Liverpool come undone at White Hart Lane.
Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham punished Liverpool’s indiscipline by coasting to a 4-0 victory on Sunday, with the visitors having two players sent off in their second successive Premier League loss.
Luka Modric set the tone for a rampant Tottenham display by curling in a stunning opener off the crossbar after seven minutes.
Already sluggish, Liverpool’s problems mounted when Charlie Adam was dismissed after a rash challenge on Scott Parker and Martin Skrtel saw red in the 63rd after being penalized again for fouling Gareth Bale.
Spurs quickly took advantage of their two-man edge, with Jermain Defoe and Adebayor scoring inside two minutes.
Adebayor, the former Arsenal striker on loan from Manchester City, fired in the fourth in stoppage time on his home debut against a hapless Liverpool side.
