Liverpool manager Klopp provides Firmino's injury update after horror collision

Firmino was transported to Moorfields Eye Hospital to be assessed and manager Jurgen Klopp admitted after the game that he didn't know the severity of his forward's injury.

The 22-year-old underwent surgery in the summer for an ankle injury that saw him missing from the second half of last season.

Chasing a first English title since 1990, Liverpool swept to a fifth successive win at the start of the Premier League season on Saturday with goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino clinching a 2-1 win at Tottenham.

'I am sure he will play on Tuesday and he will get plenty of game time. That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

Virgil Van Dijk has offered his Liverpool FC team-mate Andy Robertson warm words of praise after the full-back was given the captain's armband for Scotland.

"If not, we are not going to take a risk because he missed a lot of games and now we have a lot of games ahead". Tottenham's extra man in midfielder rarely told as Milner commanded central areas in a typically tireless performance, as Jordan Henderson and the still unused Fabinho looked on from the bench.

Manafort agrees to plead guilty after deal with special counsel
It's entirely up to Mueller and his team based on the value of the information they receive from Manafort. Manafort pleaded guilty to conspiracy against the United States and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

It's a great sign for Liverpool fans as it was the team's first real test of the season, and now it's time to get ready for a tough stretch.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes too much demand is placed on global stars who have had barely any rest following the World Cup.

But while Klopp and Liverpool have built and prospered since last October, Spurs have gone backwards because they have stood still.

The reconstruction of White Hart Lane is clearly affecting the club's ability to punch its weight in the transfer market, but the frayed edges are now showing. Sure you will be punished for the team and quality they have on the pitch.

Four wins from four in the opening stretch of the season spoke well of Liverpool's ambitions without them ever quite hitting top gear, but the relative ease with which they dispatched Spurs counts as a statement. But for now, early on in this campaign, Liverpool seems up for the challenge.

They have used their time and money wisely, but the same can not be said for Spurs.
