FULL TIME: Liverpool 4 – 2 Tottenham

It had been billed as a potentially tight contest between Liverpool and Tottenham in their Premier League encounter at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, but it did not turn out to be besides a late rally from the visitors.

Jurgen Klopp’s side turned on the style with four goals as Tottenham were left reeling. The visitors only managed to get two late goals back in response in the defeat.

Tottenham Hotspur’s refreshed hopes of a top-four finish took a major blow after they were beaten 4-2 against Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday.

Fourth-placed Aston Villa lost earlier in the day which gave Spurs a route back into the race for UEFA Champions League football, but they were well beaten by Jurgen Klopp’s side to remain seven points adrift.

Mohamed Salah scored on his return to the side and headed Liverpool ahead in the first half, before Andy Robertson doubled the hosts’ lead on the stroke of half-time with a close-range effort.

Liverpool, who were defending what was left of their unlikely title chances, extended their lead shortly into the second period when Cody Gakpo latched onto the end of Harvey Elliott’s cross before the latter rifled a spectacular effort into the top corner for a fourth.

Tottenham threatened to mount a comeback when Richarlison and Heung-Min Son scored late on, but they would only go down as consolation goals as Liverpool held on for maximum points.
