Liverpool end winless streak

Liverpool rediscovered their winning touch in the Premier League as the champions won 3-1 against Tottenham.

Jurgen Klopp’s side moved into the top four with their first win in six league games.

First half

The visitors controlled possession and carved Spurs open in the opening two minutes but Sadio Mane shot wide.

Liverpool were always vulnerable to a sucker punch on the counter and that came when the devastating duo of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min linked up. The South Korean got in behind the Liverpool defence and beat Alisson at his near post but the goal was ruled out for offside.

After 482 minutes without scoring in the Premier League, Liverpool ended the run. On the stroke of half time, Sadio Mane made a direct run behind Serge Aurier and he was picked out by Jordan Henderson.

Mane crossed low for Roberto Firmino who nipped in ahead of Eric Dier and Hugo Lloris to score.

Second half

Harry Kane was replaced at half time due to an ankle injury and Liverpool doubled their lead just two minutes after half time. Sadio Mane’s shot was parried by Lloris into the path of Trent Alexander-Arnold who struck a fierce shot into the bottom corner.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg sweet strike from the edge of the area two minutes later halved the deficit but Mane capitalised on a Joe Rodon mistake to fire past Lloris and secure the win for Liverpool.
