Liverpool 3 Vs Tottenham Hotspur 2


José Reina was unable to build on his impressive display at Wigan due to a calf injury but with Philippe Coutinho again a bundle of energy and invention and Suárez lethal, the reds played in the same impressive fashion that delivered the 4-0 win at Wigan.

Spurs were undone by a fine Liverpool attack. Coutinho released José Enrique once with a flick, then for a second time with a deft pass into the area. The Spanish left-back read Suárez's angled run across the penalty area superbly, threading the ball behind Dawson for the Uruguayan to finish inside Spurs near post with the outside of his right foot.

Liverpool contained Bale for the opening 35 minutes but Gylfi Sigurdsson should have levelled when sent clear by the Welshman. The midfielder, who rejected a move to the reds in the summer, shot wide from the edge of the area.

Bale sent in an inviting cross from the right and Jan Vertonghen stole in ahead of Glen Johnson to steer a header into the bottom corner. Liverpool were denied a penalty when Walker grabbed Coutinho inside the area.

Shortly after the restart Bale and Vertonghen combined again when Spurs were awarded a dubious free-kick when Lucas Leiva touched the face of Bale. He then whipped the free-kick into the heart of the reds area. Jamie Carragher, making his 500th Premier League appearance, won the initial header but a deflection off Agger and a slip by Johnson teed up Vertonghen for his second.

For reasons Walker sent an aimless pass towards his own goal from the halfway line. Lloris was in trouble but failed to apply a convincing touch and allowed Stewart Downing to advance on goal and finish low between Vertonghen's legs.

Then the Spurs keeper punched away a Gerrard free-kick only for it to return via a dreadful touch by Defoe. Oliver had no hesitation in pointing to the spot and Gerrard sent Lloris the wrong way to snap up all 3 points.
