Wijnaldum not making a statement

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum says he and his colleagues remain firmly focused on winning games and not anything of a longer-term nature.

The Reds made it five win out of five in the Premier League this season by claiming a 2-1 success against Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley, with Wijnaldum heading home the opening goal.

However, the Netherlands international was wary of reading too much into the result against one of the other teams expected to be amongst the title challengers.

He told his club's official website: "I don't really want to speak about statements because every game is different. Now is Tottenham, other teams will come.

"A game is a game, it's not really a statement. You can win this and lose another game.

"We just must make sure that we will not lose these games easily and that we have to do a lot of things to win these games.

"We have to be concentrated, give everything and play good football. Then we can win these games – we need to focus on those things and not on 'giving statements'."

The Merseysiders move on to a Champions League clash with Paris Saint Germain at Anfield on Tuesday evening, with the visitors having also won their first five league games this season.

The two teams have met just once before in European competition, that in the semi-finals of the Cup Winners' Cup in 1997, when PSG won out 3-2 on aggregate.

Liverpool are 23/20 to claim victory on Tuesday and are 14/1 to secure a 2-0 win, with the Merseysiders 12/1 to go all the way and win the Champions League this season.
