Just when it looked like this gave had the potential to fizzle into a 0-0 draw, we’ve seen three goals in the last five minutes of playing time here.
Liverpool took the lead just before the break thanks to a tap in from Roberto Firmino, so this was the perfect start to the second half when Alexander Arnold make it 2-0 with a tidy finish, although Hugo Lloris could do better with this:

Unfortunately for Liverpool that two goal advantage didn’t last too long as Hojbjerg brought Spurs straight back into the game with a stunning strike:

Spurs had to find a way to get back into the game quickly, so it will be interesting to see if they can complete the comeback.
