Relentless Liverpool sweep aside Tottenham to stay top

Always when you lose, the players that are not on the pitch are the best, and that is the most unfair situation you can translate.

"With all good results, of course you have momentum".

"Michel was involved and the team, which is responsible, and I am responsible". However, it was Spurs that got the final goal of the day via Lamela, who scored three minutes into added time with a shot from close range.

"The boys stuck to our plan today and it was really good - everybody worked so hard in what was a good performance".

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.

Liverpool took control of the game from the word go and scored as early as the first minute of the match through Roberto Firmino, although it was ruled out for offside.

The plan was - and still is - that he will make us better.

The lack of depth in Tottenham's squad is clear - particularly the lack of a quality backup striker to Kane - after being the only Premier League team to make no offseason additions. The first half I think was even and we conceded again from a set piece.

"We should be talking in a different way now because if it was given, it's 2-2 if we score the goal". 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.

Despite his frustrations, Pochettino remains upbeat and says he was happy with his side's attitude, having previously criticised their lack of aggression against Watford. "Result is ideal and winning here is so hard, unbelievably difficult", Klopp said. I am not anxious, I promise you.

"It is only the job to do sometimes because we have players that work together that much longer". I've not changed my feeling from one or two months ago. How we deal with that, I don't know.

"If Chelsea did this, or Arsenal, I am sure it would be the same, people saying they must win. Of course they deserved to win". "If not, you always pay in football".

United hit Watford with a one-two halfway through the first half with goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling, whose left-foot volley would have done any forward proud.

After suffering four defeats against their top six rivals last season, including a 4-1 thrashing at Tottenham, this was exactly the kind of composed performance Klopp wanted to see.
