Spurs legend Waddle: Liverpool look the business

Liverpool maintained their 100% record in the Premier League by beating Spurs 2-1 earlier today at Wembley.

Jurgen Klopp’s side were the far better team from start to finish, with Spurs performance nowhere near the level we have come to expect from Mauricio Pochettino’s side over recent seasons.

Liverpool took the lead just before half-time from a Gini Wijnaldum header, before the impressive Roberto Firmino tapped home from close range to extend his sides lead in the 54th minute.

Although substitute Erik Lamela pulled one back in injury time for the home side, the Reds held on for a deserved win.

Speaking after the game Spurs legend Chris Waddle admitted that Liverpool were far superior to his former club and insisted with a team this strong Jurgen Klopp really should be expected to end the Anfield outfits much publicised trophy drought this season.

”Liverpool deserved the win, despite the little flurry from Tottenham at the end. Over the 95 minutes the visitors were the better side and could have had four or even five with their effective attacking on the break.’’ Waddle told BBC 5 Live.

”We all thought Liverpool would challenge for the title this season and so far they look the business. They have the Champions League starting and the cup competitions to come so we’ll see how they get on, but it’s a strong start.

”Klopp has the squad for it and this is the year that, if you’re Klopp, you’ve got to win a trophy.”
