Liverpool crush Spurs to top Premier League table

London, Mar.31: Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League table for the first time since Christmas with an emphatic four nil victory at home over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

With title rivals Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal all dropping points on Saturday, Liverpool enhanced their prospects of a first championship win since 1990.

Tottenham captain Younes Kaboul’s own goal set Liverpool on their way inside the opening two minutes, Sport24 reports.

Thereafter, Brendan Rodgers’s side never looked back.

Top scorer Luis Suarez doubled the lead with his 29th goal of the season after 25 minutes, before Philippe Coutinho added a third 10 minutes into the second half. Jordan Henderson completed the rout 15 minutes from the end, sealing an eighth consecutive league victory.

Tottenham have now lost their last three away games, and their season threatens to peter out. (ANI)
