Full time: Tottenham 4-1 Liverpool

A game which has highlights the qualities and problems within these two sides.

For Tottenham, they have the vitality and verve to beat any side on the planet and in Harry Kane the most deadly forward in the Premier League, certainly.

But Liverpool face a familiar tale of defensive woe and have conceded four goals when it could have been many, many more.

Two added minutes at Wembley.

Harry Kane limps off with a hamstring injury and that is a worry, with Manchester United to come next weekend. We wait to see what comes of that.

Liverpool fans have made an early start on their way back home. What a horrible day it has been for the Merseyside pair, with Arsenal having beaten Everton earlier today.

The stats continue. This is not looking good for Jurgen Klopp.

Give this to Jurgen Klopp. But I am sure he'll find a way to overlook it.

For all Klopp's shortcomings, this would be mad.

Daniel Sturridge on for Roberto Firmino as Liverpool hunt down a consolation goal. And that is all it would be at this stage.

The inquest over this Liverpool display has very much begun and the focus is once again on the back-line, which including Simon Mignolet has been central to Tottenham's success this afternoon.

For me, the lowest common denominator is Jurgen Klopp who has either brought these players, kept faith in them or tactically set them up in the wrong way. Either way, the much-heralded German coach needs to be central to any criticism of this Liverpool display.

WHAT A SAVE! Another fine save from Hugo Lloris as Philippe Coutinho shoots left-footed from the edge of the box and the France captain dives to his right and turns the ball onto the crossbar.

Harry Kane celebrates his second and Tottenham's fourth.

A Premier League record 80,827 at Wembley to watch Tottenham destroy Liverpool this afternoon, and with over a quarter of the game to go you wonder how much this might be for the hosts. Though the after-affects from the game in Madrid might soon play a role.

GOAL! Tottenham 4-1 Liverpool (Harry Kane)

Simon Mignolet is the latest man from the Liverpool backline to hang their head in shame. The Belgian flaps at Eriksen's free-kick and though Firmino clears off the line when the loose ball falls to Vertonghen, Kane is on hand to fire home from the rebound.

Dele Alli celebrates restoring Tottenham's two-goal lead.

Pressure from both sides at the start of this second half. Next goal is critical to the outcome of this one.

Second half under way at Wembley. No further changes.

Half time: Tottenham 3-1 Liverpool

Thrilling half of Premier League football. Tottenham cut Liverpool apart in the opening 12 minutes and scored twice through Kane and Son but the visitors are not out of this one yet.

Mohamed Salah gave the Reds hope but Dele Alli's goal on the stroke of half time may have taken this game away from the visitors. Cracking 45 minutes and hopefully there is more to come.

GOAL! Tottenham 3-1 Liverpool (Dele Alli)

Spurs claim what could be a critical third goal in the context of this game. Liverpool don't clear a harmless Tottenham free-kick and the ball falls Alli's way and he volleys into the net. That might be the game.

Two added minutes at Wembley. Please don't let it end.

Son Heung-Ming thumps home to deliver Spurs their second goal.

Oxlade-Chamberlain has gone to the left, with Coutinho slotting into a midfield three. Milner has gone to right-back meanwhile and it is making Liverpool appear far more secure. But is the damage already done?

Joel Matip is the latest Liverpool defender to embarrass himself, missing a header and allowing Kane to run with the ball again. The Cameroon defender gets back but Kane gets his shot away, but he misses the target.

Mo Salah pulls one back for Liverpool.

Kane gets free again and you're just waiting for the net to bulge, but the ball hits Lovren and Liverpool survive.

Change for Liverpool; Lovren off and Oxlade-Chamberlain on.

Son could have made it three there as he escapes in behind Lovren, but he can't get enough contact and Mignolet gathers gratefully.

Mo Salah causing plenty of problems for Tottenham and he forces Lloris into a save - albeit a comfortable one - from Coutinho's cross. This game has turned on its head somewhat since the goal.

GOAL! Tottenham 2-1 Liverpool (Mohamed Salah)

Game on at Wembley. Harry Kane is bundled to the floor/goes to ground too easy and Liverpool play on. Jordan Henderson plays a ball in behind Tottenham and Salah breaks in behind and via a scruffy finish finds the net.

Tottenham are all over Liverpool here, who look like they're left their hearts and legs in Slovenia. Son breaks again from a lovely touch from Kane but Matip cuts out the South Korean's pass. Jurgen Klopp remains unmoved by the touchline, but he must act on this shambles.

OFF THE BAR! Nearly three for Tottenham. Eriksen clips a quickly-taken free kick to Son who takes the ball in his stride and his strike beats Mignolet but slams against the crossbar.

GOAL! Tottenham 2-0 Liverpool (Son Heung-Min)

More woe for Dejan Lovren. The Croatian throws himself at a Lloris throw and gets nowhere near it. Kane turns away into the space and he delivers a peach of a cross for Son who on the run fires past Mignolet.

Harry Kane gives Tottenham a very early lead against Liverpool.

Another look at that Tottenham goal and it is some awful defending from Liverpool and in particular Dejan Lovren, which allows Harry Kane to go clear. Have to wonder when the penny will drop with Jurgen Klopp.

GOAL! Tottenham 1-0 Liverpool (Harry Kane)

Spurs hit the front with their first attack and it is another mess for Liverpool at the back. Lovren is inexplicably trying to pay offside from a throw in and it allows Kane to break in behind. He turns past the onrushing Mignolet and keeps his composure to find the empty net.

Serge Aurier vs Mohamed Salah on the right-side. That duel could hold the key to this game. The Frenchman was good going forward at Real Madrid but conceded the penalty which gave the hosts the leveller.

Teams are out at a sun-decked Wembley. Kick-off on the way.

So with kick-off fast approaching, what will the result be today?

Much change at full-back for Tottenham this season.

Argentina legend Maradonna is at Wembley this afternoon, to watch over his former teammate Mauricio Pochettino. He could have joined Spurs many moons ago of course, during Ossie Ardiles' spell in charge.

Mauricio Pochettino reveals that Eric Dier has been ill since Friday, hence why he has been left on the bench this afternoon.

For who is today's game bigger?

Tottenham have ambitions to win the title and having claimed their first Premier League win at Wembley they will hope their struggles under the arch are over.

Liverpool have showed on regular occasions they can keep pace with the big six - they have won nine out of 21 during Klopp's reign, the most of any side - but today is another big test of their fragile back-four.

Full time from Goodison Park and Arsenal have thrashed Everton to leave Ronald Koeman on the brink on Merseyside. Go here to catch up with each of the seven goals in the early kick-off.

Jurgen Klopp updates on Georginio Wijnaldum's knee injury which rules him out of today's game.

Gini got a knock on his knee yesterday. It's nothing serious but very painful," said Klopp. "We couldn't do it overnight. It's not a big thing but the time was too short from yesterday to today, so he's not even involved in the squad.

Toby Alderweireld is making his 100th Tottenham appearance this afternoon. But can he keep out a Liverpool attack which netted seven times in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Liverpool's players arrive at Wembley.

Liverpool make one change from the draw with Manchester United, as Georginio Wijnaldum is kept out with a knee problem as James Milner starts.

Tottenham make two changes from the draw at Real Madrid. Dele Alli returns after serving his European suspension, while Son Heung-Min replaces Moussa Sissoko.

And now the Tottenham side..

The Liverpool team to face Spurs is in from Wembley...

These two sides have scored over 50 times already this season so surely we should have a goal-fest on our hands this afternoon? Liverpool plundered seven in mid-week, while Tottenham have the most potent striker in the Premier League in Harry Kane in their artillery. Spurs had the best defence in the top flight last term, but the Reds of course have had a heap of issues at the back.

Liverpool have arrived at Wembley.

Team news will be with us at around 3pm, but how might both sides line-up?

Tottenham have Danny Rose fit again and Erik Lamela ready to return but Mousa Dembele and Victor Wanyama are both missing.

Liverpool are without Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana. Andrew Robertson could be recalled while Joe Gomez is expected to revert to right-back. Simon Mignolet will replace Loris Karius.

Before we begin to build-up to this game a word that we are into the second half of our early game, Everton vs Arsenal. Follow the second 45 minutes here, after what was an intriguing first period.

One of the games of any Premier League season sees Tottenham host Liverpool at Wembley. Both sides have the capacity to thrill this afternoon and we could be in store for a classic.

Spurs went to Real Madrid in mid-week and went toe-to-toe with with 12-time European champions, coming away with a 1-1 draw. Liverpool meanwhile had an altogether different experience in the Champions League, beating Maribor 7-0 in the biggest away win recorded by a British side in the competitions's history.

All the team news and build-up ahead of the 4pm kick-off on the way.
