Liverpool Defeat Tottenham To Maintain 100% Start
Liverpool beat Tottenham to maintain their 100% start to the season and secure victory in each of their first five league fixtures for the first time in 27 years.
Georginio Wijnaldum’s looping first-half header, awarded by goalline technology, set Jurgen Klopp’s side on their way before Roberto Firmino hammered home from close range.
Erik Lamela scored late on to set up a tense finish, but they could not create another clear chance to equalise.
The result means Spurs have suffered back-to-back league defeats for the first time since the final two fixtures of the 2015-16 season.
