Liverpool and Chelsea continued their ideal starts to the Premier League season on Saturday, and together have done something England have not seen in over a century.

After two weeks of an global break both sides will be looking to maintain their early season momentum.

Dele Alli and Hugo Lloris are both out for Spurs, but Son makes a return for them from the Asian games (where South Korea won Gold).

The global break was long and arduous but with Premier League action set to resume today, supporters will be able to feast their eyes on the most exciting game of the week at Wembley.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had been concerned about Firmino when he spoke to the media immediately after the Spurs game.

The Reds opened up Saturday's Premier League fixtures with a 2-1 win over Tottenham at Wembley Stadium , which made it five wins in five games so far this season for the Anfield club.

The Reds' dominance in the match finally paid off as Georginio Wijnaldum put his side ahead in the 39th minute after Tottenham failed to clear their lines from a corner kick played by James Milner.

Perhaps most immediately useful at launch, though, is its promise of allowing cloud saves for any games players have in progress. In a short but sweet kick-off during today's Nintendo Direct, the company announced Luigi's Mansion 3 for Nintendo Switch .

"The performance today, for me, was better than the result", Klopp told a postmatch news conference.

Liverpool avenged last season's 4-1 defeat to Spurs at Wembley to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League.

And for the sake of the spectacle, the Premier League would also benefit from this type of fixture being played without both sides having to juggle their squads because of the draining effects of travelling the globe that worldwide football can have on their players.

"I don't wait for problems, but I am old enough to know they will come".

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino has confirmed there is no long-term damage to his eye after a horrific incident involving Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen. So now we have to prove that and do it again and again and again, and see if we can do so.

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