Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham: Henderson strike cancel out Kane opener as Mo Salah penalty secure vital win and ‘Six Points’ clear on top of the table for the Reds

Liverpool stay top of the Premier League, now six points clear of Manchester City. They’re up against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday before returning to league action against Aston Villa on the weekend.

As for Spurs, their Merseyside adventure continues next Sunday against Everton. They’re now 11th, already eight points off the top four.

A Salah penalty ensures Liverpool make it 12 Anfield wins in a row and re-extend their lead at the top of the table to six points with a 2-1 victory over Spurs.

Kane put the visitors ahead in the first minute, but this only angered Liverpool and they embarked on a thoroughly dominant performance that saw Gazzaniga make numerous vital saves to keep Spurs in the game.

But a Rose error allowed Henderson to equalise before Mane won a penalty that Salah converted to seal the win.

Harry Kane scored after 47 seconds at Anfield and Jurgen Klopp’s men, for all their dominance of the ball, struggled to cope with Tottenham’s fast breaks and the irrepressible Son Heung-min.

Son was instrumental in creating the opener for the in-form Kane, who has scored five goals in his last five games for club and country, and Liverpool found Paulo Gazzaniga at his best in the Spurs goal as they pressed hard for an equaliser.

Tottenham defended bravely as Liverpool chased a winner, but Mane was caught by Aurier with 15 minutes left and the referee pointed to the spot without hesitation.

Salah rattled a clinical spot-kick past Gazzaniga and the Reds shut the door thereafter, leaving Spurs with one point from their last three league games.
