Liverpool had two men sent off and despite a valiant effort, were unable to survive the Tottenham onslaught, losing 2-1 in the end.
Joel Matip was the villain, scoring an own-goal in the last minute to condemn Liverpool to defeat against Spurs.
How it happened
The evening suddenly turned sour for Liverpool as Curtis Jones picked up a yellow card for a nasty challenge on Yves Bissouma, the yellow was then upgraded to a red card after referee Simon Hooper consulted the pitchside monitor.
The home side finally took the lead and it was well deserved too. James Maddison played an inch-perfect ball for Richarlison to latch onto and the Brazilian unselfishly squared the ball for Heung-min Son to tap home.
Liverpool continued to probe in the face of adversity and found a surprise equaliser before the break, when Virgil van Dijk kept a free-kick alive at the far post and his knockdown was smashed home by Gakpo.
Despite their admirable defending following Diogo Jota's sending-off, the Reds' efforts were undone by Matip, who put the ball through his own goal in the final moments.
A sweet victory and a new dawn for Spurs, who remain unbeaten after 7 games.
