Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino proved enough to give Liverpool the points despite Erik Lamela's injury-time effort for Spurs, who had a late penalty shout waved away. After all the Reds have won five European Cups/Champions Leagues to Manchester United's three.
The Merseyside outfit are the hot favourites to challenge City for the title and they've started the season strongly, winning all four games so far and conceding just once.
"That was a tough game, man!" But I'm not going to complain. "But the result is the most important thing and the result is flawless because winning here is so hard", Klopp said.
And it is that wealth of talent that means they have already picked up more points (three) away from home against last season's top six than they did in the whole of 2017-18 (one).
He deservedly picked up the man of the match award and the fact that £50 million signing Fabinho can not dislodge him is a testament to the terrific performances he has put in in the Liverpool engine room.
Alarm over Harry Kane's lacklustre form continues after he acted as a peripheral figure against Liverpool and Spurs coach Mauricio Pochettino was once again forced to defend England's golden boot victor at the recent World Cup.
Or taken a look at the team sheet where he might have seen Switzerland star Xherdan Shaqiri as an unused reserve for most matches.
Liverpool pressing high
"I thought I would just head it as high as possible as there was a lot of players in the box".
Fans were left horrified and anxious after the viral incident and inquired Liverpool about Roberto Firmino's status.
Wijnaldum opened the scoring late in the first half at Wembley after a mistake from Tottenham goalkeeper Michel Vorm.
Kane struggled against Liverpool, unable to have an impact as Spurs fell to a second straight defeat. "One is more a player that plays on the side, but now is a little bit playing inside, but he's a winger".
Firmino wrapped up Liverpool's fifth successive win soon after the interval when the Brazil forward tapped in after more sloppy defending and another Vorm misjudgement. True the club also kept their best players, but it has been proven time and again that teams need to re energise and redo their teams every season- and this wouldn't have been money wasted to invest in a couple of quality players that could have been drafted in and added to the squad.
He was never ever going to be able to repeat that this season.
Liverpool held their nerve and look nothing like the team who Spurs ripped apart 4-1 last season.
