Liverpool 2 – 1 Tottenham Hotspur Football Highlights
Venue : Anfield Stadium
Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 16′ Roberto Firmino 1 – 0
Henderson switches the play to Robertson, who has been keen to get his crosses in early so far – and sends in a delicious one. Tottenham have three centre-backs in there to deal with Firmino but the Brazilian ghosts in between two of them and heads home from 10 yards.
Goal : 70′ 1 – 1 Lucas Moura
Kane gets fouled near the half-way line and gets on with it, taking a quick free-kick out to Trippier (was the ball moving?) – he sends a ball into Eriksen who helps it across the box. Alexander-Arnold switches off and Moura sneaks it to finish from close range.
Goal : 90′ Toby Alderweireld (o.g.) 2 – 1
A ball gets sent to the back post where Salah is waiting from eight yards. He heads one which is straight at Lloris. He can’t hold it and it hits Alderweireld and rolls towards the goal-line. The defender looks to take a swing at it but then pulls away as Lloris makes a move towards it. They both make no contact and the ball rolls over the line.

Man Of The Match : Andrew Robertson
Liverpool extended their unbeaten home league run to 37 games (W27 D10) – the joint-second longest such streak in Premier League history (level with Manchester City), behind only Chelsea’s 86-match run between 2004-2008.
- Liverpool’s total of 79 points is their best ever tally after 32 matches of a top-flight season (adjusting to three points for a win), surpassing the 76 they had in 1987/88.
- Tottenham have now lost 17 of their 27 Premier League visits to Anfield (W2 D8); only at Old Trafford (21) have they lost more away games in the competition.
- Liverpool have scored three winning goals in the 90th minute or later in the Premier League this season, their second-most in a single campaign after 2008/09 (four).
- Spurs midfielder Christian Eriksen is just the second player to assist 10 or more Premier League goals in four successive seasons, after David Beckham for Man Utd between 1997/98 to 2000/01.
