VIDEO: Liverpool edge Tottenham 2-1 to maintain perfect start

Liverpool maintained their perfect start to the season with a 2-1 victory over Tottenham at Wembley.

Georginio Wijnaldum's first Premier League away goal, awarded by goal-line technology, put Liverpool ahead on 36 minutes before Roberto Firmino sealed a fifth-consecutive victory with their second nine minutes after the interval.

Eric Lamela grabbed a goal back in stoppage-time but it proved too little, too late for Mauricio Pochettino's men as Spurs slipped to a second successive defeat.

There was so nearly a sensational start for Liverpool, who had the ball in the back of the net inside a minute when Sadio Mane diverted a cross from the right beyond Michel Vorm.

However Spurs, who looked to be carrying a hangover from their defeat at Watford.
