Liverpool made a meal of their three-goal lead as they took on Tottenham at Anfield, with a wild second half playing out for a 4-3 victory. Goals from Curtis Jones and Luis Diaz in the first five minutes gave Liverpool an early two-goal lead, before Mo Salah converted a penalty on his 300th appearance for the club. Harry Kane pulled one back for Tottenham just before half time, but it was Heung-min Son who equalised in the 77th minute. Richarlison then looked to have secured a point for Spurs with a stoppage-time equaliser, only for Diogo Jota to score a dramatic winner for Liverpool in the fourth minute of added time.
