Jurgen Klopp became even more prepared to clear Jose Mourinho’s doubts who said the last time he was beaten that his team played better but lost to a weaker team.
After a run of five league games without a win – four of those without a goal Liverpool moved back into the top four as they discovered their cutting edge in style at the expense of an uninspiring Spurs.
Liverpool opened the scoring in the first 43 minutes of the first half with Brazilian forward on target through Sadio Mane. Sadio Mane almost scored the second two minutes into the second half but was kept out by Lloris, but it was not properly handled as the ball came to Trent Alexander-Arnold, who finished emphatically.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg opened his scoring record with Spurs through a 20-yard strike to give Jose Mourinho’s side hope for coming back. Mohamed Salah saw a goal disallowed by VAR for handball against Firmino in the build-up before Mane sealed the victory.
