Souness also believes that Klopp needs a player with that special bit of skill to win a game while also being industrious without the ball. Dejan Lovren and Virgil van Dijk also played well despite the late penalty to Man City.

What concerns me more about Spurs is still the strength of their squad and whether it is deep enough compared to the likes of City, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Unlike the four enthralling encounters between the two last season when Liverpool beat the English champions three times, a highly-anticipated clash fell flat with neither side managing to register a shot on target until after the hour mark. We want to create but when you make a mistake - if it is an open game at Anfield, you don't even have one per cent of a chance.

"Obviously I'm not happy", said Jesus. This hasn't impacted Liverpool's results so far, but it's a growing concern for Klopp.

It'll be followed by the visit of Red Star Belgrade, themselves dismantled in Paris last week, in European action and then the arrival of Cardiff City at Anfield in league action to round off the month.
