Video: Mohamed Salah hands Liverpool lead as deflected strike loops into the net vs Spurs

In the 25th minute of tonight’s mammoth Premier League tie against Spurs, Liverpool took the lead after some brilliant play from Curtis Jones sparked an attacking opportunity.

Jones played a tidy one-two with Roberto Firmino before continuing to drive forward for the Reds, the academy graduate eventually lost the ball but it bobbled right it into Mohamed Salah’s path.

The Egyptian superstar pounced on the loose ball with a powerful shot, which looped into the back of the net and out of Hugo Lloris’ reach after a deflection from Eric Dier.
