Tottenham vs Liverpool | Report, and highlights of Mohamed Salah scoring nine goals in eight games recently, courtesy to a goal and a gift from Eric Dier. Harry Kane scored a goal for Spurs, although they are fourth in the Premier League. Seven points ahead of eighth-place Liverpool, who still have a game remaining.
Liverpool overcame Tottenham 2-1 in north London behind two goals from Mohamed Salah to retake the top-four place in the Premier League. Liverpool fought off a late Tottenham surge.
Jurgen Klopp’s club had lost shockingly to relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest and Leeds in their previous two league games. However, they got off to a quick start against Spurs, with in-form Salah giving them the lead after only 11 minutes.
As the Spurs started to build momentum. Alisson, the Liverpool goalkeeper. Diverted a header from Ivan Perisic onto the post. And Ryan Sessegnon had a penalty appeal for a Trent Alexander-Arnold challenge ruled away. However. The Reds scored again shortly before halftime due to a gift from Eric Dier.
Salah (40), who had just scored his ninth goal in eight games, sprinted through when the center-back misjudged a head at his own goal.
For the second time this season. Tottenham was superior after the interval. Alisson again pushed a Perisic shot over the woodwork before Harry Kane (70) scored a fantastic goal after being set up by substitute Dejan Kulusevski.
Spurs frantically sought another late goal. And Rodrigo Bentancur and Harry Kane both came close. But Liverpool held on for their first away victory in the Premier League this year to move up to eighth and within seven points of fourth-placed Spurs with a game remaining.
How Liverpool returned to the Premier League winning ways…
Tottenham vs Liverpool | Both of these teams have struggled to get going early in games this season, but Liverpool sprang into the scene. Within three minutes, Darwin Nunez forced Hugo Lloris to work hard in his 100th straight Premier League appearance for Spurs.
After angling another shot wide of the far post, the Uruguayan, who was still finding space in the left channel, got his head up and lay off for Salah to give Liverpool the lead with a deft touch and finish into the bottom corner.
The spurs were energized by the score. And four minutes later Perisic. Who was beginning up front with Kane in a 5-3-2. Came inches from a comeback when his header hit Alisson at close range and rebounded against the woodwork. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s attempt was then blocked by the Brazilian.
