Jurgen Klopp has warned his Liverpool side they need to improve, despite their 5-0 thrashing of Manchester United last weekend.
The Reds remain unbeaten this season after humiliating United in their own back yard, with the defeat piling the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
While United go in search of a much-needed win at Tottenham on Saturday, Liverpool will be hoping to return to the top of the Premier League as they host Brighton.
Despite the margin of his side’s victory at Old Trafford, and the ease in which they completed their rout, Klopp has denied the notion that the performance was ‘perfect’.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tenure as Manchester United manager is looking fragile after the humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

And that will no doubt pile on the misery for United fans, with the Liverpool boss seemingly agreeing with others that his side weren’t even at their best in last weekend’s thrashing.
“We have to improve, we know that,” Klopp said. “The world is like this – you win 5-0 against United and everything is perfect. Well, it was not.
“United had clear-cut chances, which we gave them. We should not rely on luck or Ali (goalkeeper, Alisson). We could have done better. This is how we spoke at half-time, even though we were 4-0 up.
“It is really important you believe you have to play better, otherwise you open up the gate for them. I saw the first half, we gave too much away. We have to improve, in general.
“On the other side, you have to finish the situations off and there are moments when it clicks and, so far, it clicks in a lot of moments – that is why we have some impressive scorelines.
“But you can’t expect that to happen all the time and that is why we have to be ready for a 1-0, I have no problem with that.
“Where we have to improve is to be stable defensively when the opponent has the ball. There is no reason why someone has to get through, if we do things well. We need to have a solution. That is where we 100 per cent can improve.”
