Tottenham Hotspur attacker Son Heung-min has told Spox that he's sure Liverpool will drop points soon, and doesn't think they're playing at a different level to everyone else.

The Reds maintained their 100% start to the season on Saturday afternoon, as they narrowly beat Sheffield United 1-0 at Bramall Lane thanks to Georginio Wijnaldum's second half winner.

It took a huge slice of luck, as Dean Henderson fumbled Wijnaldum's shot into the net, and the Blades were able to carve out a number of great chances against the Reds.

 

Jurgen Klopp will be looking for better from his side in upcoming games against Red Bull Salzburg and Leicester City, but he's still be delighted that his side have won every Premier League game so far this season.

Klopp's men already have a five point lead at the top of the Premier League table, and seven points clear of third-placed Leicester City, with their great start leaving them clear at the top.

Now, Tottenham star Son has been asked about Liverpool, and he confidently predicted that they will drop points sooner or later, and doesn't think that they're playing at a different level to everyone else despite their strong start.

Son noted that ten points can be made up between now and the end of the season, and doesn't want to give up on catching Liverpool despite the differing form between the two sides.

“Liverpool will certainly drop points,” said Son. “I would not say that they play at a different level. I definitely do not want to give up. There are also ten points to catch up. Especially if you look at how many games are left to play. Everything can happen,” he added.
