tottenham vs liverpool

Liverpool continued their bright start to the season in yet another slim victory which would have seen the Red win comfortably after series of misses.

The YNWA side got up with a quick goal from Firmino in the 1st minute but it was ruled offside.

Liverpool kept the tempo of the game even though both were creating chances but the Reds kept showing their qualities on the pitch, creating more chances before Wijnaldum put his teammates in front with a sublime header as they finished 1-nil in the first half.

The second half was boisterous as the fans were motivating the home to side to push for a comeback.

The fluidity of the game continued while James Milner covered the depth of the field: few minutes later, Firmino made his mark by registering his name on the score sheet from the mistake made by Spurs’ second choice goalkeeper Michel Vorm who allowed the ball to pass through his hands.

Spurs man of the match, Lucas Maura was really impressive and energetic as he came close to scoring when he found his way pass Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez, marauding towards the 18-yard box but his shot struck the post.

Never say die home side scored a brilliant goal through Eric Lamela in the very late hour of the game as Klopp’s men breathe again with another win making it five from five.

Liverpool will travel to Paris on Tuesday with the hope of continuing the 100% record.

Opinion: Liverpool should go for this “next Lionel Messi” now that he’s affordable
