Tottenham Hotspur ended a five-game losing streak against Liverpool by surviving the Jurgen Klopp affect to hold the Reds to a 0-0 stalemate at White Hart Lane.
The two top-four hopefuls cancelled each other out this afternoon, with Divock Origi hitting the crossbar for the visitors and Harry Kane passing up a couple of great chances for Spurs.
Tottenham are unbeaten in the Premier League since the opening day, but their fifth draw in eight games leaves them seventh in the table – a point above Liverpool, who prop up the bottom half.

GK: Hugo Lloris – 7/10
Tottenham’s skipper was rarely tested, but he remained alert throughout. The French stopper displayed excellent pace and judgement to race off his line to sweep up a couple of Liverpool through balls.
RB: Kyle Walker – 6/10
Didn’t get forward as often as he might have liked, but did his defensive job well having composed himself after a few early mistakes.
CB: Toby Alderweireld – 7/10
Solid as ever. His arrival this summer has been one of the main factors behind Tottenham’s huge defensive improvement.
CB: Jan Vertonghen – 8/10
Excellent! Vertonghen didn’t give fellow Belgian Origi a sniff in open play and showed brilliant composure when put under pressure by the high Liverpool press.
LB: Danny Rose – 6/10
Was in the wars as James Milner kicked lumps out of him throughout. Rose was the more adventurous of the two Spurs full-backs, but did not do a great deal when he did reach the byline.
