It's five out of five for Liverpool as Wijnaldum and Firmino punish sloppy Tottenham to keep Klo

Liverpool beat Tottenham 2-1 to win a fifth straight Premier league game at the start of the season, for the first time since 1990.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said his side deserved their "big result"

The Reds were emphatic than the final scoreline suggests and keeps them top of the Premier League table.

Georginio Wijnaldum scored his first away league goal since joining Liverpool. Goal-line technology was used to confirm the Wijnaldum's header had crossed the line and beat Michel Vorm

The visitors were dorminant during the match and doubled their advantage after 54 minutes with Roberto Firmino's goal.

Liverpool could have scored more, but Naby Keita and Mane missed chances to add to their goal tally.

Erik Lamela pulled a goal back for his side deep into stoppage time and Son Heung-min late penalty claim was turned down after he was brought down by Mane.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said:

"What a game from my boys - that was really, really good," Klopp said. "If we win at Tottenham it's a big result.

"Tottenham are one of the best teams in world football, and to come here and perform like that after the international break... I didn't take that for granted.

"We were defensively good, offensively good, and the performance was better than the result. It was perhaps a bit nervy at the end but no problem. I have nothing to be critical about today. If you win games and you're not 100% with the performance it's still three points - I like that. It's a deserved result."

"I am not disappointed - the game showed how competitive the Premier League is and we played a really good team who started very well.

"In the second half we made mistakes but we were pushing. The goals we conceded came from our own mistakes, but I am calm.

"After we beat Manchester United at Old Trafford I said we still need to improve, and I'm still saying that."

My view: Liverpool are unbeaten after their win at Spurs, they had ten shots on target while Tottenham had three. Liverpool now have the defence they need to win away games, their defence is secured and solid. Spurs were good but Liverpool were just a better side today. Liverpool have not won an English title since 1990, they have never won the Premier League.
