Yet here we were at Wembley with Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Harry Winks doing his best in a first start since February in a massive game against visitors Liverpool, yet to lose this season and about to extend that run on Saturday afternoon, on the left side of a midfield, as ineffectual as you would imagine.

"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again".

"You always try to have your best game, but it is clear with the number of games".

This mature display marked them out as the most likely challengers to champions Manchester City.

After last year's disappointing away record in the Premier League, the German will be thrilled that such a trend has been bucked so early on in the 2018/19 season.

"The performance wasn't great".

His manager, Mauricio Pochettino, is, refreshingly, not afraid to talk his players up (not so long ago he compared Spurs teenager Marcus Edwards to Lionel Messi).

Firmino wrapped up Liverpool's fifth successive win soon after the interval when the Brazil forward tapped in after more sloppy defending and another Vorm misjudgement.

"After that we had pretty good results and I don't think we conceded a lot of goals".

"Yes, we could have scored more". We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn't finish the game off. We controlled the game in a way - let me say, it was the best game of the season for us for sure - especially good in all the games, really good moments, but today we had eighty-five good minutes.

"When you make mistakes of course you will be punished by the quality they have".

"We had quite a good session yesterday, couldn't do too much because some of them came off the plane". A draw was fantastic for us - maybe we did not deserve to win.

Tottenham have made a habit of falling short on the big occasions under Pochettino, who is yet to win a trophy since joining the club.

Jurgen Klopp's side avenged last season's 4-1 thrashing at Tottenham with a large helping hand from their error-prone hosts.

Liverpool FC are now leading the way at the top of the Premier League table as they bid to try and establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the title this season. Since he has come in we have been going in the right direction and now it's about taking the final step and winning silverware.
