Which Premier League side has the most pro-Brexit supporters? Newsweek

Well that is all we have time for on this Premier League live blog. We're back with action from the Carabao Cup in mid-week, but until then it is goodbye.


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.

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.
