Liverpool destroy Spurs to go top of EPL

Sunday 30th March , 2014 6:36 pm


Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League as they humiliated a woeful Tottenham side at Anfield.

The game was live on Citi FM as part of the weekend’s Premier League games.

A second-minute Younes Kaboul own goal, following Glen Johnson’s low cross, put the Reds on course for an eighth successive league victory.

Luis Suarez made it 2-0 after Michael Dawson’s error, and the Uruguayan then had a header pushed onto the post.

Philippe Coutinho added a third goal from 25 yards and Jordan Henderson’s low free-kick sealed the rout.

Victory moved the Reds two points ahead of Chelsea and four in front of Manchester City, though Manuel Pellegrini’s side have played two games fewer than their title rivals.

However, with both Chelsea and City still to visit Anfield, Brendan Rodgers’s team have their destiny in their own hands. Six wins from their last six matches will see them win the league title for the first time since 1989-90.

This game was expected to present a tough challenge, but the hosts – who last topped the table on Boxing Day, before a 2-1 defeat at Manchester City – dominated from the off and should have won by a wider margin.

As well as underlining the Reds’ place at the heart of the title fight, the match also served as another reality check for a Tottenham side that face a battle to hang on to sixth place and Europa League qualification.

The Londoners remain well short of the quality needed for a Champions League spot, and have only taken one point from eight league games against the top four this season.
