This victory against spurs sees Liverpool go 38 league games without defeat as they ensured 20th win of the season after playing 21 matches. The unstoppable Reds have now accumulated 61 points after 21 leagues matches which is a record. Liverpool are the first team in Europe’s top five leagues to ever do so.
These are the best three starts in the Big 5 leagues, then those 15 ranked. LFC have broken PSG's record for Big 5, and MCFC's record for England. It's remarkable how many of these are so recent. pic.twitter.com/yBZwAEqLkj

Klopp’s men are 16-points clear on top of the Premier League with a game in hand. Son Heung-Min and substitute Giovani lo Celso wasted good chances that could ensure Spurs levelled the scores or even secure a victory at home.
FULL-TIME: A hard-fought match at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Liverpool hold out to take the points.
