Liverpool fight back to beat Tottenham 2-1 as Jordan Henderson scored an equaliser six minutes after halftime break before Mohammed Salah penalty kick sealed the game that keep the Reds in perfect shape.

Liverpool were made to work for the victory, needing several big chances to score before Henderson eventually slotted his half-volley into the far corner early in the second half.

That came moments after Son Heung-min had smacked the crossbar for the second time in the match – his first effort was nodded in by Kane from seven yards out for the opener.

But Liverpool’s pressure eventually took its toll when Serge Aurier caught the back of Sadio Mane’s leg and gave away a penalty, which Salah smashed past a stationary Gazzaniga with 15 minutes left.

Salah was substituted in the 85th minute with a recurrence of the ankle injury which kept him out last week’s draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford, but manager Klopp said “it’s not a massive issue”.
