FT: Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool
A huge win for the Reds as they extended their unbeaten run. 20 wins and one draw this season for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. Chances for Spurs in the second half, some of which looked certain goals. They'll be ruing their missed chances, but they made the Reds work for the win and ensured it wasn't a straight forward victory.
92' Alisson makes yet another save as Son attempts a desperate shot.

74' The hosts miss a huge chance as Wijnaldum is caught out in midfield. Son gets a shot away and it looks a certain goal, but it flies over the crossbar.
72' Atkinson pauses the game as Tanganga is down injured for Spurs. Vertonghen sent out to warm up. Looks like cramp for the young defender.

Second half
Spurs get the second half underway...
HT: Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool
Liverpool lead at the break after a well-taken goal from Firmino. The Reds have largely dominated possession as Mourinho set his team up extremely defensively, looking to restrict and frustrate the Merseyside club. But Klopp's side found a breakthrough eventually and could be two or three goals to the good. Spurs look threatening on the counter, though. 
A fantastic finish from Firmino!
CLOSE!!
42' Salah gets the better of Sanchez and sends a left-footed effort marginally wide.
39' Now Oxlade-Chamberlain goes into the book for a late challenge on Moura.
GOAAALL!! FIRMINO

Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool

Henderson and Salah combine to set up Firmino, who smashes it past Gazzaniga with his left foot.

VAR checks the goal for a possible handball from the Reds captain in the build up but the goal is given.

35' Good build up from Liverpool but Mane volleys his effort into the ground and it flies over the crossbar.
A little sloppy from Liverpool in the last few minutes as Spurs have come close to getting in behind a couple of times. A number of poor passes has gifted the hosts opportunities.
22' A huge save from Gazzaniga to keep out a Van Dijk header at the near post. Spurs counter and Gomez looses out to Son in a foot race, he commits the foul and goes into the book.
21' Henderson loses the ball for a second time, gifting Spurs a chance. Eriksen's shot is tame and Alisson holds it comfortably, but thats not a mistake Liverpool will want to keep making.
Spurs extremely defensive in the opening stages, with every player deep in their own half. Liverpool struggling to find space and create opportunities. Seems like it will take something special or a set piece to break the London side down.
11' Robertson finds some space on the left hand side and whips a cross into the box. It evades any red shirts and goes out for a Spurs throw. Moments later the hosts have a chance up the other the end with Dele Alli but his effort flies over the bar. VAR may have intervened anyway as it appeared there was a handball from the midfielder.
7' Henderson loses the ball in midfield and Son breaks. His eventual effort is wide.
4' Moura drags a shot wide after skipping past Gomez and Henderson.
How have Liverpool not scored?
2' Firmino gets a shot away and nearly gives the Reds the lead but his effort is saved by Gazzaniga. Oxlade-Chamberlain with the follow up but he hits the post.

As the Christmas schedule comes to a close...
Fixtures pile up at this time of year as teams find themselves playing every couple of days across Christmas and New Year.

It's a difficult period as injuries start to mount up and fatigue kicks in, Spurs' loss of Harry Kane and Liverpool losing James Milner to injuries recently exemplify that.

Liverpool's run has been outstanding, winning 10 of their 11 games in all competitions since the beginning of December - which includes victories against Leicester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Sheffield United and a FIFA Club World Cup trophy to top it off.

Since the start of December, Spurs have won only three of their nine games, losing four times and drawing twice.

What Klopp had to say...
Speaking to the media on Friday, Klopp outlined what he expects from Mourinho's Tottenham: “A very good organised Tottenham side; yes, putting some emphasis on defending, for sure, having counter-attacks – but the team is too good technically that they will do that only.

“We cannot be sure 100 per cent what they will do, but we obviously have signs and we have to think about what he did against us when he was at Man United with his team.

“All these things, that’s normal analysis. Analysis always ends quite a way from the truth, the reality, because we don’t know 100 per cent.

"They can all make their own decisions."

On the role of new signing Takumi Minamino and his performance as a central striker against Everton: “He played there because we thought it was the most natural to him in the first place, especially defending-wise against the ball it was most natural to him.

"But it’s not the only position he can play, no, no no.

"He played in a 4-4-2, both wings, second striker, for Japan the only striker – [there is] a lot he has to offer and I loved the game."

What Mourinho had to say...
Jose Mourinho addressed the media on Friday, starting his press conference by addressing the Harry Kane injury: "That's life. That's football. Of course, it's bad news but we have to be positive and look also to the good news.

"The good news is that before the end of the month we'll have two new players - Lloris and Ben Davies [current injury absentees]."

On the prospect of facing Liverpool: "When I was working with you [as a pundit] I said that Liverpool will become champions and this was three months ago.

"So for me, the situation they are at is not a surprise.

"They are the best team in the Premier League so it's a challenge for us to play against them.

"Of course, we would prefer to play against them with everybody available, we would prefer to have more options, but that's the way it is."

Last time out...
The two sides met back in October when the Reds edged a 2-1 home victory after a late penalty from Mohamed Salah.

Last season Liverpool won both fixtures against Spurs, with a 2-0 win earlier in the season and a closely contested 2-1 victory back in March.
