    Liverpool have now managed the greatest ever start to a top-flight season in Europe. 21 games with 20 wins and a draw.

  • 94'

    FULL-TIME: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 0-1 LIVERPOOL. It is a repeat of the Champions League Final, where most of the Spurs attacks ended like tonight.

  • 93'

    Spurs come again, but yet again Alisson covers it comfortably.

  • 92'

    SUBSTITUTION: A final change for Liverpool and Shaqiri is on for Salah.

  • 90'

    We will have three minutes of time added on for stoppages.

  • 88'

    Spurs in search of a late goal but Lamela's shot is straight at Alisson.

  • 84'

    Alderweireld fouls Firmino and Liverpool have a promising free-kick. They fail to deal with effectively and Spurs clear.

  • 83'

    INCHES WIDE by Lo Celso. Liverpool are not dealing with this Spurs onslaught.

  • 82'

    SUBSTITUTION: Liverpool now remove Mane for Origi.

  • 80'

    Spurs looking the business now and build nicely, as Lo Celso sends it across the face of goal, but there is no one there!

  • 78'

    Spurs are enjoying a period of sustained possession.

  • 75'

    LUCKY LIVERPOOL! Wijnaldum is dispossessed and Spurs have their best chance, but Son sends it OVER and cannot capitalise! What a chance and so unlike Wijnaldum.

  • 72'

    After those changes Spurs are now playing to a 4-3-3 formation.

  • 69'

    SUBSTITUTION: We have a double Spurs change. Lo Celso and Lamela are on. Rose and Eriksen are off.

  • 66'

    We have a stoppage in play after a collision between Robertson and Tanganga.

  • 64'

    Tanganga does well despite losing Gomez and in the end Liverpool secure a corner.

  • 62'

    SUBSTITUTION: A change for Liverpool and Oxlade-Chamberlain is replaced by Lallana.

  • 60'

    Spurs build patiently and the final shot from Son is defected for a corner. It is easily cleared when Son is adjudged OFFSIDE!

  • 57'

    SAVE! Robertson is beaten through his legs and Van Dijk then manages the crucial tactic of delaying Alli. In the end the Aurier shot is straight at Alisson. Great work by the Dutchman!

  • 54'

    Liverpool are knocking the ball around easier now and are still searching for that second goal.

  • 51'

    Lots of activity in the Spurs penalty area after involvement from Salah, Mane and finally Alexander-Arnold, who shoots it across the face of goal.

  • 49'

    Mane concedes a free-kick after a foul on Moura, but Liverpool clear the set-piece easily.

  • 48'

    Once again the first real attack of the half come from Spurs. Henderson then concedes a free-kick after a foul on Eriksen and he is lucky not to get booked.

  • 46'

    Kick-off! We are back underway here in the second half.

  • 45'

    Spurs secure a corner and Moura gets there first, but it goes OVER!

  • 45'

    HALF-TIME: TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 0-1 LIVERPOOL. Spurs are behind at the break, but they have played a positive game. They really should have scored first playing with these tactics.

  • 44'

    We will have three minutes of time added on for stoppages.

  • 43'

    WIDE! Salah side-steps his way past Sanchez and into the Spurs area, but he pulls the shot wide. He should have scored!

  • 40'

    YELLOW! Oxlade-Chamberlain trips Moura and is in the book for his troubles.

  • 38'

    There was a check for a potential handball from Henderson, but VAR said all was ok with the goal.

  • 37'

    GOAL, LIVERPOOL, FIRMINO! (0-1) Salah offloads to Firmino after a long-throw and Firmino smashes Liverpool into the lead. Spurs got caught at the throw-in and unfortunately Tanganga was lost in the process.

  • 34'

    Salah gets away from Wicks before Eriksen makes a crucial tackle in the penalty area. Great work!

  • 33'

    Mane concedes a free-kick after fouling Tanganga. We have a brief stoppage as Tanganga receives attention.

  • 30'

    We are still goalless in this exciting game after the first 30 minutes. Van Dijk has been a busy man thus far.

  • 28'

    Oxlade-Chamberlain sends a nice long-ball towards Salah, who is flagged OFFSIDE!

  • 25'

    YELLOW! Gomez is booked after a poor and clumsy tackle on Son.

  • 23'

    SAVE! Liverpool secure another corner and despite having three men in there Van Dijk just cannot get it past Gazzaniga. GREAT WORK!

  • 22'

    Spurs build patiently and make their way towards the Liverpool goal. The final shot from Eriksen is rather tame! They start again.

  • 20'

    Alexander-Arnold wins a corner for Liverpool after a deflection off Rose. Alli eventually clears.

  • 18'

    CLOSE! Mane's cross into the area is just cleared ahead of an oncoming Salah. Good defending from Spurs.

  • 16'

    Liverpool build patiently again and then the final Alexander-Arnold cross is rushed and it fies OVER!

  • 14'

    Spurs attack again and this time Alli fires it OVER the Liverpool goal. It did hit him on the arm in the process, so VAR would have had a look anyway.

  • 13'

    Robertson sends a cross towards the Spurs goal, but it flies across the face of goal and there's no one there to meet it.

  • 11'

    Spurs have been guilty of giving the ball away far too easily in the opening stages.

  • 8'

    Spurs break on the counter after Henderson is dispossesed, but again the final shot is POOR! Alisson had it covered by the way.

  • 7'

    Mane is just testing the young Spurs debutant Tanganga, to see how far he can push him.

  • 4'

    POST! Liverpool launch a counter-attack after some good running from FIrmino following an Oxlade-Chamberlain offload. How did they not score? Spurs saved by the post and the keeper gathers.

  • 1'

    Kick-off! We are underway here in North London!

  • 1'

    Spurs secure the first corner after launching the first attack of the game. It is cleared with Salah's help.

    Welcome to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for our live coverage of this exciting English Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool.

  • 0'

    Liverpool are currently setting the pace at the top of the table and they have a game in hand over Spurs who are in sixth position, 28 points adrift.

  • 0'

    Liverpool have only dropped points once this season in the 20 Premier League games that they have played and that is when they were held to a 1-1 draw against Manchester United, at Old Trafford in October.

  • 0'

    Spurs on the other hand have only recorded eight wins in their 21 league games and that was also a reason why they parted ways with their former manager Mauricio Pochettino.

  • 0'

    Their new manager Jose Mourinho has had a mixed start to his campaign, but he always relishes an encounter with The Reds and even better when he is the host.

  • 0'

    This will be the first encounter between Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp, since the Portuguese was dismissed as Manchester United manager following a 3-1 defeat at Anfield in December 2018.
