Too much asked of tired World Cup stars for Jurgen Klopp

Too much asked of tired World Cup stars for Jurgen Klopp

The Reds earned a 2-1 win at Wembley against Tottenham, while Maurizio Sarri's side came from behind to thump Cardiff City 4-1 at Stamford Bridge, thanks to an Eden Hazard hat-trick.

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.

Erik Lamela grabbed what turned out to be a consolation goal for Spurs in added time.

Although Jurgen Klopp will be curious as to why his side couldn't convert more of the many chances they created, the closing five minutes of today's game very almost undone what was a landmark win for Klopp's side.

Despite Liverpool sitting top of the Premier League, Klopp said it is not possible for the five-time European Cup winners to put off their Champions League campaign, which begins on Tuesday when Paris Saint-Germain visit Anfield. We need to improve a lot. We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off.

The Merseyside outfit are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after they finished in fourth place and without a trophy last term.

Liverpool's performances early in the 2018-19 season are reminiscent of Barcelona at their very best, according to club legend Graeme Souness.

Hurricane Florence brought a storm surge of some 3 meters (10 feet) as it began battering the USA east coast early on Friday. More than 722,000 homes and businesses were without power in North and SC early on Friday, utility officials said.

Liverpool released a statement on Saturday evening confirming Firmino was discharged from a London hospital after receiving positive news on the eye injury.

However, the goal seemed to have come too late in the match as Liverpool held on to win the match 2-1.

The Brazilian was forced off in the 74th minute following a battle with Jan Vertonghen and then sent for further examination. Three points. Now we have to go again.

"It was a free kick for Tottenham, right?"

"Now we won a few games, so that's very good", said Klopp.

The Reds' next assignment is a Champions League clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday, with both clubs boasting flawless records to date this season. "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him". At this stage, the No.9 has not been ruled out.
