  3. 'Our organisation was a lot better'

    Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld, speaking to Sky Sports: "As a defensive side we did wonderfully well. Unfortunately we couldn’t get ourselves a point.

    "We're disappointed with the result but not with the performance. We have to take the positives from this game. We had a clear week to train with no mid-week game. I think you could see the organisation was a lot better.

    "We have to keep going, build from this performance and keep working hard."

    James Gallagher: Yeah Liverpool won 20 of the first 21 games, but they didn't match the opening 11 win sequence in the top tier league of the legendary Tottenham side in 1960-61.

    Tunde Paul: Still tight lipped on invincible season and winning the Premier League like any Liverpool fans. But I think it’s gradually becoming a reality. It’s only 16 points gap.

  5. 'A freak season'

    Chris Sutton

    Former England striker on 606

    Liverpool are out on their own at the moment. They are absolutely exceptional. This is a freak season.

  6. 'I think we deserved more'

    Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho, speaking to Sky Sports: "Yesterday we spent half an hour defending throw-ins and we lost the game on the throw-in. I think the refs did a very good job, but the assistant on the opposite side didn’t see that Mane touched the ball [in the build-up to the goal].

    "We have to try to create a buzz to compete with a team as good as they are. I think we deserved more. We intensified the pressure more in the second half. We were more aggressive.

    "I told you they would win the league when they beat Manchester City three or four months ago. They were lucky – they could have conceded a goal and got a red card for Robertson's challenge."

    On debutant Japhet Tanganga: "I think everybody at the club has to be proud of him. That’s what Tottenham does and has to do when we feel it’s the right player and the right occasion. It was the perfect occasion for him."

  8. 'Sometimes you get less than you deserve

    Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

    Tottenham Hotspur

    Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho, speaking to BBC Sport: "This is football. Sometimes you get more than you deserve. Sometimes you get less. This was an occasion when we got nothing when we deserved something. This is the best team in the world against a team in a difficult moment, with injuries, in a difficult part of the season. The boys were fantastic when we tried to change and create problems."

    On a potential handball in the build-up to the goal, that was inconclusive on VAR: "I didn't watch it. What I watch is 200% that the throw in for the start of the goal was our throw. I am confused with VAR because of that."

    On finishing in the top four: "It is possible to talk about top four when you start the season on zero points. But it is hard to talk about it when you start at minus 12 (the number of points off the top four Spurs were when he took over)."

  9. 'Our lead is not interesting'

    Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to Sky Sports: "We played super football in their box, but for 90-95 minutes you have to be ready. We were, but we still have to do better."

    On Liverpool's record: "It’s special. To win the number of games, to always be ready to fight, that’s what the boys to. The only thing is that you don’t get anything for best starts. The only thing we’re interested in is what we can get in the summer. This league is so strong. We have to be ready.

    "Our lead is really not interesting. The moment we have so many points that nobody can catch us anymore, that’s when I’ll be interested."

    Seb Murphy: Liverpool have already eclipsed their total points tally from Klopp's first season in charge in 15-16, 60 points.

    Zeb Bowyer: This tweet won’t make it onto BBC Sport because it is far too honest. The general level of top class football in so called ‘Big Matches’ in the Premier League currently is frankly embarrassing. Liverpool were sloppy. Spurs were clueless. Football lost.

    NB: Honesty's the best policy Zeb - we all know that...

  11. 'So far, so very good'

    Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was very hard-fought because we didn't close the game down early. We should have been one or 2-0 up already when we scored. If you have quality opponent like Tottenham and you don't close the game they will come back. Allison makes things look easy. It is not what we would have wanted. It is intense, you lose the ball and you are facing one of the best counter-attacking sides. We had Robbo (Andy Robertson) free two or three times and he didn't find a team-mate, so we didn't help ourselves."

    On his side's defensive record: "We needed Alisson for that today. We had a few dips defensively. Some games he has not a lot to do with winning the ball high early. It is good but there is no other chance to win games than to defend well."

    On their record start to the season: "It doesn't feel somehow special. We know about it and it is special but I can't feel it. When someone gives you a trophy it is done but until then you need to fight. It is only the start. We need to continue because our contenders are so strong. Pep (Guardiola, man City boss) will not give up. I will do the same. So far, so really good."

  12. 'We should have scored more goals'

    Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to Sky Sports: "First and foremost the result is the most important thing. One team deserved to win and that was us. To win at Tottenham is pretty special. That the game wasn’t decided after 50-60 minutes was our fault.

    It was very intense for us. You can expect them to defend deep in this stadium, but it was 4-6-0 in the first half. If it was easy to win here, a lot more teams would do it.

    I’m over the moon about the result, but we have to talk about the performance. We should have scored more goals – that’s the truth. We have to be honest with ourselves. We could have scored more and we have to – especially in this stadium against a team like Tottenham.

    We were on the ground towards the end and they were coming forward. The spell we’ve had, it costs you rhythm. In the second half a couple of our players were slightly exhausted, but we fought through that.

  15. 'Still room for improvement'

    Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

    Liverpool

    Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk, speaking to Sky Sports: "We want to analyse the game and be much better, but three points is massive, especially here. We play Spurs who are a good side. They were in the Champions League final and that must still hurt for them and they will want to bounce back. Second half they pressed and made it difficult for us.

    "The league lead gives us all a good feeling. But you see there is still room for improvement; We are in a good situation but there is work we can do to make it easier."
