First half goals from Luis Suarez and Jordan Henderson gave Brendan Rodgers’ men a comfortable half-time lead, before a late flurry of goals from Jon Flanagan, another from Suarez and finally Raheem Sterling added insult to injury for Andre Villas-Boas’ men.
Liverpool can go top of the Premier League with a win over Cardiff City at Anfield next Saturday lunch time.
After Sunday’s epic victory in North London, a number of Liverpool players tweeted their delight:
A great victory at White Hart Lane. Happy for the team and myself.Very happy for my first assist. Hopefully the first of many for LFC. ?????

Great result. Not many teams will do them at White Hart Lane. #TotalSoccer

Whilst Liverpool fans shared their joy at going back to second in the league table and ending the White Hart Lane hoodoo.
20 goals a season was a benchmark for a striker but Suarez is on course to do that before the half way mark AND after missing 1st 5 games!!!

2012-13 Spurs, City and Chelsea away = 1 point.

It will sound knee jerk, but I do think we can be in contention for the title this season, we are contenders on that performance. #LFC.

Is it me or does Hdnderson grow in stature whenever Gerrard is absent? Bossed midfield today and looked like a future leader

Henderson, Allen, Sterling, Flanagan & Sakho magnificent. Suarez always is. I'm just regretting not making the trip to White Hart Lane.

Best result since 1-4 Man United away?

Simply sensational reds. Well done every one of you. That is a real marker as to our expectations #LFC
— Dan Holland (@danhollandlfc) December 15, 2013
Super finish. Well in Flanagan.

Performance of the season by Liverpool IMO today coupled with the signings they are likely to make in January shows bright future for #LFC

Amazing day in the capital. Best display of Rodgers' reign by some distance. Spurs were awful but Liverpool made them look poor. Relentless
— James Pearce (@JamesPearceLFC) December 15, 2013
For my money Liverpool's performance against Spurs is the best I've seen from a team anywhere in Europe this season. Just brilliant.
— Cristian Nyari (@Cnyari) December 15, 2013
My favourite stat from the one match report I've seen: Liverpool have scored more open play goals at WHL than Spurs this season. Hahahaha!
