Klopp will be looking to send out a tough signal from this game. The Reds have won their opening four games of a league season for the first time since 1990-91 under Kenny Dalglish. In only two previous top-flight seasons have they won their opening five games (1990-91 and 1978-79).
Klopp has got his side playing some very decent football. In the Reds’ first two wins of the season over West Ham and Crystal Palace, Liverpool scored 6 goals in total; achieving a passing accuracy of a shade over 90% in both games.
Liverpool’s general form is against Spurs is good. LFC have only failed to score in one of their last 12 Premier League games against THFC – in flat, that was a 0-0 draw in Jurgen Klopp’s first game in charge of the Reds in October 2015.
Mohamed Salah’s record against Spurs is of note; the Egyptian scored all three of Liverpool’s Premier League goals against us last season.
Klopp’s record is also good. Liverpool have won nine of their 15 Premier League games in London under the German (W9 D3 L3), though they’re yet to beat Spurs on the road during Jurgen’s reign (D2 L1).
Liverpool should make for a tougher opponent than Manchester United.
