This time he does it!

It's a super delivery from Perisic on the left but Kane's header goes just wide.

Robertson crosses from the left. Davies heads it away.
That Dier mistake could really affect his World Cup hopes.
Dier makes a terrible mistake, by trying to head it back to Lloris, but totally misses it and it comes off his shoulder. Salah picks up the loose ball and dinks it over Lloris to score his and Liverpool's second.

Thiago hits it first time from the edge of the box. Dier is there to block it.
Spurs - 6
Liverpool - 4
Konate does brilliantly to rob the ball off Sessegnon, who slid across Alexander-Arnold in the box. Van Dijk is a fan of Konate and reckons he's better than Jamie Carragher was!
Liverpool are holding onto possession here. Perisic is playing up front with Kane for Spurs and there are two compact Spurs lines just keeping Liverpool in front of them. Spurs are happy to stand off Liverpool despite being 1-0 down.
Liverpool lead 1-0. And they certainly need three points but there's a long way to go.
Sessegnon goes down in the box. Alexander-Arnold gives him a nudge in the back. Spurs think it's a penalty but referee Andy Madley says no. They definitely have been given.
Perisic hits the post!
It's a super cross by Kane on the right but the Croatian's header deflects off Alisson and then comes off the post.
Spurs have woken up!
He hadn't scored in his last three matches against Spurs but Salah gives Liverpool the lead.
Nunez takes a touch in the box, swivels and then passes to Salah. Salah slots home perfectly from just inside the box to give the away side the lead in London.
Pre-match, Trent Alexander-Arnold suggested something is missing at Liverpool.
"Clearly as a team something’s not going right, it’s not going as well as we want it to go. That’s something for everyone to think about, for everyone to address and make sure we put it right, especially next week against Spurs, top-four rivals."
Nunez cuts in on his right foot from the left and curls an effort just wide of Lloris's left-hand post. The former Benfica forward has started well on the left-hand side. 0-0
A win for Liverpool today would move them into 8th place. They are 10 points behind Spurs at this early stage of the season.
Nunez smashes a volley towards the far top corner from the left but Lloris does well to stop the Uruguayan's effort.
A win for Spurs today will send them back into 3rd in the table.

Spurs vs Liverpool
Matches between Spurs and Liverpool have tended to be intense affairs over the past few recent seasons. Liverpool tend to dominate the ball in this one. Conte's Spurs will invite them to come forward and hit them on the counter, looking to get in behind Klopp's high-line in transition.
The last meeting between the sides was a 1-1 draw at Anfield in May. Son put Spurs in front before Colombian forward Luis Diaz scored the equaliser.
Villa beat United

Liverpool in London
Liverpool return to domestic action after beating Napoli 2-0 in the Champions League in midweek. The Anfield outfit have progressed to the last 16 of the competition but their domestic form has been poor by their usual standards. Jurgen Klopp's side are 10th at the time of writing.
The staging of the World Cup this winter has had a knock-on effect with domestic leagues having to modify their schedule to cater for the dates and in Europe, all major top flights will come to a halt as the action in Qatar gets underway.
