Liverpool have gone to the top of the table in the Premier League after a dramatic win over Tottenham Hotspur in their Premier League clash at Anfield on Sunday evening.
The Reds had to dig deep to secure the three points at stake at the expense of Champions League chasers Tottenham Hotspur via a 2-1 win.
Brazilian international Roberto Firmino gave Liverpool a well deserved first-half lead off a cross from left-back Andy Robertson.
Liverpool held on to that lead until Lucas Moura equalised for the visitors in the last quarter of the game.
Moussa Sissoko had the chance to win the game for Tottenham Hotspur in the last ten minutes before a howler from the Spurs goalkeeper gave Liverpool a crucial win.
French World Cup winner Lloris parried a tame header from Salah in the way of Spurs centre back Toby Alderweireld who put through his own net unconsciously.
The Liverpool winner came on the stroke of full-time.
The priceless victory over Spurs was enough to take Liverpool above defending champions Manchester City at the Premier League summit though the Citizens have a game in hand.
Manchester City had gone to the top of the table 24 hrs earlier after the 2-0 win at Fulham.
