Too much asked of tired World Cup stars for Jurgen Klopp

The Reds ran out 2-1 winners over Tottenham at Wembley during Saturday's early kick-off.

It was the first away goal that Wijnaldum has scored for Liverpool in the Premier League.

Erik Lamela grabbed a goal with minutes to spare to set up a frenetic ending - where Spurs could feel aggrieved after not being awarded a penalty with seconds to go.

Winners of their first five league games for the first time since 1990, Liverpool returned from the global break to blank a lethargic Tottenham side that have failed to capitalise on the emotion of their 3-0 win at Manchester United on August 27.

The visitors continued to dominate the game and should have broken the deadlock in the 21st minute after Mohammed Salah found himself one-on-one with Michel Vorm, in goal in the absence of injured Hugo Lloris.

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.

Most of those criticisms - largely made by men - were valid, but they chose to ignore Williams' experience as a black woman. That, of course, was the catalyst for the Williams controversy as she was losing to Naomi Osaka in the US Open final.

"We ask too much from the players, we constantly want them ready and if they are not we are not happy".

"I am long enough now in this business to know no one plays a flawless season - not even [Manchester] City previous year played a ideal season", he said.

Against Liverpool, he was substituted in the 73rd minute for Son, the South Korean making his first return since winning the recent Asian Games.

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.

Liverpool released a statement on Saturday evening confirming Firmino was discharged from a London hospital after receiving positive news on the eye injury. I don't know exactly at the moment, but it's something with his eye.

It was just the result that Jurgen Klopp was looking for with a meeting against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League to come. "We have to think about the game tomorrow, then we see who we can choose for the next game". At this stage, the No.9 has not been ruled out.
