Liverpool's Egyptian midfielder Mohamed Salah celebrates during the English Premier League football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Wembley Stadium in London, on September 15, 2018. But for now, early on in this campaign, Liverpool seems up for the challenge.

After two weeks of an worldwide break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum.

"The best teams go out and win and that's what we have shown today". They are always looking for solutions in the game and play as we do.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted he will not prioritise one competition over another in search for trophies, after comments made by Gary Neville.

Firmino almost set the tone after 45 seconds with a goal that was disallowed when Sadio Mane was ruled to be offside, and though Michel Vorm parried away an attempt by Mohamed Salah after 22 minutes, Liverpool struck first behind Wijnaldum.

"They never had too many clear-cut chances, which is hard to do when you come to Wembley, with Tottenham playing here".

Liverpool sit at the top of the Premier League table on 15 points from five games, having conceded just two goals so far.

"I am long enough now in this business to know no one plays a ideal season - not even [Manchester] City a year ago played a flawless season", he said. Bring your kids in the Champions League?

"For me the performance was better than the result". "Gary should come over and tell me exactly how that would work".

It remains to be seen which players make the squad for the Tottenham game but the bench we saw against Leicester last time out of Mignolet, Sturridge, Keita, Moreno, Lallana, Shaqiri and Matip is a world away.

"A good pre-season should be at least three or four weeks", said Klopp.
