  1. Goodnight

    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Well, that was another entertaining night. I thank you for your company, but must now bid you goodnight.

    Let's do it again tomorrow. Night.

  2. Manager reaction

    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe, speaking to BBC Sport: "It was important for us tonight to win the game, Tottenham have been on a great run. It was great movement from Mario in the six-yard box. I hope it can be a springboard, he is training hard. The last couple of weeks he's been ill and had gashes on his feet so couldn't get his boots on.

  3. Manager reaction

    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Liverpool assistant manager Colin Pascoe, speaking to BT Sport: "Brendan had to shoot off to catch a plane. Tottenham have been on a great run, it was two good teams but the way we came through was fantastic. Mario has been working hard in training and for the last couple of weeks he's been ill so it's great that he scored the winner. Steven Gerrard felt his hamstring and felt he had to come off. It was important to win tonight, it was a great win and we deserved it."

  4. Manager reaction

    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Mauricio Pochettino

    Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "We are disappointed with the result because I think one point would have been fair for both teams. It was a great game, we played well but this is football. The players are very disappointed, sad and tired but we have to accept football is like this. I am proud of the effort and we have to look forward. The only thing we need to improve, in the first half we gave Liverpool some chances and made some mistakes. We deserved more from this game."

  5. How's stat?!

    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    Here's the key stats from tonight:

    • Harry Kane scored his 23rd goal of the season in all competitions. For teams in the top four English tiers, only Eoin Doyle (25) has more.
    • The top scorers in 2015 across the top five European leagues are Lionel Messi and Harry Kane (8 each).
    • Kane has scored and assisted in the same Premier League game for the second time, after doing so against Chelsea on New Year's Day.
    • Spurs have now conceded seven Premier League penalties this season; two more than any other side.
    • This fixture has now seen more goals than any other in the Premier League era (134).
    • Mario Balotelli scored his first Premier League goal of the season with his 48th shot. It was his first goal in the English top-flight since November 2012 (Man City v Wigan).
    • The Reds have lost just one of their last 21 Premier League home matches against Spurs (W14, D6, L1).

    Many thanks to opta for these.

    Dave Fassam: Not just one inspired sub, Lallana to Balotelli, a goal made from the bench. #BrilliantBrendanRodgers

    Abu Jawadh: I am more impressed and grateful to see Emre Can developing so well to Liverpool than seeing Ballo scoring the winning goal.

    Jordan Henderson

    Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson, speaking to BT Sport: "We've got momentum, we've been playing some great stuff. We showed great character tonight, stuck at it and got three points at the end. I'm sure Mario will be smiling in the dressing room. He worked hard when he came on and got a goal for the team. Hopefully we can kick on now."

    Liverpool defender Emre Can, speaking to BT Sport: "It was a very important game for us and I think we deserved to win."

  24. Post update

    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham

    BBC Sport chief football writer Phil McNulty at Anfield

    "Inspired substitution or desperate punt? No-one inside Anfield (apart from the Spurs fans) cares as Liverpool have the lead for the third time through Mario Balotelli's first Premier League goal for the club. As we said earlier - law of averages dictated it would happen sometime."

  25. Post update

    Tottenham are going long now. Which is fine, they need a goal. Just getting that in there so Mauricio doesn't produce any LvG-style dossiers. Spurs are getting frustrated now and Paulinho becomes the fifth player to be booked as he brings down Adam Lallana.

    It worked for Mitchell Johnson, now it's working for Mario Balotelli.

    A figure of fun, grows a tash, and an instant, overnight hero.

    "Balotelli is in the right place at the right time - in the six-yard box where all great strikers should be. That is the point and allows him to get a little tap-in from Adam Lallana's cross."

  31. GOAL

    Liverpool 3-2 Tottenham - Mario Balotelli

    That's all he needed - a moustache and he's a new man. A goalscoring hero!

    Mario Balotelli scores what might be the winner when he sidefoots home from six yards after being teed up by Adam Lallana's low cross. Never in doubt.

    Mario Balotelli
  32. Post update

    Daniel Sturridge

    "Good effort from Daniel Sturridge tonight on his first start since the end of August. Mario Balotelli is on - not exactly to unanimous approval - but perhaps the law of average will work in favour of Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers."

  38. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    John Hartson

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "Tottenham have hung in there and kept going and pegged Liverpool back twice. That's great spirit Pochettino has got in this side."

  39. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    There's a delay to the action while Kyle Walker receives treatment for a facial injury sustained in a tangle with Emre Can. On the sidelines, Mauricio Pochettino pulls his snood over his face and his substitutes sit giggling. Who's let one go?

  40. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Daniel Sturridge's impressive return to the starting line-up comes to an end. Mario Balotelli, sporting a new tash, is on in his place.

  41. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    I'm fairly sure I heard a stat before that said no team in Premier League history has scored more late goals than Spurs have this season. One for Liverpool to bear in mind.

  42. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Philippe Coutinho is beginning to grow into this game. As it becomes ever more stretched, his cute throughballs are becoming increasingly dangerous. He put Daniel Sturridge through earlier and now he slides in Alberto Moreno but the full-back's angled, low shot is saved at his near post by Hugo Lloris.

  43. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Jordon Ibe hasn't been as effective in the second half. The minute he picks up the ball, there are three people round him. A compliment to his first-half display.

    Jordan Ibe
  44. SUBSTITUTION

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Steven Gerrard's hurt his hamstring and has to make way. On comes Dejan Lovren. For Spurs, it's Paulinho for Ryan Mason.

  45. PENALTY APPEAL

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Eric Dier is a brave boy. And a lucky one. He dives in on Daniel Sturridge in the penalty box and the striker goes down. Luckily for him, he wins the ball. Anfield didn't think he did though.

    "Spurs have made a real habit of going the distance this season so it is no surprise to see them respond so robustly to Liverpool taking the lead for the second time. Liverpool are playing well but Mauricio Pochettino has put some real resilience into his team."

  49. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham - Mousa Dembele

    John Hartson

    BBC Radio 5 live

    On the goal: "The ball comes off his hip, not his hand. It is perfectly good goal and what another great response from Tottenham. But the free-kick came from a foul by Gerrard on Kane that when people see it many will think it should not have been given."

  50. Post update

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham

    Liverpool's turn to flood forward and Lazar Markovic rather wastes a two-on-two opportunity when he drags the ball wide. Why didn't he take the ball into the box and commit an exposed Danny Rose?

  51. GOAL

    Liverpool 2-2 Tottenham - Mousa Dembele

    Don't nip to the toilet... you might miss a goal. It's now 2-2, and parity is deserved.

    Christian Eriksen's wonderful, curling free-kick is beaten clear at his near post by Simon Mignolet. Harry Kane picks up the rebound and scuffs it back into the six-yard box where Mousa Dembele bundles home.

    Replays showed Kane might have been in an offside position when Mignolet parried the free-kick. Tight, but he was just off.

    Mousa Dembele
  52. YELLOW CARD

    Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham

    Steven Gerrard flattens Harry Kane with a strong tackle, but one which ends with him winning the ball. Still, Phil Dowd books the skipper. Tottenham with a free-kick 35 yards out.

    Jordon Ibe (left) and Danny Rose

    Michael Louw: Danny Rose is such a weak link. Tottenham have to do something about it because he makes big mistakes far too often.

  64. Post update

    Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

    Tottenham are probing away in the final third, looking for the intricate passes which will open up Liverpool once again. And while Liverpool's defence is packed with bodies, it does look a little statuesque at times. Only Martin Skrtel seems alert to the clever passes.

    A patient start from both sides in the early stages of the second half. You just sense it will spring into life at any minute though.

    Chris from Portland not really making friends with his suggestion that Spurs are a one-man team.

    From Gareth in Bexhill on Sea: Re: Chris from Portland. On the contrary Chris, Kane has had great support from the likes of Eriksen, Mason, Lamela, Bentaleb not to mention the solid displays from the likes of Dier. We're a better team across the pitch than we were with Bale.

    Matt Read, Torquay: Spurs massively improved over the season. Kane is quite exceptional. Chris from Portland says one man team. What about Liverpool and Saurez ? Or even Liverpool and sturridge. Teams are built around great players!

    The game is quite stretched now - first Jordon Ibe running into the box and then a cul-de-sac, before Harry Kane picks up the ball and drives forward but his attempt to switch play ends in him giving the ball away. It was easily a 22-yard pass he tried. Mark that one down, Louis.

  91. Post update

    Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

    Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham - Harry Kane

    Who else? The boy's on fire.

    It's a lovely worked goal to bring Spurs level, with Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela linking up on the edge of the box and the latter playing through a cute ball. It's too clever for Mamadou Sakho who gets in a tangle and falls over, allowing Harry Kane time to pick his spot and bury the ball past Simon Mignolet from 12 yards. All square.

    Liverpool 1-0 Tottenham - Lazar Markovic

    Liverpool have lift-off. It's all a bit route one, but the Reds don't mind.

    After Harry Kane is robbed in the penalty area, Simon Mignolet launches a long goal-kick forward and Daniel Sturridge controls it but loses it under pressure from Jan Vertonghen. The loose ball runs to Lazar Markovic who drives towards the edge of the box and puts a low shot across Hugo Lloris and into the back of the net. Should the keeper have saved it? Possibly.

    "Liverpool's first offer of £70,000 a week was more than double the 20-year-old forward's current salary, and they have now increased that offer significantly.

    "While sums of £80,000, £90,000 or £100,000 a week represent a jaw-dropping amount of money to most people, Sterling is the club's top scorer this season and creator of the most chances. Captain Steven Gerrard earns around £150,000 per week, while Glen Johnson is on more than £110,000, and neither can claim to have been anywhere near as influential as Sterling this season."

    Off the pitch, Liverpool have been busy negotiating a new deal for Raheem Sterling. The exact figures aren't known, but Brendan Rodgers described the offer as "incredible".

    It's fair to say Liverpool are a bit of a bogey team for Tottenham. The Reds are looking for their fifth consecutive win over Tottenham, having lost just one of their last 20 Premier League home matches against Spurs (W13, D6, L1).

    Brendan Rodgers's men are also unbeaten in their last six league games at Anfield (W3, D3), and are the only unbeaten team in the top flight in 2015.

    Aside from a league defeat against Spurs at Anfield in 2011, the last time the north London side left victorious was in 1993. Some of the players involved that day are a real blast from the past: Vinny Samways, Jason Dozzell and Gordon Durie for Spurs and, for Liverpool, David Burrows, Mark Walters and Ronnie Whelan.

    So, Daniel Sturridge starts for Liverpool tonight. It's the clash of England's two best young strikers, but who would Brendan Rodgers prefer to have? His own man, or Harry Kane.

    Naturally, he went for Sturridge: "For me there's not anyone better than Daniel Sturridge. He's got everything in his game if he's playing consistently.

    "His goalscoring record, his pace, his power, he's got everything and as an English striker there's no-one better than him."

    "We need to try always hard on the training ground and now maybe the work pays off at the present. But we have to be careful to keep working and looking forward as we have a lot of tough games and Liverpool is a very, very tough game.

    It's not just Tottenham who are harvesting English talent, because Liverpool have some bright young things of their own. We all know plenty about Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge, but there's a new flying forward in town... and he goes by the name of Jordon Ibe.

    The 19-year-old made only his second league start for the Reds in Saturday's drawn Merseyside derby and drew some high praise from his manager, Brendan Rodgers.

    "I've just been waiting to put Jordon in," said Rodgers. "I had no qualms about putting him in, it was a brilliant performance.

    "He was unfortunate not to score but he's got a wonderful temperament and technique and tactically he was very, very good coming into that system, knowing when to go forward and when to tuck in."

    "He is playing like a world-class centre forward. He is so clever, he can play off the front man in the number 10 role - collecting the ball from the midfield - and he can play as a number nine. We saw him bully Gary Cahill and John Terry and the goals that he scores are brilliant. The header he scored against Arsenal was textbook, Alan Shearer would have been proud of it.

    How good the Spurs striker is, will be or could be is a fine talking point. But it appears - thanks to this info - that is ahead of the curve for his tender age of 21.

    Robbie Fowler

    Kane's 12 goals in 20 Premier League games give him a favourable scoring rate when compared to other young guns down the years, ahead of Michael Owen, Michael Bridges and Robbie Fowler etc.

    We've got a star on our hands.

  159. The perfect English striker

    Alan Shearer

    What ingredients would you put into the mixture if you had to make the perfect English striker?

    Perhaps the physicality and goalscoring knack of Alan Shearer? Then you'd throw in Teddy Sheringham's vision, control and range of passing? You'd also want him to be as good in the air as Andy Carroll and as slick on the floor as Peter Beardsley. Pace like Michael Owen would help too.

    What a player he'd be. Surely we'd never produce a player like that?

    Teddy Sheringham
