Liverpool's Brazilian midfielder Roberto Firmino (R) scores their second goal during the English Premier League football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Wembley Stadium in London, on September 15, 2018.

Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs were again out of sorts following their 2-1 loss to Watford before the worldwide break, with substitute Erik Lamela's stoppage-time goal giving the scoreline a very flattering look for the hosts.

Despite seeing his side fail to put the game to bed earlier, manager Jurgen Klopp was delighted the overall display ahead of the huge clash with PSG.

"Tottenham are not really happy at the moment with the result and not with the performance, but because we were that good it was so hard for Tottenham". So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so. "We could have scored more and we controlled the game".

The Reds have won four from four so far this season, but have yet to come up against a team that has seriously challenged them.

But despite the win, the victory was soured by what was a horrific injury suffered by Firmino.

"From my point it is all fine, but I know the situation isn't what some people expected but I can not change that".

A couple of small vessels overturned from the force of the fall that caused high waves, witnesses told authorities. The coastguard later said everyone who had visited the beach on tourist boats had been accounted for.

Liverpool manager Klopp provides Firmino's injury update after horror collision
The 22-year-old underwent surgery in the summer for an ankle injury that saw him missing from the second half of last season. That's too complicated; you have to go into the next game and see who you can choose.

The iPhone XS series can be pre-ordered starting September 21, and iPhone XR from October 19. The new iPhone XR, XS and XS Max comes with one regular nano-SIM card slot.

"It was a free kick for Tottenham, right?"

"Gary should come over and tell me how that exactly works", Klopp told a press conference. "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has confirmed there is no long-term damage to his eye after a horrific incident involving Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen.

The Reds play Paris St-Germain in the Champions League at Anfield on Tuesday.

Thankfully, Firmino had some good news for fans after being released from hospital with the diagnosis being an abrasion of the left eye.

'Firmino travelled back to Merseyside separately from his teammates with club doctor Andy Massey following the positive assessment.
