The Premier League title should be a realistic aim, although City are understandably still favourites and Chelsea will harbour renewed title ambition of their own after their flawless start put them top of the table ahead of Liverpool on goal difference. "I don't know what you expect from me, or what you think my answer should be", he said.

Roberto Firmino has offered a positive update after the Liverpool attacker picked up an eye injury during their 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley this afternoon.

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

"We should have finished the game off earlier but didn't".

However, were later relieved when Liverpool released their statement on the matter, "A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage".

'I am sure he will play on Tuesday and he will get plenty of game time.

Erik Lamela pulled a goal back for Tottenham at the death when a Christian Eriksen corner evaded everyone in the six-yard box, allowing the Argentinian to lash the ball home from an improbable angle.

When Klopp succeeded the sacked Brendan Rodgers, following a sabbatical after his time as Borussia Dortmund coach, Liverpool were 10th in the Premier League and the momentum that nearly carried them to the title in 2014 was lost.

Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane missed chances in the 2-1 win at Tottenham.

However, the fixtures are set to come thick and fast from now on, starting with a trip to Wembley for their Premier League clash against Tottenham before they open their Champions League account against Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield next week. But I'm not going to complain. How do you prepare for a game when you don't focus on it? I don't care that he wasn't great [against Liverpool].

"I think Liverpool haven't started the season excellently, but they have done a good job, and out of all the teams out there they've looked the best, and in [Virgil] van Dijk they've got one of the best defenders in the world at the moment". "We were not really in a competition with Man City in the Premier League last season".

"Yes, they were playing against a Liverpool side with a lot of confidence, but Klopp gave his players the freedom to play".

I will say the midfield three of Gini Wijnaldum, Naby Keita and Milner, who easily won the battle in the middle of the park.
