The Reds returned to the top of the EPL table for the first time since Christmas with an emphatic 4-0 win at Anfield to Tottenham Hotspur yesterday.
It took only two minutes for the first of many defensive errors by the visitors, when Liverpool’s Glen Johnson was allowed to cross from the right and force an own goal by Younes Kaboul. Then substitute centreback Michael Dawson inadvertently set Luis Suarez clear in the 25th for the Uruguayan to put away a left foot shot low into the goalmouth’s far corner – eclipsing Robbie Fowler's record of 28 goals in a Premier League season for Liverpool in the process. This was followed by Philippe Coutinho finishing off a wonderful team goal in the 55th with a low drive from 25 meters before Jordan Henderson's inswinging free kick missed everyone in the area and landed in the bottom corner (75).
