Liverpool proved on Thursday that they remain favourites to win the Premier League after taking all three points away to Tottenham. Jurgen Klopp’s men were the better side and earned a fair 3-1 win.
When the game was just getting underway the Reds were given a scare by a Son Heung-min goal, but it was disallowed by VAR.
In the last minute of the first half, the visitors found the first goal of the game. Jordan Henderson sent a long ball to Sadio Mane, who assisted Roberto Firmino for the Brazilian to score.
The second half was even more interesting. In the 47th minute, Trent Alexander-Arnold took advantage of a rebound conceded by Hugo Lloris (who had saved an earlier Mane shot) and scored the second goal for the visitors.
Tottenham reacted two minutes later. Pierre-Emil Hojberg received a pass from Steven Bergwijn and with a powerful shot beat Alisson Becker to score Spurs’ first goal.
Shortly after, Mohamed Salah gave us an exquisite goal, but VAR ruled it out for a previous handball by Firmino.
Even so, in the 65th minute Alexander-Arnold sent a cross into the box and Mane scored his club’s third goal.
With this result, Liverpool ended a run of five games without a win and are now fourth with 37 points.
