Jurgen Klopp wants forwards to keep going for goal

Jurgen Klopp wants forwards to keep going for goal

Liverpool's first win away at Tottenham in four attempts for Klopp was another sign of the progress made under the German, particularly as they suffered a 4-1 thrashing at Wembley last season. We were confident, we played good football, we created moments, we prepared direction, we played passes in behind, played counter-pressing, so it was just good.

"Salah may have led the way as he went through the 40-goal barrier last season, but he would be the first to confirm that his success was very much a team effort, as Liverpool worked as a wonderful attacking unit in the second half of the season and most opponents couldn't live with them".

"People are always going to look for stuff, especially when you are a big part of the team and someone who is there to get the goals", he told United Kingdom newspapers.

Liverpool v PSG in the Champions League is tomorrow, can Salah, Mane and Firmino overcome Neymar, Mbappe and Cavani?

Can Sarri win Chelsea the Premier League if Hazard keeps scoring for Chelsea, or are Man City and Liverpool too good?

For Salah, a season just a notch below last would still be excellent by most players standards but it looks as though he is falling victim to wanting to maintain his own untouchable highs.

"It was maybe our best against Tottenham in all the years I've been here".

The concern over Harry Kane's form was justified by another quiet afternoon but Tottenham, who were without Dele Alli because of a hamstring problem, under-performed across the pitch. True the club also kept their best players, but it has been proven time and again that teams need to re energise and redo their teams every season- and this wouldn't have been money wasted to invest in a couple of quality players that could have been drafted in and added to the squad.

Sane tapped home Fernandinho's inviting cross inside two minutes before Silva smashed his 50th Premier League goal and Sterling completed the rout.

Spurs were looking to bounce back from losing at Watford prior to the worldwide break, however, his side never really got going against a slick, well oiled Liverpool machine that have won all five of their Premier League matches to date.

"They are two completely different players", Pochettino said.

In the day's other game, Roy Hodgson celebrated the first anniversary of his appointment as Crystal Palace manager with a 1-0 win at Huddersfield Town.

But Zaha questioned the protection he is getting from referees. "I had a feeling it was in straight away but then the referee gave it".
