FT: Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 Liverpool (Harry Kane -2, Son Heung-Min, Dele Alli, Mo Salah)


22:28 (IST)22 OCT 2017

Liverpool were thoroughly dominated by Tottenham. It doesn't really matter if they manage to win a couple of games after this embarrassing defeat, the problems will remain at Liverpool, like they have in the last seven years. Tottenham are looking impressive and the Wembley woes are behind them now. Level on points with Manchester United, Pochettino's side are showing it won't just be a two-horse title race between the Manchester clubs. This is Amit Mishra signing off.

22:21 (IST)22 OCT 2017

Peeep peeep peeeeeep! Full time!

22:19 (IST)22 OCT 2017

90' Two minutes will be added on...

22:17 (IST)22 OCT 2017

88' Substitution for Spurs: Llorente is on for Kane. 

22:16 (IST)22 OCT 2017

87' Salah manages to win a corner as Spurs' defence has been impeccable so far in the second half. Just can't get through. The hosts then counter but nothing comes off the move. Meanwhile, Harry Kane is down. Cramp perhaps. 

22:13 (IST)22 OCT 2017

22:12 (IST)22 OCT 2017

84' Substitution for Liverpool: Grujic is on for Can. 

22:12 (IST)22 OCT 2017

83' Liverpool break forward, but Salah runs out of room and the move pretty much sums up Liverpool's day. Outpaced, outthought, and outperformed. 

22:10 (IST)22 OCT 2017

81' Substitution for Spurs: Dier is on for Eriksen.

22:10 (IST)22 OCT 2017

80' Dele Alli is a little genius. Boy, how Liverpool wished they had signed him! He easily goes past Can who can't touch him as he is already on a yellow. Nothing comes off the move though. 

22:08 (IST)22 OCT 2017

78' Lloris again! Oxlade-Chamberlain does well to dispossess Aurier and finds Salah. The Egyptian's shot is saved by the custodian, though. You shall not pass!

22:05 (IST)22 OCT 2017

77' Substitution for Liverpool: Sturridge is on for Firmino. Boy, he looks thrilled to come on with the score being 4-1. 

22:03 (IST)22 OCT 2017

74' Spurs are happy to keep the ball and knock it about well. Davinson Sanchez, completely under the radar, has fit in extremely well. Relatively untroubled so far. 

22:01 (IST)22 OCT 2017

72' Liverpool are creating... NOT DEAD... as Milner exchanges a pass with Salah to get a shot away. Easily saved by Lloris though. 

22:00 (IST)22 OCT 2017

70' Jurgen Klopp doesn't make notes on the sideline. He ought to make a list of defensive midfielders and defenders to sign in January, and do t ASAP. That Liverpool defence is among the worst in the Premier League right now. 

21:58 (IST)22 OCT 2017

69' Substitution for Tottenham: Sissoko is on for Son.

21:56 (IST)22 OCT 2017

67' Coutinho nearly reduces the deficit. Who's there to deny him? The impeccable Hugo Lloris. Some save. If Liverpool can manage a goal here, there could be something to salvage yet... 

21:54 (IST)22 OCT 2017

65' Liverpool nearly make something happen, but Firmino isn't able to control Coutinho's pass. Spurs break -- that's new -- and nearly manage a fifth!

21:51 (IST)22 OCT 2017

62' Another corner to Spurs. They're all queueing up to score here...

21:50 (IST)22 OCT 2017

61' Liverpool try to probe the Tottenham defence, but they are so well structured. The hosts counter and get a corner. 

21:48 (IST)22 OCT 2017

60' This could get pretty nasty for Liverpool. All the joy from the Maribor game destroyed by a ruthless Tottenham side. 

21:47 (IST)22 OCT 2017

And again, Spurs don't need to do much as Liverpool's woeful defence just seem to hand them everything on the plate. Trippier's delivery is pretty good, but Mignolet flaps at it. Firmino manages to clear the shot off the line but Harry Kane is there to collect the rebound and slot it home. It's a rout already...

21:45 (IST)22 OCT 2017


21:44 (IST)22 OCT 2017

56' Kane is fouled and Tottenham win a freekick. Dangerous position this. 

21:43 (IST)22 OCT 2017

55' Aurier with a few stepovers tries to make something happen on the left. He is double-teamed by Liverpool, though. The subsequent pass is too long for Firmino. 

21:41 (IST)22 OCT 2017

53' Oxlade-Chamberlain does really well to get past Trippier. Nearly finds Salah with a cross. Corner. 

21:40 (IST)22 OCT 2017

52' Coutinho tries to wriggle free and wins a throw-in. Tottenham need to stifle the threat now. They have a comfortable lead. 

21:39 (IST)22 OCT 2017

49' Dele Alli's persistence means Liverpool are unable to break forward. Aurier gets hold of the ball and tries to cross. It takes a deflection and is out for a corner. Kane's header is off target, though. 

21:36 (IST)22 OCT 2017

47' Liverpool have started the 2nd half with purpose. But the more they attack, the more chances Spurs will have. Pochettino has all the aces now. 

21:34 (IST)22 OCT 2017

The second half is underway...

21:33 (IST)22 OCT 2017

21:21 (IST)22 OCT 2017

Phew, that was some first half. Spurs are full value of their 3-1 lead. Words cannot describe how bad Liverpool have been defensively so far. We'll be back in about 15 minutes!

21:20 (IST)22 OCT 2017

And it's half-time...

21:20 (IST)22 OCT 2017

A good set-piece delivery by Eriksen is partially clear by Matip. The second-ball deficiency comes back to haunt Liverpool, though, as Alli has time to take a shot and score. Not one tried to block him. Spurs have their two-goal cushion back!

21:18 (IST)22 OCT 2017

47+2' GOAL FOR TOTTENHAM!!! Dele Alli smashes it in!

21:18 (IST)22 OCT 2017

45+2' Can loses the ball and Alli nearly breaks through. The latter manages to make a tactical foul though. He is booked.

21:16 (IST)22 OCT 2017

Two minutes added on...

21:16 (IST)22 OCT 2017

45' Chamberlain shows excellent drive on the left, but Spurs are able to stop the move. They need to calm it a bit and keep hold of the ball. Don't have to drive forward every time. 

21:14 (IST)22 OCT 2017

43' Henderson tries to smash one in from about 25 yards. Blocked. Spurs aren't as comfortable as they were in the opening 20 minutes. 

21:13 (IST)22 OCT 2017

42' This is end to end stuff now. Trippier's cross is nearly met by an on-rushing Aurier, but for a Milner interception. He nearly sets Salah on the break. Liverpool get another corner.

21:11 (IST)22 OCT 2017

40' A poor pass by Salah nearly ends with a Tottenham counter. Liverpool, though, smother it with their front-footed approach. 

21:09 (IST)22 OCT 2017

38' Much more even game now as Liverpool have exercised some sort of control. A good cross by Milner is cleared by Tripper. Corner for Liverpool. 

21:07 (IST)22 OCT 2017

37' Harry Kane's persistence nearly pays off. He manages to outmuscle Matip and gets a shot away, it's just wide though. Spurs are still threatening on the counter at times. 

21:06 (IST)22 OCT 2017

35' Oxlade-Chamberlain's presence in midfield should help Liverpool as they now have an extra man. Spurs are losing the ball more often now. The Liverpool counter-press is working well. 

21:03 (IST)22 OCT 2017

The change for Liverpool means Matip, Gomez and Can will play in a three-man backline. Brave from Jurgen Klopp...

21:02 (IST)22 OCT 2017

32' Salah has finally found his groove and is taking on players at will. He eases past Aurier and nearly finds Firmino in the box. 

21:02 (IST)22 OCT 2017

31' Substitution for Liverpool: Oxlade-Chamberlain is on for Lovren. You can imagine the boos for Chamberlain (former Arsenal player)!

21:00 (IST)22 OCT 2017

29' Alli pierces the Liverpool defence again, and Lovren, for the umpteenth time, is barely able to react. Mignolet, this time, rightly comes out early and smothers the chance before Son can find the bottom corner. 

20:58 (IST)22 OCT 2017

27' Oxlade-Chamberlain could get a surprise entry in the first half! He could replace Lovren, meaning Gomez might play as a centre-back. More of a panic-move? Some of the Liverpool fans will be pleased if Lovren is off the pitch, though!

20:56 (IST)22 OCT 2017

Finally, Liverpool show signs of the famous geggenpress! They crowd Harry Kane and Henderson manages to fizz an exquisite pass to Salah who somehow manages to beat Lloris. Game on!
