Gonzales opened the scoring from close range, following in a Craig Bellamy shot after he had hit the post from a cross created by Stevie Gerrard down the Reds right side. Gerrard impressively cut inside the Spurs full back and placed a threatening cross behind the defence which Bellamy met but somehow guided onto the post. But Gonzales was there to stroke home from 7 yards across into the opposite corner.
The opening goal came seconds after midfielder Jermaine Jenas had missed a sitter at the other end.
Dirk Kuyt then claimed his second goal for the club in successive games, opening his Kop end account with a well taken finish from a Luis Garcia through ball. Kuyt’s emphatic finish left Paul Robinson stranded. The Dutchman again put in an impressive performance and is quickly become a fans favourite.
Liverpool‘s third came in the final minutes when John Arne Riise, back in the side after injury, collected the ball in midfield and unleashed an unstoppable arrow-like shot into the far bottom corner from all of 30 yards. Another blockbuster from the Norweigan.
