Speaking ahead of Spurs' game against Liverpool, Pochettino said, "Harry has all the profile of the midfielder - ideal".

The two sides meet in Saturday's early kick-off in what many people are tipping to be Liverpool's first serious test of the season.

Liverpool avenged last season's 4-1 defeat to Spurs at Wembley to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League.

I expect both teams to score as they usually do in this fixture, but I'll have to edge towards Liverpool to win it. I have no clue exactly what happened.

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.

"In some periods they were better and showed more individual quality in moments and they created more chances because they were good".

"We have come here with a game plan and I think the manager and the team got it spot on".

"I don't wait for problems, but I am old enough to know they will come".

"Now with the Nations League, global managers can not rest players because it is a proper competition. But the result is the most important thing and the result is flawless because winning here is so hard", Klopp said.

"I'm not sure if we can do it on Tuesday and then next Saturday [against Southampton] again".

So far this was our best performance, so I like that development. "But we will see".

But when you consider that Spurs possess two of the most highly rated centre-backs in the Premier League in Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld, it doesn't stack up that they have become so vulnerable when defending crosses and set-pieces.

A statement on Liverpool's website said: "A hospital examination confirmed an abrasion of the eye, but there will be no lasting damage".

Up next for the Reds is the start of their new Champions League campaign, with last season's runners-up taking on Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday.

"Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates with club doctor Andy Massey following the positive assessment".
