A last-minute header by Firmino clinched a 2-1 win for Liverpool against Tottenham to send the Anfield club top of the English Premiership.

In an entertaining game at home, Liverpool played the kind of football that marked their race to the title last season, a fitting tribute to former manager Gerard Houllier who died a few days ago.

Mo Salah pounced inside the box to open the scoring, helped by a deflection but Liverpool’s lead was short-lived as Son Heung-min raced forward in a swift counter-attack to fire Spurs level.

The second half was just as thrilling with Tottenham creating the better chances but failure to make those chances came back to bite them when Firmino headed the winner on the stroke of full time.

Three precious points, a cracking game and Liverpool top.
