That is all for today - thanks for tuning in!
Liverpool return in midweek to face Fulham at home while Tottenham welcome Crystal Palace to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday.
The full-time whistle blows and calls to an end a truly bonkers 90 minutes of Premier League football with Jota's last-minute winner securing a dramatic 4-3 home win for Liverpool against Tottenham. The home side were at their brilliant best racing into a three-goal lead after just 15 minutes before Kane pulled one back before half-time. Son's finish further reduced the deficit before Richarlison thought he had rescued a point for Spurs in injury time with his header from a free-kick. But a catastrophic error from Lucas Moura - straight from kick-off - allowed Jota to run through and score just a minute later to secure all three points for Liverpool who now move above Spurs and into fifth.
Diogo Jota
90' + 4' GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! LIVERPOOL WIN IT AT THE DEATH!! 4-3!! Oh, my word - what have we just seen? Straight from kick-off, it's a long ball up from the back. Moura - only on the pitch a matter of moments - inexplicably opts against clearing the ball away and tries to play it back to the goalkeeper. It's horribly mishit and Jota gathers the loose ball before firing across Forster and into the net. How on earth have Spurs thrown that away?
Yellow Card
90' + 3' Richarlison is booked for taking his shirt off in the celebration.
Son Heung-Min
90' + 3' It's a great cross from Son which allows Richarlison to attack with his header looping over Alisson and into the net.
90' + 3' GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! SPURS EQUALISE!! 3-3!! What a comeback and who else could it be than the former Everton man Richarlison? Son whips in the free-kick and Richarlison meets it. It's headed into the ground but it loops up and over Alisson. It's bedlam in the away end and having gone 3-0 down after 15 minutes this is a remarkable turnaround.
J. Milner
Yellow Card
90' + 1' Milner is late into a challenge with Kane and gets a yellow card.
90' There will be six minutes of added time to end this game.
A. Danjuma
I. Perišić
90' Perisic also comes off with Danjuma replacing him.
Lucas Moura
Pedro Porro
90' Spurs make a double change as they chase an equaliser. First off is Pedro who makes way for Lucas.
89' Spurs whip in a free-kick after Salah challenges Davies but Liverpool are able to clear.
J. Milner
C. Jones
86' Liverpool's opening goalscorer Jones comes off with Milner replacing him in the middle of the park.
85' Richarlison is off the bench and straight into the thick of it. He goes down claiming he was pulled by Konate but the referee waves away the protests.
O. Skipp
84' Skipp will come off after that challenge with Richarlison replacing the midfielder.
82' There is a pause in play as Skipp receives treatment following that collision with Jota.
Diogo Jota
Yellow Card
81' Jota catches Skipp with a high boot and goes into the referee's book.
79' And just like that, Spurs are on the front foot. Son nearly latches onto another ball over the top before Skipp's burst into the box is ended by a well-timed albeit risky tackle from Konate. Hojbjerg sees his header go wide moments later as Spurs continue to chase an equaliser.
C. Romero
77' Romero with a lovely weight of pass to play through Son to score.
Son Heung-Min
77' GOOOOAAAALLLL!!! SPURS HAVE ANOTHER BACK!! 3-2!! Do we have a game on our hands? Romero goes some way to redeeming himself after his challenge for the penalty with a delightful ball over the Liverpool defence. Son is onside and rushes onto the loose ball and curls his finish beyond Alisson and into the net.
75' Porro gets into a good area for a cross but the delivery is poor and it sails out for a goal kick.
D. Núñez
C. Gakpo
73' Liverpool make another change as Gakpo comes off for Nunez.
73' A good period of Liverpool possession goes to waste as Van Dijk lets fly from distance and the effort sails wide of the mark.
I. Konaté
Yellow Card
70' Konate grabs Son's shirt as Spurs look to break and the Liverpool defender is shown a yellow.
67' With that sub, Spurs look to have moved to a 3-5-2 with Kane and Son forming a front two up top.
P. Sarr
D. Kulusevski
66' Spurs make their first change as Kulusevski departs for Sarr.
65' Jota's first involvement sees the forward climb to meet a cross but he can't get over the ball and it floats over the bar.
64' Perisic hauled back Salah before the subs were made but Spurs clear the resulting free-kick out for a corner. Alexander-Arnold delivers but Romero can clear away with a commanding header.
Diogo Jota
L. Díaz
63' Goalscorer Diaz also makes way and is replaced by Jota.
J. Henderson
H. Elliott
63' Liverpool make the game's first changes with a double sub. First off is Elliott with club captain Henderson replacing him in midfield.
61' Elliott tries to find Gakpo in behind but there is too much weight on the pass and Forster can gather the ball.
59' Salah does well to keep a long ball in play but his cross isn't good enough and Spurs clear it away.
57' Porro, this time, with Spurs' latest effort. It's a vicious strike from range and has to be tipped over the bar from Alisson. From the corner, Liverpool break but Spurs recover to clear the danger.
54' OFF THE POST TWICE!! Two golden chances go begging for Spurs. Kulusevski finds Son on the edge of the box and he shifts it onto his right before cannoning an effort of the right post. Moments later Romero stretches a leg out and connects with Kane's cross but his effort this time flicks the outside of the left post. Promising signs from Spurs.
Son Heung-Min
Yellow Card
52' Son loses the ball and pulls back the shirt of Gakpo as the Liverpool forward looks to break - it's a yellow card for the Spurs forward.
51' Alexander-Arnold delivers and it's headed towards the six-yard box by Van Dijk but Romero can clear.
50' Robertson tries to clip a ball towards Elliott at the back post but Perisic is on hand to turn it behind for a corner.
46' We are underway in the second half.
That first half perfectly encapsulated Spurs' season. A woeful start to the game with comical defending that has virtually put the game beyond their reach. And yet, with just a two-minute period, they show the attacking talent that they have and their ability to hurt teams. It's an almighty mess to try and untangle and judging off the first 45 minutes today, Ryan Mason is no closer to figuring it out.
A very strange first half draws to an end with Liverpool leading 3-1 against Spurs. The home side flew out of the traps and were 3-0 up after just 15 minutes of abject Spurs defending. An unmarked Jones volleyed home from Alexander-Arnold's cross after three minutes before Diaz netted on his return to the starting lineup and Salah converted from the spot. Liverpool took their foot off the gas, though, and a hectic two-minute period almost saw Spurs score three times in response. Son saw an effort cleared off the line whilst Alison made a superb save to deny Kulusevski. Kane did grab one - volleying home from Perisic's cross - to leave Spurs with at least the faintest glimmer of hope heading into the second half.
45' + 2' Robertson delivers a late corner for Liverpool but Van Dijk can't quite direct an effort on goal.
45' There will be two minutes of added time to end this first half.
44' Son rattles the post with a superb curling effort but it wouldn't have counted as the offside flag goes up shortly after.
41' SAVE!! What a period of play from Spurs. It's now Kulusevski who bears down on goal. He jinks past the Liverpool defence to carve out an opportunity but it's a great save by the trailing leg of Alisson to prevent Spurs getting a second. Could there be life in this game yet?
I. Perišić
40' Great work from Perisic down the left and a perfectly-waited cross to find Kane who made no mistake.
H. Kane
40' GOOOOOAAAALLL!! SPURS HAVE ONE BACK!! 3-1! Liverpool have taken their foot completely off the gas having gone ahead. Perisic is in acres of space down the left and bursts towards the penalty area. The wing-back beats Van Dijk before clipping a ball into the box where the unmarked Kane can volley through the legs of Alisson. That's one back.
39' OFF THE LINE!! Spurs finally come forward with the ball and Son has a great chance with the goal gaping but Van Dijk recovers superbly to make a clearance off the line.
37' Robertson gets into another good area down the left and can cross but it's beyond Liverpool's forwards and flies out for a goal kick.
35' Diaz is welcomed back onto the pitch and is okay to continue.
34' There is a pause in play as Diaz is down receiving attention after a challenge with Skipp.
32' Alexander-Arnold is given room to cross but Spurs can clear. The ball is recycled as far as Robertson and his cross finds the rising Elliott but the midfielder can't get enough contact on his header to divert it on target.
29' A rare venture forward for Spurs sees Kane through on goal. He opts to square it to Son who fails to get on the end of the pass but it would not have counted as the offside flag goes up shortly after.
27' Tottenham are winless in five Premier League away games, losing as many games in this run (3) has they had in their previous 16 on the road beforehand (W8 D5). It's their longest run without an away league win since a run of 12 between February and November 2019.
24' With just 24 minutes gone, the game already feels like somewhat of a testimonial. Spurs are trying to get on the ball and their fans are ironically jeering every pass they make. It could yet be a long 65 minutes for those fans who made the trip up north.
21' More chances for Liverpool as the ball is laid back to Salah on the edge of the box. The Egyptian tries to bend it around the Spurs defenders and into the far corner but he can't quite pull it off and the ball goes wide.
18' Liverpool break up the pitch once again and Gakpo has all kinds of space down the left. He cuts inside but his effort is deflected behind for a corner. Alexander-Arnold delivers but Konate can't direct his header on goal and Spurs clear.
Mohamed Salah
Penalty Goal
15' GOAAAALLLL!!! SALAH CONVERTS!! 3-0! Salah steps up having missed his previous two penalties but sends this one high and down the middle with Forster diving to his right. 3-0 within 15 minutes - electric from Liverpool, woeful from Spurs.
14' PENALTY!! And it gets worse for Spurs - it's a shocking challenge from Romero as Gakpo finds the ball in the box. He sends the Dutchman to the ground and it's as simple a decision as any referee is likely to have to make. Comical defending from Spurs.
12' Gakpo finds more space in behind but the Spurs defence recover this time and the shooting opportunity is snuffed out.
9' Spurs have got nowhere near Liverpool in these opening nine minutes. They conceded five in 21 minutes against Newcastle and they've started in a similar fashion here.
C. Gakpo
5' It's a lovely run in behind from Gakpo and a nice cut back for Diaz to finish.
L. Díaz
5' GOOOOAALLLLL!!! TWO IN FIVE MINUTES!! 2-0!! Goodness electric start from Liverpool and they have their second after just five minutes. The build-up is down the right again before Gakpo ghosts in behind Dier. He cuts it back from the byline and Diaz comes in from the left to meet the cross and fire into the goal from close range. It's his first start since October and what a way to celebrate it for the Colombian.
T. Alexander-Arnold
3' Alexander-Arnold has been back in the assists recently and it's another fine cross for Jones to open the scoring.
C. Jones
3' GOOOOAAAALLL!!! LIVERPOOL AHEAD! 1-0!! Three minutes is all it takes and Liverpool lead at home. They've had the lion's share of the ball in these early stages and it's the in-form Alexander-Arnold that is at the heart of it. It's a beautifully clipped ball to the back post and Jones is completely unmarked at the back post and finishes cooly to give his side the lead.
1' Spurs get this first half underway!
Liverpool have lost just one of their last 20 Premier League games against Spurs (W13 D6), and are unbeaten in 10 since a 4-1 loss at Wembley Stadium in October 2017.
Mason makes two changes from Tottenham's 2-2 draw with Manchester United. Davies comes into the back three replacing Lenglet while Kulusevski is preferred to Richarlison in the forward line.
Klopp makes three changes from Liverpool's 2-1 win against West Ham in midweek. Konate, who was rested as a precaution, returns alongside Van Dijk with Matip dropping to the bench. Jones replaces Henderson in midfield and Diaz starts with Jota dropping to the bench having picked up a slight knock to his back.
TOTTENHAM SUBS: Lucas Moura, Clement Lenglet, Davinson Sanchez, Japhet Tanganga, Richarlison, Brandon Austin, Arnaut Danjuma, Pape Sarr, Alfie Devine.
TOTTENHAM (3-4-2-1): Fraser Forster; Cristian Romero, Eric Dier, Ben Davies; Pedro Porro, Oliver Skipp, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Ivan Perisic; Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-Min; Harry Kane.
LIVERPOOL SUBS: Fabio Carvalho, Diogo Jota, Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson, Caoimhin Kelleher, Joel Matip, James Milner, Darwin Nunez, Kostas Tsimikas.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Harvey Elliott, Fabinho, Curtis Jones; Mohamed Salah, Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz.
Spurs continue to lurch from crisis to crisis with Ryan Mason the man now charged with trying to resurrect the London side's stuttering bid for a top-four spot. A week on from the 6-1 humbling against Newcastle and it is still difficult to know what the mood is amongst the fans and the dressing room. An encouraging second half against Manchester United in midweek saw them recover a 2-2 draw but they will need an almighty improvement if they are to get a result today away at Liverpool. Should they manage it, they would move to within six points of Manchester United in fourth.
With both sides vying for a spot in the top four, this crunch fixture represents a must-win for both sides. After disappointing defeats to Bournemouth and Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp's side are enjoying a five-game unbeaten run and have won their last three in a row. The Reds had to come from behind to beat West Ham on Wednesday and another victory today would move them above Spurs and into fifth.
Hello and welcome to this live commentary for the Premier League clash between Liverpool and Tottenham from Anfield.
