“That’s massive to come here and win the way we did, it’s a big statement. We wanted to start the season well and got three wins out of three. It’s been a fantastic start.”

In January, Liverpool made Virgil van Dijk the world’s most expensive defender, in the summer we made Alisson temporarily the planet’s dearest keeper, and added Naby Keita and Fabinho to the mix too – so we can only assume Kane’s speaking metaphorically!

In fairness to Spurs, there’s been little said about their chances of winning the title because they didn’t buy a single player in the summer – but they’re a genuinely excellent side with class all over the pitch.

We play them on September 15th following the international break, which is a fixture we traditionally struggle with – especially considering it kicks off at 12:30 and is at Wembley.
