Liverpool brought to a stop their two-game losing run in the Premier League, as they edged North London outfit Tottenham Hotspurs 2-1 in Sunday’s epic fixture.
Two first half goals from Egyptian star Mo Salah was more than enough to give the Reds the three points, though Harry Kane netted what proved to be a consolation as Antonio Conte’s men threatened a comeback.
