Tottenham face Liverpool in the Premier League as Jurgen Klopp’s in-form Reds face their toughest test of the season at Ange Postecoglou’s resurgent Spurs.
Both sides are unbeaten so far in the Premier League, with Liverpool winning five of their opening six fixtures to lead the challenge to Manchester City in the early standings. But Tottenham are only two points behind after battling back to a thrilling draw at rivals Arsenal last weekend, as James Maddison and Son Heung-min starred in the comeback.
Now Postecoglou’s side face a Liverpool team who are also reborn from last campaign with a new-look midfield. Dominik Szoboszlai’s stunning strike helped the Reds to their seventh win in a row in all competitions in midweek, and there will be talk of Klopp’s side fighting for the title should they beat Spurs for the first time this season.

Right on the stroke of half-time, Diaz will be disappointed not to have scored.
He was stretching to get a foot on the end of Robertson’s ball in, but it was just too far and it goes wide.
The half-time whistle blows right after.

Szoboszlai hooks a ball in to the far post which Robertson heads across goal. Gakpo brings it down and hits it on the turn, and Vicario is badly positioned and can’t get a hand to it.

Petering out now as we approach the half-time whistle. Sarr tries a shot from long range but it’s never troubling Alisson.
Udogie is booked now after fouling Gakpo near the half-way line as Liverpool looked to break.

Gomez wins a free-kick on the edge of the Spurs box after a silly challenge from Richarlison. Szoboszlai’s ball in is eventually cleared to Kulusevski but Son is wasteful.
There’ll be six minutes of stoppage time.

The game has calmed down as the half comes to an end, with both teams looking like they may be happy to play it out before re-grouping at half-time.
Spurs are knocking it around nicely though, and they make a clear-cut chance after some nice work from Son and Richarlison. It ends with Richarlison hitting the post with a shot across goal, but the flag is up for offside.

Alexis Mac Allister is booked for a late challenge on Udogie as Spurs looked to break.

Spurs have the first goal of the game courtesy of Son!
A fantastic ball from Maddison splits the defence and finds Richarlison who had made the run behind Gomez. The Brazilian squares it for a tap-in for Son, and Spurs are 1-0 up.
Son seems to be enjoying his new central role.

Spurs continue cutting through the Liverpool defence, with a well-worked move ending in Richarlison blazing over the bar.
60 minutes looks like a long time for Liverpool to hold out, but it’s worth remembering that they won both previous games where they received a red card.
And there’s almost a timely reminder as Luis Diaz breaks through and finishes well across Vicario. There’s a VAR check, but he was just offside.
Chris Wilson30 September 2023 18:05
Spurs are certainly in the ascendency now, dominating possession and creating a couple of decent chances.
Kulusevski makes a mazy run in the box before his shot is blocked, before Maddison has a tame shot saved by Alisson.

VAR Correction - RED CARD!
Simon Hooper overturns his decision, and Curtis Jones is sent off!
Bissouma is still receiving treatment, but there was no malice in the challenge. It’s dubious, but Jones was over the ball and impacted Bissouma’s anke.
That is Liverpool’s third red card this season.
