Liverpool takes on Tottenham at Anfield in a quest to regain their lead at the top of the table, Liverpool has been unbeaten since the stat of the season.
Liverpool fought very hard after Tottenham had gone ahead after just 47 seconds of the game. Sissoko push the ball out wide to Son Heung-Min.
We are only 10 games into the league season and there is the formidable task of holding off Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City but the manner of this triumph, a far better game than that Champions League Final, will further fuel belief. It felt like a big, big win for Liverpool and a tough defeat for Tottenham. It was a win born of drive and holding their nerve and a win in which the outstanding performer was not, for once, any of the attacking triumvirate but Fabinho. The lighthouse, as the Brazilian midfielder is known, showed the way.
“You only have to think if we had lost today what the questions would have been,” said Jurgen Klopp when asked whether he agreed it was Liverpool’s finest performance of the campaign so far. He knows how tight the margins are and how to treat those two imposters of triumph and disaster.
It proved pivotal. As Liverpool claimed a penalty, with Danny Rose challenging Firmino to reach Fabinho’s chipped pass into the area, it ran to Henderson who guided a cross-shot that swung beyond the grasp of Gazzaniga and into the net. It was Henderson’s first league goal at Anfield for nearly four years and he reacted accordingly.
