Liverpool exploits Tottenham's World Cup fatigue for 5th win

Liverpool exploits Tottenham's World Cup fatigue for 5th win

Trent Alexander-Arnold felt Liverpool's game plan at Wembley was "spot on" as they deservedly beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1.

However, the goal seemed to have come too late in the match as Liverpool held on to win the match 2-1. The striker did net twice in August for Tottenham, but he hasn't found the net in the last two games for the north London club and his scoring touch evaded him in last Saturday's England loss to Spain.

Speaking to reporters, Klopp said on his new £43million man: "I don't like to compare players but we had similar question about Robbo and Oxlade and I'm not sure if Sadio (Mane) played from the beginning, but I think he had a full pre-season".

Erik Lamela pulled one back in stoppage time.

The midfielder made his professional debut in 2015 and his worldwide debut last October before displaying impressive performances against Real Madrid in the Champions League. It's a challenge to work with a team that arrived a few days before the start of the competition.

When Wijnaldum headed Liverpool ahead in the 39th minute, it was the fifth goal conceded by Spurs in the Premier League this season - all of them headers.

As of 11am local time, Florence was centred about 145 miles south east of Wilmington and its forward movement slowed to 10mph. McMaster urged people in areas under Tuesday's mandatory evacuation order to leave now if they haven't already done so.

The Dutchman flapped at the corner that led to Liverpool's opener.

The second came in the 54th when Mane was able to glide past Trippier.

While competing for the ball, Jan Vertonghen caught the Brazilian with a trailing arm.

"The first four weeks we had the same lineup and we changed one position, but it was to get a good start to create a base". Klopp told reporters before Liverpool's game against Spurs (via ESPN). "I am not anxious I promise you".

The worldwide break was long and arduous but with Premier League action set to resume today, supporters will be able to feast their eyes on the most exciting game of the week at Wembley. I trust completely in my squad, not 100 per cent but 200 per cent.

There are massive games against Paris Saint Germain, Chelsea and Napoli coming up and these two are bound to play a big part in that.
