The game which saw Liverpool take a two goal lead, ended with fans at the edge of their seats as Tottenham tried to get an equalizer.

Liverpool continued their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season with an authoritative 2-1 win over Tottenham.

Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs were again out of sorts following their 2-1 loss to Watford before the international break, with substitute Erik Lamela’s stoppage-time goal giving the scoreline a very flattering look for the hosts.

Georginio Wijnaldum has finally broken a remarkable goal run, with the Liverpool midfielder recording his first Premier League effort away from home during a meeting with Tottenham.

The Dutch midfielder arrived in English football back in 2015.

Newcastle acquired his services from PSV and saw him record 11 top-flight efforts during a one-season stay at St James’ Park.

That duck has now been broken with a looping header against Tottenham at Wembley.

Wijnaldum opened the scoring against Spurs after seeing Michel Vorm fail to deal with a James Milner corner.

His fellow countryman recovered enough to dive across the face of his goal and claw at a header which drifted over Kieran Trippier, but the ball crossed the line before he could clear.
