Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino struck either side of half-time at Wembley to make it five wins in as many games for last season’s Champions League runners-up.
Erik Lamela pounced in second-half injury time to cause a few nervous moments within a late Spurs fightback, but Liverpool dominated throughout and should have finished emphatic winners.
“For me the performance was better than the result. But the result is the most important thing and the result is perfect because winning here is so difficult,” Klopp said.
“You need an outstanding performance to win and that’s what the boys delivered. We could have scored more and we controlled the game.
“It was our best game of the season for sure. We had 85 brilliant minutes, although unfortunately we didn’t finish the game off.
