Liverpool reignited their title defence by ending a five-match winless run in the Premier League with a dominant win at Tottenham.
Roberto Firmino tapped the Reds ahead on the stroke of half-time when Hugo Lloris and Eric Dier hesitated in dealing with Sadio Mane’s low cross.
Trent Alexander-Arnold drilled in the second before Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s stunner gave Spurs a glimmer of hope.
But Mane lashed the ball home to seal the win and move Liverpool into fourth.
Spurs, who stay sixth after trailing Liverpool by a point going into the game, saw their miserable evening compounded by striker Harry Kane suffering an ankle injury.
The England captain, who has a history of ankle problems, was withdrawn at half-time as a result of the problem.
