Liverpool Beat Tottenham To Maintain Perfect Start


Liverpool made it five wins out of five as they beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the Premier League's lunch time kick-off at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Spurs have now suffered back-to-back defeats in the league this season following  their 2-1 away loss to Watford before the international break.

Liverpool have won their opening five games of a top-flight season for the third time in their history (also 1990-91 and 1978-79).

Liverpool broke the deadlock in the 39th minute through Georginio Wijnaldum whose header from a corner kick just crossed the line and was confirmed by the Goal Decision System. It was Wijnaldum's first ever Premier League away goal with what was his 55th shot on the road in the league.

In the 54th minute, Liverpool doubled their lead thanks to Roberto Firmino who took advantage of a defensive mix-up by Spurs' and tapped into the net.

Substitute, Erik Lamela, pulled a goal back for Spurs in the 93rd minute as he chested the ball before volleying from a tight angle past Alisson in goal for Liverpool.

The win saw Liverpool maintain top spot in the league table on 15 points from five games while Spurs are fifth on nine points.
