Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool, Premier League: as it happened

Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool - Mario Balotelli makes his debut Latest score, news update, live match report and result from White Hart Lane

Raheem Sterling gives Liverpool the lead at Tottenham

FULL TIME: TOTTENHAM 0 LIVERPOOL 3 Eyes were on Mario, but Raheem Sterling was the man for Liverpool. He scored a nice goal and really gave Spurs a tough time, Gerrard got a penalty and exciting young full back Moreno scored a cracker. The Liverpool centre backs were shaky but with Adebayor barely present and the Spurs attackers failing to make much of an impression, it hardly mattered. Spurs look a very long way short of the top four on this evidence. Encouraging for Liverpool on several fronts. Thanks for reading. Cheers.
90+ mins: There will be three minutes added on. Luis Enrique has replaced man of the match Raheem Sterling. Liverpool a bit sloppy at the back in the closing stages but it matters not, because here is the final whistle.
89 mins: Spurs pressing hard for a consolation, Adebayor reckons he should have had a penalty - and you have to agree. Lovren has practically ripped his shirt off in the area there, and that really should have been a pen.
87 mins: Lamela hasn't given up, he's played okay and has won a corner down the left.
84 mins: Niall Quinn is backing his fellow forward to the hilt here. The anonymous Adebayor is offside, ruining a useful bit of play by his colleagues. Quinny: "he's just drifted offside." Picture shows Adebayor wandering around fully 8 feet off.
83 mins: Decent move from Spurs, handy cross in from Davies but Liverpool deal with it well.
81 mins: Neat little move between Sterling and Sturridge ends with the latter trying to curl the ball wide, but he cannot quite get enough action on it. Dino Mazzone from Montréal writes

78 mins: Spurs have a good position but seem to be totally unsure of themselves in the final third, they end up passing the ball backwards twice until it ends up with Andros Townsend who takes a touch, looks up, and plays a precise 40 yard ball out for a throw. No Spurs player within 15 yards of that pass. We're not going to be calling him Super Sub at this rate. Wasn't he the saviour of English football about 18 months ago?
77 mins: Here come Liverpool again, passing it around nicely and enjoying themselves on a pleasant North London Sunday afternoon.
75 mins: Hull have got one back v the Villa.

73 mins: After Spurs give it away yet again, Sterling feeds Henderson for a so-so shot.
71 mins: Danny Rose taken off and limps down the tunnel, we hear that he has a thigh problem. That is a shame for the lad, who was named in the England squad recently. Ben Davies gets a chance.
69 mins: A simply wonderful run from Raheeeeeeeeeeem, beating players at will, twisting this way then that, finding some space in the area, only the keeper to beat, but then a pathetic dribbler of a toe-poked shot denies him Goal of the Season.
67 mins: Sterling still fancies it, another electric run from him. From the resulting corner, Lovren heads over. Kevin Parker writes:

65 mins: Liverpool firmly ensonsced in the Tottenham half, a spell of pressure ends with Sturridge shooting harmlessly over. Shepherd Maoneke writes:

61 mins: Mario has run his race for today; he's taken off in favour of Markovic. Can is on for joe Allen. Damian Durrant with a timely email:

GoalGOAL! Alberto Moreno with a sensational solo effort! He robs Andros Townsend of the England man's first touch and starts haring down the left. Andros cannot get near him! Moreno surges forward and cracks a hard low shot across the goal, it beats the keeper Lloris at his left hand and nestles into the corner of the net for a splendid third goal that surely clinches the game. Tottenham 0 Liverpool 3 (Moreno 60)
59 mins: Andros Townsend and Mousa Dembele come on, can they provide some spark for Spurs? Eriksen and Bentaleb subbed off.
58 mins: Game quiet.
57 mins: Mario quiet.
56 mins: Adebayor quiet
