Roberto Firmino: Liverpool striker 'OK' after eye 'scare'

Jurgen Klopp manager of Liverpool during a training session at Melwood Training Ground

Henderson had started in Liverpool's final game before the worldwide break, a 2-1 win over Leicester City which saw the Reds extend their flawless start in the Premier League to four matches.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has analysed his side's performance away against Tottenham Hotspur last season, and insisted that his faith in Dejan Lovren never wavered despite the Croatian's poor performance. "Even (Manchester) City previous year did not play the flawless season".

Goals from Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino sealed an impressive 2-1 win, leaving Liverpool with 15 points from a possible 15.

"Today I think the attitude was very good".

Firmino then had his goal with 53 minutes play to all but seal the result, with Erik Lamela netting a late consolation.

The global break was long and arduous but with Premier League action set to resume today, supporters will be able to feast their eyes on the most exciting game of the week at Wembley.

The Premier League Leaders enjoyed a lot of dominance from the opening minutes of the game with Firmino in the thick of things. "We have seen that we can do it", Klopp said. Now we won a few games, that's good, but it doesn't change anything for us.

Of course, connecting to the Internet on a weekly basis seems to be a small price to pay to play NES games on the Switch. U Deluxe is coming to Switch on January 11, and as the rumour suggested, the package also includes New Super Luigi U .

And Klopp is sure Kane will find his best form, even if he hopes it comes after Saturday.

It is only the third time in their history that they've opened up a top-flight season with five wins on the spin and although it's early days, plenty of fans and pundits believe they're the main contenders to Manchester City for the title.

The only cloud for Klopp was the eye injury that Firmino suffered in a clash with Jan Vertonghen. I don't like the situation.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admitted his team were second best, but felt substitute Heung-Min Son should have been awarded a penalty at the death.

"Maybe an injury with Roberto, something in his eye, we don't know in this moment. We deserved to win".

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

A ideal start through five games is not unheard of in the Premier League as Chelsea themselves have done it four times, though both of Liverpool's previous five-for-five came in the old First Division.
