Liverpool FC made the perfect start when Mohamed Salah broke the deadlock from the penalty spot in the second minute after Moussa Sissoko was penalised for handling the ball inside his own area.
Substitute Divock Origi doubled Liverpool FC’s lead in the 87th minute with a precise finish after Tottenham struggled to find a way past the Reds defence.
Liverpool FC number one Alisson Becker was particularly impressed as the Brazilian shot stopper managed to keep Son Heung-min and Christian Eriksen at bay.
