EPL: Liverpool end poor run with win at Tottenham

Liverpool

Liverpool reignited their title defence by ending a five-match winless run in the Premier League with a dominant win at Tottenham.

Roberto Firmino tapped the Reds ahead on the stroke of half-time when Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier hesitated in dealing with Sadio Mane’s low cross.

But Mane lashed the ball home to seal the win and move Liverpool into fourth.

Spurs, who stay sixth after trailing Liverpool by a point going into the game, saw their miserable evening compounded by striker Harry Kane suffering an ankle injury.

The England captain, who has a history of ankle problems, was withdrawn at half-time as a result of the problem.
