The Reds hosted the Premier League leaders on Wednesday evening, with Jose Mourinho’s side only clear of the champions on goal difference.
Banners were out in force before kickoff in tribute to Houllier, following his extremely sad passing at the age of 73 on Sunday.
The players also remembered the former Liverpool manager, partaking in a minute’s applause…
It was Mohamed Salah who gave the Reds the lead in the first half, finding the net in rather fluky fashion, as the ball looped past Hugo Lloris.
The Egyptian was subsequently congratulated by the magnificent Curtis Jones…
It was Son who equalised for Spurs, however, pouncing on the counter-attack, before a dramatic, quality-laden second half unfolded.
With a draw looking nailed-on, Roberto Firmino rose highest to power home a header in the 90th minute, in what will go down as a memorable late Anfield winner.
