FT: Spurs 1-3 Liverpool. The champions claim their first win in six league matches to move up to fourth spot and rekindle their own belief. Goals from Firmino, Alexander Arnold and Mane do the damage while Hojbjerg struck the goal of the night for the hosts, who stay sixth.
Spurs just want to the whistle now. Mourinho will be eager to know what the issue is for Kane and if he will miss any games. Liverpool will once again have to assess Matip.
Five minutes added.
So, are Liverpool back in business? They've got some huge games coming up, but this will do them the world of good. They will move four points behind City, having played a game more.

SPURS CHANGE: Bale on for Bergwijn.
Liverpool have looked firmly in control for long spells in this second period. Could this be the type of 'big win' they need to get them firing for the run-in?
- OnCurtis JonesLiverpool
LIVERPOOL CHANGE: Jones on for Thiago.
STAT: Liverpool have now recorded 800 goals away from home in the Premier League era.
Thiago takes aim from 25 yards out but flashes well wide from Firmino's neat lay-off.
STAT: A win will give Liverpool a 3rd successive league double over Spurs for the first time ever.
That was Mane's 10th of the season. Liverpool look to have found their goal-touch again!
- GoalSadio ManéLiverpool
GOAL! Mane smashes a rising shot beyond Lloris after Rodon failed to cut out Alexander-Arnold's cross.
Salah shows good strength before feeding Firmino on the right of the area. The Brazilian does well but rifles his effort into the near-post side netting from a difficult angle.
Milner does well to tee up Wijnaldum, who can't keep his effort on target.
VIDEO: Spurs reduce the arrears.
It did appear to bounce off Dier's arm first. Liverpool will feel hard-done by.
The goal has been chalked off. Still 2-1.
Martin Atkinson has been advised to check the monitor on the touchline.
GOAL? The Reds think they have restored their two-goal cushion. Salah thunders Mane's pass beyond Lloris but VAR is checking a hand ball from Firmino in the build up.
Thiago has returned with a very large white bandage on the top of his head.
Thiago has gone down the tunnel to have more work done to patch up his head. Liverpool are down to 10 at present as play resumes.
Thiago is caught in a Spurs sandwich as three players go up for a high ball. There's a collision of heads and play is halted for some treatment.
You said it, Mr Conn.

Phillips booked for a very clumsy tackle on Bergwijn.

- GoalRoberto FirminoLiverpool
GOAL! Firmino can't miss from two yards out after Mane had sneaked free on the left side of the box and rolled it into the Brazilian's path.
Four minutes added at the end of the first period.
SAVE! Lloris stands tall and does well to beat away Mane's thumping effort after another clever through ball from Firmino.
Liverpool almost cut Spurs to bits. Salah and TAA combine down the right. The latter fizzes a superb ball across the six-yard box, but Mane can't make up the ground to provide a finish.
What a tackle! Mane spins on to a pass from Firmino and looks set to pull the trigger, but Rodon gets across and makes a crucial sliding tackle.
Kane is back on again. His first act is to try and free Son, but Alisson comes right to the edge of his area to gather.
Dier and Kane are both down for Spurs. Dier feel awkwardly seeing off the run of Mane, while Kane went over on his ankle again as the hosts looked to break. Kane is the one who needs more treatment though.
Liverpool are patiently probing but once again they lack the tempo to find any gaps in that well-drilled Spurs wall.
- Yellow cardSteven BergwijnTottenham Hotspur
Bergwijn booked for a cynical challenge on TAA as Liverpool tried to counter.
- Yellow cardThiagoLiverpool
Thiago lunges in to a tackle he was never going to make and picks up the first caution of the evening.
Mane can only guide a clipped pass from Salah straight at Lloris after some slick build up play just outside the Spurs penalty box.
Firmino sees a long-range effort easily stopped by Lloris. Spurs respond at pace and send Son marauding free. The South Korean takes aim from just outside the box, but this time his shot is too close to Alisson.
STAT: Spurs have led for a league-high 850 minutes this season, and have not lost any of the 12 league games in which they scored first (W7, D5).
Kane trudges to the sideline but seems to be fine now. Relief for Jose and Co.
Some concern for Spurs as Kane goes down clutching his ankle after a tangle with Thiago. He looks to be in some pain and calls for the magic sponge.
Thiago rises to guide a header back across the Spurs area but Firmino can't react to get on the end of it.
Son goes for a Hollywood goal from the halfway line but it's no where near the goal.
DID YOU KNOW? Liverpool are yet to score a league goal in 2021, having failed to find the net in their last four top-flight matches. Not what you expect of this side and their attacking triumvirate.
Fair to say it's been a lively start to this one! Long may it continue.
NO GOAL! Still goalless. VAR checks and it's deemed offside. Let off for Liverpool and Mane.
GOAL? Son shows Mane how to do it as he coolly steers his shot beyond Alisson after a one-two with Kane. VAR checking.... it could be offside...
Huge chance for Mane. He's eight yards out but blazes wide!
Head to head in the league at Tottenham: Liverpool 24 wins, 17 draws, Tottenham 36 wins. More recently, the Merseysiders have won six on the spin against the Lilywhites in all competitions. Indeed, the Reds have lost just once in the last 18 meetings.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Liverpool get us underway.
Predictions? Crouchie's going for the draw!
DYNAMIC DUO: Nine of Son's 12 top-flight goals have been set up by Kane. A 10th assist tonight would set a new competition record.
STAT: Mourinho is unbeaten in all six of his Premier League home games as a manager against the reigning champions (W4, D2), winning the last three.
Curtis Jones: "I don't think we've been doing as well because of the goals that we haven't been scoring but we've been creating a lot. So hopefully we can put things right in the games that are coming up. Every team is a great team, you've got to give 100 per cent. Spurs have a particular style of play, they like to sit deep, win the ball and then go on the counter-attack. We have to be aware of that."
Jose Mourinho on his relationship with Klopp: "I’m not a friend of Jurgen because I never had time with Jurgen. With Jurgen, it’s five minutes before or after match. He’s a colleague I respect. I don’t have any problems with him and I believe he’s the same with me.”
Jurgen Klopp: "We want to be the team nobody wants to play against. People told us we were the best team in the world. We weren't but that's not a problem. We could beat the best team in the world and we still can, but we want to prove that on the pitch and we will."
No Dele Alli in the Spurs squad - is he set to leave in this window?
That's the team news sorted, so what about some gossip? Catch up on the latest from the continent with today's Euro Papers video.
A real blow for Liverpool as Fabinho misses out. That means the returning Jordan Henderson is likely to be at centre back again.
Spurs make 10 changes from their last outing in the FA Cup at Wycombe, However, it's just the one from their last PL encounter with Sheffield United. Matt Doherty comes in for the injured Sergio Reguilon.
