DRAMATIC Spurs win, Van Dijk future UPDATE, Lijnders ADMIRATION: Liverpool FC news recap

Liverpool's faint title hopes remained alive on Sunday after a 4-2 victory against Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp's team dominated the first half, with Mohamed Salah scoring a header 16 minutes in, followed by Andrew Robertson doubling the lead just before halftime.

Cody Gakpo extended the lead to 3-0 early in the second half, and Harvey Elliott's thunderous strike seemed to seal the win.

However, late goals from Richarlison and Son Heung-min made the final minutes tense, exacerbated by a VAR check on Joe Gomez's challenge for a potential penalty.


Klopp admits he may have misjudged his substitutions

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp conceded he may have made error in judgment regarding his substitutions during his side's 4-2 win.

With the score at 4-0, Klopp made a double substitution which coincided with Spurs's best period of the game.

"The changes we made, would I do exactly the same again? I'm not sure!" Klopp admitted.


Bajcetic makes first-team return

One of the two players introduced by Klopp was Stefan Bajcetic.

The 19-year-old, making his first senior appearance in over seven months, entered the fray as a substitute for Wataru Endo with half an hour remaining.


Did former Red have a role in Elliott's goal?

Harvey Elliott stunned fans with his breathtaking goal on Sunday - and a former Red may have had a role to play in it.

Speaking after the game, Daniel Sturridge revealed on Sky Sports that he had spoken to Elliott a few weeks prior.

But what did he tell him?

Arne Slot can help UNLOCK Darwin Nunez

Incoming head coach Arne Slot is renowned for improving his players, and striker Santiago Gimenez is a prime example of this.

Slot turned the €6 million signing, who had never returned a double-digit goalscoring season, into a lethal poacher who has now scored 47 goals in just two seasons for Feyenoord.

Can he replicate this with Darwin Nunez?
