Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham
Premier League, Anfield
October 27, 2019
Goals: Henderson 52′, Salah pen 75′; Kane 1′
The Reds hosted Mauricio Pochettino’s team, looking to bounce back from their first dropped league points of the season last weekend.
Liverpool couldn’t have made a worse start to proceedings, with Harry Kane heading home in front of the Kop inside the first minute after Heung-min Son’s effort deflected off the woodwork.
The Reds then dominated the rest of the first half, but were left frustrated as a combination of goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga and poor finishing saw the score remain 1-0.
Klopp has instilled a remarkable winning mentality in his players, though, and they never panicked at any point.
Jordan Henderson responded from a poor first half to equalise with a smart finish after the break, leading to a tense remainder of the game.
Liverpool managed to ride out a late storm from Spurs, with Alisson making important stops in the dying minutes, as the Reds secured a priceless win.
Their lead over Man City is back to six points, ahead of next Saturday’s trip to Aston Villa.
