Liverpool extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 16 points with a game in hand as they battled to a hard win at Tottenham.
Jurgen Klopp’s men became 1st team in Europe’s top-five leagues to win twenty of their first twenty one games as they withstood a second-half fightback from Spurs to win courtesy of Roberto Firmino’s first-half goal.
The Brazil forward turned Spurs’ young debutant Japhet Tanganga then beat Paulo Gazzaniga with a sweet left-foot strike to allow the visitors a due lead.
However Liverpool was then grateful to poor finishing from Jose Mourinho’s aspect – who were while not the without Harry Kane – so as to record another conclusion on their apparently relentless march to a first title in thirty years.
Son Heung-Min and substitute Giovani lo Celso lost superb second-half probabilities to give Spurs some reward for a performance that improved as the game went on.
