Roberto Firmino provides update after horrific eye poke

Virgil van Dijk

Klopp told reporters before Liverpool's game against Spurs (via ESPN).

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the global break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

Lamela's goal from a tight angle was a mere consolation, though, as Spurs slipped to consecutive league defeats for the first time since the final two games of the 2015-16 season, meaning they remain outside the top four. James Milner swept in a cross that Firmino poked into the far corner - however the linesman flagged for offside. Vorm collected the ball, however the Goal Decision System confirmed it had gone over the line.

Firmino, who had been a threat the whole match, doubled the lead for Liverpool in the 54th minute for a comfortable 2-0 after the good work by Mane down the left flank.

On more than one occasion, Mane had an opportunity to pass to Salah but didn't.

Lucas Moura then came free from Joe Gomez and wriggled inside Alexander-Arnold on his way into the area, however his low shot came off the outside of the near post.

Firmino then got his name on the score-sheet, soon after the interval, as the Brazilian tapped-in Liverpool's 2nd, after some more sloppy defending by the hosts.

After the match, Firmino was taken to Moorfield's Eye Hospital in London and there were fears that he could miss Liverpool's first Champions League clash of the season.

The Senegalese forward had Salah to his right and Naby Keita to his right.

Erik Lamela pounced in second-half injury time to cause a few nervous moments within a late Spurs fightback, but Liverpool dominated throughout and should have finished emphatic winners.

Klopp hit back at the former Red Devils skipper by claiming that he did not understand how to concentrate exclusively on one competition when at a club like Liverpool, who are expected to compete on all fronts.
