Roberto Firmino breaks silence after horrific eye injury v Tottenham

Roberto Firmino breaks silence after horrific eye injury v Tottenham

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.

Mane nearly doubled the lead in the 49th minute before Vorm turned his attempt away, and Lucas Moura almost equalised for Tottenham after his shot hit the left side of the net, but Liverpool increased their advantage in the 54th minute on Firmino's simple strike.

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. "The result is the most important thing and the result is flawless. It can be good but how good we don't know". That means Tottenham have the quality to strike back, that's what they did after a corner.

"So I'm really happy about the performance and proud of the performance because the boys came back Wednesday and Thursday, we trained yesterday and then playing our football in that way, that's really nice for a manager".

Spurs suffered back-to-back Premier League defeats after going down 2-1 at Wembley to their title rivals.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri: I've decided our captain
John Terry is Chelsea's most successful captain, leading the Blues to 14 major trophies. Cesc Fabregas is returning to full fitness but won't be ready to play this weekend.


Liverpool and Spurs kick off in the early Saturday game. The first half I think was even and we conceded again from a set piece.

"We have to be 100 per cent in the competition wherever we play - whether it is the Champions League, Premier League, Carabao Cup, FA Cup".

It remains to be seen which players make the squad for the Tottenham game but the bench we saw against Leicester last time out of Mignolet, Sturridge, Keita, Moreno, Lallana, Shaqiri and Matip is a world away. We controlled the game in a way and let me say it was the best game of the season for us, for sure.

"It was a free-kick for Tottenham, right?" "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him". "But like I've said before, I believe in this team and we will try to get better".
