Tottenham 4-1 Liverpool: 'I did not see it coming' says, Klopp

Heung-Min Son scored the second goal at the 12 minutes before Mohamed Salah scored the only Liverpool goal at the 24th minutes.

In addition to falling into a massive hole so early in a game against a top-four and title contender, that disastrous opening also saw Liverpool concede their 1000th Premier League goal in the process when Kane gave Spurs the lead.

The board and Klopp are now seeing their refusal to look at other defensive targets bar Southampton player Virgil Van Dijk come back to haunt them, and have conceded nine goals in two games against Manchester City and Spurs this season.

"It's so important that performance and that result always brings us more confidence in the way we are working".

It all started going wrong on four minutes when an innocuous-looking situation from a throw-in on the Tottenham right was returned to Kieran Trippier. His pace caught the eye on the break and allowed Harry Kane to work his way into one on one situations with defenders at will. "Second goal [is a] counter attack".

But as if that wasn't bad enough, Lovren then completely misjudged the flight of the ball and missed his header, which sent Kane clean through on goal.

It made little difference though as Spurs took advantage of more woeful defending in first-half stoppage time. "Harry is too quick and powerful, and in the middle Son wins the race so it's an easy goal". "I told the players that I believe the players, I believe in the commitment of the players". The fans were fantastic, 90,000 people at Wembley. We can not force the things and we would never get a centre-back just because.

But Pochettino is running out of superlatives when it comes to describing his star striker Kane, whose 37 goals for Tottenham in 2017 is only beaten by Lionel Messi of Barcelona.

"It's hard to find different words to describe him", Pochettino said.

Chances were few and far between during the closing stages, but there was concern for Pochettino after Kane limped off with what appeared to be a hamstring problem.

"[He is] OK, tired. The effort was unbelievable from him and [it is] normal at the end of the day to be exhausted". Liverpool's defeat at Wembley drew an official attendance of 80,827, the third-highest in league history after Manchester United v Arsenal at Maine Road in January 1948 (83,260) and Chelsea v Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in October 1935 (82,905).
