Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool - as it happened

Join us for live coverage of the Premier League clash between Tottenham and Liverpool from the Tottenham Hotspur stadium. Will Liverpool extend their lead at the top?

FT: Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool!!! It's over at Tottenham! Liverpool win here thanks to Firmino's goal in the 37th minute. The away side were comfortable for most of it, but Spurs were very dangerous after the double change. Son and then Lo Celso missed glorious opportunities to level it and Mourinho will be left to rue his side's poor finishing. That's all from us, thanks for your company and see you again soon!
Liverpool have the ball and are keeping it on the far side.
Son hits from outside the box after cutting inside and Alisson catches easily.
Liverpool sub: Shaqiri on for Salah.
Three extra minutes. Lamela runs inside the box and falls and loses control of the ball under double coverage. Gomez pulls him up as he thinks Lamela is diving and that provokes an angry reaction from the Spurs man.
Origi!!!! Brilliant touches and turns to go past two or three defenders!! His finish is very weak though.
Lamela!!! Alli feeds Lamela and the Argentine shoots to Alisson's left. A fairly comfortable save in the end.
Long punt for Son and Alisson gets there first. Spurs the much better team since the double sub.
Lamela fouls Lallana and he and the crowd are not best pleased with the decision.
If you can't take your chances, you can't win. Liverpool have been living dangerously for the last 10-15 minutes.
Lo Celso!!!!!!! How did that not go in??? Aurier's cross from the far side is sensational and Lo Celso slides in at the far post, but somehow turns it wide of the other post. That was a certain goal! Mourinho went down on his knee's laughing where Klopp was absolutely fuming with his team's defence.
Liverpool sub: Origi on for Mane.
Lo Celso sends on across the box after being played in on the far side, but Lamela can't get on the end of it.
Spurs trying and trying, but they lack the killer touch in the final third. Someone like Harry Kane, for example.
That's why a one goal lead is never enough.
What a miss by Son!! Wijnaldum has his pocket picked by Lo Celso, Moura picks up the ball 25 yards from goal and passes to Son who inexplicably blazes over! Their best chance by a distance.
Tanganga is down heree. He seems to have a problem with his left foot.
Liverpool are just passing the ball amongst themselves patiently waiting for the opportunity to score a second. They are in no rush to get another.
Tottenham double sub: Lo Celso and Lamela on, Rose and Eriksen make way.
Firmino is unable to divert Mane's pass towards goal from inside the Spurs area.
What a save by Gazzaniga to prevent Mane's header from going in! However, Robertson made a terrible challenge on Tanganga and they were both down. It should have been a yellow for the Liverpool man.
Mane!!! Lovely play again by Liverpool as Mane beats a defender before Robertson's cross is blocked by Alderweireld for a corner.
Liverpool sub: Lallana replaces the Ox.
Spurs are caught offside from the set piece.
Son hits wide after receiving a cross field pass from Eriksen. It takes a deflection so it's a corner. Spurs are throwing more bodies forward. now.
Firmino is denied by Gazzaniga! His strike was straight at him.
Wonderful play by Liverpool!! Firmino passes to Mane and his one-two so nearly comes off.
Great defence by Van Dijk to slide in and tackle Alli just as he was about to shoot! On the rebound, Spurs shoot and see a shot saved.
Liverpool looking very comfortable at the moment. Robertson is unable to get on the end of a long pass and it's a goal kick for the home side.
Liverpool on top once again, but no great chances up to now.
Liverpool attack again through Salah, he finds Mane, but Salah steps out the way when Mane passes it back to him and TAA hooks it wide.
Spurs get a free-kick, but it's terrible.
Moura shoots wide and claims he was fouled by Henderson, but not enough.
Wlecome back, back underway here!!
HT: Spurs 0-1 Liverpool!! Half-time here and the away side have been much the better. They had a great double chance after just two minutes through Firmino and the Ox and when it looked they had weathered the storm, Liverpool scored eight minutes before the break through Firmino after a lovely turn by Salah. However, it should have been a Spurs throw, not a Liverpool one. Spurs have had one or two chances, but otherwise they've done next to nothing. Back with more in 10 minutes!
The Ox fires wide of the goal now in the dying seconds of stoppage time.
Three extra minutes and Moura heads over.
A Spurs cross from the far side is headed by Moura onto the defender for a corner,
I think the TV director is trying to say that it should have been a Spurs throw prior to the goal as the ball touched Mane last.
Salah!!! He hits wide of the goal!!
The Ox is booked for a foul on Moura.
There was a VAR check to see whether the ball touches Henderson's arm. It was difficult to tell and the goal is confirmed.
Firmino scores!!! It's a brilliant goal, but Salah makes it out of nothing!! A throw in is flicked on by Firmino, the ball then hits Alderweireld and Henderson. The ball breaks to Salah who turns with his back to goal and feeds Firmino. The Brazilian then fires across the goalie into the net.
Liverpool are on top, but Spurs seem to have weathered the early storm. I think this will remain goalless until HT.
Mane!!! He volleys a cutback from inside the box which goes wide.
Liverpool threaten again, but they are unable to get a shot off.
Tanganga has just gone to the touchline after getting some quick treatment.
Tanganga dispossesses Mane before the Senegalese brings him down at midfield.
Attempts: 4-4, on target: 1-2.
Where's Alisson going?? A Spurs clearance sees Alisson run 40 yards out of his goal to clear despite Joe Gomez being in the area to clear.
Salah gets the ball from the Ox, but he's fractionally offside.
Spurs get a corner, it's half cleared and then Aurier tries to find Sanchez with a backheel, but is unable to.
Gomez booked for fouling Son and breaking down a promising attack.
What a save!!! Liverpool win a corner, Salah controls the ball in the box, before passing for Henderson. His cross finds Van Dijk whose shot is brilliantly saved! I think he was offside though.
Moura passes for Erikssen and his shot all along the ground from just outside the D is easily saved by Alisson!
The natives are getting restless as they can see Liverpool are much the better team here.
Liverpool win a corner, but it is taken short and they waste it.
Pinball in the Spurs box, but Mourinho's men finally clear. Liverpool on top.
Liverpool attack, but TAA's cross is very poor.
Chance for Spurs!!! Alli gets on the end of a long ball, the ball is knocked against his arm from close range by TAA before he fires over! It should have been a corner as it took a deflection, but it would have been disallowed for handball had he scored.
Rose loses the ball on this near side, Liverpool attack and then Robertson's cross on the far side beats everyone.
Salah sends a pass in for Sadio Mane, but he can't get there before Gazzaniga does. Both teams attacking.
Liverpool have a free-kick here 30 yards from goal. It's easily dealt with though.
Son gets the ball 40 yards oyut after a defensive error, the South Korean runs towards the D as the defence back off and then he hits off target.
Lucas Moura finds his way round Joe Gomez and then shoots wide!
What a start to this game.
Double chance for Liverpool!!! How did that not go in? Brilliant play on this near side, Firmino gets the ball in the box, turns past Eriksen and then Tanganga saves his shot on the line! On the rebound, Firmino finds the Ox whose strike hits the post.
End to end start and Dele Alli wins a corner off Gomez after a long ball to Moura was only half cleared.
Liverpool get us going from left to right! Both teams in their usual kits.
The players make their way out here! There's a brilliant atmosphere here. It's dry for now.
It's 11 degrees and light rain in Tottenham this evening.
8th v 1st. 30pts v 58pts. Ref: Martin Atkinson, VAR: Craig Pawson.
It was 2-1 to Liverpool when the two teams met earlier in the season. Gazzaniga made several tremendous saves to deny Klopp's men after Kane's first minute strike, but Liverpool scored twice in the second half.
For Spurs, Vertonghen, Dier and Sessegnon are out from the cup tie at Middlesbrough which ended 1-1. Tanganga, Rose and Sanchez in.
For Spurs, Japhet Tanganga makes his Premier League debut. He is a 20 year-old defender born in Hackney. He played in the Carabao tie at Colchester back in September.
Liverpool make one change from the Premier League victory over Sheff Utd nine days ago. The Ox is in for Milner.
Liverpool XI: Alisson (GK); Robertson, Van Dijk, Gomez, Alexander-Arnold; the Ox, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Mane, Firmino and Salah.
Tottenham XI: Gazzaniga (GK); Tanganga, Alderweireld, Sanchez; Rose, Eriksen, Winks, Aurier; Alli, Son and Moura.
