According to the Mirror, Jurgen Klopp's men treated themselves to dinner to celebrate their victory over Jose Mourinho's Spurs.

Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah shared a picture of himself, alongside Fabinho, Firmino, Allison and Dejan Lovren on Saturday night, along with a smiley face emoji.

The Reds boss Klopp said after the match that Firmino's first words at full-time were apologetic ones.

"When I went to him and wanted to give him a hug after the game, he wanted to stop and talk first," Klopp explained.

"He said, 'I know I should have scored more goals'... it was absolutely not what I wanted to say.

"It is true probably, but I didn't even know exactly. He should have immediately with the first chance: it was brilliant play and then he hits somehow the defender.

"Yes, [he is] a super player, super. I don't say this for the first time and will hopefully not say it for the last time. Pretty impressive."

Liverpool have been impressive since the start of the season, dropping just two points in their last 21 matches.

Manchester United are the only team to have forced the table-toppers to a 1-1 draw in their meeting earlier in the season.

Meanwhile, the German boss is not concerned with the records, saying: "When somebody told me I didn't feel anything to be honest.

"I've been in football 50 years and if somebody told me that would ever happen I would say it wasn't possible. Now it's happened and I don't know exactly what's wrong with me.

"But it's cool, it's exceptional. If that winning streak was easy then many other teams would have done it. But we didn't think about it before the game and someone had to remind me afterwards.
