Mark Lawrenson reveals his prediction for Tottenham v Liverpool FC

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.

Klopp's side made it five successive victories as goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino rewarded their dominant display at Wembley on Saturday. The frantic final few minutes after Erik Lamela's late goal for Spurs show there remains work to be done, but the foundation is now there for Liverpool to mount a significant quest for a first Premier League crown.

Chelsea, though, have also recorded a flawless 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. It was after we won 7-0 v Maribor.

Mauricio Pochettino has defended Michel Vorm, insisting his No. 2 goalkeeper was not at fault for the opening goal in Tottenham's 2-1 home defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Mane made a good run that caught Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier out of position before sending over a low cross that Vertonghen diverted against his own post.

But Pochettino said after the match: "If you ask me if it was his mistake, I think it wasn't his mistake. But the result is the most important thing and the result is ideal because winning here is so hard", Klopp said.

Now English Publication, The Sun claim that Terry also has an offer from London to become a first-team coach with the Blues. The former England worldwide was reportedly set to join Russian outfit Spartak Moscow, but that move broke down.

He said: "It was a very hard game for us because we made big mistakes around their goals". "It was a really outstanding performance that the boys delivered today". Over 85 minutes we were really dominant.

"We deserved to win that game today". We all have the same situation in a football team. But for now, early on in this campaign, Liverpool seems up for the challenge.

And Wijnaldum has warned his team-mates they need to improve if they want to be closer this time around.

In the second half, it was once again all Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp's side continued to enjoy more ball possession, but lacked composure to increase their lead.

"There is no point going through this season saying, "come on, come on, we have to win something, we have to win something".
