Final Thoughts

Liverpool have completed the double over Tottenham for the second season in a row. 


The hosts were dealt with a massive blow losing Harry Kane to injury at half time and Son Heung-min struggled the second half without his strike partner. Despite scoring his first goal for Spurs, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's goal wasn't enough to rescue points for the hosts.


The Liverpool players are re-finding form and three goals from three different players will help the team regain some confidence.

Last Time Out!

Jose Mourinho heads into the game being unbeaten in all six of his league home games against reigning champions. With a win today, Mourinho's men head back into the top four a game behind some of their competitiors. But Jurgen Klopp and his men travel to London without a win in the league for over five weeks.

Spurs have beaten Manchester City and Arsenal at home this season but they'll need to beat the champions to remain in contention for the Premier League title.
