Roberto Firmino: Liverpool striker 'OK' after eye 'scare'

Share

Kane has been a constant scourge of Liverpool, scoring five times in seven appearances against the Reds, including twice in a 4-1 thrashing at Wembley last season.

Liverpool have now opened a league season with five straight wins for the first time since the 1990-91 campaign.

Liverpool dominated the second half v Spurs, and Firmino scored to ensure Klopp the victory and go top of the Premier League 2018/19 table.

Klopp was cautious after the incident but refused to blame Vertonghen as he said he did not see the incident from his spot on the touchline.

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.

"In some periods they were better and showed more individual quality in moments and they created more chances because they were good".

The global 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.
