Liverpool finally won a Premier League away game after Mohamed Salah’s first-half brace proved enough for the Reds to beat Tottenham 2-1 on Sunday.
Salah put Liverpool ahead with a clinical finish after 11 minutes and added another later in the half following a bad error from Tottenham defender Eric Dier, who headed the ball his way.
Between those two goals, Spurs thought they should have had a penalty for a Trent Alexander-Arnold push on Ryan Sessegnon and Antonio Conte’s side also hit the post following an Ivan Perisic header.
Tottenham were much better in the second half and created a number of early chances, with Perisic smashing another shot against the woodwork.
Spurs finally found a lifeline as substitute Dejan Kulusevski – back after a long layoff – set up Harry Kane and the England striker beat Alisson with a fine finish from a difficult angle.
The home side pushed for a late leveler but Liverpool held on for their first away win of the campaign.
Jurgen Klopp’s side climb to eighth place, while Spurs remain fourth despite the defeat.
