Jürgen Klopp’s Liverpool was forceful against Tottenham and with their triumph returned to fourth place in the English Premier League.
Tottenham scored just in the third minute of play thanks to Korean star Son Heung-Min, but the goal was disallowed after reviewing the VAR and noticing he was offside.
Rather, it was Liverpool that went ahead, with a goal in first-half stoppage time. Sadio Mané (DEN) received it with his chest and gave it to Roberto Firmino (BRA) for the Brazilian to score his sixth goal of the season.
Just into the second half Trent Alexander-Arnold (ENG) scored 2-0 and then Pierre-Emile Højbjerg (DNK) discounted with a shot from mid-range.
Mo Salah (EGY) defined the third very well after receiving the ball in the area and kicking it with his left, but the goal was disallowed after a VAR. Firmino used the hand before passing it.
Alexander-Arnold gave Mané a great pass for the third that now did count, at 65 ‘. That was the last goal of the game.
