Brendan Rodgers believes the future looks bright for Liverpool and England thanks to the ever-improving Raheem Sterling, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson.
The Reds yesterday showed no hangover from Monday's heavy defeat at reigning champions Manchester City, with Sterling, Steven Gerrard and a wonderful solo effort from Alberto Moreno securing a 3-0 win at Tottenham.
Debutant Mario Balotelli wasted several chances to add extra gloss to the scoreline and Sterling fluffed his chance to score a goal to remember, with Rodgers joking he "ran into the box like Ricky Villa and finished it like Ricky Gervais".
Otherwise, the Liverpool boss was glowing in his praise for Sterling and with Henderson and Sturridge also excelling, predicted England will also benefit from the progress made by the trio.

1/22 Hugo Lloris
Unusually poor distribution from the Frenchman in a below par display. 5/10
2/22 Eric Dier
The star of Spurs' start to the season struggled against superior opposition and gave away the penalty. 5
3/22 Danny Rose
Was caught horribly out of position for first goal early on and his afternoon failed to improve from there. 4
4/22 Younes Kaboul
Looked all at sea throughout. 4
5/22 Jan Vertonghen
Given an uncomfortable afternoon by the pace and movement of the Liverpool front three. 5
6/22 Etienne Capoue
Was found wanting in his role of screening the Spurs back four. 5
7/22 Nabil Bentaleb
Failed to impose himself on the game and was subbed before the hour mark. 4
8/22 Erik Lamela
Struggled to get into the game and was an anonymous presence. 5
9/22 Christian Eriksen
Failed to provide a creative spark and was unusually wasteful with his set pieces. 5
10/22 Nacer Chadli
Should have buried a glorious chance late in the first half but volleyed straight at Mignolet. 5
11/22 Emmanuel Adebayor
Frustrating and inconsistent, as ever, but lacked any service from the Spurs midfield. 5
12/22 Simon Mignolet
The Belgian stopper was on the few occasions he was needed and saved well from a Chadli volley. 6
13/22 Javi Manquillo
Steady but unspectacular display from the Spaniard. 7
14/22 Alberto Moreno
Tenacious defensively and ran from inside his own half to score a wonderful solo goal. 8
15/22 Dejan Lovren
Already looking like a superb signing for Liverpool. Easily their best defender. 8
16/22 Mamado Sakho
Had to rely on Lovren to cover for his occasional lapses in concentration. 6
17/22 Joe Allen
Booked for a cynical tackle in the first half before winning the penalty by making the most of soft challenge from Dier. 6
18/22 Steven Gerrard
A typical Gerrard performance. Tackled well, overhit passes and scored a penalty. 7
19/22 Jordan Henderson
Another assured display from the England man. Tackled well, passed well and provided the assist for Sterling's goal. 8
20/22 Raheem Sterling
Another outstanding display from the teenager. Caused havoc all afternoon as well as scoring the opening goal. 9
21/22 Daniel Sturridge
Dangerous throughout and his excellent run and pass led to the first goal. 7
22/22 Mario Balotelli
Missed a host of chances but his hold up and link play was impressive. 6
"Raheem needs to be better on his left foot," Rodgers said. "It was a wonderful moment of skill and he was fantastic for us again.
"His tactical awareness is improving, and for a kid of 19... he's been great.
"I don't see him as a (number) 10, I think he's flexible. You've seen his flexibility and it was perfect against Spurs.
"It's important he has the intelligence to play these different positions and he's developing that well.
"Him, Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson are playing at a leading club and showing really good tactical awareness and energy. They're going to do well for Roy Hodgson in the years to come."
The trio joined up with England on Sunday evening ahead of Wednesday's friendly against Norway and the start of the European Championship campaign in Switzerland.
Their attention may be turning to international matters but those in and around Liverpool will be focused on last-minute transfer activity - something Rodgers said will mainly involve outgoings.
"Players will mostly be going out rather than coming in," Rodgers said after his 100th match in charge.
"Maybe one more will come in. A few boys have been told they aren't going to get much game time so they have been given that respect early on to help themselves find a club."
There is likely to be activity at White Hart Lane as well today as Mauricio Pochettino picks up the pieces from his first defeat in charge.
"We are very disappointed with the result because we had key moments in the game," the Spurs boss said.
"In the beginning after some mistakes we conceded the first goal, but we competed very well in that first half. We created a chance, a one against one with the keeper.
"Then in the second half we conceded a very soft penalty at a key moment in the game.
"And at 2-0 down we tried, but we were unlucky. I'm disappointed with the result."
