SOCCER

Liverpool won their first Premier League game of 2021 at the fourth time of asking.

They also brought their top flight goal drought to an impressive end with a 3-1 win at Tottenham.

Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander Arnold and Sadio Mane scored the goals at the new White Hart Lane.

The win moves Liverpool into fourth above West Ham, who they play in London on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp will hope that Fabinho recovers from the ‘minor muscle injury’ that forced him out of last night’s game.

Joel Matip was also withdrawn at half time last night.

Spurs face an anxious wait over the seriousness of the injury that saw Harry Kane taken off during the break.
