I like that development.

The incident left Liverpool fans fearing Firmino would be set for a spell on the sidelines, with Jurgen Klopp's side facing PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest".
