Roberto Firmino’s last-minute header broke Tottenham’s stubborn resistance at Anfield and sent Liverpool to the top of the Premier League table.
The entertaining encounter looked set to end in a stalement until Firmino rose high and headed past Spurs keeper Hugo Lloris from Andrew Robertson’s corner in the 90th minute.
Mohamed Salah had opened the scoring when his shot took a big deflection off Eric Dier and looped over Lloris in the 26th minute.
But Son Heung-Min’s 33rd minute strike levelled the game for Spurs.
Spurs went ahead to create more scoring chances in the second half which were wasted, with Steven Bergwijn firing wide then hitting a post when clean through and Harry Kane heading over from point-blank range.
Jose Mourinho’s men rued their missed chances when Firmino made the unexpected header for Klopp’s men to snatch the top spot in Premier League.
