Match Events

3′ CLOSE! Oxlade-Chamberlain hits the post

Tanganga is involved right away as Liverpool catch Spurs out with a ball over the top to Firmino.

He cuts inside cleverly before curling a low shot towards the bottom corner, but Tanganga blocks it well!

Oxlade-Chamberlain then hits the post with the follow-up, but Gazzaniga claims after it comes off the Spurs youngster!

5′ Lucas’ shot wide out

Lucas darts towards the edge of the box and opts to shoot rather than playing Son in, thumping an effort wide of the near post.

7′ Son’s long shot wide out

Son wins the ball high up the field and cuts across the edge of the box from left to right before curling a shot just wide of the far post! Spurs have started this one on the front foot.

22′ CLOSE! Van Dijk’s header stopped by Gazzaniga

A corner isn’t dealt with by Spurs and Henderson dinks a delightful ball towards the back stick where three Liverpool players are unmarked!

Van Dijk rises highest to head at goal, but Gazzaniga keeps it out!

37′ GOAL! Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool (Firmino)

Henderson heads a throw-in to Salah, who turns and finds Firmino to his left. The Brazilian feints and sends Tanganga the wrong way before thumping an emphatic left-footed strike into the far corner! It’s 1-0 to Liverpool!

VAR checks for a possible handball by Henderson in the build-up, but nothing untoward is seen and the goal is allowed to stand!

43′ CHANCE! Salah’s shot wide out

Alli dallies in possession and loses the ball in the Spurs third, allowing Salah to break at goal.

Sanchez slips over, gifting the Egyptian a shooting angle, but he fires just wide of the near post!

46′ Lucas’ shot wide out

Aurier finds Lucas behind Henderson and the midfielder barges into the Brazilian, putting him off-balance as he slices a shot wide!

57′ Aurier’s shot was confiscated by Alisson

Alli drives into the box but is halted by a sliding challenge from Van Dijk.

The ball breaks to Aurier, who hits a fierce, swerving drive, but Alisson does superbly to hold on to the shot!

65′ Mane’s header stopped by Gazzaniga

Robertson clatters into Tanganga with his studs raised after taking a poor touch and the pair stay down. Liverpool play on, however, and Alexander-Arnold crosses into Mane, whose downward header is saved by Gazzaniga!

75′ Missed! Son’s shot over the bar

Wijnaldum is tackled in his own third and Lucas has an option left and right.

He dallies on the ball too long before eventually choosing Son on the left, and the forward has to snatch at his effort, sending it over the bar!

83′ Unbelievable! What a miss from Lo Celso

Aurier is given too much room by Robertson and curls a wicked ball to the back post that Lo Celso meets on the slide from just a few yards out, but he somehow steers wide of the far post!

89′ Lamela’s shot saved

Lamela hits an ambitious shot from outside the box but doesn’t catch it with any real conviction and it’s an easy take for Alisson.
