Mark Lawrenson is tipping Liverpool FC to be held to a draw by Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League clash at Wembley on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino sealed an impressive 2-1 win, leaving Liverpool with 15 points from a possible 15.

Erik Lamela grabbed a late consolation for Spurs, who could not avoid a second straight Premier League defeat.

Chelsea, though, have also recorded a ideal start after Eden Hazard scored a hat-trick in the 4-1 win over Cardiff City, allowing them to edge past Liverpool on goal difference at the top of the Premier League.

"After we win at Old Trafford, we lost at Watford and we were bad", Pochettino said.

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

Liverpool started the game in extremely quick fashion, which resulted in the ball being in the back of the net within the first minute.

"We should be talking in a different way now because if it was given, it's 2-2 if we score the goal. Today I think the attitude was very good". "But the result is the most important thing and the result is flawless because winning here is so hard", Klopp said.

"Winning here is so hard, so unbelievably hard, not that I would never expect that only because we came here and tried to our bit because you need the performance that the boys delivered today. This type of game shows you that we need to improve if we want to contend in the end to win some title".

"I have no clue what exactly happened", said Klopp. Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again. But we all have our 20 minutes.

Henderson believes Liverpool's defensive improvement has been key to their good early season form, with Klopp's side conceding just once in their four league games this term.

"We have had some fantastic players, the likes of Stevie [Gerrard], [Luis] Suarez and [Philippe] Coutinho, but now as a team everybody is right at it and that comes from the manager. Of course they deserved to win".
