Liverpool deliver positive update on Firmino recovery

Firmino Offers Update After Liverpool Star Is Taken To Hospital Following Spurs Win

Lack of investment is catching up with Tottenham after latest defeat

There is no doubt that Liverpool are playing their best football in all facets of the game, and confidence is justifiably sky high at Anfield as they look to end a trophy drought that will reach seven years, and counting.

The Champions League showdown with the French champions will offer another gauge of Liverpool's growing strength, but Klopp sees a long road ahead. Bring your kids in the Champions League? Maurizio Sarri even went ahead in the press conference and said that Hazard is the best player in Europe now.

In a post-match media conference, Pochettino was asked if much of his squad returning from the World Cup late has had an impact on his side's performances, but he replied: "I don't want now to complain about the World Cup".

Firmino was transported to Moorfields Eye Hospital to be assessed and manager Jurgen Klopp admitted after the game that he didn't know the severity of his forward's injury.

"I have no clue what exactly happened, but it's something with the eye and, at the moment, it's not comfortable for him". "Thank you for all the support and see you soon".

This Liverpool team is now unrecognisable, both in personnel and style, from when Klopp walked through the door.

The 24-year old was outstanding in Saturday's 3-0 win over Fulham, showcasing his superb control, passing and vision and prompting praise from Guardiola who says the player's slight build doesn't reduce his effectiveness in the middle.

The Reds have won all four of their games thus far, conceding just once, which is the best defensive record in the division.

Liverpool's growing maturity under Klopp led to them being touted as the team most likely to challenge Manchester City - and their vast transfer outlay means this must be an expectation this season.

"You need an outstanding performance to win and that's what the boys delivered. Now we have to do it again and again". We controlled the game in a way and let me say it was the best game of the season for us, for sure.

Liverpool are expected to be genuine title challengers to Manchester City this season and people said the same about Tottenham after a landmark win at Manchester United.
