Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: 'We have not come close to 100% yet'
Oct 24 2016 by Marjorie Miles
It was slightly premature - their 2-1 win over West Brom had put them level on points yet a goal behind Arsenal - but the giddiness was understandable.
The England global produced a typically energetic, creative display to help Liverpool to a comfortable 2-1 win courtesy of first-half goals from Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho.
Insisting that the performance of everyone inside Anfield - fans and players - "was really great" and said that he enjoyed "each second" of Saturday evening, even the goal they conceded because it "made the excitement [last] a little bit longer".
"It is too early for that talk [on a title push], we have to concentrate on each game, it is a bonus teams around us dropped points but the main aim for us is to get three points".
"We had control, but we didn't create enough chances to score", Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino told Sky Sports.
"The atmosphere was outstanding, it was Anfield at its best". For me, it is really hard to be kind of satisfied or something with football games, but a 2-1 keeps you more awake than a 4-0, that's how it is.
Speaking at his post-match press conference, he added: "Yes, in dreamland then you win always 4-0, 5-0 and the crowd can go earlier and people can go and do something more serious".
"The chances we had are from counter-attacks and the offensive boys and our full-backs are pushing up and trying to be involved".

Fed can be 'gentle' in hiking rates, Dudley says
A previous hike was made last December, increasing interest rates from almost zero to their current levels of 0.25%-0.5%. But after the Fed hikes rates in December, the outlook for gold should become much better, they said.
After going two ahead with ten first-half minutes left to play, it looked like Liverpool were ready to fill their boots. "We fought loads and it is one point more and a clean sheet".
"We work for each other and we've just got to be consistent".
A two-goal victory would have taken Liverpool top, but McAuley denied them first place when he smashed in a late goal after the hosts failed to clear a corner.
"It's a disappointment to concede from another set-piece", Lallana continued. "They are so effective, they really are role models off set-pieces", Klopp said.
Centre-backs Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren can take credit for dealing with two powerful strikers in Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimović and West Brom'sSalomon Rondon, over Liverpool's last two games.
"From set pieces they are unsafe but it would have been a joke if we drew today". The Northern Ireland global firstly created a half chance for McAuley with a swinging free kick to the far post that forced Karius into a save.
"Their front five are as good as anything in the league". They are not in Europe, which is draining.
"Last time [that was the case] they came close with Brendan [Rodgers], he had a free run".
