Full time: Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

Tottenham miss the chance to go to within two points of Leicester, and instead now trail the Foxes by four points ahead of their game against Southampton after being held by Liverpool. Harry Kane cancelled out Philippe Coutinho's opener to grab a point but the reaction from Mauricio Pochettino at the final whistle suggests he is disappointed with the point despite it bringing them closer to the top.

Well that is all we have time on this live text. Head over to our El Clasico live blog to follow Barcelona vs Real Madrid but until next time, goodbye.


Another chance for Spurs and Toby Alderweireld is the man, heading wide from a near-post effort. Looks like the points will be shared.

Christian Eriksen curls a free-kick wide of the Liverpool goal. The final chance? Don't bet on it.


Coutinho has been mesmeric this afternoon and he should have a second as he collects the ball 15 yards out but shoots only wide. Tottenham riding their luck. Now Lloris keeps out Henderson's drive. The hosts having a second wind here.

Goal: Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham (Harry Kane)

A goal out of nothing for Spurs and what a finish from Harry Kane. Christian Eriksen recovers the ball some a near-impossible position hooks the ball back to Kane who turns Lovren and fires the ball into the opposite corner past Mignolet.


Heung-min Son misses what must be Tottenham's best chance. He takes a pass over the top on the full but volleys wide of Mignolet's goal, from about eight yards out.


Tottenham in danger of going under here and Sturridge almost makes it two. Coutinho nips in to cut out Walker's pass to Kane and floats a cross to the back post where Sturridge just can't grow in time to keep his header down and it goes over Lloris' crossbar.


Liverpool have come alive and Daniel Sturridge senses a second but Alderweireld makes the decisive block. No sign of the intensity of this game relenting.


Goal: Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham (Philippe Coutinho)

The Premier League's best defence is sliced open and Liverpool put a dent in Tottenham's title hopes. Coutinho exchanges passes with Sturridge, ghosts into the penalty area and side-foots past Lloris.


Harry Kane floats a cross over the Liverpool defence and Alli breaks in behind but can't flick his header on target and Mignolet collects. Liverpool struggling to break out with so many players behind the ball.

Underway in the second half at Anfield. No changes at the break.


Half time: Liverpool 0-0 Tottenham

Entertaining half at Anfield. Chances for both sides, the better of them for Liverpool in the form of Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana, but Hugo Lloris has been imperious. Spurs have been impressive though Dele Alli has been very much on the edge of the contest. Leicester will start against Southampton four points clear as things stand.


Rose moving gingerly on the far touchline but looks like he will be ok to continue.


Danny Rose down after a challenge from Emre Can. Jon Moss played the advantage byt Tottenham have kicked the ball out so he can get treatment.


Kane delays his shot on goal and Liverpool survive again, but Lloris is into the action again at the other end. Lallana hooks a volley goalwards and the Spurs skipper palms the ball away.


Opening coming with greater regularity for Liverpool and now Lallana takes aim, forcing Lloris into a decent save low down to his left. Good spell this for the hosts just before the break.
