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.

Peeep peeep peeeeeep! Full time!
...
90' Two minutes will be added on...
...
88' Substitution for Spurs: Llorente is on for Kane. 
...
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. 
...
...
84' Substitution for Liverpool: Grujic is on for Can. 
...
83' Liverpool break forward, but Salah runs out of room and the move pretty much sums up Liverpool's day. Outpaced, outthought, and outperformed. 
...
81' Substitution for Spurs: Dier is on for Eriksen.
...
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. 
...
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!
...
77' Substitution for Liverpool: Sturridge is on for Firmino. Boy, he looks thrilled to come on with the score being 4-1. 
...
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. 
...
72' Liverpool are creating... NOT DEAD... as Milner exchanges a pass with Salah to get a shot away. Easily saved by Lloris though. 
...
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. 
...
69' Substitution for Tottenham: Sissoko is on for Son.
...
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... 
...
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!
...
62' Another corner to Spurs. They're all queueing up to score here...
...
61' Liverpool try to probe the Tottenham defence, but they are so well structured. The hosts counter and get a corner. 
...
60' This could get pretty nasty for Liverpool. All the joy from the Maribor game destroyed by a ruthless Tottenham side. 
...
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...
...
56' GOAL FOR TOTTENHAM!!! HARRY KANE AGAIN!
...
56' Kane is fouled and Tottenham win a freekick. Dangerous position this. 
...
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.
