Liverpool and Chelsea make Premier League history

Liverpool and Chelsea make Premier League history

Chasing a first English title since 1990, Liverpool swept to a fifth successive win at the start of the Premier League on Saturday with goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino clinching a 2-1 win at Tottenham.

A win for Liverpool would make it only the third time in the club's history they've won their opening five games in England's top division.

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.

Liverpool's impressive close-season in the transfer market threatened to consign Milner to a bit-part role but the former England midfielder appears more vital to their cause than ever.

"Winning here is so hard, unbelievably difficult, so I never expect that. I'm sure he'll have that today when he comes on and on Tuesday as well".

Vorm failed to control the rebound after Mane's cross from the right was turned onto the post by Jan Vertonghen, and Firmino collected himself to poke it over the goal line for his second league goal of the season and second in as many games.

"Let me say, it was the best game of the season for us for sure". We don't know exactly in the moment.

He reportedly said he was willing to go ahead with a "USM" deal and drop the C if Canada didn't sign on. NAFTA underpins $1.2 trillion in trade.

The lack of depth in Tottenham's squad is clear - particularly the lack of a quality backup striker to Kane - after being the only Premier League team to make no offseason additions. But then nothing happened anymore.

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

"It's no problem, it's still early, five games".

"Now we have to prove it and do it again, again and again". He is an incredibly compact player - very neat and tidy with the ball with an excellent eye for a penetrating pass.

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 seen that we can do it", Klopp said. I don't know exactly what it means but to focus on one competition can only be if maybe you are already out of the competition almost.

"I don't know what he means with that, to be honest".
