Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Liverpool: Mohamed Salah scores a brace as the Reds win


Mohamed Salah scored a first-half brace at Tottenham on Sunday

Mohamed Salah struck twice in the first half as Liverpool secured their first away win in the Premier League this season with victory at Tottenham.

Liverpool had lost their previous two league games against Nottingham Forest and Leeds United, so manager Jurgen Klopp will be delighted with this win for Spurs as they are running as rivals in the top four.

Salah was the inspiration, curling home a sharp left-footed finish from Darwin Nunez’s pass after 11 minutes, then calmly slotting home Eric Dier’s back-header to double Liverpool’s lead five minutes before half-time.

Spurs, without the injured Son Heung-min, were never out of the game either side of half-time with Ivan Perisic hitting the woodwork before Harry Kane pulled one back with 20 minutes remaining. But they failed to get one of the comebacks that have become their trademark this season.
