Half-time at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Liverpool

Roberto Firmino’s crisp strike eight minutes before the break separates the sides.

Firmino saw an early effort cleared off the line by Spurs debutant, Japhet Tanganga, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s follow-up hit a post.

Spurs responded, with Lucas Moura, Heung-Min Son and Dele Alli all going close.

The game has been played at a frenetic pace, but it’s the Premier League leaders who hold the upper hand.
