Pochettino not anxious by Spurs slump

Yellow Sports Brian Jeeves reporting from Wembley Stadium

"I think that we made a lot of mistakes and we were punished by a team that [makes it] hard when you concede these chances".

Roberto Firmino has offered a positive update after the Liverpool attacker picked up an eye injury during their 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley this afternoon. So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so. "It's still early, five games".

Adding to the good news was confirmation Firmino's eye injury is not as serious as initially feared - an examination revealed an abrasion without lasting damage - and the Brazilian is in contention to face Paris Saint-Germain tomorrow.

Klopp's side made it five successive victories as goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino rewarded its dominant display at Wembley on Saturday.

"I am happy with all the players", Pochettino said.

But they have since lost back-to-back league games against Watford and Liverpool and Pochettino, whose side kick off their Champions League campaign against Inter Milan on Tuesday, thinks they are way off being challengers.

"I am not going to stand here and say "oh my God, we have to play all these teams".

Erik Lamela pulled a goal back for Tottenham at the death when a Christian Eriksen corner evaded everyone in the six-yard box, allowing the Argentinian to lash the ball home from an improbable angle.

Floodwaters were rising near businesses in LaGrange, N.C., as Tropical Storm Florence pounded the area, September 15, 2018. Along the Lumber River in Lumberton , workers used heavy machinery to dump extra sand on a railbed prone to flooding.

But anything less than three points would have been cruel on Liverpool, which punished mistakes from Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm and the rest of his error-prone team.

'That's the thing, we're still a bit adapting to the intensity, Hendo needs his full physical strength.

Tottenham are supposed to be competing with Liverpool for the title, and even finished above the Reds last season.

What did you make of the game?

Mohamed Salah is bullish about Liverpool's chances in the Champions League this season and has backed his team to go all the way to the final again and win this time around. I am not going to put the finger on some player.

Liverpool could not have started the season any better with a maximum haul in these first five league games - they did not reach 15 points until 28 October last season.

"I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost".
