It’s now five wins from five in the Premier League for Liverpool, who continue to exude dominance – this time against their toughest opponents this season, Tottenham
The Reds were vibrant, dangerous and energetic from the first whistle. On the other hand, Spurs looked exhausted from the get-go, off the pace and second to everything. Wijnaldum opened the scoring with a header that needed goal line technology to confirm, and Firmino doubled their advantage after 54 minutes when he scored after Vertonghen turned Mane’s cross on to his own post.
Liverpool were in total control for most of the game. While Van Dijk ruled the defence, the Reds were dominant in midfield, the pace of Mane and the guile of Firmino were simply too much for Spurs.
