Liverpool still remain unbeaten in England’s top-flight despite facing the Premier League’s traditional topfive in their first 10 games of the campaign.
In that run, they have dropped only two points, coming off all 10 games with 28 points out of possible 30.
Tottenham are now the latest to fall to their raging sword. However, it took a late penalty from Mohammed Salah to make sure of all three points.
The Lilywhites started on the front foot and were first to pen their name on the scoresheet.
Harry Kane got the opener under just 46 seconds as Heung-Min Son’s ball couldn’t do better than hit the upright.
Son’s fierce strike from the edge of the box made a wide deflection off the head of Dejan Lovren. The ball then fell kindly to the feet of Kane who made no mistake about putting it into the net.
The England captain is now the joint-thrid highest scorer in the history of the folks at the White Hart Lane.
The lead lasted only until the 52nd minute when Jordan Henderson’s cross was cleared and then returned into the area by Fabinho.
Danny Rose committed a foul on Firmino but referee, Anthony Taylor decided to give the ball advantage with Henderson hitting a half-volley I to the net.
The Reds should have scored way before then but were stopped by Spurs goalie, Gazzaniga who had a busy day at the office.
In one breathless four-minute spell, the Argentine stood in the gap for Spurs to keep the scoreline serene.
Then, Liverpool won a penalty that was beautifully converted by Mohammed Salah.
