The forward went to a London hospital after the clash with Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen in the 75th minute of Liverpool's 2-1 victory at Wembley in the English Premier League.

Souness said afterwards Spurs are "standing still" in the Premier League while he thinks Liverpool have their best side since they won the title in 1990.

Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino scored either side of half-time to put Liverpool 2-0 ahead at Wembley.

A late goal from Erik Lamela proved to be just a consolation for Spurs, who were without captain Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli. "The result is the most important thing and the result is ideal". I would never expect that, you need a really outstanding performance and that's what the boys delivered. We could have scored more.

"That was our best game of the season and the performance was much better than the result".

And Klopp is sure Kane will find his best form, even if he hopes it comes after Saturday. Unfortunately, we didn't finish the game off so that means Tottenham has the quality to strike back - which is what they did after a corner. But then nothing happened anymore. "The players did the job and they worked unbelievably hard, and I'm really proud of them". Klopp, though, stressed that there will be plenty more obstacles for his team to overcome in the rest of the campaign.

Sue Bird, also a member of a Seattle's championship teams in 2004 and 2010, had 10 points and 10 assists. Breanna Stewart led the Storm with 30 points and 8 rebounds in Game 3 of the best-of-5 series.

"I'm not a personality to wait for problems, but I'm old enough to know they will come".

It is only the third time in their history that they've opened up a top-flight season with five wins on the spin and although it's early days, plenty of fans and pundits believe they're the main contenders to Manchester City for the title. So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so. "We will see if we can do so".

The Reds play Paris St-Germain in the Champions League at Anfield on Tuesday.

"It was a free kick for Tottenham, right?"

"I don't want to be too critical because I don't know exactly how he said it but sitting in an office and talking about football is completely different to doing the job, to be honest". "But it is something with his eye and, at the moment, it is not comfortable for him".
