Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp labelled Saturday's 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur his side's best game of the season but warned that their flawless start did not mean they could expect a trouble-free ride in the Premier League.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he sees their clash at Tottenham today as a test of their title credentials.

"For the boys it's always a big challenge that they really have to remind themselves what we actually do. Both teams are going well, and I think they would both be happy enough for a point".

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.

Firmino almost set the tone after 45 seconds with a goal that was disallowed when Sadio Mane was ruled to be offside, and though Michel Vorm parried away an attempt by Mohamed Salah after 22 minutes, Liverpool struck first behind Wijnaldum.

Spurs were flying to open the Premier League season, claiming three straight wins - including a 3-0 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Tropical Storm Isaac continues to weaken as it approaches the Caribbean
Meteorologists are also keeping an eye on yet another tropical disturbance that's spinning in the western Gulf of Mexico. Isaac was moving at nearly 14mph with maximum sustained winds of 40mph as it tracked westward across the Caribbean Sea.

"I would not give it [last year's match] a second thought if you [the media] would not remind me of it", Klopp said after the match.

The Reds have had a sublime start to the season under Klopp and have already established themselves as leaders in the Premier League after winning all their games so far.

Tottenham, meanwhile, lost their first game of the new campaign last time out when they slumped to a disappointing loss to Watford.

The Brazilian forward, who ended up scoring the deciding goal from a yard out, told the club's medical staff that he could not go on after being poked in the eye by Spurs defender Jan Verthongen in the 74th minute. Fantastic we won all of them, fantastic we improved during the season. It is not about playing well, it is about attitude and to say, "Hey, come on, we are aggressive and we try to win". "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him". Now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again.

"We should be talking in a different way now because if it was given, it's 2-2 if we score the goal".
